One of the major expenses that business owners incur is that of buying printer cartridges.  Since the invention of printers it seems that companies have been trying to convince their customers that the only solution to needing more ink is buying a new cartridge directly from the manufacturer of their printer.  While this is definitely one solution, it is neither the best nor the most cost effective way to run your business.  As you have probably noticed, ink and toner prices are drastically inflated to the point that you find yourself cringing every time you hit the print button.

No more.  You have found the answers to saving money on your ink and toner costs.  Here are our top three ways to drastically reduce your ink and toner costs.

Get Refilled

When your ink or toner cartridge runs low, there is no need to make a run for the store.  You no longer have to spend an exorbitant amount of money on ink.  Now you can have your ink and toner cartridges safely and professionally refilled.  Rather than buying a whole new cartridge, refilling can be done at a fraction of the cost and without losing print quality.  Using a professional refilling service gives you the peace of mind that your ink is in good hands.

Buy Generic

When you do have to buy a new cartridge –either because yours is damaged or worn out – you can choose to buy a generic brand.  Generic brands can save you a bundle on ink and toner cartridges and can be refilled, sometimes more easily than name brand products.  These inks are manufactured to be as close as possible to the manufacturer’s cartridges and you will not be able to tell a difference in the quality of the ink.

Take Care of Your Cartridge

The best way to ensure that your cartridge can be refilled multiple times is to take care of it.  This means that once the print quality becomes affected by low ink levels, you take the cartridge out and bring it in to be refilled.  Running your cartridge dry can damage it and render it incapable of being refilled.  Also, keep an extra set of cartridges on hand so that you can just swap them out when the ink gets low without losing any production time.

These simple tricks can make a huge difference in your bottom line.  You will be shocked at how much you can save on your ink and toner costs using these techniques.
