You are not alone in thinking that buying ink cartridges for a printer is becoming too expensive. Most printer manufacturers have devised ways to sell the cartridges at a more expensive price by selling you a printer at cheaper price and then demanding you use only their cartridges. The ink cartridges sold in this way are up to ten times more expensive than the ones bought in other ways.
Not only do you have to cover up for the price of the printer you bought cheaply, but also you have to cover for the advertisements of those companies. Those advertisements are meant to convince you to buy only their products and to shun away from any third company’s ink cartridges. Sometime the so called brand ink cartridges may just be refilled cartridges and still you pay the full price for them!
With the online shops available now, you can save more money by buying online; here you have a great range of variety to choose from. Some of those shops give guarantees of returning your money if you are not satisfied with the product.The order and shipping of the product takes place on the same day.
You can save money when buying the cartridges in the following ways.
You can buy a compatible ink cartridge which is made from new parts and which meets the OEM requirements for the ink cartridges of your printer.
You can opt to buy the remanufactured ink cartridges. Those are cartridges collected and refilled by a third party company and are retested to make sure that they meet the quality requirements and that they have the same quantity of ink as the new ones.
You can refill the inkjet cartridges yourself. If you purchase your own refill kit and follow simple instructions, you can refill your cartridges up to ten times instead of buying new brand ink cartridges. You can be refilling the remanufactured or compatible empty cartridges, therefore you can save more money.
If you are not printing the final copy, use the draft mode to save the ink you use. If you will use color in the final copy, you can still use white and black color until you are ready to print the colored last copy.
If you are not satisfied with the copy of the prints, see if you can only change the drum alone instead of the whole ink cartridge.
The best way to get all the best printing equipment including ink cartridges, you need is to purchase them online.
