Millions of people around the world now use remanufactured ink and toner cartridges in order to cut down on printing costs. Since original brand inks and toners are highly expensive, both business and home users now rely upon either remanufactured or compatible printer cartridges.
Both remanufactured and compatible cartridges can help you save up to 75% on printing costs! In the long run, these savings can add up to a huge sum.
Here in this post, we will discuss how remanufactured ink and toner cartridges are made. First, let us understand the basics.
A remanufactured ink or toner cartridge is an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) printer cartridge that has been cleaned, repaired, and refilled with ink or toner of similar quality.
Reputed sellers refurbish used OEM printer cartridges in controlled environments. At InkjetsClub, for instance, used printer cartridges are disassembled and cleaned by trained technicians in ISO-certified facilities.
Damaged printer cartridge components, if any, are replaced so that a remanufactured or refurbished ink or toner cartridge works as new.
Inkjet and laser toner cartridges meant to be remanufactured are sourced from printer users around the world.
Here at InkjetsClub, we also accept used OEM ink and toner cartridges for recycling. You can avail of a $10 discount on the next purchase each time you recycle a used printer cartridge with us.
Many sellers also collect used OEM printer cartridges through fundraising initiatives and community recycling programs.
The steps listed below outline the process of making remanufactured ink and toner cartridges at InkjetsClub. Most sellers follow more or less a similar process for making remanufactured printer cartridges.
If you have in the past been disappointed with Costco refills or tried refilling cartridges at home, the process outlined above should make it clear how remanufactured printer cartridges are made to perform and deliver quality comparable to expensive OEM ink and toner cartridges.
Printer manufacturers cannot prevent you from using remanufactured cartridges or third-party consumables.
Just make sure you shop with a reliable seller. Do not buy from anonymous sellers online even if refurbished cartridges are offered at throwaway prices. Poorly refurbished cartridges can damage your printer.
When you buy remanufactured ink and toner cartridges for HP, Brother, Epson, and Canon printers, you do not just save on printing costs.
You help the environment too.
Since remanufactured printer cartridges are made from recycled (almost entirely) and reconstituted OEM cartridges and parts, it helps prevent even bigger piles of non-degradable plastic-waste ending up in a landfill somewhere.
