Online Ink Buying Guide

ink suppliesBuying ink on the Internet is one of the smartest ways to cut down on your office supply costs. Not only can you compare prices, you can get many great deals only available online. In this quick guide, we’ll show you how you can get the best prices for your online ink purchases.

The first thing you must decide is whether you want to buy brand new inkjet cartridges, or remanufactured cartridges. The advantage of a brand new cartridge is that it is new and will almost always work perfectly. However, brand new cartridges are also the most expensive. A remanufactured cartridge, on the other hand, is slightly cheaper, but there is a bigger risk. Since these cartridges were refilled by a vendor, there is a higher chance that they won’t work as well as a new cartridge. Also, some remanufactured cartridges will make your printer display errors or warnings that your ink levels are low. But the good news is that remanufactured cartridges from trusted vendors usually do not pose a problem.

There is also a third option if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, which is to purchase an ink refill kit and refill empty ink cartridges on your own. Ink refill kits sell from around $30, and will allow you to refill cartridges multiple times. I personally do not like this option myself since it is too much of a hassle. But once you get the hang of it, you can save a lot of money by refilling your own cartridges. There is a learning curve to learn how to do this, however, and you may or may not want to go this route, depending on how much time you have.

When purchasing ink online, make sure you utilize online coupon codes in order to secure extra discounts. You can find such coupons all over the web. I personally like using an inkfarm coupon myself. Don't just check one site, however. I like to check at least two or three sites to make sure I am using the best, most up-to-date coupon.
