How to Find Reliable Low-Cost Printer Ink

Are you trying to save money on the total cost of printer ink for your small business?

Are the options available online too overwhelming? How do you know you’ve found a brand you can trust?

Buying printer ink is a necessity for every office, even if you’re not regularly printing meeting materials or marketing materials. Someone in your office eventually will need to print something. The last thing you want is to be out of ink when you need it, and have to spend top dollar to get a replacement cartridge at the last minute.

Buying cheaper printer ink is an option, but it’s only a good idea if you know how to find inexpensive, reliable brands that still get the job done. 

Here’s what you need to keep in mind next time you shop:

  1. Pick a big name – One way to ensure you’re getting good quality ink is to shop with established online retailers or brick-and-mortar stores that can give you a quality guarantee.
  2. Do your homework – If you haven’t purchased ink from a low price before, make sure you ask the right questions. Do they have good customer reviews? Are they open about how they source their ink? Pay attention to any reviews that give the impression that the ink was streaky or lead to clogged heads. Ask the company about inspections on used cartridges.
  3. Aftermarket and Compatibles – Third-party aftermarket compatibles and remanufactured cartridges can lower your print costs by up to 50%.

Remanufactured cartridges are made of refilled, recycled parts. Compatible cartridges are new but built from scratch to the same standards as new cartridges at a lower cost.

Do you wish you could simply order a toner cartridge and have it delivered that same day instead of waiting up to a week to experience crisp prints again? 

Michigan Computer Supplies offers FREE same or next day delivery on most OEM and compatible toner cartridges.  We stock a wide variety of toner cartridges that can be hard to find locally.  Our customers are pleased with our competitive pricing too!

I have worked with Michigan Computer Supplies for about two and a half years. They supply us with 5-10 toner cartridges each month for about 17 printers, of which some are large volume printers. We use both their refurbished and original manufactured toner depending on the device. I believe the refurbished cartridges work just as good as the originals. We also order Zebra printers and labels, Ethernet cables, bar code scanning devices and more. You name it. They have it. Occasionally we have also purchased printer devices and have had items repaired by them as well. I typically call once a week because we go through so much toner. When I call to let them know that we are getting low on supplies they are very efficient with their response time. Kyle delivers new toner by the next day and removes the old cartridges and recycles them. In addition, Jessica often mentions other cost saving measures such as quantity price breaks or recommends a compatible refurbished cartridge to save money. They try to give their customers the most bang for their buck! They are a great group of people to work with. They are very customer oriented and go above and beyond expectations. We recently had a specialized fax machine stop working that would cost $2,000 to replace. I spoke with Chris and he did some research and within 30 minutes called back with a suggestion of another device that would fit our needs for only $ 400.00! They really care about their customers.
