Well Thought Out Infrastructure Is the Sign of a Good Company

The merging of the real world and cyberspace has never been in greater harmony than it is now; in quite a few cities, you can order an ink or laser toner cartridge, like the Compatible Okidata C5500/C5650/C5800 Series toner cartridge, and have the cartridge at your place of business in a few days - and in many areas, the next day.

Of course, to deliver on this platform takes expertise and an efficient, well thought out plan that needs to be spread between the cyber and real world platforms. It is not easy to set up the infrastructure in both worlds so that they seamlessly overlap into one easy experience for the online customer.


How Not To Be Fooled By a Fancy Website with a Worn, Poorly Run Warehouse

As an individual, the customer just wants a seamless transaction; they don't think about the giant inventory a good seller has to keep in this field; such hard to find items like the Canon FaxPhone B-540 Ink Cartridges. Seamlessly integrating warehousing and shipping systems can also be a delicate procedure, but you can tell the well thought out, dedicated online supplier by gauging just a few things. For instance, especially for inkjet cartridges and other printer and toner cartridges one of the things to look for is that they only offer this type of supply - it is usually a bad thing when cheap cartridges are available from a retailer who carries a panoply of other products.

Shipping and warranty terms should be spelled out in easy to understand language, and the good website almost always offer same day shipping if an order is placed early enough. That is one of the strengths of this cross platform integration when done right - it means that someone is paying attention at the company, so seeing these things lets you know that as much thought went into the back end of the company as has gone into the website. One is useless without the other.

Did They Do The Work That Makes Their Items As Good As OEM?

If you type in 'printer ink cartridges' or 'laser toner cartridges' into your search engine you will find hundreds of outlets selling items like these - then it becomes a task of narrowing down exactly which of these resellers is doing a good job in two key aspects.

One, and most importantly, is how dedicated are they to making sure the compatible ink and ink cartridges they sell stack up against the OEM cartridges that you would buy directly from the printer's manufacturer itself? With modern manufacturing techniques it is possible to get a cartridge that meets or exceeds the OEM specifications in all aspects, but not all companies goals are the same. Some simply want to make quick profits and don't really care how long they stay in business.


Researching the Field

A little bit of research can give you the tools you need to find reputable ink cartridge sellers that are interested in quality products and are in the business for the long haul. One of the big things to look for is the amount of time the company has been in business - sellers which are not concerned with quality simply don't last long in this field, so if the company you are looking at is less than five years old that may indicate problems.

Another giveaway is what types of products they carry - dedicated sellers of ink and toner printer cartridges will usually concentrate only on those areas - they will not have lots of other products at their website, so if you see a company that sells hundreds of items, among them ink and toner cartridges like the Epson #87 T087720, it is a sign that they have not invested enough in the demanding field of printer ink cartridges.


What to Look For

They should also state clearly that their cartridges are manufactured to the exacting demands of the OEM products; mainstream manufacturing facilities make these cartridges every bit as good as the OEM cartridges as long as the quality control and proper specifications are in place, and they should also go into detail about their methods of remanufacturing previously used cartridges, like the - this process should be every bit as exacting and yield a laser cartridge which works every bit as good as the OEM model.

If you check the above, talk to the customer service to see how knowledgeable they are and make sure that the warranty is an easy to understand, good warranty you can save a lot of money over buying the OEM cartridges.

How Easy It Is

The supplier you choose to get your ink cartridges from can make a big difference in price, quality, available models of ink cartridges and laser toner cartridges, and whether or not their warranty is any good. These things will make all the difference in which supplier you choose. Reputable dealers will have a long track record to judge them by, and there will be no confusion about their warranty language. Also, keep an eye on shipping costs as some resellers pad their profit by overcharging for shipping.

These days, it is easy to get a website - it is a bit harder to turn that site into a place that attracts shopping customers. For the site to be truly successful, it must offer three or four simple things. Ease of navigation and the ability to find the right product through multiple channels is extremely good, and a simple, easy to understand warranty - and with ink cartridges or laser toner cartridges, the longer the warranty the better - some people just do not print very much material, and a one month warranty is very short in terms of printer and laser toner cartridges.


What to Look For In a Good Supplier

A good sign that you're dealing with a professional company is how fast they ship and how good their customer service is - when you call them are they helpful at finding exactly the right product that you need? Do they answer all your questions about the product?

Also, make sure to read the fine print on how their products are manufactured. There are two types of cartridges that will meet your price requirements; remanufactured and compatible cartridges. A reputable supplier will take great care with each product type, and in the case of remanufactured will completely disassembled, inspect, clean and rebuild the old cartridge back to factory OEM standards, and refill it with high quality ink or toner which meets or exceeds the OEM standards; compatible cartridges like the Konica-Minolta 1710580-004 Laser Toner Cartridge will get just as much attention to detail, but they are made from scratch instead of being remade. They will, however, be made to the same exacting standards as the OEM equipment.

Follow the tips and hints above to make sure you are dealing with a reputable company, and it will be possible to save a large amount of money on your ink and toner needs.

Paper Basics

In the printing world, there are constant improvements on both ends of the printing spectrum - the one which most people think about is ink and toner cartridges and the ink that goes in them; obviously, these are very important, but just as important is the development of new paper; the new paper then inspires the reworking or jet and printhead technology and ink formulation.

Kodak just released several new lines of paper at the Photokina Trade Show that all fall under the Professional Inkjet Media category which specializes in photo paper. The new Inkjet Photo Glossy and Lustre are next gen photo papers and offer the latest digital paper technology that gets the best results out of inkjet machines from the major manufacturers.

The new papers, which also include Fine Art Textured and Smooth, offer increased color gamut's and a greater ability to reproduce richer and deeper blacks, and which offer a more dynamic range across the color spectrum as well as more detail in the shadow areas.

Fine Art Papers

The Fine Art papers are of particular interest in people printing art media, with these heavyweight, extreme quality archival grade paper. Fine Art Smooth is a 100% cotton paper and great for portraiture, while the Fibre Satin and Fibre Glossy are an inkjet paper reminiscent of the traditional fiber based photo papers - these papers offer market-leading color gamut and make great looking prints.


New Papers Work Great with Compatible and Remanufactured Cartridges

The best thing about these papers, even though paper manufacturers are limited, is that good, quality remanufactured and compatible ink cartidges work just was well with them as the OEM ink and laser toner cartridges; in this world we save money where we can, and if you choose carefully you can get products in the remanufactured and compatible markets that are built as good as or better then the OEM cartridges that came with your printer.

Going Green - More and More Recycling Options for Old Cartridges

A trend beginning to sweep the ink and toner cartridge industry is the growing desire to make sure old, empty cartridges are properly disposed of. It is estimated that one laser cartridge which is re-manufactured saves nearly 2.5 pounds of metal and plastic from being deposited into landfills. These old cartridges can be reused many times over, and not is it good for the environment but it is also good for you bottom line to use re-manufactured, or reworked, cartridges - they can cost as little as a third of the OEM cartridges and if gotten from a reputable manufacturer and supplier offer as good a print as the OEM models.

It gives recycling a new boost - anything that makes doing business or printing pictures of the grandkids cheaper is great, but when it also helps the environment to recycle your old cartridges it adds another level of happiness to what is already a great deal. There is enough that is easily thrown away in today's world, and these empty old cartridges are almost custom made for an easy remake and rebirth into re-manufactured ink and toner cartridges.


How Oil Factors In

Anything made of plastic and metal is gradually getting more and more expensive - it is harder the calculate with cartridges, but think about this - ever tire made uses about 7 gallons of oil, and printer ink and toner cartridges are no different; if it is made of plastic, there is oil involved, and as the price of oil goes up the price of plastic goes up as well. Help get ahead of the curve, and make sure to set your old cartridges aside instead of throwing them away.

Recycling Saves You Money

Many companies offer recycling programs, and now you can not only do the right thing but save money as well by buying quality re-manufactured and compatible cartridges that have been meticulously cleaned, checked and refilled so that it is as good as or better than the OEM cartridge that originally came with your printer.

New Water Based Inks Offer Improved Color and Resolution

One of the newest advances in printing technology is coming from a company called INX; their new Aquatex Ion Label ink systems utilizes a water based flexographic formula for printing on a wide variety of media, from paper to film and thermal labeling uses. With these new water based formulations, they are getting up to 1500 lines per inch, and they offer excellent color strength, resolution and transparency for brilliant output on a wide range of media.


Right now the ink formulations have not become widespread throughout the industry, but there is no question that the technologies used for the ION inks will quickly be absorbed by other ink manufacturers, and the uses of this technology are quickly going to spread beyond the uses it is currently being advertised for. The detail, color, transparency and resolution is simply too high, and will not be ignored - graphics intensive industries will want to make use of the ION inks and all that they can do as quickly as possible, which means that within a short span of time there will be more and more printers which are capable of using this formulation.


Multiple Media and Specialty Formulations

Among the features that other companies and compatible ink and toner manufacturers will find extremely useful is the ability to print across a multiple media platform; as well, there are specific formulations that specifically target different industries, such as the high heat resistance versions, and the ION-F series which can print on a variety of treated, non-porous film structures including different vinyl products, foils and various polyester and cellophane materials.


These Inks Will Soon Be Adapted For Wider Use

Keep your eyes open for this ink to quickly become a fixture in segments of the industry including any firm specializing in graphic arts and nontraditional applications outside the tag industry. Not only does it offer great resolution and color, but it also has superior press stability and can be run at a wide range of press and print speeds.

Advantages of Modern Inks

Engineers and technicians are working everyday to keep making ink cartridges better and better; the goal is simple - to continue to refine the mechanical workings of the cartridge, the way it is put together and the tolerances of the parts. The other part is the ink. Epson leads the pack in this regard with smartvalve technology, which allows the printhead to release much more uniform streams of the ink; this increases efficiency and sharpness, and they have a wide array of ink to choose from, from the Ultrachrome K3 which produces exhibition quality work, or the DURABrite Ultra Ink, which is great for regular and photo paper for everyday uses.

What to look for to save money without sacrificing quality

No matter how fast the technology moves, though, there are always ways to find a better deal than buying the manufacturers ink directly from the manufacturer - it can be extremely expensive, but there are alternatives which can yield just as results which are just as good as the OEM ink cartridges. The new ink and valve technologies are approached by a wide array of scientists from many different fields of endeavor, and it pays off for the companies that are heavily into this research and development.

It also offers a heavy payoff for the re-manufactured and compatible ink and toner cartridge industry - the good companies waste no time in adopting the best technologies that the first generation companies are developing, and they offer these excellent new products at greatly reduced prices, which benefits the individual and business consumer.

What it comes down to in both cases is a strong quality control ethic; the tolerances, both physical and in the quality of the chips and the programming - things are so far advanced now that the cartridges from ten years ago are truly in the dark ages.

The ink is the same

All of the ink and toner companies are making breakthrough technologies in this industry, and it is apparent when comparing prints from just a few years apart - especially on the upper end, the breakthroughs are astounding, but the technologies filter down quickly - there is very little lag time between the new inks and cartridge technologies between the original equipment manufacturers and high quality compatible cartridge manufacturers. This industry never stands still, but new products are rapidly adapted by competitors of every stripe, from the other major name brands to the higher quality compatible cartridge manufacturers. Their goal is the same as the big name brands - to offer the latest technology, and to keep a customer once they are found. You can only do that through the best inks and cartridges.
