Save at least 70% on HP564XL ink! Our ink is helping to keep the planet green! We pledged to never forget! Why should you shop remanufactured ink and toner? Learn how you can get a free recycleable tote bag!

Oct 30, 2013



We have a lot of awesome deals going on at CompandSave and at times it seems tempting and practical to stock up on ink cartridges in advance. But, you question if it is a good idea to store unused cartridges for a long period of time. Good news, we give you the green light to go ahead and buy cartridges in advance!

However, we want you to know how to store and care for your extra cartridges to ensure that when you go to use them they work and do not cause damage to your printer.

If possible do not remove cartridges from their original packaging. This packaging is designed to protect your cartridges and is the best possible way to store them. If you need to remove them from the packaging for any reason or if the seal on the package is broken, find something else to store them in. Do not leave cartridges sit around unprotected.

Do not store ink cartridges in a place that is extremely warm and keep them out of direct sunlight. Warm temperatures may increase the pressure inside the ink cartridge which causes the ink to expand and eventually leak. As a precaution never store inks of different colors together– if one leaks, you can lose both cartridges. Ideally, you want to store ink in an environment that is between 40-80 degrees Fahrenheit.  If you live in an environment that causes room temperatures to be really high you can store your cartridges in the refrigerator inside a sealed Ziploc bag. Another way to prevent leaks is to store cartridges with the print head facing upwards.

If you follow the instructions above buying cartridges in advance should not be an issue. If you have any questions about cartridges you purchase through CompandSave please call our customer service center. Our agents are happy to advise you on how to care for your cartridges and answer any questions you may have.

First lesson of Ink-onomics, before buying a name-brand printer at a surprisingly low price, think about the price of the ink cartridges. Most companies sell their printers at a price that’s very affordable in order to attract more customers. A printer has little to no value with its complement, the even more expensive ink cartridge. Lexmark is one of the many printer manufacturers profiting from the sale of expensive cartridges rather than the actual printers. With a long line of printers like the Lexmark Pro715, the Lexmark Pro915, and the Lexmark S515 costing $70-$200, the high expense of actually using these printers is almost unavoidable since these printers require costly cartridges.

Lexmark 150XL compatible ink cartridges

Depending on your job function or purpose for having a printer, you may require new cartridges every 2-3 months. Another element to consider is that each printer is compatible with a specified type of ink cartridge. The Lexmark Pro915 and its respected relatives the Lexmark S310, S315 and S415 are only functional when there used with the Lexmark 150XL High Yield or the regular Lexmark 150 ink cartridges. The cost of a combo pack of 4 (1 black, 1 cyan, 1, magenta, 1 yellow) high yield ink cartridges is $118.98 at retail price (Staples). If you could save over $90 on your purchase without voiding your printers’ warranty, why wouldn't you? Unless you’re printing money to regain what you spent on ink (which is illegal), buying re-manufactured cartridges is a great way to save.

To serve the smart consumer, CompAndSave carry a variety of New Compatible Inkjet Cartridge models at a discount price while providing genuine quality and satisfaction. Those same Lexmark product models, particular the black (14N1614), cyan (14N1615), magenta (14N1616), and yellow (14N1618) ink cartridges, are professionally re-engineered in a manufacturing facility that uses state of the art processes to ensure that they will print as well as their genuine Lexmark counterparts. Furthermore, with every purchase of over $50 you receive free-shipping in addition to a 1 year money back guarantee.  A 4-combo pack of Lexmark 150XL ink cartridges that would cost you $118.98 at retail is only $25.96 at CompAndSave. Buying from CompAndSave is wise for someone not willing to sacrifice their print load and save on an already expensive product. Smart savings for the smart consumers.

It isn’t a secret that finding a job now a days is hard. To secure a new position let alone an interview, you need to do everything in your power to stand out and present yourself as a professional. Last week we discussed why printing out your resume was still applicable in the digital age. Bringing printed out copies of your resume to an interview will show your interviewer that you are professional and organized. But what type of paper are they looking for your resume to be presented on? When choosing supplies to print out your resume consider the following:

Paper Color- Traditionally employers look for your resume to be printed on white or off white paper. If you want to go for an edge to draw attention to your resume we suggest light gray but if your main goal is to be professional stick to white. Like most rules there is an exception. Industries that are centered around being creative would possibly gravitate toward a resume printed out on paper of a different color. When applying for these types of positions research the company and make a decision on paper color based on your findings. When in doubt always choose white.

Paper Weight- Printer paper is categorized by weight. The weight of paper is determined by the weight of a ream of paper before it is cut. Normally copy machines and printers are loaded with 20 lb paper. This paper moves easily through the printer due to its light and flexible nature. It is suggested that for printing resumes you choose paper that is slightly sturdier. Paper that weighs 24 lbs is said to be the perfect weight for resumes. It is not as flimsy but not as heavy as card stock.

Paper Texture- If you want to pull out all the stops and make your resume super fancy then choose a paper with texture. Traditional printer paper has a smooth texture to it and in most cases is more than fine for your resume. However, if you want to really wow a future employer and pull ahead in a tight race for a position then choose paper that has a linen texture. Paper of this texture is used by companies for letterhead, business cards and other professional documents. Choosing this type of texture is an indicator to a future employer that you have an understanding of how to communicate professionally.

Ink Color- Do not try to get all fancy with the color of your font. Black is the easiest color to read, especially on white paper. Employers do not want to have to squint at your resume to read it. Also make sure before you print that you change the color of any hyperlinks on your resume from blue to black. An employer can not click on a hyperlink on a printed paper and do not need to be distracted by difference of color.

Follow these tips for printing out your resume and you will be one step closer to employment.

Do you have any questions for us about how to print our your resume? Any advice you would like to share with our readers? We would love to hear from you in the comments below!

It’s that spooky time of year again and this time around you can really enter into the spirit of things by creating some of your own Halloween gear. Here’s a simple, fun DIY (do-it-yourself) project for the family where you can create your very own, exclusive face masks. You can put those compatible ink cartridges to good use by printing out these masks for kids to put on when they go trick or treating or you can simply put them on yourself when you hand out the candies. They can be a part of an entire costume or can be worn by themselves.

These masks can be very useful if you plan to have a Halloween themed party – print and create one for every guest so everyone can really enter into the spirit of Halloween. Make sure you have enough masks for everyone and don’t forget to make a few extra, just in case.

Here’s what you need to create your own Halloween masks:
  • Good quality paper or card stock for printing
  • Scissors (safety scissors if you plan to let kids to some of the cutting)
  • Craft knife (best handled by an adult)
  • Ribbon, string or elastic for securing the mask
  • Colors (if you plan to use the colorable mask provided)

Halloween Masks for Kids
Printable Halloween Mask

How to make your own Halloween masks:
  • Ensure that your printer cartridge or toner cartridge is properly installed and that it isn’t exhausted and that the cartridge will get you the desired number of printouts.
  • Now click on the “DOWNLAD” link below the mask of your choice. This will open another tab which is the PDF version of the mask.
  • Now click “PRINT” in your browser’s drop down menu.
  • Once you have the printout of the mask, cut neatly along the edge of the mask or the dotted line provided.
  • Use a craft knife to cut out the eyes of the mask.
  • You can color the masks with crayons, color pencils, and so on… before cutting them.
  • Now punch two holes on the sides of the mask (where indicated by the black circles).
  • Secure the mask using ribbons, string, elastic or a rubber band.

With everything being processed electronically these days applying for jobs requires a simple  email, an attached resume and the click of the send button. Since you are sending your resume to a potential employer through the inner workings of the Internet there is no longer a reason to actually print out your resume, right?

Wrong.

Below we have compiled three reasons on why you still need to print out your resume and why just submitting a digital copy isn’t enough.


  1. We all know it is important to edit your resume. Of course we have spell check, which can get your resume close to flawless, but it doesn’t always catch everything. Printing out a rough draft of your resume is a great practice for catching errors on your resume. Sometimes after starring at a screen for a long period of time it is hard to notice an obvious error. By printing out your resume you are allowing yourself to look at it from another angle. 

  2. Even though you are submitting your resume electronically chances are high that whoever is handling the hiring process will print out your resume. They will want to have a copy in front of them to reference during your interview. They may also be looking into your computer skill set. If the resume you submitted prints out a jumbled up mess then they will probably question your ability to complete basic computer task. After you print out your resume and you are happy with how it looks, make sure you save it as a PDF and submit that copy to the hiring manager. A PDF is a type of file that looks the same on all operating systems and will ensure that your resume doesn’t look funky in another program or computer. 

  3. Speaking of the interview, it is always a great idea to bring multiple printed copies of your resume to the interview. Having a copy of your own resume in front of you helps you to look prepared. An extra copy comes into play if someone joins the interview who wasn’t planning to. Often times the hiring manager will pull in another employee for a second opinion. They might not have seen your resume and your ability to provide them with a copy of your resume on the spot speaks volumes about your organizational skills.


Go ahead and embrace technology! Use it to create amazing resumes, just remember to still print. Not sure what type of paper or ink to use when printing? Don’t worry we have you covered there as well. Next week we will be writing about materials that will make your resume look professional and eye catching.


Have a resume design you are proud of? Submit it to us and we might feature it in an upcoming post!
