Businessmen behind printer brands are thinking of more ways to make money by making people buy their expensive ink.

Printer manufacturers make more money selling ink cartridges than selling printers. This is why printers are cheaper. By buying a printer, people would need to buy ink cartridges constantly, which are often more expensive. 


But if people avoid buying their expensive brand inks for cheaper compatible ones, they knew they had to adapt. 

So two known brands decided to solve this problem in their own ways. The question now is, which one is more beneficial to the consumer? 

Epson Ecotank Printer


This printer is cartridge-free and comes with 2 years worth of ink. They were designed to have less waste by having refillable tanks instead of buying replaceable ink cartridges. 

However, it cannot be denied that this is also a way to make customers buy a large bulk of ink initially. Like mentioned before, printer manufacturers make more money selling ink than printers. 

The cost of an Epson ET 2750 is $299.99. An Epson printer with almost the same features minus ET’s ink supply, Epson WorkForce WF-2750, is $169.00 in Amazon. Its price is 56% lower than Epson ET 2750. 

With EcoTank Printer, one is literally paying 55.86% more for ink. 


However, the extra expense comes with its own benefits. The amount of ET ink as stated by Epson is comparably cheaper than 30 Epson 220 cartridge ink sets (compatible with Epson WF-2750) which is worth $1,141.5. 

However, once two years have passed, there are pressing questions that need to be answered. 

Inkjet printers last about three years. Is ET a good investment, with its high price of two years ink plus printer, if it would only last for three years?

How long do how much does one have to spend on Epson ink?

How does Epson ET ink cost compare with others in the long run?

HP Instant Ink

HP encourages people to buy their ink through monthly subscription. Only specific set of HP printers can have these subscription plans. 

Your printer is connected to your Wi-Fi and HP monitors its ink levels. Once its ink levels are low, they would deliver ink cartridges for you to replace with. Delivery can take up to 10 days. 


This HP Ink Program charges by how much pages are printed. This means that a colored printed page would cost the same as a black-and-white printed page.

As an example, let’s look at one if its subscription plan which is the “Moderate Printing Plan” which has an extent of 100 pages for $4.99 a month. If the subscriber has used up all 100 pages, they would be charged a dollar for every 15 pages. This may seem small but it may add up in the long term. Especially if they prefer not to upgrade their subscription to 300 pages for $9.99 a month. 

If the subscriber didn’t print anything for a month, the Moderate Printing plan has a rollover of 200 unused pages. This means, the hp ink program will allow you to use 2 months worth of unused printing only. 

Before we compare the math between the two, there are also some concerns about Instant Ink that some people may not agree with.

With Instant Ink subscription plan, you're permitting HP to monitor your printer activity. This includes page count, type of documents that are printed, the device you use to print a particular document, ink levels and whether the cartridge you use is new or used. Under this terms of service, HP is allowed to share your name, address, email address, printer model and serial number with the retailer whom you purchased the subscription from. 

Some people may feel this is an invasion of privacy while some would tolerate it. 

Your printer will also need to be online at all times for its activity to be properly monitored by HP. According to their terms of service of this date, if your printer isn’t online, your Instant Ink-activated Cartridges will be “disabled and you will not be able to use them to print; however, you will continue to be charged for the Instant Ink Service.”

Furthermore according to their TOS, if you don't pay in time, HP will temporarily cancel your plan and your Instant Ink-activated Cartridges. This can cause inconveniences for your business. 

Doing the Math: Epson Ecotank Printer vs HP Instant Ink

To effectively compare ET and Instant Ink, they’ll need to be computed under the same factors. 

For Low Volume Users

 

The Calculations

The average monthly print of a low volume printer is 100 pages.

The average monthly print volume of Epson ET 2550 is 150 pages a month. This EcoTank Printer costs $279.99 with its 2-year supply of ink for 150 pages monthly. In two years, an ET user with a low volume print load will have an extra 600 pages for printing. 

A printer similar to Epson ET 2550 is HP DeskJet 3755 (almost same printer speed and features), one of the HP Instant Ink Printers. It costs $59.99. Instant Ink’s “Moderate Printing Plan” allows 100 pages a month of printing for $4.99. In total, an HP user with a low print volume would have to a 2-year expense of $119.76 for the monthly subscription plus printer cost of $59.99, totalling to $179.75.

The Conclusion

  • ET costs 21.8% higher than Instant Ink. But since a Low Volume ET printer prints 150 pages on a monthly average, a low volume user with a 100 pages print load will have free 50 pages for printing every month. 
  • ET is good for low volume users who would have more than an average of 100 pages printed monthly. 
  • Instant Ink is for people whose print load is less than 100 pages monthly.

For Medium Volume Users

The Calculations

The average monthly print volume of Epson ET 4750 is 300 pages a month. This EcoTank printer costs $499.99 with its 2-year supply of ink. 

HP ENVY Photo 7855 All-in-One Printer, one of the HP Instant Ink Printers,  has almost the same printer speed and features as that of Epson ET 4750. It costs $229.99. Instant Ink's "Frequent Printing Plan" allows 300 pages a month of printing for $9.99. An Instant Ink subscriber with a “Frequent Printing Plan” would’ve spent $239.76 for the 2-year subscription plus printer cost, totalling $469.75.

The Conclusion

  • In a medium volume printing, Instant Ink is 6.24% lower than ET. 

For High Volume Users

The Calculations

A high volume user would have a print load of 700 pages a month. 

Epson Workforce ET-16500 has an average print load of 800 pages a month. It costs $999.99, including its 2-year load of ink. For the high volume user with a 700-page monthly print load average, they’ll have 1,200 extra pages for printing.

One of the HP Instant Ink printers with similar features as ET-16500 is the HP OfficeJet Pro 6230 which costs $129.99. Instant Ink has a "Business Printing Plan" that allows 700 pages printed per month for $19.99. In two years, the Instant Ink subscriber would’ve spent $129.99 for a printer and $479.76 for the plan, totalling $609.75.

The Conclusion

  • For high volume, Instant Ink is 48.48% cheaper than ET. 
  • However, ET comes with free ink for 1,200 pages more compared to Instant Ink’s $1 charge for ever extra 20 pages. 
  • ET is for high volume users whose print load exceeds 700 pages. 
  • While Instant Ink is for high volume users whose print load remains below 700 pages.

Compatible Ink: What If You Can Save Even More?

Compatible cartridges are often 18-115% cheaper than brand cartridges. They also contain a higher volume of ink.

For example, Compatible HP 65 ink have the same price as Compatible HP65XL. While HP 65XL ink would have a higher price than HP 65. Therefore the user can buy high yield cartridges in the same price as normal yield cartridges. 

Compatible Ink vs Epson ET and HP Instant Ink

Each bottle of Epson T522 Ink (65 ml) costs $13.99. Each ET T522 compatible ink bottle (70 ml) costs $6.99. The compatible ink bottle is 67% cheaper than the brand ink.
Let us say, that if you’re not comfortable with Instant Ink’s Terms of Services, you decided to buy HP ink instead. Which would be cheaper, HP Ink or Compatible HP Ink?5

An HP 65XL Black Ink Cartridge with a 300 page yield costs $30.99. A compatible HP 65XL black ink cartridge with a 300 page yield costs $18.49. The compatible ink is 50.53% cheaper than the brand ink. 

How Can I Save Money the Most?

If you're still trying to decide whether to buy an Epson Ecotank Printer or an HP Printer, you save more money with HP Instant Ink. However, you get more free extra pages with Epson Ecotank. 

If you really want to save money the most, always buy compatible ink. As seen above, you can be saving up to 67%. 

But if you really want to save money through compatible ink cartridges, we would recommend buying a Brother printer brand. 

Their LC3035BK ink (for their MFC-J805DW INKvestment Tank) is $55.99.A compatible Brother LC3035 Black ink with the same page yield is only $24.95. By buying a Brother Printer, you'll be saving 76.7% in ink by buying compatible ink cartridges. 


Businessmen behind printer brands are thinking of more ways to make money by making people buy their expensive ink.

Printer manufacturers make more money selling ink cartridges than selling printers. This is why printers are cheaper. By buying a printer, people would need to buy ink cartridges constantly, which are often more expensive.

Stickers are a form of self-expression. With stickers you can spruce up cheap but plain items in your own style. 

You can have fun with an art software to make your own custom stickers or download free printables online. After that, all you need is your printer and some printable sticker papers.

You can then print them on glossy sticker paper to make them shiny. Or matte sticker paper for a natural look. If you want your stickers to look like they were printed on the surface, clear sticker printer paper is for you.

If you’re a teacher or a parent, free stickers are good motivators for kids in finishing their homework, chores and school activities.

A smiley face can be given for completing a chore every day without being told to (although giving them sticky notes so that they could remember would be very helpful). No doubt, there is something satisfying in seeing a line of smileys throughout five days a week in a calendar. 

Paper stickers would do for this occasion if they’re just going to be applied on skin or paper. They’re cheap but may tear and leave sticker bits if applied on walls and doors. 

With a quick sticker printing at home, you can teach kids that work could be rewarding.

It’s often the small, simple details that go past us. Yet they can unexpectedly affect your business system for the better.

Stickers can do a lot of things. They’re as budget-friendly as they are versatile since you can print multiples in one sticker printer paper. You can put them everywhere to influence an environment, organize your system and make a statement. 

Here are ways on how stickers can bolster your biz.

1. Promo Custom Stickers

Who can resist a sticker giveaway when stickers call on childhood memories of fun collectibles and "gold stars"?

Promo Custom Stickers function as mobile marketing to increase your company’s brand awareness. 

Here are a few tips on printing your Promo Stickers:
  • Sticker giveaways are relatively small, so make sure to grab attention with vivid colors of your theme. 
  • Be conscious of color meaning and what message you want people to associate you with. Many people think of money and eco-friendliness when they see green. Blue is associated with trust and security. You get the idea. 
  • If you're promoting a product, your custom stickers’ image will show people what it's all about at a glance. If you're selling donuts, let it be a design about donuts. It's okay to get basic while adding a  twist of your own. 
  • Print your design on a glossy sticker printer paper if you want it to have a sophisticated look. 
  • If you’re an artist, promotional custom stickers are one way of sharing your art style to others. People won’t be able to resist to use it as decoration. 
  • Make sure to add in your sticker your social media channel in order to contact you.


2. Product and Package Label Vinyl Stickers


Packaging adds to a product’s aesthetic and a customer’s desire to buy them. Package label design is therefore important to upgrading the look of your product. 


In sticker printing Product and Package Labels, always remember:

  • Glossy photo sticker paper compliments reflective surfaces such as glass.
  • Glossy photo sticker paper adds elegance to a non-reflective surface.
  • Matte photo sticker paper gives off a “natural” look.
  • If the labels needs to be written upon, matte photo sticker paper is easier to write on. Writing on glossy labels will make the ink smear.

                  In sticker printing Product and Package Labels, always remember:

                  • Glossy photo sticker paper compliments reflective surfaces such as glass.
                  • Glossy photo sticker paper adds elegance to a non-reflective surface.
                  • Matte photo sticker paper gives off a “natural” look.
                  • If the labels needs to be written upon, matte photo sticker paper is easier to write on. Writing on glossy labels will make the ink smear.
