Genuine Consumables Will Save You Money
Printing is one of the major costs of running a small business. These costs quickly add up, from servicing to purchasing genuine consumables like paper and ink cartridges. A market has opened up for non-genuine, third party cartridges that on average are 30% cheaper. Although the upfront cost is lower, investing in Genuine Printer Consumables or OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) cartridges will save you money in the long run.
A non-genuine toner is one built by a third party supplier. The third-party will claim these are designed or compatible with certain printer brands and models. These are commonly made by refilling old recycled cartridges with lower quality ink.
Non Genuine cartridges are using inks that are not designed for your machine. The ink particles have been observed to be different from the ink purchased from the manufacturer. These larger particles can cause wear on your engine resulting in it being 2x more likely to break down.
Low Ink Quality
The low ink quality doesn’t just harm the internals of the printer, there is also a noticeable difference in the quality of the print. Non-Genuine consumables are notorious for printing washed out colours, as well as smudging, bleeding and banding.
It’s More Than Ink
It is important to note that not only is the ink quality questionable. Genuine cartridges are tested by the manufacturer. This testing ensures that every ink cartridge is tested before you use it in your printer.
But aren’t they compatible?
No, these non-genuine ink and toner manufacturers do not have access to the technical specifications of these branded printers. They also don’t have access to the technology behind these machines, they can not guarantee they will work or last.
They Don’t Last
Genuine printer consumables can guarantee the quantity and quality of their cartridges and the print. Non-genuine consumables do not, they tend to run out 3x faster than your genuine products.
