Printer Ink Buying Guide

There are many different printers that are available for taking care of all your printing, copying, scanning, and faxing needs. Did you realize that there are also many types of ink for those printers? You may think that ink is ink, but with all the different printing needs being unique to the situation, there are different types of ink and ink cartridges that may be called for in order to provide the best results for different printing needs, and to make affording the ink possible for almost any budget.

Types of Ink Cartridges

There are three types of ink cartridges that you might want to consider. The first type is the manufacturer ink cartridge, which is made be the same manufacturer of your printer to specifically fit and work well with your printer. OEM (original equipment manufacturer) ink cartridges may be more expensive than some of the others, but they will also give you a solid level of quality when printing and making copies. Few know the printer better than the manufacturer, so this type may be worth the extra money you will end up spending on it.

Then there are the compatible ink cartridges which are not made by the company that made your printer, but are generic. They are made by someone other than the main manufacturer, but may work as well as a manufacturer made one would. It may not have the name of the company that made your printer on it, but is still made with the same specifications that an OEM one would be. Since it doesn't carry the name brand on it, the price may be less than it would be with the brand name.

The other main option of printer ink cartridges is the remanufactured cartridge. These are previously used ink cartridges that have been emptied, repaired if necessary, and then refilled with the proper ink. This process will end up supplying a product that will work just as well as a new OEM ink cartridge would. The cartridges are tested and guaranteed to work well.
