Why I don’t recommend ink refill kits

Previously, I wrote a post about how to minimize printing costs when working with online printing companies. Today, I’d like to talk about how some people try to minimize costs when doing printing on their own, by using ink refill kits.

If you are frustrated about how expensive ink cartridges are, you may have thought of refilling ink by yourself using something called an ink refill kits. You can buy these kits at office supply stores or over the Internet. These kits contain ink and other tools that can be used to refill spent ink cartridges. Once the cartridge is refilled, you can put it back into the printer to be used again. In theory, the concept sounds great. In practice, I have discovered that it is anything but that.

Typically, some sort of problem is likely to arise, such as inaccurate colors or the cartridge not working at all. A good deal of troubleshooting is necessary before you can get to a point where the ink cartridge is actually usable.

What then, is the solution? I have found that it’s much better to not attempt ink refills on your own, and leave that sort of thing to the experts. Instead of refilling ink, you can purchase something called remanufactured cartridges, which are ink cartridges that have been refilled by professionals. In most cases, you won’t be able to find such cartridges being sold at the neighborhood office supply store. Instead, you will need to go online to stores such as 4inkjets or Inkfarm to find these sort of cartridges.

You can expect to pay a few dollars less per cartridge when you purchase remanufactured cartridges. This may not seem like a lot, but if you make a habit of this, the savings can be quite large over time. When buying ink online, it is also a good idea to look for online coupons to bring down the price even further.
