I thought I’d take the time this week to touch on a subject that I’ve briefly swept over in the past and as a result I’ve since received many queries about and that is the area of compatible printer cartridges. This is a product which could save many of you money on your printer running costs as there are now a fair few companies around selling these cartridges which claim to be the same quality as those produced by Epson, HP, Canon and the like but at a fraction of the price.
When you originally purchased your printer you may have been surprised by the cheap price that you paid for the machine as printers now start from around £30 including cartridges and it seems unbelievable that the manufacturer can kick out machines at this price and yet still make a decent profit. The truth is that most people simply misunderstand the fact that the manufacturers don’t really make a profit on the machine itself as they’re assuming that when it comes time for you to purchase replacement inks that you’ll tolerate the fact that you’re paying more for these than you actually paid for the printer in the first instance. This becomes particularly true when you look at the fact that a cartridge only really consists of a small amount of ink and a lump of plastic so rationalizing spending £40 on a set becomes quite difficult.
There have been a number of companies who have seen an obvious business advantage of creating cartridges for said printers but not having to worry about subsidizing the initial cost price of the printer. This gives them an unfair advantage on the market which although is ultimately bad news for the printer companies, it is good news for the consumer as they are able to pick replacement cartridges of the same quality but at a fraction of the price.
Although there are a number of places which sell these compatible cartridges, as one of our core areas of business I would like to take this opportunity to promote our store Refresh Cartridges. This is not just as a form of advertising for my company but also because in the past 2 years I have always pointed out many good money saving tips for my readers to follow and this time the service in question just happens to be provided by my own company. Although I cannot claim to come from an unbiased perspective, I do honestly believe that we currently offer the cheapest prices and best guarantees of any of the companies doing similar business in the Bay.
