Finding the Cheapest Printing Supplies
Posted by Ink Oasis on 11/28/2011 to Inkjet Printer Ink
When people think of finding the cheapest printing supplies, they usually limit themselves to thinking about toner and inkjet cartridges. On the other hand, if you give it some thought, you will soon realize that the cost of all kinds of printing supplies has doubled in price when compared to a few years ago. Therefore, if want to save money on your home office without going paperless, you will need to do a bit of research to find the cheapest printing supplies for all of your needs.

Paper Based Printing Supplies

No matter how you look at it, the price of paper is well on the verge of matching the price of printer ink.  Without a question, paying $4.00 5.00 for a single package of paper with 500 sheets in it seems like highway robbery compared to just $2.50 a few years ago. On the other hand, you are also likely to find that buying in bulk will not generate enough of a discount. In order to find the cheapest paper printing supplies, you will be best served by looking online for closeout bargains. 

Ink, Toner and Refill Printing Supplies

When you are searching for cheap printer ink and other printing supplies for a printer, a great deal will depend on the brand of printer as well as the type of cartridge you are dealing with. For example, cartridges for Brother printers may be cheaper to refill than ones for Canon or HP.  Invariably, you will find that analyzing the cost of refilling inkjet cartridges should be carried out before you buy a new printer. If you are looking to save money on office expenses, upgrading at this point may serve your needs if you find a machine that makes easier use of cheap printing supplies. 

Specialty Printing Supplies

Did you know that there is a special kind of paper that you can use in inkjet printers to make iron-on transfers? While many people may be aware of printing supplies that allow you to make stickers, there are many other kinds to consider.  This includes:

    High gloss paper for realistic photos
    Transparent plastic for overheads or other light projectors
    Metallic or holographic paper for CD labels or posters
    Cardstock for greeting cards, business cards and book covers

During the process of trying to save money on specialty printing supplies, you will usually have to shop online. For example, if you want paper for iron-on transfers, local stores may charge twice as much as an online store. In addition, when you shop online, you will also be able to learn more about other specialty printing supplies that will have appeal for another project.

When you are shopping for printing supplies, you should always keep in mind that your office runs on much more than a printer. Aside from ink cartridges, you should always be on the lookout for cheaper paper, labels, and specialty papers. If you give it some thought, you are also likely to find a number of other printing supplies that you should be trying to find cheaper solutions for your printing needs.
