How to Buy Cheap Inkjet Cartridges for Your Home Office
Posted by on 8/20/2011 to Inkjet Printer Ink
If you have to print several dozen pages a day as part of running a home office, buying brand new inkjet cartridges can be quite costly.  This problem will be even worse if you need to make color prints of images for customers, or for internal use. Fortunately, there are at least three methods you can use to reduce the cost of printer ink cartridges without sacrificing print quality.

Buying Inkjet Cartridges in Bulk

When you go to your local stores, the prices they charge are usually the same no matter whether you buy one cartridge or dozens. In addition, even if you happen to live near a dedicated stationary store, you may not get the kinds of discounts that will justify buying in bulk. That said, if you shop online, you are sure to find stores where you can obtain a reasonable discount on the number of cartridges that you have in mind. Some resources to check on include:

    Discount and closeout sites
    Wholesale outlets dedicated to business owners
    Auction sites where large lots are sold based on the highest bid amount
    Forums where business owners can discuss making bulk purchases and then divvy up among themselves later on

Getting the Best Deal on Refurbished Inkjet Cartridges

Depending on your needs, you may find that you only need one or two cartridges per year. Rather than spend money on cartridges that will dry out from being unused, you might as well look for other ways to save money on single purchases. Overall, refurbished units represent the best way to save money on single inkjet cartridges. As you may be aware, these cartridges originally came from the manufacturer, and are then refilled by a different company.  Once you buy them, all you will need to do is load them into the printer and carry on with your work.

Choosing the Best Source of Generic Inkjet Cartridges

There are always going to be times when you are not overly concerned about print quality. For example, if you need to print an internal memo, or you are studying some text, you won't want to waste ink in a good quality cartridge. Under these circumstances, you may find that generic inkjet cartridges will suit your needs.  Aside from being cheaper than refurbished cartridges, you may also find that some of them print just as well as original ink cartridges from the manufacturer. That said, you will need to find a reputable source in order to obtain the best quality.

There is no question that inkjet printers are going to remain cheaper than laser versions for some time. Unfortunately, if you have to do a lot of printing, the cost of cartridges may wind up being about the same for both machine types. Once you begin working with refurbished and generic inkjet cartridges, you can save a good bit of money and get the cost saving value you deserve from your inkjet printer.
