Three smart ways to save money on printer ink

Updated on September 16, 2014

Welcome to my lens all about saving money on printer ink.

We have all been there. Printing out documents and pictures can be expensive when you have to replace ink cartridges.

After being disappointed with the high price of cartridges I began my own search for cheaper solutions and share them with anyone else who wanted to save themselves some money.

How to save money on printer inks.

There are a few ways to save money on printer inks.

The first is to simply have your cartridges refilled or exchanged by a company that does this.

Another choice is to purchase non genuine cartridges.

And the third option is to refill cartridges yourself.

Non genuine cartridges will halve your printer ink costs.

Buying non genuine ink cartridges can typically save you half or more on costs. The ink quality can be as high standard as genuine cartridges.

Although not as cheap as refilling cartridges yourself they do have the advantage of being quick and easy to replace without the mess.

Non genuine inks to save you dollars.

Non genuine inks are as good as the original at significantly less than the original.

Refilling printer ink cartridges.

Reduce your ink costs down to a third.

Refilling ink cartridges requires a little knowledge and a steady hand but the savings are worth it.

The basic process involves injecting ink into the cartridge and resetting the ink counter chip that tells your printer how many prints are possible from your cartridge. You can purchase a refill kit which contains syringes, inks and plugs and a chip re-setter which will do the job. Kits are usually supplied with instructions which show you exactly what to do.

You can also purchase refill friendly cartridges which are designed specifically for refilling with clear bodies so you can see what you are doing as well as easy access plugs which make the job a breeze.

If you plan on doing a lot of printing this would be your best option.
