A New Years Resolution Saving You Money

Can’t think of a New Year’s resolution for 2014? Why not begin by saving money and make the switch to compatible ink cartridges for your printer. If you’re a regular use of your printer can you calculate how much you have spent on ink and toner in 2013? For the busy home user using original brand ink cartridges this cost could run into hundreds of Euros, especially if you have students who need to print out their projects, in what seems like, every other week.

New Year Resolutions 2014

For example, if you were to buy Epson genuine brand T1285 ink cartridges at their best price online you could expect to pay somewhere around €40 plus postage and packing. If you source the compatible version of this ink you should expect to pay about €10! As well as this, you are likely to receive a FREE cartridge AND if you’re really lucky, a FREE gift! These savings are too big for you ignore and as the economy picks up and we all get busier then the need to print more will increase. This can equate to a sizeable saving if you were to purchase 10 sets in a year (not unreasonable for a busy family or a small office), €400 for 10 sets of original brand and €100 for compatible cartridges. If you take the same equation to a busy office using inkjet cartridges where perhaps their early ink bill is around €1000 the saving made switching to compatible are certainly significant.

Ink and toner budgets in the office of any size of business are something that should be addressed regularly in an effort to make savings. Laser toner is most popular for those busy offices that produce large quantities of printed matter. This can be a strain on the finances but the solution again is there if you make the switch to compatible ink and toner. There are some online suppliers that will offer FREE toner ink to those who buy full sets of compatible or remanufactured laser toner ink.

Perhaps you feel your original brand printer ink is too expensive and the savings on the compatible version aren’t really that significant (this can be the case, especially of you are using a HP Printer). You may be deciding to change your printer completely as you have had it for a while and it gives you problems from time to time anyway. A useful tip when looking for a replacement printer is to contact your trusted ink supplier and ask them to recommend what new printer would work best with compatible ink cartridges. They should be able to advise you which printers respond best to using compatibles and those to avoid as they maybe have issues accepting the compatible ink cartridges.

This is one New Year’s resolution that’s easy to keep and will surely save you money in 2014.
