    Ink cartridges don’t die when the ink runs out
    Refilling ink cartridges is the latest trend
    NOV
    06 There was a point in time, not too long ago, when the ordinary
    household or office printer cost a fortune for both managerial staff
    and the average shopper. (Those days, however, are long over.)It is now
    customary to purchase most types of printers at economical prices; some
    can even be bought at bargain basement cost levels. These printers have
    changed with the times and have become technically elevated with the
    movement, yet the prices are substantially smaller amounts than the
    times of yesteryear.The greatest expense in the printing industry is
    solely from the ink cartridges. That little cartridge is the key to the
    black-and-white copies or the coloured prints, and depending on how
    much and how frequently the printing is done, the more often it needs
    to be changed. A new trend has become an industry all of its own −
    stores that refill empty ink cartridges.The ink cartridge refilling
    industry has become a booming one in the last few years. Many strong
    leaders, in the now crowded marketplace, have emerged from the pack and
    imitators are now a dime a dozen. Customers buying this service,
    though, sometimes know little about the tune up they are receiving”One
    of the biggest benefits is that you save around 60 per cent off the
    price on what you would pay for a new cartridge,” said Nicole Azzi,
    manager of an Island Ink Jet location, one of the most popular and
    well-known chains in the ink cartridge retail market. “Another big
    benefit is that you are helping to save the environment since
    cartridges take thousands of years to decompose in landfills.” Azzi
    says that there are many misconceptions of refilling your ink
    cartridge. One is how long the process actually takes to be carried
    out. “It honestly takes only 20 minutes,” she said. She also says that
    the average cartridge can be refilled up to three or four times,
    depending on how regularly you use the cartridge. The more regularly
    you use it, the more times you can fill it. “If you are going to refill
    your cartridge, make sure you refill before the ink is all gone and
    dried out to make for more refills” said Azzi. Alfred Schall, a
    computer technologist with Abren Computing Services, has a slightly
    different view. When asked whether refilling is a good method, his
    answer is simple and succinct. “It is pretty much a combination of good
    and bad,” said Alfred candidly. “Sometimes, these companies do more
    damage than good. Sometimes, lower class stores use the wrong ink and
    can damage the printer, so you have to make sure the store where you
    get the refill at is a reliable and respectable one.” He was quick to
    point out that this practice can be a wealth of savings monetarily and
    environmentally.He also points out that refilling ink hurts the printer
    manufacturing industry, which has lowered printer prices since much of
    their money is made off of ink sales. The biggest risk he feels people
    should consider when refilling ink is that if the wrong ink is used,
    they suffer the chance of wrecking their printer; however, as long as
    you are diligent on your purchase, this can be avoided. Ink cartridge
    refilling is an industry that is growing continuously. In the end, its
    growth or decline will definitely depend on customer satisfaction, the
    quality of stores and the prices.
