Why is printer ink so expensive anyway?
Printer brands like HP, Epson, and Canon often sell competitive priced printers to get consumers to buy their products. Later, they hope to make the money back from selling the ink and toner cartridges to those customers that wish to keep their printers running. When the printer’s manufacturer (HP, Canon, Epson) makes OEM printer cartridges – aka ink or toner, they are all marked up to cover for the cost of manufacturing printers.
So how can you save money on ink?
There are two ways. The first way is to use a laser printer. It has been proven time and again a laser printer is more cost-effective than an inkjet printer. The second way is to use a remanufactured ink cartridges or compatible toners and drums. They are priced much lower than an original (OEM) cartridge, saving both home users and businesses thousands of dollars.
