HP inkjet technology is pretty cool

HP inkjet technology is really pretty amazing.  If you take a close look at how HP (also known as Hewlett Packard) inkjet cartridges work, you will see how innovative this company really is.  Ink droplets are jetted out of tiny holes in the bottom of the cartridge (called print-heads), at a speed of around 30 mph.  And the frequency that they are jetted? According to HP, more than 25,000 times per second! These print heads get electrical signals from the printer about how much ink droplets to jet, and at what specific part of the page.

Prices going crazy for toner

How about the new Lexmark toner cartridges for the Lexmark C930 or C935n?  (the “n” by the way stands for network).  $300+ per cartridge for an original toner cartridge.  You can find remanufactured versions for around $200 or slightly less, thats a handsome $100 off.  Or you can refill them for under $100, saving you about $200. Toner refills are not as common as buying new cartridges, but for 1/2 the price, they are very good money savers.  The toner refill kits from Atlantic Inkjet will work on almost all major laser toner printers, and usually save customers between 40 to 80% as compared to buying store bought replacement cartridges.

The first cartridge I ever refilled

This is the story of someone who began refilling their own cartridges, and through that experience went into the business of selling refills and the idea of refills to others.In the early 2000’s, my cartridge ran out of ink.  It was a Canon BCI-21 series cartridge (printer was a Canon MultiPass, taking a BCI-21 black and BCI-21 color ink cartridge).  The 2 cartridges could be substituted with the thicker Canon BC-20 inkjet cartridge, which would offer more black ink and require that the printer prints in monochrome mode (black only).A set of new inkjet cartridges from the college bookstore cost around $40, a heavy price for a college student, and about 1/2 of what a new printer would cost.  In fact, you can pick up a printer for as low as $60 today (for an inkjet printer).  Taking a closer look at the inkjet cartridges, a light bulb went off…

How do people select a printer thats good for their needs?

Here is a story that was relayed today by a customer.  A very informed customer that is that cares about saving money and refilling his printer ink.Today I walked into Best Buy, and browsed the printer section.  I asked the customer service rep what printer he would recommend. He wasn’t sure how to answer me, or what questions he should ask me to ascertain what elements or functions of a printer I am most interested in.  He coughed, said a few unrelated things, and beckoned someone to help.  That someone was very “cool”, called me dude, and also did not ask me any questions.  He just zoomed past the printer aisle (passing by at least 10-15 printers on the way, mostly inkjet by the way – not sure why laser toners don’t feature as much on Best Buy shelves), and quickly pointed to 3 printers: a Canon, an Epson and a Lexmark (called Genesis).  I said “why did you suggest these 3?”, he said “Because they are newer and cool.  But it depends on how much printing you do”.  Go figure.  Anyway, I thanked him for his time, and began to do some investigating myself.

Glossy Optimizer Inks

Did you know that some printer ink cartridges use Glossy inks? Glossy optimizer inks are used in some very unique printer cartridges, specifically and most popular models are the Epson R800, Epson R1800 and Epson R1900.  Also the Kodak #10 and #30 (which are the newest Kodak ink cartridges) also use the Glossy inks.  These glossy inks are hard to find, but Atlantic Inkjet has released them in different sizes and also part of the Atlantic Inkjet Kodak ink refill kit. Just search our Atlantic Inkjet site for Kodak ink refills.
