Technology has advanced to a point where computers and printers have become a necessity for daily living. Gone are the days when everything from utility bills to letters from loved ones were sent via post.
Now everything is done online and if you need any documents, you need to print them yourself. Inkjet printers are designed to use four-colour process printing, otherwise known as CMYK; C for Cyan, M for Magenta, Y for Yellow and K for Black. The ink used is oil-based and once an image is sent through the PC to the printer, it is printed via special rollers, which basically copy and paste the image onto the paper by using water and a manipulation of all four colours. Most printers are designed to only take four cartridges.
Branded, generic and reusable cartridges
Price is always a factor when deciding on which ink cartridge to buy. Ideally, buying branded cartridges is the best option to ensure quality printing results and also for the longevity of your printer. However, branded cartridges can be expensive, and in the current economic climate of constant price hikes, we are forced to cut down on our more “luxurious” expenses.
It’s worth bearing in mind that price doesn’t always reflect quality and that there are reputable companies who will supply you with a generic ink cartridge that is compatible with your printer. You can also choose to refill your used cartridges for a fraction of the price and still get quality printouts from your machine, but is best to get this done by a company that has the right equipment to do the job right and with a quality reusable cartridge.
