There are several key factors you should look for when buying an ink cartridge. Your selection of ink cartridge providers shouldn’t just be any random choice. In order to protect your business and the environment, you will want to be mindful of the following:
Excellent Prices. Ink cartridges can be costly, particularly if you are running a business (or even if you work from home where you have to pay for your own ink). You will want to find a provider that offers great prices so that you can reduce your printing expenses and put those savings elsewhere!
Free Shipping. Many companies charge for shipping, which adds to your total cost. Sometimes companies may even mark up shipping to put a few more dollars in their pocket. Doing business with a company that offers free shipping adds to your overall savings.
Excellent Quality. While you want to save money, you obviously don’t want to compromise quality. Make sure the company you do business with does not skimp in the quality department. There is nothing worse than paying for something only to find out it’s of poor quality when you go to use it. Then you have to go through the hassle of returning it and dealing with the refund process and/or suffer from the low quality blues while you wait for a new cartridge.
Large selection. With such a variety of printers out there, and many homes and companies having more than one type of printer, it is best to select a provider that offers a large selection of cartridges. For example, if you have an Epson garment printer, you don’t have to worry about your print supply, as you can order everything online. This prevents you from having to look around to find cartridges for your other printers and make separate orders. It also increases the likelihood that you will be able to stay with the same company down the line when you upgrade your printer.
Free Recycling Program. Protecting the environment is important. Look for a cartridge provider that offers a free recycling program. Don’t be one of those people who contributes to the dumping of an estimated half a billion ink cartridges in landfills because you chose a company that does not recycle (or charges for it). It takes a cartridge up to one thousand years to decompose, but each cartridge can be recycled up to four times! If your ink cartridge supplier is serious about the environment, they will offer free recycling.
Great Service. Last, but certainly not least, you want great service. No one wants to deal with a company that has bad customer service. It makes any kind of interaction with the company a frustrating experience. Excellent, friendly, service should be a pillar of any company but, unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Make sure you are treated right by choosing a provider that will take care of you and treat you like royalty.
