Tips on How to Choose Right Ink For Printers

As important as finding the right kind of printer for your specific needs, for example photo printer, laser, inkjet, all-in-one printer or any other kind of printer, it is equally important to find and use the right kind of ink for these printers.

In the past I have used many different printers, anywhere from consumer grade HP, Canon, Lexmark, Epson, Brother to high-end professional grade Xerox, Kyocera, Ricoh printers. All of them have one thing in common. Ink!

Although the amount of pages per ink cartridge can vary based on your printing habits and type of prints that you produce, in this article I will give you some tips to get the best results for your buck.

DIY Refill Kits: You sure can save money in ink cartridges at the initial purchase price but these kits aren't for everybody. Some people need fairly precise vendor ink matching. Photo printing, for instance, is one area in which small differences can become big ones. If you don't deal well with tools, don't like to follow instructions to the letter, and are really afraid of making a mess, you don't want one of these kits.

Generic Brand: In most cases generic brand ink cartridges works great and is a very cost effective alternative to the original brand. Usually by using a generic brand you will save about %35- %50 of the cost. The main drawback on generic brands is the quality of the actual ink can be very low. So even a non-technical person can see the problems with the color matching in your results

Original Brand: By far the safest and most quality solution is the original brand. The cartridges will fit %100 and the manufacturing process is of these inks are governed by an industry standard. So your print quality will remain the same from the first page to the last page. Biggest drawback on original brands is the price tag. If quality is more important to you than price tag it is always the best choice to buy an original brand ink cartridge.
