4 Tips For Using A Printer Ink Refill System In An Office

Since the cost of buying printer ink has gone up significantly in the last few years, people have had to change their purchasing habits. Gone are the days when people simply worried about how much their printer and the paper used to print on was going to cost. The cost of printers themselves have actually decreased significantly at the same time that ink prices have skyrocketed. This is because printer manufacturers make the bulk of their revenue from printer ink sales rather than from printers. As a result, many companies have begun decreasing the amount of printer ink they buy and/or decreasing how much they print. Some companies have even begun monitoring how much each individual employee prints in order to conserve money. However, a new system has come about in the printer ink refill market. Office printer ink can actually be refilled through products in this industry. There are four tips for using a printer ink refill system in the office.

Office printer ink tends to be used up rather quickly, especially in an environment where printed materials comprise the bulk of the work. But with a proper printer ink refill system, that can be avoided. The first tip for using such a system is to ensure that there is enough space, away from offices, where you can conduct the refill process. Refilling ink can sometimes be a messy job, so it’s important that you setup your workspace in an open area. Sometimes, this area will be nowhere near the printer itself. Storage rooms can be used to refill your ink cartridges, or other spaces rarely used.

Proper employee training can also go a long way toward a successful refill system. Although it seems like a straightforward process, refilling ink can be quite technical. Many companies have setup training course for employees of offices using a refill system. Only a couple of people need to be trained in order to be able to train other employees.

Make sure that the refill ink that you buy is meant not only for your printer, but your specific printer cartridge. Although it may seem like a good idea to buy a different refill ink for your printer because it is more affordable, it’s better to match up the inks than to save a little money. In fact, the printer may be damaged, or prints may not come out as well if the wrong ink is used.

One of the most important things to look for when using a refill system is that the printer is actually out of ink. Do not attempt to refill ink in a cartridge that is still full. Refill only when absolutely necessary.
