Cartridge Options Explained

Premium & Compatible Ink Cartridges

Cartridge Options Explained

There are essentially two types of ink cartridge. The type of printer you have determines which type of cartridge you require. A Compatible is a brand new copy cartridge and a Premium is an original remanufactured / recycled cartridge. If your printer has an integral print head a Compatible cartridge will be provided. If your printer doesn't come with an integral print head (therefore the printhead is a part of the cartridge and not the printer) we will provide you with a Premium cartridge. All our cartridges are of the highest standard and are simply a lower cost option to an original cartridge. Print quality and page yields are guaranteed to meet or exceed what you would expect from an original product.

All Other Compatible Products

All Compatible products are made to the highest standards and are simply a lower cost option that guarantees print quality and yield and will meet or exceed the quality and yield of original products.

Compatible Toner Cartridges

Compatible toner cartridges are brand new copy cartridges. They will meet or exceed the quality and yield of original products and guarantees perfect print quality and yield every time. Certain components in the toner are only designed to work for one full life cycle and therefore the cartridge cannot be fully recycled after use. The print quality is guaranteed to provide crisp and sharp text.

Premium Toner Cartridges

Premium toner cartridges are premium quality remanufactured toners that have been recycled for the first time. They are remanufactured original cartridges that have had parts replaced to ensure the utmost standard of reliability while the highest grade of toner powder is used to guarantee that print reproduction is nothing short of outstanding. Every Premium toner cartridge is checked and tested prior to dispatch.
