WHY YOU SHOULDN’T PRINT YOURSELF

 

If you own a business, you should never print marketing material yourself on a home printer. It is always more cost effective & cheaper to use a professional print company, even for small quantities.

 

HOME PRINTER INK IS ONE OF THE MOST EXPENSIVE LIQUIDS

IN THE WORLD – FACT!

WHY IS IT SO EXPENSIVE?

Cartridges are only a basic plastic casing with inks & chips:

  • All home printers are sold at a loss by manufacturers
  • Many printers are as cheap as a set of replacement ink cartridges
  • Printer cost is recouped back by the overpriced cartridges – also known as the razor & blades business model
  • Cartridges need constant replacement

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE CHIPS

Chips are a very clever piece of technology:

  • Cartridge chips are designed to make you spend more
  • If one colour is low, chip tells the printer to stop even if all the other colours are full. The printer will not run until this colour is replaced
  • Printer monitors ink levels regularly & gives inaccurate low warnings
  • Colours are added deliberately by the chip when printing black & white documents
  • Home print outs are often inconsistent with broken lines etc.
  • Fixing printer errors wastes more ink – cleaning print heads, test prints etc.
  • Chips designed to prevent refilling or use of 3rd party products
