Choosing a printer is more than just finding a brand you like and then purchasing it. When I look at printers, I try to consider not only the upfront cost of the printer, but also the cost of buying ink and toners in the future. Those costs can really add up! We switched to a laser printer several years ago after our inkjet kept drying up because we didn’t use it frequently enough – but I do miss being able to print in color since we got a simple black and white laser printer. I was excited to discover 123inkjets and decided to pull out my inkjet and try it out again. I’ve fallen back in love with it although the ink will dry up faster than I can use it, but since it’s lower cost and eco-friendly I’m using it more than I expected.
One of my favorite features of my printer is the ability to print double sided (which is more eco friendly). I recently learned of a toner company that takes and recycles the toners we use in an eco friendly way so we can purchase them at a lower cost! 123 Inkjets can save between 50 – 75% of the cost of a toner, and they help the earth! How awesome is that!
They are a big supplier and have discounted toner and ink cartridges for almost every type of printer – even for my really old style one! This made me pull out my old ink jet printer which I had retired to try out a cartridge in it as my son needed to do a school project that I wanted to print out in color. The results were perfect. I loved that you also got a volume discount if you bought more than one of a specific cartridge which for me was great, because I always ran out of black ink far before I ran out of any of the colors. They offer both original manufacturer cartridges at a discount as well as compatible ones – and the best part?!? They don’t void the warranty if you have one on your printer. They also offer a two year satisfaction guarantee which lets you stock up and buy what you need – get a discount and if for some reason it doesn’t work in the two year period, you can return it. No questions asked. How awesome is that?
123inkjets was established in 1999 and they are based in California. Most orders ship the same day from their headquarters, and they have a great customer service team. They use print cartridges which have been through “one lifecycle” meaning that they have been used up and then rebuild them to provide the same service as they did when they were brand new – for some cartridges this means that the chip will still work – like it did in my HP Office Jet. I had trouble in the past buying toner from another remanufacturer as it caked and didn’t work as well as I would have liked, this time I was happy that my cartridge was recognized and was ready to use in moments.
#backtoschool means back to printing in my house with reports, letters, recipes and more. It means more computer time and thankfully I’m glad to have a toner and ink solution that is eco-friendly, has great customer service and can supply what I need when I need it. 123inkjets is a great company to work with and the fact that they stand behind their products is a huge selling point in my book!
