Printers - Finding Cheap Ink Jet Cartridges

Printer users will know how expensive it is to buy new printer cartridges for your ink jet printer. The best way to save money is to buy cheap inkjet cartridges. Finding cheap ink jet cartridges can be easy if you know where to look for then. There are mainly two ways of buying printer cartridges – shop online or from a supermarket or local retail store.
The internet is the best place to buy cheap ink jet cartridges. Due to increase in demand for printer cartridges many printer suppliers find it profitable to sell their products online. The online dealers have their websites, which offer information on the various types of ink jet cartridges available for purchase. Most online sellers offer discounts, especially on bulk purchases. These are really useful for office set-ups.  Shopping online gives you the option of comparing the prices offered by the different sellers and choose the cheapest discounted price. Visit three to four websites before placing your order.  We recommend that you start with UK Ink Supplies.
But care has to be taken when you are buying online. Make sure that you buy from reputed online printer suppliers. Reputed dealers give guarantees on their products and service. Some even replace faulty cartridges without any extra charge. Buying cheap ink jet cartridges online doesn't mean that you save only on the product. You can also save on shipping and travelling expenses as well. Online dealers may have free shipping facilities if you spend over a certain amount.
The other option of finding cheap ink jet cartridges may be your local retail computer supplies store. Though prices of ink jet cartridges at retail stores are considerably higher than those offered by the online stores, sometimes the retail stores may also offer discounted prices on their printer supplies. So, watch out for deals, discounts and offers from the retail store.

Most Jet Tec cartridges supplied for Canon and Epson printers offer unique technology called "Extra Life".

Glossary of terms used in this blog.

Hi there,

I thought that it might be useful to all of our readers (Ivor) that I compile a glossary to explain the terms used on this blog and also on our UK Ink Supplies here they are:

Brother is an international company which specialises in laser toners amongst a vast range of products.  Other products include ink cartridges for Brother printers.

Canon are a Japan based international company who specialise in printer manufacturing and printing consumables.

Cartridge Flush
The Jet Tec ink cartridge flush is designed primarily to clean dried ink from the printhead of your printer.  This helps to improve the cartridge efficiency and result in higher quality prints.

Chip Resetter
A chip resetter is a device which can be used with some cartridges (usually Epson) to reset the chip and therefore enabling it to be used again after refilling and also so that you can have some idea of how many prints you have left.  Jet Tec are a UK manufacturer of Chip Resetters.

Compatible Cartridges
We supply Jet Tec compatible cartridges. Compatible cartridges are brand new cartridges supplied by an independent manufacturer, like Jet Tec. Compatible cartridges are manufactured to the same standards as original cartridges but are normally significantly cheaper. Any Compatible cartridges supplied to you by us are 100% guaranteed by their manufacturer.  Jet Tec ink cartridges offer an outstanding quality of print.

Dell is an international company based in America; they supply a variety of services to the consumer industry including: developing, manufacturing, supporting and marketing a range of electronic products which include cartridges and printers.

A worldwide corporation based in Japan. It is one of the world's largest manufacturers of inkjet, dot matrix and laser printers cartridges as well as printers themselves.

A fuser is a part of a laser printer, made of a roller and a back up roller. The fuser applies heat and pressure to ensure that the toner stays there permanently. This is why pages from a laser printer are warm when they come out of the printer.

Hewlett Packard (HP)
Commonly known as HP, Hewlett Packard is a market leader in computer based products including inkjet and laser printers and consumables.


Ink is the liquid which contains dyes and/or pigments which is used for colouring a page surface to produce graphics or text.

Inkjet Cartridge
An ink cartridge is a replaceable component of an ink jet printer that contains the ink (and sometimes the print-head itself) that is spread on paper during printing. Each ink cartridge contains one or more partitioned ink reservoirs; certain manufacturers also add electronic contacts and a chip that communicates with the printer.  This allows for the printer to recognise how much ink is left in the printer cartridge.

Ink Refill Kit
An ink refill kit is a cheap and effective way of replacing the ink in an empty printer cartridge.  This is a far cheaper method than buying a replacement ink cartridge.

Laser Printer
This is a very common type of printer and widely used by businesses in offices. It produces copies which are of a high standard. This type of printing is a Xerographic printing process.

Laser Toner Cartridge
A laser toner cartridge is a consumable item used within a printer to print. A toner cartridge can be with or without OPC (Organic Photo Conductor) depending on the type of cartridge. It has Toner powder (A type of powdery ink). Once used most Toner Cartridges can be recycled.  Both Jet Tec and GreenTech produce a range of remanufactured laser toner printer cartridges.

Photo Paper
Until the advent of digital photographic processes, the sole meaning of photographic paper was paper coated with light-sensitive chemicals. So-called photo papers of today are often specially coated papers for use in inkjet or laser printers to make digital prints. This definition focuses on traditional photographic papers. Photographic paper may be exposed to light in a controlled manner either by placing a negative in contact with the paper directly (contact printing) or by using an enlarger (enlarging) in order to create a latent image. Photographic papers are subsequently developed using wet chemicals to create a visible image.

Print Head
A Print head is the device that sprays the ink onto the piece of paper. It can be either part of the ink cartridge, or an integral component of the printer.  Usually, HP printers will have cartridges with a print head, while Epson will use a print head that is integral to the printer itself.

Printer Ribbon
A printer ribbon is an inked strip of cloth. It works by making an impression of the text, not too disimilar to they way a typewriter would work. An example of the type of printer which would use this type of ink is a Dot Matrix Printer.

Remanufactured Ink and Laser Toner Cartridges
Remanufacturing is the process of disassembly and recovery at the module level and, eventually, at the component level. It requires the repair or replacement of worn out or obsolete components and modules remanufacturing of toner and Inkjet cartridges has saved millions of cartridges from being dumped on refill sites, and brought cost savings to the consumers.  Jet Tec and GreenTech both produce a range of remanufactured inkjet and laser toner cartridges.

Toner is a dry and powdery substance used in Laser printers and photocopiers to create text or graphics on a page. Originally they were just carbon based; however more recently they are a mix of carbon and polymer. The polymer is used to bind the fibres in the paper. Toner is popular as one cartridge can print thousands of pages.

Hope that helps!
