Businesses of all sizes are looking for creative ways to keep their budgets lean and their bottom lines in order. But an office set-up with printers and copiers — notorious consumers of costly ink and toner cartridges — is at the core of most businesses.
The average office employee uses 10,000 sheets of paper annually in a copier or printer, making it obvious where a large chunk of your budget is ending up.
And that is the figure for one employee. What if your company has three or more employees using printers? That amounts to vast amounts of paper and ink each year.
Since ink and toner represent the most substantial amount of money spent on the printing process, it’s no surprise that the expense of ink cartridges is the most sensitive pain point for the office manager looking to lean down their print budget.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could save 25% or more over the cost of OEM ink or toner cartridges?
That’s where remanufactured cartridges come in. Let’s explore how you can not only access significant cost savings on ink and toner cartridges but also help conserve natural resources.
3 Powerful Benefits of Remanufactured Ink Cartridges
Conserving natural resources is something we should all aspire to do. And if you are in business, it’s even more important to focus on sustainability.
Why? Because consumers want to spend their time — and money — with companies that care about our environment.
Remanufactured cartridges help your business get to the bottom of both issues — and provide outstanding performance and reliability to boot.
1. Cost Savings for Bottom Line Health
Typically, 80-90% of the cost of ownership of a typical laser printer cost comes from ongoing purchases of toner cartridges. Over one year, this can add up to an incredible $8,000 on a high-end model.
Remanufactured cartridges of the same quality can save up to 25% over the printer’s life, giving your business an easy way to reduce expenditures while maintaining high-quality output.
2. A Positive Impact for Your Company — and the Environment
According to the latest numbers, more than 375 million OEM cartridges are disposed of each year, clogging landfills. The fact it takes one cartridge nearly a thousand years to decompose brings the enormous environmental burden to the planet into sharp focus.
Additionally, these cartridges are considered potentially carcinogenic and can leak toxic chemicals into the soil, contaminating underground aquifers.
Each remanufactured cartridge you buy keeps another cartridge out of the landfill, halting an entire chain of adverse environmental effects.
Remanufacturers of high-end cartridges like Clover offer programs to encourage the return of empty cartridges for reuse and recycling.
3. Reliability and Flexibility
A high-quality remanufactured ink cartridge has been taken apart, so the moving and worn out parts can be replaced. Then, it is expertly refilled with ink or toner that is an exact match for the OEM cartridge it replaces.
These cartridges are guaranteed to produce crisp, clear pages as good — or better than — the equivalent OEM cartridge, ensuring you have consistent, reliable output.
Remanufactured cartridges result in a lower consumable cost so you can position print workstations where they are needed.
For example, locating smaller laser printers throughout the office rather than one large machine might seem extravagant considering the higher cost-per-page. But the lower cost of remanufactured cartridges means you will have the extra capital necessary to develop your printer fleet to suit your specific workflow.
