Refill ‘er up

Refill ‘er up

Ink wars! OfficeMax, Wallgreens & Cartridge World all have ink refilling services – ” A new battle is brewing in the technology trenches over a very old product: ink. What was once seen as a grimy task reserved for frugal technology geeks, environmentalists and hobbyists is now about to be legitimized in a huge way, as at least two big retailers roll out inkjet refilling stations at stores nationwide. Consumers, who now change printing cartridges more often than lightbulbs, would be able to save up to 50 percent off the cost of new cartridges that are used to print everything from digital photos to term papers and range in price from $20 to $200.”Link.

    Walgreens and Officemax do not refill all cartridges. Quite frankly their quality is just poor and none of their staff are trained on the machines. Cartridge World focuses on the quality of their products and everytime I use the store nearby in Fort Lauderdale the ink technician knows what he’s talking about! The wide range of cartridge refills offered at Cartridge World is amazing and that is their specialty!
