Tips to Getting the Most from Your Laser Cartridges

Follow these tips to save money and keep your laser printer cartridge in top condition.

  1. Do not attempt to open the cartridge.
  2. Do not leave the cartridge in motor vehicles for any length of time, as even on a cool day the temperature can exceed safe levels. Doing so may distort the plastic in the cartridge.
  3. Store cartridges in normal room temperature.
  4. Some parts in these cartridges are light sensitive and can be damaged when exposed to excessive light.
  5. When empty, store your laser cartridge in its original plastic bag and cardboard box.
  6. Have the cartridge refilled as soon as possible.

Note: If your hands or clothes become stained with toner, wash them with lukewarm water and soap. For clothes, simply brush off outside in the open air. Do not wash toner-stained clothes in hot water as the toner will set into a permanent stain. Use cold water only.




A Cartridge World Testimonial

Here’s a testimonial from Danny the Computer Guy:

“Cartridge World makes it easy for anyone to turn in their empty printer cartridges and get a high quality re manufactured one in their place. All you need to do is swap your empty black or color ink cartridge for one that has been thoroughly tested to ensure it will work properly with your printer. Plus, it helps keep old ink tanks and toners out of the landfills.

The selection was great, the prices great and customer service was first class. They had my cartridge in stock cheaper than eBay and I didn’t have to wait for shipping. I don’t often write reviews or recommend local businesses on this site, but this one is great.”

Check them out for yourself, and tell them that Danny The Computer Guy sent you!

Cartridge World Testimonial

“I began using Cartridge World 5 years ago and was amazed at the savings. Their cartridges are full and provide the same amount of pages per cartridge as the name brand. The price was half what I was paying at office supply stores. I have 3 different brands and Cartridge World had all of them! If you’re looking to save money this is a no brainer– take your ink cartridges to Cartridge World!”   -Timothy Michael Ricke

What Does Remanufactured Mean?

You see us talk a lot about remanufactured cartridges.  This is actually a cool process we do to make the old cartridges you have be able to be used again.  It basically means that the ink cartridges have been recycled and reprocessed by the professionals of the industry. Empty printer cartridges are collected, thoroughly cleaned, and refilled with professional grade ink. Afterwards, they’re repackaged and resold.  Many businesses and home printers use the recycled ink cartridges with no problem.  Recycled ink is a great way to go it saves on your expenses and saves the environment!  Go Green!!!

Why Fill Up Landfills With Empty Cartridges?

Landfills cost a lot to maintain and when more material ends up there, costs rise. The oil that is used to produce plastic is costly as well. By recycling cartridges, less oil is used and less money spent to maintain landfills or build new ones after they fill.

Make it a point this year to NOT throw those empties away.  Recycle your cartridges by bringing them to our store.  In most cases there’s no waiting and we’ll take your empties and exchange them for refilled cartridges from our store.

You’ll love the environmental impact and the savings will make you smile as well!
