Purchasing ink consumables costs business a great deal of money, and the cost savings of compatible or recycled cartridges equates to a real reduction in your printing costs.

These strict performance and compatibility requirements may make you think twice about saving money on an off-brand cartridge. Therefore, A little research may save you cash because, while manufacturers encourage you to use their own-brand consumables, Compatible cartridges are available for most printers.
TYPES OF INK
Whatever technology is applied to printer hardware, the final product consists of ink on paper, these two elements are vitally important when it comes to producing the best quality results. Two entirely different types ink in inkjet cartridges used with inkjet printers: Dye based and pigmented. Dye based ink have high brilliance and wide colour gamut, but are not light fast or water-fast enough. They are slow at penetrating and take about ten seconds to dry. However, Pigmented inks are more waterproof and fade-resistant and fast-drying which dry at about 100 times this speed. The former is generally better suited to straightforward monochrome printing, while the latter is used for colour. Colour printing, because different inks are mixed, they need to dry as quickly as possible to avoid blurring. If slow-drying ink is used for colour printing, the colours tend to bleed into one another before they’ve dried.
Original Equipment Manufacturer(OEM) INKJET CARTRIDGES
A brand name inkjet carries the brand name of the manufacturer on it, usually the same as the printer manufacturer, for example, Epson inks, Canon, Hewlett Packard, etc. Value Shop have worked hard to bring you the latest OEM products at superb prices.
COMPATIBLE INK CARTRIDGES
A company other than the original printer manufacturer manufactures compatible or unbranded inkjet cartridges. There are a large number of such manufacturers and the quality of their product can vary according to the quality of ink they use. Compatible cartridges are completely new, generally reliable and perform as well as brand name cartridges. Our Epson Ink cartridges are really cheap and in our opinion equal to the originals.
REMANUFACTURED INK CARTRIDGES
A remanufactured inkjet cartridge, by definition, is a cartridge, which has been refilled with ink. Primarily you will only find remanufactured Inkjet cartridges for Hewlett Packard, Lexmark and some Canon printers, as they have patented their inkjet cartridge designs. Therefore, Many people choose to refill their own Ink cartridges, as there are refill stations available to do it you. We do not sell remanufactured Epson inks.
COST OF A REPLACEMENT INK CARTRIDGE
The cost of brand name inkjet cartridges can be exceedingly high in comparison to compatible or remanufactured inkjet cartridges. In many cases, compatible inkjet cartridges can be as much as 70% less than the cost of brand name cartridges making them a good economical option.
It is easy to source cartridges for Epson, Hewlett Packard and Canon printers. The Epson ink cartridge has a fixed print head and the Hewlett Packard type has print heads in the inkjet cartridge itself. Canon produces printers of both types and a halfway system with a removable print head unit that takes small cartridges.
The fixed print head printer (Epson inks) uses cheaper ink cartridges that are only ink tanks. It has one drawback; if the printer is only used occasionally, the print head can dry out and become blocked. The printer is then likely to be a write-off. It is almost very difficult to clear a blocked print head.
The printer that has print heads in the ink cartridges (Hewlett Packard, Lexmark, Canon) can also suffer from a blocked print head. If this should happen, only a single ink cartridge is lost. Print head ink cartridges cost more than the ink tank type but often contain more ink.
Epson have introduced a series of inkjet printers that use chipped ink cartridges. The microchips offer no advantages to the user over the original system that Epson used for its earlier printers to indicate the amount of ink left. Epson introduced the chips to make it difficult if not impossible for the compatible ink cartridge makers to produce cartridges for the new printers. Nevertheless, the compatible ink cartridge companies have now produced cartridges with compatible chips. These tend to cost slightly more than the unchipped cartridges but are still considerably cheaper than the Epson originals; search for the latest prices using the drop down ink cartridge selector above.
