Going paperless and going green are great ways to help the environment. But at some point you will run out of reasons why you should not print something out. Because, lets face it, we all need a printed paper page at some point (take that Kindle). So, when you finally do work your way through your printer and need replacement ink cartridges you should not worry about it too much. Just get yourself up and go head over to the computer instead of the retail store, and prepare to get some ink back.
Unlike mine craft, in which you need to fall into a lake and punch a squid to death in order to obtain ink, ordering a new supply from the internet is a decidedly non-violent process. The process of selling ink, however, is. Everyone is trying to get the top spot to sell you your next ink cartridge. The name brands like HP or Epson send out warnings about half full reconditioned old cartridges, a scam ripping you and them off of millions of dollars a year. Little ink monsters dance around the screen to get your attention that you are spending too much. And, they have price wars.
If you can find yourself shopping during one of these wars you can walk away with printing cartridges for cheap, and all it takes is a little shipping time. The beauty of competition on the internet is that any consumer in the world can benefit from it instantly. But be wary of those who sell their product for cheap but their shipping for gold. A lot of people get taken every day by that one.
If you do not yet feel prepared to go out and get your ink just read up on more articles to help you understand your printer and where and how to get the best deals buying your replacement ink. Happy hunting.
