Remanufactured Printer Cartridges vs Compatible Printer Cartridges

At Anything Printing we are frequently asked what the difference is between our Remanufactured printer cartridges and other compatible cartridge options available in the marketplace. In this article we compare the two options, explain the main differences between both options and why our Re-manufactured printer cartridges are superior in quality.

The #1 reason consumers look to an aftermarket printer cartridge is cost savings.  With the cost of printer consumables constantly on the rise consumers look for a more cost-effective option to help save on their monthly bottom line in-house/ in-office printing costs.

In this article we take a look at our Remanufactured cartridges vs Compatible cartridge options available and why our premium remanufactured inks and toners should receive some serious consideration.

Cartridge Components (The working parts inside your cartridge)
A Compatible printer cartridge is made from all new parts which are closely copied to mimic the original cartridge.  None of the parts are recycled and all plastics, aluminum and other components are brand new knock-offs.  Often times the components used are made with the goal of matching the OEM specs but more often than not lack the quality the manufacturer intended for the cartridge.  

Our Remanufactured printer cartridges are made from a combination of new and recycled components. They are created by taking an original (used/ empty) cartridge and taking it through our proprietary automated quality control process of cleaning, examining, replacing worn out parts, filling it with (Manufacturer) ink and toner and post testing the cartridge before resale.  The body of the cartridge is made by the same manufacturer that made your printer. Many of the parts inside our cartridges are reused original components that may have been cleaned and left for a second cycle.  

Quality
Compatible printer cartridges are made with the main goal to produce a new cartridge as cheaply as possible.  None of the original cartridge components are re-used and some of the true cartridge features are not included.  Instead, new components are created to closely match and mimic the functionality of the original cartridge.  In a lot of manufacturing environments compatible cartridges are assembled by hand, by unskilled workers with little to no quality control processes in place.

Our Remanufactured cartridges start by using an OEM manufacturer cartridge and we inspect and test the empty cartridge for damage or defect.  We use a lot of OEM parts in our process to ensure integrity of the cartridge.  Our process is 100% automated and our products must meet OEM manufacturer standards. Our Remanufactured cartridges are also print tested for quality before they are packaged for resale.  

While the remanufactured printer cartridge starts from a high quality base, the compatible printer cartridge starts from the cheapest base.  Compatible printer cartridges are produced so cheaply that they can be dumped on the market for even less than the cost of a re-manufactured cartridge. An empty core which is required to create a remanufactured cartridge, could be more expensive than the whole cost of the new compatible cartridge.

Fit
While our Remanufactured printer cartridges are made from an original cartridge made by the manufacturer of your printer to exacting specifications, the Compatible printer cartridge is made to closely match the original.  Because of these varying degrees of tolerances the Compatible cartridge may not fit in your printer as well as the Remanufactured cartridge. Due to poor fit, frequent printing issues may arise. Your printer could also be physically damaged by a poor fitting compatible printer cartridge.

Environment
A Compatible printer cartridge uses all new parts and resources and wastes approximately 5 pounds of our Earth’s natural resources.  A Remanufactured printer cartridge reuses many of the original cartridge parts.  Because of this, far fewer of the natural resources go toward creation of a Remanufactured cartridge. 

Toner and Ink
In a lot cases Compatible cartridges replace using genuine OEM toner with cheap bulk toner or ink. Bulk toner and ink is used to fill a wide variety of different manufacturer cartridges.

Our Remanufactured cartridges use genuine OEM toner for all manufacturers. If it’s an HP cartridge it gets HP ink!

Country of Origin
A large portion of Compatible cartridges originate in China and Hong Kong.

Our Remanufactured cartridges are made in North America in the USA.

Warranty
Some Compatible cartridges  offer a 30-90 day warranty but the order takes almost a month to get to you.

Our Remanufactured cartridges are backed by a 1 year warranty.  We also have a dedicated technical support line for any questions or issues.

We carry a wide variety of Remanufactured ink, toner and MICR toner for Brother, Canon, Epson, Hewlett Packard, Lexmark, Samsung, Toshiba, Xerox and more.

Leasing a printer vs Buying a printer

A lot has changed in the printing industry over the last 10 years.  The more money you can save on costs to run your business, the better. However, business decisions are not always just about the bottom line. In some cases, the line between the red and black can be a little blurred. Such is the case when trying to decide between buying or leasing a printer. Printers used for large-scale business applications can be expensive and cost you significant money up front. Leasing is an option to allay those costs, but you may end up paying more in the long run. You should take into account several considerations when deciding between the two.

The initial cost for buying a printer for your office may be several hundred or thousand dollars. This amount depends on the quality of the equipment you buy. You may need more than one printer. The initial cost of renting printers is significantly less than buying printers outright. You may end up paying an initial security deposit and your first month’s rental fees, but this should leave you with some additional money in the bank that you can use for other purposes.

Technological Changes
As technology continues to change rapidly, it may be necessary to replace your printers fairly often to keep up with those changes. If you buy your printers, replacing them will cost you a significant amount of money each time you do so. This may give you reason to hold off on purchases for a year or two until your old printers become obsolete. If you have a good lease, however, you may be able to upgrade your equipment without any significant change in price and as often as needed. The downside to leasing, in terms of technological upgrades, is that you may not have much choice when it comes to the new equipment you get.

Support
Leasing with the right company can present you with a significant advantage when it comes to getting technical support. Leasing companies generally provide support for the products they lease, and such support may cost you no additional money out of your pocket. Buying a printer, however, will require that you pay for your own repairs and rely on the manufacturer for technical support. This can prove to be expensive if you have to buy additional parts. The cost of printer ink also may add up fairly quickly if you buy, whereas a leasing company may replace ink for you as needed.  Most suppliers can help find a printer that has reasonable cartridges/ toner cost with high page yields.

Taxes
When it comes to tax deductions, both printing and leasing can help you reduce your tax liability. In general, the Government will allow you to deduct certain costs associated with running your business. Equipment costs, whether leased or purchased, are usually lumped in with those tax deductions. Generally though, the tax deductions tend to be more significant if you purchase the equipment.

Both “Purchasing” and “Leasing” have there pros and cons, but the decision should be made ultimately on the type of work, monthly print volumes and budget the customer has.

Please contact us with any of your questions, experiences or advice buying or leasing a printer.
