Does your company buy name brand printer ink?

Remanufactured printer ink looks the same, prints the same, and even has the same quality!

Today’s post is from Sarah Kouse a project manager at SafeSourcing.

If you are buying name brand ink (HP, Epson, Canon, etc.) for your printer when you run out, you may be spending a significant more than if you were to purchase an “off-brand” or remanufactured printer ink.

Remanufactured printer ink looks the same, prints the same, and even has the same quality, but could potentially save your company a significant amount of money if you switched from the name brand ink, and if your spend is large enough it might event get your current supplier to lower your name brand product in order to keep your business. This of course depends which product they make the most margin on.

By way of a recent example, a black ink cartridge for an HP Officejet printer that goes for around $40, you could get a combo pack set of remanufactured ink, including all of the colors (Black, Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow) for around $30. That’s about $7.50 per cartridge and 25% below your current price. If you were buying just black ink, you could purchase 5 times the amount of remanufactured black ink for the price of one single name brand cartridge. Obviously the results may differ based on volume.

The savings generated by switching to remanufactured ink can be significant, especially based on the amount of printing most companies do.
