How to save money on Brother printer cartridges and ink
As you know, Brother ink cartridges are the replaceable components of the ink jet printer containing the Brother printer ink and sometimes the print-head itself), spread on paper during printing.
Each of the Brother ink cartridges has at least one partitioned ink reservoir. Usually, two separate Brother printer cartridges are placed in a printer: one with black Brother printer ink and one with Brother printer ink in each of the three primary colours. Some Brother printer cartridges are designed specifically for the printing of photographs.
When the ink first begins to run thin, you should refill or replace the ink cartridge, to avoid damage to the print-head which can be caused by over-heating.
Typically, ink cartridges from all manufacturers, not just Brother printer cartridges, can be very expensive, and there have previously been consumer campaigns about this issue, along with plenty of online rants about the price of cartridges.
Consumer champion Which? magazine, for example, has called for an industry standard for measuring ink cartridge performance, and has reported that, millilitre for millilitre, some printer cartridges can be seven times more expensive than vintage champagne.
In the UK, more than five years ago, the pricing of printer cartridges was the subject of an Office of Fair Trading investigation.
Indeed, consumers are often surprised at just how much it costs to replace printer cartridges, compared to the cost of a new printer. This reason for this is that many printer manufacturers find that they lose money on printer sales, and look to recoup this loss by selling refill cartridges and printer ink at a very high cost.
So people are always looking to find ways of buying Brother ink cartridges at a reasonable price, especially in these tough economic times. Some opt to have their printer cartridges refilled or purchased remanufactured cartridges from third parties to save money against the cost of buying new ink cartridges. But this method isn’t always the best guarantee of quality.
As with all other manufacturers, Brother ink cartridges and Brother printer ink are unique to Brother printers, and other types may be incompatible physically or electrically.
