Your office printer – with its multitude of functionalities and capabilities – not only improves office workflow and overall office efficiency, but with its quality and performance, keeps your business looking professional.
There’s nothing worse than heading into an important meeting and finding that the graphs and images you’ve just printed off are faded, streaked or blurry. It makes your work look like a rush-job and your business look unprofessional. But why does your high-quality printer produce such poor image quality? It may be because you’re using non-genuine toners.
It’s true that printing costs can quickly add up, yet there are simple things you can do to ensure your devices are working at peak performance and that your print jobs always look they were printed by a professional. One of the simplest things you can do is invest in genuine consumables, such as genuine toners.
Have you ever found that you burn through your cartridges, your colours are off and you need to have your device serviced more often than you’d like? It could be because you’re using non-genuine toners. Sourcing cheap consumables is a common tactic businesses use to save money. But the truth is that non-genuine toners cost your business significantly more in the long run. From lower page yield to machine downtime and loss of productivity and the lasting damage to your device, non-genuine toners are infinitely more expensive in the long term and just not worth the ‘cheaper’ outlay.
So what’s the real difference between genuine and non-genuine toner?
Genuine toner cartridges – also known as OEM cartridges (Original Equipment Manufacturer) – are cartridges that are specifically made by the company that built your printer. OEM toner and cartridges are designed to work with your specific printer, whereas non-genuine or remanufactured cartridges aren’t.
Non-genuine toner is created by a third party supplier that claims their toners are ‘compatible’ with certain printers, when in truth, they aren’t. More often than not, non-genuine toners are recycled from used toner cartridges, with parts replaced by lesser quality alternatives.
You’re not really saving anything by using non-genuine toner
One of the biggest reasons people decide to purchase non-genuine toners is because they think it’s saving them money. However, if your non-genuine toner is delivering mediocre print jobs, which don’t accurately represent your value proposition, then what’s the point of saving a few dollars here and there? Poor quality print jobs not only make your work looks less professional, but it likewise may make you look inferior to your competition.
As we said – your printer is an essential part of your business and that means you expect the best quality, performance and reliability from your device. So why opt for something that isn’t genuine? Here are four reasons you need to be using genuine toner and why it’ll benefit your business today and into the future.
