OEM Printer Cartridges offer excellent print quality and dependable performance. The reason for this is that printer makers nearly always adapt their ink and toner formulas to match the specific characteristics of each individual printer model.

OEM Cartridges FAQ:

  1. What is an OEM Ink Cartridge?
  2. How costly are OEM Ink Cartridges?

What is an OEM Ink Cartridge?

OEM Printer Cartridges (also referred to as Original or Genuine Cartridges) are produced by the original equipment maker of the printer. These cartridges are almost seldom as cheap as compatible cartridges, such those made by Jet Tec. The reason for this is the business model that most big brand printer makers employ. They are prepared to lose money when selling the printer and instead expect to gain profits from the cartridge sales over the life span of the printer.

Ink Cartridge designs are often patented and intentionally designed to make it hard for the end user to refill old ink cartridges, thereby forcing them to buy new ones and tying them to the printer maker. Since designs are patented, discount cartridge manufacturers often re-use and refill the cartridges made by the OEM. This creates a way to open up the ink market without infringing on the patents.

A continuous stream of new printer cartridge models has reached the market since the compatible cartridges took significant market share. That’s why it normally takes a couple of months before compatible cartridges for new printer models reach the shops. The manufacturers need to build a stock of empty printer cartridges before they can produce and sell them in larger quantities.

How costly are OEM Ink Cartridges?

OEM cartridges are without doubt more costly compared to buying compatible or remanufactured cartridges. OEM cartridges are generally between 10% – 70% more expensive depending on printer brand and cartridge type.

Find cost comparisons between different cartridge types below:

  • Cost comparison – Compatible versus OEM cartridges
  • Cost comparison – Remanufactured versus OEM cartridges
  • Remember that the quality of the ink or toner is only one factor to achieve good printing results. The printing paper also needs to have the correct characteristics in relation to the ink or toner which in turn needs to be suitable for the printer.

    Brother Canon Dell Epson HP Lexmark

    Ink Cartridges are integral parts of Inkjet printers supplying them with a continuous flow of new Ink.

      1. What is an Inkjet Ink Cartridge?

    About Inkjet Ink Cartridges

    Ink Cartridges act as ink tanks for inkjet printers and sometimes contain a printhead and one or more chips for printer communication and status indication.

    Printers from manufacturers Lexmark, HP and Dell often have ink cartridges with an integrated printhead, while Brother, Epson and Canon ink cartridges consist of just an ink tank with some basic technology. The cost of the ink cartridge is greatly affected by the location of the printhead. By placing it in the cartridge, the cartridge price goes up since complexity is added to the manufacturing process, electronic components and wiring needs to be added.

    In most cases there is one separate container for black ink and separate containers for Cyan, Magenta and Yellow ink. Versions of containers also exist where Cyan, Magenta and Yellow ink all are encased in the same ink cartridge unit. Out of these four colours all other colours in the colour spectrum can be created during the printing process.

    Compatible Ink Cartridges

    Compatible Ink Cartridges are produced by third party manufacturers, such as Jet Tec.

    The debate has been running high in the last years on whether or not compatible ink is as good as original ink. Pros and cons arguably exist for both cartridge types. We at UK Ink Supplies sincerely believe that compatible ink is the best choice for all users for all types of printing. Also, many Jet Tec ink cartridges are available with up to 100% Extra Life!

    Independent research from TrustedReviews actually shows that reviewers generally prefer compatible ink over OEM Original ink.

    Just remember that print quality is not just dependent on the ink quality, but also on the printer and the paper being printed on. To achieve good results, all these factors need to be accounted for.

    We recommend you to buy from well known and long established ink stores such as UK Ink Supplies, that have the credibility and the product and refund policies to back you up.

    Original Ink Cartridges

    OEM/Original Ink Cartridges are produced by the printer manufacturer themselves. A significant part of the printer makers’ profit actually comes from selling the ink and not the printer. Did you know that Inkjet Ink is probably the most expensive liquid per volume you will ever buy? It’s actually more expensive than Champagne, Perfume and Petrol and other expensive substances that come to your mind!

    Read more about OEM Cartridges.

    Remanufactured Ink Cartridges

    Remanufactured Ink Cartridges are produced from recycled materials. Buying this cartridge type is not only good for your wallet but also for the environment since this reduces waste and energy consumption. Read more about the environmental savings in our Remanufactured Cartridges article
    article.

    A fourth option is to buy an ink refill kit so that you can refill your empty ink cartridges yourself. Remember that empty cartridges are best refilled while they are still fresh. If they are empty and unused for too long, there is a risk that your print head (if applicable) has been clogged up.

    During their relatively short history, Lexmark have continuously been working to push printing to new areas and to broaden the market by pushing down prices and making printing equipment affordable for all.

    The History of Hewlett Packard (HP)

    Two friends and schoolmates from Standford University, Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard, formed Hewlett Packard (HP) in 1939 with only 8 at hand and working from a one-car garage in Palo Alto.

    During the years, a large array of products spanning from almost every corner of the information technology field have been produced by HP.

    The first inkjet printers and laser printers for the desktop were produced by HP in 1984 and signalled their entry into the printer and ink cartridge market. Along with its scanner product line, these have later been developed into successful multifunction products, the most significant being single-unit printer/scanner/copier/fax machines, often known as MFCs. The LaserJet printer line which they launched 1984 is actually the most successful product that HP every have made. Ironically, the print mechanisms in HP’s tremendously popular LaserJet line of laser printers depend almost entirely on Canon’s components (print engines), which in turn use technology developed by Xerox. HP develops the hardware, firmware, and software that convert data into dots for the mechanism to print.

    Today, HP is the undisputed global leader in the printer field in terms of the number of units sold within the printer market, offering inkjet printers, laser printers, scanners and dot matrix printers for every use from the home to commercial printing.

    Finding Epson Printer Cartridges is easy here at UK Ink Supplies. We currently have hundreds of different Epson Cartridges to offer you including both Epson branded and Jet Tec branded cartridges – the leading UK manufacture of compatible Epson ink cartridges.

    The History of Epson

    Seiko Epson Corporation (Epson) was founded in 1942 by Hisao Yamazaki, a local clock shop owner, in Japan and started as a producer of watch parts.

    When the Seiko Group was assigned the task to be the official time keeper for the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games, Epson was assigned to develop a printing timer. To date, they have become famous for pioneering the piezoelectric Inkjet Technology. Printers using this technology do not heat the ink when printing like other inkjet printers do.

    Today, Epson is one of the largest suppliers within the printer market, offering inkjet printers, laser printers, scanners and dot matrix printers for every use from the home to commercial printing.

    Interested in Epson Compatible Cartridges?

    Buying an original Epson cartridge is not cheap, with sets of cartridges costing upwards to £100.00. Fortunately, the market has been opening up in the last few years and there are now choices out there for those that want to buy an Epson compatible cartridge instead. These cartridges are manufactured to be 100% compatible with the Epson printer and to meet the standard set by Epson for their cartridges.

    Epson have always produced printers with a permanent printhead. This has historically made the Epson ink cartridges cheaper than many other printer makers, because of the simplicity of the ink tank. The reason for this is that the Epson cartridge only contained the printer ink and no or few electronics.

    Epson have in the last years introduced new printers to the market that use cartridges that contain a chip. The goal with this chip was to make it impossible for other ink manufacturers to create an Epson compatible cartridge. Luckily for Epson printer owners, other ink manufacturers such as Jet Tec have been able to create fully compatible cartridges that also include an Epson compatible chip.
