A compatible cartridge is manufactured from new materials in Jet Tec’s Lincolnshire factory. The outer casing is moulded and the inside components are added. Chips are added where necessary and then filled with the relevant ink colour.

A remanufactured cartridge is collected through Jet Tec’s recycling scheme for re-use. Only the best quality cartridges are chosen to be remanufactured. They are firstly cleaned thoroughly with Jet Tec’s own developed cleaning solution to remove any dried ink and contaminants. They are then refilled and all printer cartridges are 100% tested before leaving the Boston, Lincolnshire factory.

Why should I buy Jet Tec ink cartridges over original manufacturer inks?

There are a number of reasons; the main reasons are Quality, Reliability, Extra Life and Price and free UK delivery.

I’ve heard that compatibles or remanufactured ink cartridges may block my ink jets?

This may be the case with some of Jet Tec’s competitors. This is mainly down to the fact that air gets inside the ink cartridge at the manufacturing stage. Jet Tec undertake a unique process to avoid this, resulting in a very low return rate of less than 0.3%.

Can compatible consumables damage my printer?

No. Jet Tec cartridges are designed to fit your printer. Unless a cartridge is forced or installed incorrectly, you should have no problems with any Jet Tec printer cartridges.

Will Jet Tec compatible products invalidate my printer guarantee?

Your manufacturer’s guarantee may be void, please check the documentation that came with it. However, Jet Tec are so confident about their product that they offer a full 100% 2 year guarantee on their products and your printer is covered if it is damaged by Jet Tec inkjets.

Will the colours be as bright as the original manufacturer ink cartridges?

The simple answer is YES! Jet Tec have 25 years experience and have perfected their ink cartridges to give rich, vibrant long lasting prints. (however, the setting you use for your printer and the correct paper will make a huge difference to your print)

What is extralife?

Jet Tec’s extralife? technology has been developed to offer up to 100% more printed pages than the OEM equivalent, offering excellent value for money and a double saving for you.

Do you guarantee your products?

All of our ink cartridges and toners are 100% guaranteed for 2 years from date of manufacture, 3 years for toners.

Where are Jet Tec ink cartridges and toners made?

All of our ink cartridges and toners are made and manufactured in our UK factory in Lincolnshire. Employing over 300 people in the UK, resulting in wages going back in the UK economy.

What are you doing to help the environment?

What if I have a problem?

The first place to visit is Jet Tec’s support website www.inksupport.info If you cannot find the solution for you, contact where you purchased your product or feel free to contact Jet Tec direct.

Why use Jet Tec Ink Cartridges?

Digital photography is becoming more and more popular with the availability of digital cameras. However, the amount of photos actually printed is decreasing. Jet Tec ink cartridges offers you the chance to start printing those special memories again without breaking the bank.

Jet Tec’s awarding winning Extra Life technology offers excellent value for money and in most cases between 20% to 100% more pages than OEM’s (Original Equipment Manufacturer).

Top Ten Tips To Make Your Ink Cartridges Last Longer

Posted in Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), UK Ink Supplies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 22/05/2012 by ukinksupplies

When you buy a printer, the initial price paid represents only a portion of the cost. You must consider both the price you pay for the printer itself as well as the expense of buying ink cartridges when the printer’s ink runs out. If you run a business that needs a lot of printing or if you print a lot of photos, you may need to frequently replace your ink cartridges. These extra costs can quickly build up, but fortunately, there are ways you can save money by making your printer cartridges last a little longer.

1. Print only what you need
Before you start printing text or graphics, decide its relevance and usefulness so that you don’t needlessly spend time printing things that may not be of much use. That is, you should only print the things that you may actually need in order to save consumption of considerable amounts of printer ink.

If there is information you can back up on a disk instead of printing a hard copy, then use CD-ROMs or DVDs to back up your files. Emails and reports should be printed only as you need them, not just for the sake of printing them. Avoid printing “just for fun” stuff (funnies).

2. Use the Print Preview
Print Preview is a useful function that shows you how the document will look after it has been printed. It can help you adjust spaces and decide which pages to print. Consider turning off the colour ink cartridges, selecting only the text you require and only the pages you need – especially that last page with the footer that comes out with each print job. This can significantly reduce your printer ink usage as well as your paper usage.

3. Print text over graphics
If you are printing documents only for later reference, print only the essential text and any related images or graphics that are required. Avoid printing images or colourful graphics if having a hard copy is not essential to the purpose of the document.

4. Print in Draft mode as often as possible
Use draft print quality whenever you can. Go to File – Print to open the box that lists the settings for your printer. Click ‘Properties’ to bring up the various options available. You’ll probably find different choices under the heading ‘Paper/Quality’ that allow you to select draft quality printing. Your document will print at a lower resolution but that may not matter for reference material that you will likely discard later. You can always switch to a higher resolution for a final version of a document.

5. Print text in black ink only
Print documents that are in black and white with a black ink cartridge. Choose black and white printing over colour whenever possible. Depending on your printer, you may have the option to select grey-scale printing using the black ink cartridge only. If you print black with a colour ink cartridge, various colours are mixed to create the black ink. This depletes your colour ink cartridge a lot faster than it would deplete a black ink cartridge. If you’re not doing presentation quality work, or if you’re printing text only, chances are you won’t need the other colours.

6. Use colour ink only when needed
If you want your refilled ink to run longer, then make use of colour printing only when it is required. Otherwise, for general and regular use, it is wiser to use black and white printing that helps in saving your money on buying additional refills.

Modern personal printers can produce high quality photographs, particularly if you use speciality photo paper. But printing high quality digital shots can use a lot of ink, so if you print a large number of photos you might want to outsource your photo printing to a local print centre. Many services allow you to order your prints online. You can also have your photos printed on calendars, mouse pads or greeting cards if you wish.

7. Keep your printer nozzles clean
Perhaps the easiest change you can make to your printing habits is to keep an eye on your printer heads. The printer ink nozzles that dispense the actual ink use a spray function to get the ink onto the paper. As such, these nozzles can experience a build-up of dried ink and become clogged. Clean the nozzle heads every few weeks or more often if you’re a heavy printer.

If a colour cartridge isn’t printing all the colours, remove the cartridge and wipe the bottom of it where the ink comes out firmly with a damp paper towel or lint-free cloth to unclog the nozzle. This will help the ink flow more freely from the cartridge.

8. Use all the ink in the cartridge
Continue to print even when your printer light comes on or you get a warning saying that your ink is low. Check the ink level in the cartridge and if it appears that there is some ink left, keep using it instead of changing the cartridge immediately. There is likely quite a bit of ink left in the cartridge; remember that the ink comes out in a spray so it doesn’t take much per page. Use it all and then shake the ink cartridge to break up any ink clogs (especially in humid climates). You may get hundreds of extra pages out of a cartridge by doing this. Keep printing until the ink is almost completely gone (but be careful that you don’t run the printer with an empty cartridge). Also, use Jet Tec ink cartridges, many of which come with up to as much as 100% Extra Life.

9. Select “Printer-Friendly” Pages when printing from the Web
You would be surprised how much ink is wasted by printing pages directly as they appear from a website. One web page can have multiple pictures or graphics…not to mention several pages worth of printing because web pages are typically much longer than a regular document. Opt for the printer-friendly option if you need to print something from the web. This eliminates all the unnecessary images, and will save your ink cartridges as well as your printing paper.

10. Use the printer regularly
If you don’t print very often, you can stretch the life of your inkjet cartridges by keeping the printer moving. Print a page or two at least once a week using both your colour and black ink cartridges. You can print something small (even a printer diagnostic test) to prevent the ink from drying up.

Another ink-saving tip is to power down your printer the right way after each use. Don’t merely switch it off or unplug it, but allow your printer to power down slowly and shut itself down. The print heads need to be in the right position while the printer is turned off to prevent the ink from drying up prematurely. The printer should also be covered when not in use.

Inkjet Printers And Laser Printers – UK Ink Supplies

In computing terms, a printer is a device (usually peripheral) that produces a hard copy of documents stored in electronic form, usually on print media such as paper, card or transparencies.

Many printers are primarily used as computer peripherals, and are permanently connected by a printer cable to a computer which serves as a document source. In most newer printers, a USB cable connects to a computer which serves as the document source. Other printers, commonly known as network printers, have built-in network interfaces and can serve as a hardcopy device for any user connected to the network.

In addition, many modern printers can directly interface to electronic media such as memory sticks or memory cards, or to image capture devices such as digital cameras, and scanners; some printers are integrated with a scanning and/or fax machine function – these printers are generally known as “multi-functional” or “all-in-one” printers.

Printers are designed for short-turnaround print jobs; requiring all-but no setup time to achieve a quality hard copy print of a required document.

The two main types of printers commonly found in the home and business are inkjet and laser toner printers.

A laser printer rapidly produces high quality text and graphics by employing a xerographic printing process by producing an image by the direct scanning of a laser beam across the printer’s photoreceptor. In contrast, an inkjet printer operates by propelling variably-sized droplets of liquid or molten material (ink) onto almost any sized page. They are the most common type of computer printer used by consumers.

In contrast, the printing press is designed and optimised for high-volume print jobs such as newspaper print runs: printing presses are capable of hundreds of pages per minute or more, and have an incremental cost-per-page which is a fraction of that of printers.

The printing press remains the machine of choice for high-volume, professional publishing. Although, as printers have improved in quality and performance, many jobs which used to be done by professional print shops are now done by users on local printers.

However, as printer technology has improved in quality and performance, many jobs which used to be done by professional print shops can now be readily done by users on local printers.
