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.

    The History of Lexmark

    Lexmark’s history is not as long as some of the other big printer brands. Lexmark originated as a spin-off from IBM’s print division in 1991. Lexmark first produced inkjet printers in 1992 – the year the first printers were branded as just Lexmark, rather than being co-branded with IBM.

    Compared to their largest competitors, Lexmark is completely focused on manufacturing printers and printer accessories with most of the products falling into the inkjet, matrix printer and laser printers field.

    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.

    Hewlett Packard (HP) Ink Cartridges – UK Ink Supplies

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

    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.

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

    The History of Dell

    Michael Dell founded his company 1984 in a student room in Austin, with a startup capital of a mere 00. The concept was to eliminate the middle man and sell computers directly to customers. That way they could sell at lower prices, and by offering complete systems, the customer would not have to assemble the computer themselves. While Dell wasn’t first with this idea, they were one of the first to succeed with it financially. By the 1990s, Dell had become one of the largest computer companies, and had expanded overseas.

    After the year 2000, the company expanded into other markets, such as television, projectors, digital audio players and printers. In recognition of this, the company changed its name from “Dell Computer Corporation” to just “Dell Inc.” in 2003. That same year, the company entered the printer market, after a deal with Lexmark. Lexmark would then manufacture the printers to be sold under the Dell brand name.

    The printers sold by Dell include laser printers and all-in-one inkjet printers that combine printing, scanning and faxing.

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

    The History of Canon

    Canon is a Japanese multinational corporation that specialises in the manufacture of imaging and optical products, including cameras, photocopiers, steppers and computer printers.

    Canon started out as an Optical Instruments Laboratory in 1937 out of an office in Tokyo, Japan. The aim of the founders (Goro Yoshida and Saburo Uchida) was to manufacture cameras and take up competition with the existing German manufactures. One of their first produced cameras was called Kwanon, this name was later re-used when the company looked for a more modern and better fitting international name, hence the name Canon.

    Canon entered the printer field in 1975 when they successfully developed a laser beam printer. One of the most famous inventions of Canon is the discovery of the Bubble Jet technology. This is one of two used technologies within the inkjet printing field with Epson’s piezoelectric technology being the other one. The Bubble Jet works by using heat which produce pressure that ejects ink on to the paper media.

    Today, Canon 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.

    The Canon printer product line of today includes the Canon BJ, Canon BJC, Canon I, Canon Pixma and Canon S series.
