Get to Know the Types of Toner Cartridges

Printers are offered in different models like the monochrome, multifunction and photo printing machines, which is why you should not be that surprised to find out that there are also various types of toner cartridges.

Before actually talking about the kinds of laser toners, you must know first that a laser toner cartridge is the printer supply used for laser printers. It is filled with toner powder that is transferred on the paper through the drum cartridge to create your prints. This printer supply has different colors like black, cyan, magenta, and yellow which combine to create other tones for printing.

Now, there are three types of laser toner cartridges. These are the OEMs, compatible, and remanufactured. For you to really understand these printer supplies and what would suit your needs, let's discuss each type.

OEM is actually short for “original equipment manufacturer,” which has the brand name of its maker. Basically, this type of cartridge is made by the printer companies like HP, Epson, Canon, and Lexmark. An OEM can be more expensive than the other types since its manufacturers want to maintain the high quality printing that they have always offered.

The compatible laser toner cartridge is a generic type made by a third party printer supply store that wishes to offer affordable printing. This can be considered a brand new toner cartridge at a cheaper price. It can either meet or exceed the printing quality of an OEM depending on how its manufacturer produced it.

For the budget savers and printer users who want to help nature as well, the remanufactured toner cartridge could be the best choice. These are made from recycled cartridges that have been inspected, cleaned, refilled, and tested to maintain high quality printing. Among the three types, this is the most affordable since the manufacturing process is simple and eco-friendly as well. The savings can range from 50-70%, depending on the store of course.

Check on your printing needs to determine which toner cartridge will really suit you, and also think about how much you’ll save if you go for a printer cartridge that can offer both affordability and high quality printing.
