Printing Consumables

Decades of innovations and improvements have made printing faster, more reliable, and more efficient than ever. These innovations and improvements also include printing consumables. A toner cartridge might not look like much from the outside, but inside it is packed with amazing technology, including photoconductive drums, anti-fraud technology, and print gauge systems that intelligently predict cartridge life.

Unfortunately, many organizations are tempted to undermine their own success by swapping out authentic printing supplies, such as toner cartridges, for less expensive new-build compatible (NBC) cartridges, or clones.

Third party research has shown that original OEM toner cartridges outperformed non-OEM cartridges for reliability, print quality, production (page counts), service costs, environmental impact and indoor air quality standards.

In addition, many OEMs offer environmentally sound choices for disposal of our end-of-life products and supplies. ​
