Refilling printer cartridges - A booming industry
Over the past few years, refilling printer cartridges has become one of the fastest growing industries in the world. And when you look at the facts, it’s easy to understand why. Information technology has taken the world by a storm. Anyone and everyone in the advanced world has a computer for their business and their home. Computers need printers and printers need cartridges, which run out of ink or toner on a regular basis. With the development of digital photography comes a large increase in the usage of inkjet printers. Cartridge World is ideally positioned to refill the empty cartridges created by this demand. Recycling is also a hot issue and another huge growth industry. Here are two good reasons to recycle printer cartridges:
_ More than 1.25 gallons of oil is needed to make one new laser cartridge
_ Hundreds of millions of cartridges go into landfills each year
CUSTOMERS WANT THIS INDUSTRY
First of all, they save money. By refilling and recycling their cartridges instead of buying new ones, people can save up to 50% on the cost of a new cartridge. And with replacement cartridges costing up to €400,00 that’s no small change! Secondly, because recycling cartridges is environmentally friendly, people feel good about preserving the environment.
WHAT EXACTLY IS CARTRIDGE WORLD ALL ABOUT?
Our core business is refilling empty printer cartridges. It’s that simple. When possible, we refill the customer’s cartridge while they wait. Most cartridges can be refilled whether they are inkjet or laser, photocopier or fax, large or small, black or color. We also offer other services:
_ New ink and laser cartridges (because nothing lasts forever)
_ Specialty papers for quality photographic prints
_ Copier toners
_ Fax supplies
_ 100% guarantee
_ Expert advice.
In other words, we’re a true one-stop-shop for printer requirements.
OUR CUSTOMER BASE IS GROWING
Market research shows that more than 70% of people currently throw away their used cartridges and buy new ones. Imagine what this means in terms of the growth potential of our industry as more and more people realize they can have their cartridges refilled AND save around 50% on the cost of a new one.
