A bargain price may not always be a bargain, especially when it comes to purchasing printers. Buying an inexpensive printer may be viable for an individual who prints documents occasionally, but it is not a good choice for most folks. For the small to medium-sized businesses, schools, and churches it takes a high quality printer to cover all printing needs. That is why I encourage our customers to visit our store for a free, total cost of operation analysis. We listen to your needs and tell you what each printer will cost to operate for a year.
We have saved customers thousands of dollars a year by helping them find the ones that print most efficiently. Of course, the biggest printing expense is the ink or toner itself. In most cases, I avoid using expensive name-brand ink and toner in favor of remanufactured cartridges that we can sell at a 30 to 50 percent discount.
“ We enjoy the personal approach. We offer competitive pricing and knowledge that other companies don’t have, we like to be a consulting service for our customers instead of just trying to sell them printers.”
Remanufactured products use empty cartridges as a base. The cartridges are cleaned, renovated, reassembled and refilled with the appropriate ink or toner. Furthermore, every refurbished laser cartridge prevents more than two-and-a-half pounds of solid waste from entering landfills. That is an impressive statistic considering that millions of empty cartridges end up in landfills annually.
However, I soon discovered that not all remanufactured cartridges on the market are reliable. I was growing frustrated with the need to frequently change the expensive ink cartridges in my personal home printer. With research, I identified the best manufacturers and began purchasing cartridges for friends and myself. Avocation turned into vocation in 2010, when I left my construction job to open Think Ink.
Ink and toner cartridges that are refurbished or OEM are still Think Ink’s bread and butter. We also sell a full line of printers, copiers and fax machines. All our remanufactured supplies are guaranteed to be 100% compatible with their printers. In fact we offer a lifetime replacement warranty against defects in all our remanufactured toner cartridges.
Think Ink provides service on most laser printers, including routine maintenance, changing parts, and evaluating a broken printer to determine if it is more cost-effective to fix it or purchase a new one. Discounts are extended to schools, churches, and government agencies. All customers receive free delivery on ink and toner orders over $75.
Once a mostly mail-order enterprise, Think Ink’s storefront in Mt. Hope now welcomes customers to visit in person. We enjoy the personal approach. “We offer competitive pricing and knowledge that other companies don’t have, we like to be a consulting service for our customers instead of just trying to sell them printers.” Let us help you make the best choices on your next printer or ink and toner purchase.
