Portland, OR, May 11 2012 : Printer Ink Cartridges are something that no business and nearly no home can be without; but, where should you go to buy them?
For starters, you can check out your local general stores, such as an all purpose store or the grocery store. This is a convenient option, as you can grab your cartridges while you are shopping for your weekly groceries; however, prices on the specialty items in a general store will be well above retail, as this is one of the ways that grocery stores make their money. Also, you may get stuck having to buy name brand with no generic choices.
There are also specialized stores locally that you can try, as well, such as office supply stores. Owners of these kinds of places are generally very knowledgeable about things such as this, and will be able to put you in the right direction to purchase the right printer ink cartridges that you are looking for. He or she will probably suggest cartridges by generic manufacturers or even a do it yourself refill kit.
Finally, you can also choose to purchase your printer ink cartridges online. There are several sites that sell these online, and many of these specialize in cartridges only. Some of them specialize only in refilled cartridges; however, this is a good thing, as it saves you a lot of money over the manufacturer brands. Generic brands are just as good as the manufacturer's; however it is still a good idea to research which generic brands are the best.
When you buy cartridges online, you may find that there are shipping costs involved so figure that into the cost of the cartridge as you are doing your research for the best deals. Usually, shipping costs will not be that high and sometimes they are even free when your total order is over a certain limit. Because online shopping has become so competitive, online store owners have recognized this and have made their products much easier to purchase by utilizing easy to understand webpages, and by making the purchasing process more secure. Most online stores also offer twenty four hour support and a frequently asked questions section for any of your concerns. With the proper research, you can find the right online store that will service all of your needs, from printer repair to replacement cartridges.
So, where should you shop? The answer lies with you and how well you know your printer. If you know that your printer is touchy, then stick with manufacturer brands. If not, then try the refillable cartridges. Shops in your local area are great, because you are able to speak one on one with customer service. Online shops will, however, always be cheaper and more secure, especially if they have great support after the sale. Where you shop for your ink cartridges is ultimately up to you, but you will be able to find what you need regardless of where you shop. Simply do some research and you will be able to find the right shop for you and your laser toner cartridges needs.
