When it comes to buying OfficeJet Pro ink, you would be forgiven for believing that there was only one type to choose from! However, we are here to take you through all you ink options so that you can buy with confidence and feel fully informed. Take a look through the information below and work out which type of printer ink will suit you the best.
Standard Genuine Ink
This type of ink is the most commonly purchased ink across the world and is the type of ink manufactured by the printer companies. The reason this ink is so popular is that consumers are led to believe that it is the best option for them through complex advertising campaigns that teach us to believe that genuine ink is the only viable option.
The reality is much murkier! Printer companies often underfill their standard cartridges and charge exorbitant amounts to consumers. In reality, this ink is not any better than any other ink specialist’s product, but because they have massive marketing budgets, they can pay for advertising that teaches us that they are the only companies that can be trusted. We’d advise that you avoid this type of ink if you are looking for the best!
XL Genuine Inks
These XL cartridges are supped up versions of the genuine standard cartridges discussed above, and many of the issues surrounding genuine ink is also an issue with these cartridges so we would recommend that you take time to consider what is really on offer.
Interestingly, with XL cartridges, you will find that the casing is the same size as the standard cartridges on sale. This means that all printer companies have done is filled their half-full standard cartridges with slightly more ink. In fact, some printer companies offer XXL versions which are just completely full standard cartridges. Rather than seeing the con that is happening, many consumers believe that the XL versions are a great deal; sadly, they are not!
Our final option is replacement ink. This type of ink has long been seen as a poor choice for consumers due to claims of low-quality and messy cartridges. However, there has been a rise in companies like Smart Ink who offer a high-quality, specialise service that allows consumers to buy new ink. HP printer ink and Canon printer ink are the main types you can get from this company as they work to transform the view of replacement ink.
In reality, as long as you take the time to check out the validity of your ink supplier, you can be far more confident that replacement ink is now a more dependable option. It will save you significant amounts of money and be delivered to your door, saving you time and hassle.
So, the next time you need to purchase your HP 6960 ink, take some time to work out what type of ink will work best for you, your wallet and your printer. By being more switched on to your options, we are sure that you will spend less and enjoy better ink at better prices. Happy printing!
