Prairie Laser Ink and Toner  Printer and Cartridges tips 


Printers and cartridges can really range in price.  So how can you tell if you are getting a good deal? Let the experts explain in this article: There are a few things to look for.



1.    Cost of the printer – If the printer is under $100, it is almost a guarantee your ink cartridges will be pricey.  Lots of printer companies put out cheap printers at a loss only to recoup their losses “hand over fist” with their expensive inkjet cartridges.




2.    Cost of the ink – Most printers have their ink or toner number on the outside of the box. Research the price of the cartridge(s) and how many pages’ maximum it is rated for.  Keep in mind page rating are based on a maximum yield, not on an average yield.  Look for a printer that has a reliable generic cartridge to reduce your cost of printing.




3.    Tri-color VS Tank cartridges – There are two main designs of inkjet printers.  One has all colors locked into one cartridge, the other has each color separate.  Traditionally, the individual tanks with each color separated tend to be more affordable and produce a better quality print.


There are many factors that go into choosing the right printer. Contact the experts at Prairie Laser if you need help selecting your new printer!

Choosing A Printer?

Have you ever walked into an electronic/office supply store to be greeted by aisles and aisles of printers?  Most people have.  How can you identify the good quality from the poor quality, and how can you locate the most economical printer?  

Follow these steps to make your shopping trip easier.

1.  Identify the main purpose for your printer.  Paperwork or high-quality color printing?  
If it is paperwork, you could go for a laserjet printer (either monochrome or color).  If you are wanting to do some color or photos, a high-quality color inkjet is for you.

2. Do require color printing?  If you don't need color, definitely look at a monochrome laserjet printer.  You can select features such as scanning, copying, and faxing within the laserjet family.

3.  What is the cost per page?  
To find this, you take the cost of the cartridges and divide them by their approximate page rating.  This will give you a rough idea of what printer has an economical cartridge versus one that is not economical.  Typically we say under $0.04 per print is economic for monochrome, and under $0.15 for color prints is economic (add both the black and color cartridges together and divide by the total page rating).  Look at our Fuzion ink and toner cartridges to save money on your ink supplies.

4.  Choose your extra functions!
Select the functions and features you want for your printer.  Some models are wireless, others are not.  Do you want it to work with a phone or tablet?  Make sure it is Airprint ready.  Do you want it to double side automatically?  Look for duplexing.  Keep in mind, certain features cost more than others, so keep those features in mind when you look at the price of the printer.

5.  You get what you pay for.
Have you ever seen those smoking deals for printers at $49.95 at a department store?  Buyer beware!  These printers are often "cash cows" where the ink cartridges cost more than DOUBLE the cost of the printer.  In addition, the ink that comes with any printer is only a sample.  This means the starter cartridges are only 20% or so full.  Don't be fooled by the cheap price tag, you may end up paying $80.00 to print only 200 pages... ($0.40 per page.  WAY too much!).

Prairies Laser Inc's Trusted story is a personal one for the Trusted Saskatoon team! Our quest to find a more cost effective supplier of ink and toner occurred over a year ago. We had  purchased a new brand named copier for our office. The copier was on sale and we were thrilled with he price. We thought we had such a top notch copier, however, it didn’t take long for us to realize why these copiers were so well priced.  We discovered when we went to replace our first toner cartridges that they were $110 each!  It was after our 3rd replacement that we began to looking at pricing online, seeking a better deal.  The typical big box stores who carry the brand cartridges were all around the same price, so little or no savings there. Then we stumbled upon Prairie Laser Ink and Toner in one of our searches. We were pleased to find that we could save 10% off any price quoted, plus this included delivery to our door!  

After our second order, Maya, the general manager suggested we might want to try a generic brand, which would take the cost even further down to $60.00 a cartridge (including delivery) Following her suggestion we purchased the generic brand and we have found there is no difference in the colour quality at all. A big thank you goes out to Maya and Anton for their superior service and after this we approached them to be part of TrustedSaskatoon.com as they embody EXACTLY the kind of company we promote!  They passed our verification process with flying colours and we know they are going to be great hit with Saskatoon!
