Why Cartridge Network vs the cheap products sold elsewhere online and via Amazon?
We deal with cartridges and users daily. We know where and how to assist people and businesses.
As a store, we have some the most competitive pricing and largest in-stock selection in our area.
Our on-line pricing is competitive with like quality levels.
We offer multiple levels of product quality selections.
The cartridges listed on Amazon and elsewhere are usually the cheapest (low quality levels) sold by Chinese sales departments of provincial government supported factories “dumping” inferior products. Routinely, people come in to the store with cheap products purchased on-line and complain about it. We end up recycling the cartridges for them and then better meeting their needs.
Are your cartridges original or remanufactured?
We sell original (OEM), factory new compatible and factory remanufactured cartridges. Factory compatibles and factory remanufactured cartridges are clearly labeled.
What does "remanufactured" mean?
A remanufactured cartridge is a used cartridge (single use empty OEM), which has been factory cleaned, and as applicable certain components replaced with new parts, and filled with ink or toner as applicable which is the specific formulation for the specific cartridge and a new replacement chip attached as applicable, so that it can be used again.
Remanufactured ink and laser cartridges are a lower cost alternative to originals, and can provide substantive savings.
Will your cartridges void my printer's warranty?
Aftermarket cartridges do not void your printer’s warranty. A US federal law, the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act, protects your right to use any of the cartridges without their voiding your printer's warranty, that governs all warrantied merchandise and goods sold in the USA.
