Refilling Printer Ink Cartridges

July 19, 2006

Refilling your ink cartridges at home.Save money by refilling your own printer cartridges. I found that refilling ink cartridges is very simple and will save a ton of money! I ordered a refill kit from and it came with everything to do the job. The kit cost $12, and was good for 4 refills. I didn't spill a drop, and customer service is excellent with the company.

I know that refilling your own cartridges is cheaper, but doing so may void your warranty. Check your warranty to make sure you aren't going to end having to buy a new machine if the ink does any damage. If you pay for service on your printers (e.g. a company machine) then you may be voiding the service contract as well. Too many of the refill systems end up damging the machiens and printheads, so lots of companies now will include coverage for this kind of damage in their warranty.

Buying a new ink cartridge is expensive, especially if you have a lot to print or you're printing out photos. Recently I've noticed that I can't even print out 100 black and white pages before I need to change my ink cartridge.


Fortunately, I can buy the ink I need to refill my own ink cartridges.

Refilling is really a money saver, I have been doing this for over 6 years. The key is buying the ink that is designed for the manufacturer's tanks/cartridges.

If you can get the refills or the bulk ink then you can refill it because hp does they just have the plugs but my friend does and puts a small screw in the hole so it won't leak. It used to come in bottles in Staples but Dell wouldn't let them sell their ink until they removed the refills.

If you have an Office Max near you they refill HP cartridges for $10 after a one time fee. I tried doing it myself once and wound up having to buy a new printer.
