Have you recently transitioned to using a laser printer, and aren’t quite sure which toner cartridges are right for your printer? Perhaps you’ve recently bought a new model, and are unsure as to which cartridges to use?

  • Choose the Right Brand and Size of Cartridge 

  • The first step to choosing the right toner cartridges is to know your printer's brand, and the size of the cartridge that you need. You will be able to find the brand of your printer on the printer itself, or if you can’t find it then take a look in your users manual or handbook that came with your printer when you bought it. This will most likely be a brand such as HP, Brother, Lexmark or Canon for example. 

    You also need to find the size of the toner cartridge, which can usually be found on the printer, or in the users manual or handbook. It’s important to know the size of the toner cartridge that you need, as many brands will stock different size toner cartridges. Once you know these two key factors, you can find the toner that you need and move on.

  • Colour or Black Printing

  • The next considerations to make is whether you want to opt for colour, or black toner. If you mostly print in black and white, then choosing a black toner cartridge is the most sensible choice and it tends to be the cheaper option too. This is often the choice for many homes and family printers that just tend to print documents or paperwork.

    If you think that you might be doing a fair amount of colour printing, then make sure that you opt for colour toner. It tends to be a bit more expensive than black toner, but if you need to print in colour then its important to buy this type of toner. Colour toner is ideal if you plan on printing images, or documents where you need there to be full colour in the print. 

  • Page Yield

  • Another factor to consider is yield, which refers to the number of pages that can be printed with your chosen toner cartridge. Different cartridge models offer different page yields, and to get the best value for your money its important that you consider yield. 

    If you print a relatively small amount, for example printing documents occasionally at home, then you do not need a high yield cartridge. However, if you print a lot, for example for business purposes, it’s beneficial to opt for a higher page yield to offer you the most amount of pages possible and the best value for money.
