Shopping for toner cartridges is an essential part of keeping your printer moving. But finding a reliable source for your toner and the correct cartridges themselves can be harder than you might think. Not every shop will stock your particular type of toner and purchasing straight from the manufacturer can be surprisingly expensive and often quite impossible. Finding a toner cartridge can seem like an impossible task, let alone knowing what type of toner to choose.

That is what we want to combat at Toner One. We’re here to be your one-stop-shop for all of your toner cartridges. We stock cartridges from all sorts of different brands and manufacturers, ensuring that everyone can easily find the right toner for your printer. If you’re still wondering how you can determine the right toner cartridges, then we can help. Making sure that you have the right toner is important to keep your printer running at its best for many years to come. 

Below are a few things to consider when you’re choosing your toner cartridges.

How Much of a Page Yield Do You Need?

It is so important to consider how much you’re going to be using your printer which will ultimately use a lot of paper. This is important to consider because some toners produce fewer pages, which is why you need to choose the right toner, particularly if you’re going to print in vast quantities. While some toners might seem to be cheaper, you can’t print as many pages with them. In the end, many of the more expensive toner cartridges will be cheaper per page. 

Not only is knowing this a really useful way to choose the right toner cartridges but it is also useful if you plan on putting your cartridges on repeat order. Being able to order new cartridges before your old ones run out is a great way to ensure that you are always able to print your documents when you need them.

What is the Difference Between Toner and Ink?

The last thing that you should be doing is putting ink in your laser printer. In general discussion, the words toner and ink cartridges are used interchangeably but the reality is that they are quite different. While the ink is a liquid that is sprayed onto the page, toner uses fast-drying plastic powders. There are many debates as to which is better but the important thing you should know is you cannot use ink in a laser printer nor can you use a toner in an inkjet printer. So you must double-check which type of cartridge you need before you make your purchase. 

What Documents do you Typically Print?

What are you planning on your printing? Do you print mainly pictures or mainly written documents? Will that have a high volume of black toner or do you use a variety of different colours? Knowing the answer to questions like these will make a surprising amount of difference because you will be able to determine which cartridges will work best for your printing needs. 

If you used mainly black ink, then you will want to spend more money on that particular cartridge than the other, lesser-used cartridges. On the other side of the coin, if colour is important to you, then you'll want to invest in high-quality toners across the board.
