Typically, in terms of printing you end up with two types of cartridges. There are toner cartridges and ink cartridges. But the difference between the two of them isn’t always clear and obvious. The difference is quite simple and it comes down to the way that your printer prints. Laser printers use toner cartridges to fuse dry powder onto the page instead.

Whereas, inkjet printers use ink cartridges, which are designed to put liquid ink onto the page. Both have their pros and cons and both can create high-quality printouts. The question of which is best is really up to you but the team at Toner One have put together a few reasons why you might want to choose toner cartridges over ink cartridges.

Provides a Faster Print

Everyone’s experienced the seemingly endless wait for the printer. Even after you've sent your document to print, you can end up waiting for what seems like forever for the printer to finish your documents. Fortunately, toner cartridges and laser printers offer a much faster printing experience. 

The main reason for this is that laser printers are working with dry materials rather than liquid ones, so it's easier to print with rapid precision without risking any smudges. This means that you can have your document printed and you can be on your way in a matter of moments and you can rely on the high-quality results coming through time and time again.

You Get a Sharper picture

While there is still some debate about whether or not toner or ink cartridges are better, the fact that you won't have any smudges or bleeds from a toner cartridge is certainly a plus. This means you get a much sharper picture with clear and defined lines, something that is particularly important when you are printing a lot of pictures or diagrams. 

Of course, this is not so important when you are printing written documents and a photo grade inkjet printer can still offer you an incredibly high-quality picture. But if you like the ability to be able to print shop pictures and you don't want to spend as much money as you would on a photo grade inkjet printer, then you'll want to choose toner cartridges.

Tend to Last Longer

Most of our customers are interested in printers and cartridges that last as long as possible. Generally, the longer the time lasts the less you end up spending on new cartridges, which is why laser printers are usually more popular. Even though they generally cost more than inkjet cartridges, toner will last longer and easily put out a higher volume of pages. So if you're looking for cartridges that work on a budget, you want toner over Ink. 

Using them is Better for the Environment

Taking care of the environment is found in the little choices that we make, including the printer cartridges that we use. Toner cartridges are easily recycled, which means they are unlikely to end up in landfills. This combined with the fact that you won't need to replace the cartridges as often means that toner cartridges are definitely the more environmentally-friendly choice.
