Customers like to buy ink and toner from Office1 because our prices are the lowest, our service is the friendliest, and delivery is next day. But what exactly is the difference between toner and ink, or are they the same?
There really is a difference. Toner is a powder that is used in laser printers and photocopiers, which use electricity rather than chemicals to transfer an image to the paper. The machine’s fuser uses heat to melt the toner and bind it to the paper.
Printer ink is a liquid contained in ink cartridges, which are replaceable components of the printer. As the paper passes under the ink supply, a minute dot of ink is precisely positioned on the paper. The dots can even be combined when printing photographs.
So now that you know the difference between toner and ink, your next question is probably, “Why are they so expensive?”
Part of the answer is that the cartridges often contain sophisticated electronic components and chips that communicate with the printer. If these components were on the printer itself, they would eventually wear out. Since they are on the cartridges, you are actually installing new components each time you replace the ink or toner.
The rest of the answer is that manufacturers intentionally sell the printers for less than cost so they can make money every time you need to replace your printer cartridges. Since none of the cartridges is interchangeable with other models, the manufacturers have a loyal customer for the life of the printer – whether you like it or not.
