Printer Toners

Ordering the correct toner cartridge for your printer is essential if you want to enhance the lifespan of your printer and print your documents at optimum quality. There is essentially one significant difference between ink cartridges and toner cartridges: Ink cartridges are made from liquid and toner cartridges are made from microscopic powder.

Printer toner is a very fine powder composed mainly of plastic polymer and coloring agents. Toner powder is electrostatically charged inside the printer and fused to the paper as it passes over a metal drum in the printer.  Each printer brand will have its own formulations but, in general, toner is composed of finely ground plastic, silica and various organic compounds like iron, chromium and zinc.

Black toner is typically used in laser printing. Color toner is available. 

The use of toner results in better print quality and much faster printing, making toner-based printers more suitable for business and commercial applications with high volumes. Plus, toner cartridges won’t dry out like ink cartridges. Though it may not seem like it initially, toner cartridges are more cost effective than ink cartridges in the long run.

Printer toner colors also use the CMYK system. When the primary colors of C, M or Y are combined, printers can create the whole spectrum of color. Mixing all three gives an imperfect black or a perfect grey. We recommend avoiding printers that use all-in-one tri-color toner cartridges; you waste ink when only one color runs out, but you must replace the whole cartridge.

Toner vs. Ink Longevity

Overall, toner lasts longer than ink. Because toner produces more images than ink before running out, you won’t need to replace the cartridges as frequently. Toner also lasts longer on the shelf, as opposed to ink, which can dry out quickly. However, both ink and toner will degrade over time. Luckily, there are several ways to maximize the longevity of both types of cartridges.

Toner vs. Ink Cost

There are several factors to consider when comparing the costs of toner and ink:

Thus, the type of printer that you own will determine what cartridges you need for printing.
