How to save on laser printer toner

Laser Printer TonerEveryday I take my toner cartridge out of the printer and shake it and put it back in just to get it to print good.

My neighbor tells me that is called dusting the cartridge. Effective as it may seem the inevitable will come sooner than later.
I will break down and eventually pay to have my cartridge replaced.

I often counsel to my children about recycling and the effects of not recycling it will have on their environment.
Like it matters to a 10 year old and a 12 year old. But just telling them often is all I can do for now.

It wasn’t until a couple of years ago I discovered that there were companies out there on the Internet that would
recycle laser toner cartridges. So I decided to give it a try. What was I thinking? Who do you pick, there are
so many of them with fluctuating prices from the dirt cheap to the extra expensive. I have even seen ads claiming
that refilled toner cartridges can damage your machine.

As luck would have it I came across a company called Laser Cartridge Plus. After reviewing their website I still
wasn’t convinced, so I gave them a call on their 1-800 number to listen to their spill. They were polite and informative
as well as they assured me their 15 years in business had earned them several awards as well as they were dedicated
to recycling so I decided to give them a try. It was fairly simple to place the order over the web and they shipped me
the Laser Printer Toner for free with UPS. Within 2 days I had my cartridge and put it in the printer to see how it would
print. Within minutes I was up and printing and I could not see any visible difference.

For what is worth here are some suggestions that I have listed:

1. Be selective when you shop, my mummy always said you get what you pay for.

2. Free shipping is always a plus even if you have to buy a spare to meet the minimum order for free shipping.

3. Do they offer new customer discounts or specials that would apply to you?

4. Shake those laser printer cartridges until they are dry.

5. Buy from a reputable company, even if you have to do a little research on them.

Most of all make sure the shopping experience was enjoyable and print on!
