When it comes to printing and copying in the office, having a reliable supply of toner is absolutely essential. Whether you’re using inkjet printers or copiers, the toner is the most important component for creating prints and documents that are high quality and sharp. Unfortunately, many businesses and organizations don’t properly consider their toner needs when buying printing and copying equipment, and end up stocking up on the wrong type or running out right when the need is highest. Thankfully, DEC Office Solutions Inc. has you covered.
The purpose of toner is to transfer the text and images to be printed or copied onto paper. It does this by applying an electrostatically charged pigment or polymer to the paper, which then bonds with it and creates the images or text. The specifics of how toner is applied for printing or copying will depend on the type of equipment you have — laser, inkjet, or copier — but for all of these machines, toner is critical for producing quality results.
Compatible toner is a popular choice for those who need to save money on their office printing and copying needs. It’s chemically and physically identical to the original toner from the manufacturer, but it is simply provided by a different company. This type of toner is often more affordable, as it’s not made by the same company, but is still approved and safe to use in the same type of machine as the original toner. That said, keep in mind that just because a company claims to be offering compatible toner doesn’t mean it is of the highest quality, so it’s still a good idea to check reviews and other customer feedback before making a purchase.
Premium toner is another option for those seeking the highest quality output. This type of toner includes additional features that make it more reliable and consistent in its performance. It’s also designed to last longer than compatible toner, meaning you won’t have to worry about running out as quickly. Additionally, depending on the specific brand, you may also be able to get more prints out of a single cartridge of premium toner than you could with the generic toner.
No matter what type of toner you purchase, though, one of the most important things to consider is the maintenance and replacement schedule. This will vary, depending on the type of printer or copier you have and the type of toner you’re using, but in general, you should plan to replace the toner every 6-12 months (or when it’s nearly empty). Keeping your supplies well stocked and replacing the toner on a regular basis can help keep your machines up and running, so you can continue getting the best results from your printing and copying needs.
