Printer Toner Refills and Kits for Epson
Printing from home or at the office is only as good as the ink you install in the printer. Over time, buying replacement ink cartridges can get expensive, and you might start looking for a cost-efficient alternative. If you are a do-it-yourselfer then consider printer toner refill kits. You don't have to be a whiz with technology; you just need to be willing to read the directions and follow them step by step.Need to know
To be sure that you get compatible printer ink you will need to know the make and model of the printer. One way to ensure that you get a proper replacement for your Epson printer is to look at the cartridge currently installed. On it, you will find a number such as 252 or 250XL, compare this with the number on the kit you plan to purchase to make sure the numbers match. Pigment shades may vary from one model to the next, which is why it's important to know the ink number you need. That being said, often the refill kit will be compatible with multiple ink numbers.Black or Colour
Most printers have the option to print in either black or colour. Therefore, you have the choice of purchasing a colour, colour and black or just black toner refills and kits. You don't need to purchase something that is unnecessary for your machine. If your printer only prints in black, there is no need to buy any other pigments. However, if you can and plan to print with colour ink, you will need a kit that includes cyan, magenta and yellow.How it Works
On the top of each cartridge, they are refill holes the manufacturer seals to keep the ink from spilling out. You need to pierce these holes before filling, and then you need to cover them up before using the cartridge. The process itself is not complicated, but if you aren't careful it can get messy so always protect the work space by laying down paper towels or newspaper before you start the job.
