Can You Really Afford To Run Your Desktop Inkjet Printers?

Recent surveys have indicated that the cost of fuelling the inkjet printer that sits in the corner of your office is far greater than the cost of fuelling an airliner!  At an average cost of over £3,500 per gallon, inkjet ink ranks amongst one of the highest value liquid commodities in modern society!  The ink supplied in inkjet cartridges is more expensive than aviation fuel, the finest perfumes, vintage champagne or even blood!

An average B&W A4 page produced by an inkjet printer costs
range between £0.14 - £0.23 per print!*

An average COLOUR A4 page produced by an inkjet printer costs
range between £0.26 - £0.74 per print!*

These costs reflect the ink consumption only and do not take account of the cost of the printer or of any ongoing repairs/maintenance costs.

Professional office copiers/printers maintenance contracts start from as little as £0.004 per A4 print - and yes, that does include the toner (Black & White and Colour), all consumables, service and maintenance.
