Fact: Ink cartridges are expensive
If you’ve ever owned a printer, you know the worst part is shelling out money for expensive ink replacements way more often than you want. And what about when you run out of ink mid-print and have to run to the store or stop what you’re doing and wait for the ink to ship to your home? It’s a pain.
Ink cartridges are so expensive that a crazy phenomenon began a few years ago. Some people will actually throw away their printer when it runs out of ink instead of buying expensive cartridges. Then, they run out and buy a new printer that comes with precious ink.
It sounds insane but if you do the math it’s not all that far fetched. An inexpensive printer’s pricepoint is in the same ballpark as replacing all those ink cartridges. There has to be a better way, right? Thankfully, there is.
With the Epson EcoTank, kiss expensive ink cartridges goodbye. This printer has super-sized, easy-to-fill ink tanks and comes with a ridiculous amount of ink — enough to print thousands of pages right out of the box. Replacement ink sets include enough ink to print up to 7,500 black and white pages or 6,000 color pages. For the average person, that’s two years of printing!
If you don’t print very often, you’ll have even more time between refills. Don’t worry, the ink won’t dry up.
If you have kids at home, a printer is a no-brainer. Go ahead and print all of your work reports, task lists and your kids’ homework assignments — in color, too! Printing quality is excellent, so you can even print photos to display around the house.
