Cartridge World's team of ink masters reverse-engineer the inner workings of the cartridges of major printer manufacturers, refilling them with their own inks for less than the cost of a brand-new cartridge.

Cartridge World technicians recycle depleted units to diminish consumer costs and reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing plastic. All cartridges are guaranteed to perform as well as their OEM counterparts, spewing out page after page of vivid photos and toner-laden documents until their tiny dye-filled hearts cease to beat and require another inky defibrillation.
