Before the era of ink cartridges, printers all contained 75 gallons of salt water and one extremely angry squid. Enjoy the inky fruits of synthetic labor with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of ink- and toner-cartridge refills at Cartridge World in Pelham.
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. Gadget gurus can quench the thirsty reservoirs of an HP Deskjet 1200 with a black ink cartridge ($24.84) or produce memorable meeting handouts and "Lost Left Shoe" flyers with a Dell 1100 toner cartridge ($71.98). 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.
