Refilling your empty ink cartridges is an extremely cost effective way of printing and lightens the load carried by the environment as it keeps cartridges from landfill sites as well as reducing the negative environmental impact of having to manufacture as many new cartridges.

And what about my printer warranty, you ask? Inky Shop alternative and refilled ink cartridges will NOT void your printer warranty. In fact, consumer law states that a manufacturer’s warranty cannot be voided due to the consumer exercising their right to use the aftermarket consumable of their choice.

Printer manufacturers have tried to limit third party ink suppliers by putting smart computer chips on their cartridges that let only their OEM ink cartridges work in their printers. The Inky Shop is able to reset the chips on many models of cartridge so that so you can print with confidence knowing our product will be accepted by your machine.

At a fraction of the price of a new cartridge, refilling will extend the life of most inkjet cartridges without harming the printer! The ‘workhorse’ of the inkjet printer is the print head and circuitry contained on the cartridge itself. These heaters continue to do their work and the nozzles continue to fire well beyond just one use on most inkjet cartridges. In fact, the print head will continue to work on average somewhere between the 3rd and 6th time the cartridge is used until the print head weakens significantly or burns out completely.

Refills are surprisingly technical. Cartridges use different technology to print, such as thermal bubble or Piezoelectric technology (patented by Epson), and the ink composition varies greatly between manufacturers. At The Inky Shop, our professional quality refilling service uses vacuum-fill technology and premium quality German inks that are cartridge specific and 100% compatible with your printer cartridge. This ensures superior results - yields and finest quality printing to match the original! Refilled cartridges always contain at least the same amount of ink as the original, and sometimes up to 20% more! Eventually your cartridge will reach a point at which it can no longer be refilled. Through testing we will advise you of whether your cartridge is in a satisfactory state to refill and when a replacement cartridge purchase is required.

We stand by our refills! Inky Shop refilled cartridges are endorsed by our 100% money-back guarantee!
