1. Do Toner Cartridges Have an Expiration Date?

As with most things we purchase, those toner cartridges you keep on hand for your printer have an expiration date. Using toner after its expiration date has passed can have ill effects on your print jobs and the devices they’re used in. The most visible effect you can experience from using expired toner is poor quality for your prints. Over time, the consistency of the fine toner powder within a cartridge can change, clumping and turning lumpy. In this state, it’s more difficult for the powder to be fused onto the paper, which will result in poor-quality prints from your laser printer.

Counterfeit products present a significant problem for consumers around the world who mistakenly purchase fraudulent goods. The office technology space is not immune to this scourge, as counterfeit ink and toner cartridges for printers have become increasingly common in recent years, with massive raids resulting in millions of dollars of bogus printing supplies being seized. While the manufacturers of the products being counterfeited lose revenue to this illegal practice, they’re not the only victims. The end users purchasing what they believe to be genuine printer cartridges are being hoodwinked by counterfeiters, paying near what they would pay for a genuine product for an inferior knock off.

3. Simple Tips to Green Your Printing Practices

Here’s a list of environmentally friendly printing practices that your whole office can start implementing today.

• Recycle ink and toner cartridges. Those old ink and toner cartridges that are filling up your trash cans are also filling up our landfills. Recycling them is an easy step. Some recycled cartridges are even used to create useful items like park benches and picnic tables. How cool is that?

• Use recycled paper. Using recycled paper is not only eco-friendly, but it’s usually more affordable than non-recycled alternatives.

• Maximize your margins. Many people default to standard margin settings out of convenience, but by expanding your margins you can significantly cut down on the number of pages printed, while still maintaining a professional look.
