Do you charge sales tax?

It depends on your state of residence!

In the past we were only required to collect sales taxes from California residents since our office is located in the state of California. However, following the Supreme Court's South Dakota v. Wayfair decision on June 21, 2018, many states have enacted laws requiring online retailers to collect and remit sales taxes even if they do not have a physical presence in the state.

Our website uses an automated tax compliance software that will collect (or not collect) sales taxes in accordance with the most current sales tax laws for each state.

What are remanufactured cartridges?

A remanufactured ink or toner cartridge is an original name-brand cartridge that has been recycled after the initial use. After an original cartridge has been depleted, our technicians disassemble the cartridge, cleaning any leftover residue and replacing any worn or broken components. The cartridges are rebuilt to the original condition, tested to ensure they perform to the industry standards, and professionally sealed and packaged before they are delivered to our customers. Our remanufactured cartridges offer significant savings when compared to the OEM and are 100% guaranteed.

 

What are compatible cartridges?

A compatible ink or toner cartridge is a generic version of a name-brand cartridge. Our compatible cartridges are carefully engineered and deliver the same performance as the original brand names at a fraction of the cost. All compatible cartridges include a 100% satisfaction guarantee, a full 1-year warranty, and lifetime customer support. 

 

Will I void the warranty on my printer if I use your products?

No! This is a common misconception that many printer companies abuse and perpetuate. As a consumer, your right to choose which supplies are best for you is protected by United States law. Under the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Improvement Act, it is unlawful for any printer company to void or revoke a warranty because a consumer uses a non-original printer cartridge. 

We’ve included an excerpt from the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act below for your convenience. 

MAGNUSON-MOSS WARRANTY IMPROVEMENT ACT
United States Code Annotated
Title 15 Commerce and Trade
Chapter 50 Consumer Product Warranties
Section 2032.c

“No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumer's using, in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade, or corporate name; except that the prohibition of this subsection may be waived by the Commission if—

(1) the warrantor satisfies the Commission that the warranted product will function properly only if the article or service so identified is used in connection with the warranted product, and

(2) the Commission finds that such a waiver is in the public interest.”

Do you buy back empty cartridges?

No, we do not refill or remanufacture empty cartridges at our facility. If you’re interested in recycling your empty cartridges, we recommend you take them to a local office supply store like Office Depot or Staples, and they will likely recycle them for you or direct you towards a recycling center.

 

Do you carry OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) cartridges?

No, we only carry remanufactured and compatible ink and toner cartridges. This enables us to bring significant savings to our customers. Our discount printer ink and toner cartridges provide OEM print quality for a fraction of the cost of the original brands, and include a 100% satisfaction guarantee and a full 1-year warranty.

 

What if a product is listed as discontinued?

Unfortunately, some items may become discontinued due to lack of empty recycled cartridges or lack of demand for particular items. If an item is marked as discontinued, chances are that we will not be getting it anytime soon.
