Ink and toner cartridge prices are easy to overlook when you are shopping for a new printer. Customers are often distracted by the sale price of the latest weekly deal, forgetting to factor in the total cost of operation. So how do you shop for ink that won’t break the bank?

In this article, we will go over a few different printer and ink combinations based off our top- selling compatible cartridges so can make a smart buy the next time you are shopping for a new printer.
