For years, printer manufacturers and sellers of OEM printer cartridges have railed against the evils of remanufactured printer cartridges. In doing so, they have inadvertently — or not — spread massive amounts of misinformation regarding these cost-saving replacements for OEM cartridges. You can’t blame them — after all, they are simply protecting their market share. But as conscious consumers, you owe it to yourself to uncover the facts about these printer supplies so you can make a smart decision about your office supply purchases.

Fact or Fiction? The Real Truth About Remanufactured Printer Cartridges

If you are searching for ways to save up to 40% on print costs, then you may have considered using remanufactured ink or toner cartridges at some point. If you have, then you may have also encountered dire warnings of the many issues you may confront if you choose to go with third-party cartridges, such as:

Remanufactured Cartridges Will Void Your Printer Warranty

Perhaps the most common myth regarding remanufactured ink and toner cartridges is that their use will void your printer’s warranty. While many OEM manufacturers may want you to think that in order to dissuade you from purchasing supplies outside of their reach, the simple answer is:

No. The use of remanufactured ink or toner cartridges will not void your printer warranty.

Consumer laws such as the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act protect your rights as a consumer. Magnuson-Moss states that a manufacturer cannot void their warranty for a product over the use of aftermarket consumables such as ink and toner cartridges.

Remanufactured Cartridges Don’t Perform at the Same Level as OEM

Not all remanufactured cartridges are the same. Clover Imaging Group produces remanufactured ink and toner cartridges under a rigorous, multi-step manufacturing process that features propriety filling and sealing techniques. The cartridges are also third-party tested by Buyers Laboratory (BLI), a leading business consumer advocate and global independent test lab for office equipment. In our most recent tests for page yield, image quality, and reliability, results measured favorably against the OEM competitor — and our continuous yield numbers met or exceeded OEM standards.

If you choose Clover Imaging Group cartridges, performance is equal to — or better.

In addition, Clover Imaging offers a 100% performance guarantee, so you can be certain you will get the high-quality output you demand.

Remanufactured Cartridges Can Set You Up for Legal Action

In an effort to head off the proliferation of non-OEM ink and toner cartridges on the market, major printer manufacturers, such as Canon and others, have filed and continue to file trademark infringement lawsuits against third-party manufacturers — and consumers and businesses who buy their products.

With Clover Imaging Group remanufactured cartridges, all cartridges are IP cleared and all resellers and indemnified against OEM litigation.

At Clover Imaging Group, we have proprietary robotics and process automation in place that can provide consistent, high-quality output without infringing on OEM patents so there is no risk for legal action for our clients and customers.

Remanufactured Cartridges are the Same as Compatible Cartridges

While you may think the difference is simply semantics, there is a huge difference between remanufactured and compatible cartridges. In a nutshell:

The difference between remanufactured and compatible ink and toner cartridges is the health of our planet.

Remanufactured cartridges are OEM cartridges that have been through a cycle of use. They have been saved from ending up in a landfill, cleaned, and had all useful parts harvested. Once they are refilled with ink, they are quality checked and tested, and, if they are created by Clover Imaging Group, invested with a 100% performance guarantee. Reuse is the highest form of recycling because it is more sustainable, reduces landfill waste, preserves precious natural resources, and saves energy. Compatible cartridges are brand new cartridges that are created from scratch by a third-party vendor.
