Ink2image, a Glenview, IL-based Manufacturer of digital inks, media, bulk-feed systems and related products for wide format inkjet printing, has launched a comprehensive range of compatible cartridges for most popular HP Designjet wide format printers. Models supported Include older machines such as the Designjet 5500 and Z6100 through to the latest latex ink printers.
Using remanufactured OEM cartridges, the Ink2image ink offerings are all made in the USA and include dye, pigment, solvent, and latex formulations that are precisely color matched to the original inks so new color setting or profiles are not normally required. Typical costs savings run at 50% compared to OEM cartridge.
“At Ink2image, we have always been concerned by the amount of plastic waste generated by the wide format inkjet industry. Our Repleo Cartridge recycling program enables us to re-use original cartridges and dramatically reduce the usage of oil and the amount of cartridges that end up in land fill sites,” explains Tony Martin, President of Ink2image. “At the same time, we are offering our customers the benefit of substantial savings on their ink costs by providing remanufactured cartridges filled with our latest color matched and guaranteed inks. It’s a win-win situation for print producers – help protect the environment and save money as well.”
The Repleo program has two parts. Firstly, empty cartridges can be sent to Ink2image for cash. “You don’t have to be a customer to send us your empty cartridges. We will accept cartridges back from any source and pay the freight,” states Martin. “Secondly, Repleo remanufactured cartridges filled with the latest Ink2image inks are available from Ink2image’s substantial inventory of recycled cartridges that save over 50% in ink costs. “A lot of effort went in to the development of our latest inks for HP printers to ensure they match the color and performance of the original inks. We guarantee that our inks will work just as well as the OEM inks and won’t damage your printer” continues Martin. “This means that users can happily print with existing color settings and profiles, an unusual feature with aftermarket inks. Our inks are also freely mixable with the original inks so one color at a time can be changed out as existing cartridges are used up”.
