Did you ever want to print a page from the internet and your web browser, or the site you’re printing from isn’t formatted exactly right? The end result usually produces a badly formatted printout, which is butchered up, or worse, spits out a bunch of blank pages. What a waste of paper!
We can help you with “PrintEco”, an application that is free and works with all the popular browsers.
It’s pricey, yet tests show much of it may never hit the page.
It gives me great pleasure when we have been recommending Brother printers to our clients, and then seeing that recommendation justified in this article from Consumer Reports.
We always knew that printers “bleed” ink to keep the print heads more fluid, which answers the question of “Why do my colors run out, if I only print in black & white?” This report shows which printers “bleed” (or should we say “waste”) more ink than needed.
Since we don’t SELL printers, we consider ourselves to be your “objective advisor”, when it comes to selecting just the right device for your needs. Couple that with our expert knowledge on which cartridges offer the most value to give you the least “cost per page”, and the savings increases exponentially even more. We’re only a phone call away at 732-333-1925.
Please click on the link to refer to the Consumer Reports article below. This will be a very big help to you when selecting the next printer for your home or office. We’re happy that Brother keeps waste to a minimum. And, of course, come see us (or call for business delivery) whenever you need to reload those inks or toners. We’re here to help stop waste and save!

February is a great time for businesses to look at last year’s expenses to see where they can save money. The holidays are over, and we’re back in business mode.
Cartridge World, one of the world’s largest printer cartridge retailers, is helping office managers find new ways to save hundreds of dollars throughout the year on office supplies.
“We are always helping customers save money on printing,” says Jim Dempsey, owner of Cartridge World – Freehold. “We know how difficult it is for businesses to succeed, because we’re business owners, too.”
Dempsey offers a few easy tips to help Freehold business owners save hundreds on printing costs:
Buy two kinds of copy paper. When printing internal office documents, use inexpensive recycled paper stock. Save high-quality paper for the important documents. Then set your printer setting/preference for automatic double-sided printing.
Small businesses can save $1,000 to $2,000 per year if they buy eco-friendly ink and toner printer cartridges. Cartridge World’s high-yield printer cartridges cost as much as 40 percent less than OEM ink and toner. Dempsey added, “Businesses can easily trim $100, $200 or more off their budget every month by using remanufactured printer cartridges.
Match your office printing needs with the right printer. Inexpensive printers are seldom the best deal. $100-and-less printers can actually cost a fortune in the long run. The real cost (for printing supplies) can be as much as three to five times the price of the printer in the first year alone. At Cartridge World – Freehold, we can tell our customers which printers use high-yield ink and toner cartridges and match their actual printing needs to get the best deal. Buying a factory-refurbished printer can also save hundreds. Plus, some factory-refurbished printers offer better warranties than new printer warranties.
Use online postage. It saves the time and expense of going to the post office. The fee for service is often less costly than the mileage and time to drive there. Unlike postage meters, there is no extra equipment to purchase or rent. You only need a computer, a printer and a scale with ounces.
Cartridge World is your local office printing expert. The company sells more than 3,000 different printer cartridges for home and office printers, copiers and fax machines. Plus, every printer cartridge is 100 percent guaranteed. Most stores offer free local delivery for business customers.
You can count on Cartridge World for answering your ink, toner and printer questions. Businesses can request a quote online and set up convenient online printer supply ordering services.

Freehold, NJ (Grassroots Newswire) December 4, 2012 – Although President Obama’s 2013 budget supports more than $16 billion in small business loan guarantees and tax cuts, one of the biggest problems small businesses are currently facing is weak sales, says the National Federation of Independent Businesses. So, with a new budget year right around the corner, many businesses, including those in the Freehold area, are combating lackluster sales by reducing operating expenses.
A simple way to improve the bottom line is to reduce office supply spending, says Cartridge World – Freehold. In fact, the company says businesses can cut office printing costs by 25 percent or more by making a few simple changes.
According to www.Reduce.org, the average office worker can use 10,000 sheets of paper every year. “Considering there are more than 21,000 U.S. and Canadian firms with 500-plus employees, that’s a huge volume of printing,” says Jim Dempsey, owner of Cartridge World – Freehold. “There are three ways businesses can immediately reduce their printing costs. Reduce the number of pages printed. Reduce printer ink and toner expenses. Use the right printer.”
With 600 stores in the United States and Canada, Cartridge World is the largest specialty retailer of ink and toner printer cartridges for the home and office. Each Cartridge World store serves hundreds of business customers and can provide cost-saving solutions:
1. Reduce paper use:
Use duplex (two-sided) printing on all “draft” documents
Reduce margin areas on each page to print 10 percent more text
2. Reduce ink/toner printer cartridge cost:
Purchase recycled / remanufactured printer cartridges instead of OEM to save 25 percent or more
Use high-capacity printer cartridges that provide cheaper per-page printing
3. Use the right printer:
Low-cost printers may cost more in the long run. Confirm what kind of ink or toner cartridges they use first.
Check your printing volume. You might save by upgrading or downsizing your equipment
PC World magazine may say it best, “If you buy a cheap inkjet printer, you’re going to pay a small fortune for the ink to run it (assuming that you use the ink that its manufacturer specially designed for it).” If you buy a $100 inkjet printer and print 10,000 pages per year (40/day), you can use 23 standard ink cartridges per year. At a cost of $20 per cartridge, you’ll pay $475 for black ink alone. In three years, you could pay 15 times the cost of the printer for ink. Plus, you could pay up to three times more if printing in full color.
Selecting the right printer to meet the demands for your office, and confirming the cost of replacement printer cartridges should determine what kind of printer to buy. When buying a color inkjet printer, opt for a printer with four separate color cartridges, not tricolor (three-colors-in-one) cartridges. With tricolor cartridges, as soon as one color is empty, you need to replace the entire cartridge.
“Office managers and executives don’t always realize how much they can save by changing printers and their ink and toner provider,” explained Dempsey. “If you’re using the wrong printer, it pays to switch ASAP. Plus, if you buy remanufactured printer cartridges, you can easily save another 25 percent or more.”
Cartridge World helps businesses of all sizes save money by selling remanufactured ink and toner printer cartridges. Rather than purchasing brand new cartridges every month, customers can simply recycle their empty cartridges at Cartridge World and buy remanufactured cartridges – saving hundreds on their office printing expenses. Cartridge World stores sell printer cartridges for all major brands of office printers – backed with a 100-percent satisfaction guarantee.
If you have questions about what printer is right for your office, what cartridges are best or how to start recycling printer cartridges, contact your local Cartridge World store.

The November CW press release below promotes Cartridge World’s commitment to recycling. Plus, it invites businesses to contact their local store for free printer cartridge recycling, and to ask about e-cycling (small electronics) and other local recycling programs.
IN ONE MONTH alone, more than 1 million inkjet and laser printers are purchased in North America. Cartridge World, the world’s largest specialty retailer of ink and toner printer cartridges, says that’s good news for printer manufacturers, but bad news for landfills.
“With 350 million printer cartridges discarded in landfills annually, the environment is taking a beating,” said William Swanson, Chief Executive Officer for Cartridge World North America. “Our company recycles millions of printer cartridges every year. But that’s just a small part of the solution.”
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that only 25 percent of old consumer electronics are recycled annually, so more than 1.7 million tons of computers, TVs and mobile devices end up in landfills.
Cartridge World stores are a valuable resource for local business owners. With more than 600 stores in North America, Cartridge World provides free printer cartridge recycling, can supply local recycling information, and most offer recycling for small electronic devices.
The need to recycle office supplies is great. Nearly every business uses inkjet or laser office printers. More than 10 million new printers are sold annually, and the machines use dozens of printer cartridges. Alone, the printers sold in 2012 can easily use 80 million cartridges per year.
“The challenge is to think about recycling all year long,” says Swanson. “Cartridge World stores recycle more than 4.5 million printer cartridges annually. Plus, our store owners are very involved in the recycling community and can provide local resource information.”
America Recycles Day (Nov. 15) is an opportunity to dispose old office equipment and supplies. Cartridge World will gladly recycle printer cartridges, cell phones and small electronic equipment (ask Jim or Doreen in Freehold for details at 732.333.1925).
In the United States, businesses can find state and local regulations and resources for recycling larger electronics – computers, laptops, fax machines – at www.ecyclingcentral.com. The EPA urges businesses to take larger equipment to recycling centers. They recover more than 100 million pounds of materials from electronics each year. In Canada, customers can visit www.earth911.com to find recycling programs. More than 1,000 municipalities offer computer and electronics collections as part of household waste collection programs.

In addition to providing free recycling, Cartridge World stores help local businesses save 30-40 percent on their office printing expenses. Cartridge World stores sell remanufactured printer cartridges for all major brands of office printers – backed with a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee.
The company invites businesses to contact their local Cartridge World store for information about initiating a recycling program for their office and/or office buildings. Cartridge World also offers recycling/fundraising programs for local schools and non-profit organizations.
