Posted by Ray Iqbal on

Prices are soaring, and people are becoming anxious when shopping for printer ink Sydney. Being Australia’s central working hub, the market for printer ink is hot; however, prices remain high. Moreover, shoppers are spending too much without even realising that is the case. 

Adding on, it is not the best time to be spending in Sydney with the economy slowing down in recent times. Hence, this has led to Shoppers to be more conscious with the way they spend.  

So, why not be more alert to the way you spend on toner and ink cartridges. Most Sydneysiders seem to brush off the idea that saving on printer ink is not even worth investigating. What most people fail to realise the savings can be massive.

Shopping wiser for printer ink and being more mindful can go a long way. So, to change this stigma here’s three tips to save when shopping for printer ink Sydney:

 1. Question the Way You Shop for Printer Ink

The Printing market is mostly dominated by significant retailers such as Officeworks and Kmart. They sell printers at lower prices; however, they make most of their profits by selling ink and toner cartridges. 

Moreover, their prices for printers are quite affordable and inexpensive. So, if you are looking to buy a printer, going to a retailer can be an option worth reviewing.

However always question what you are purchasing and why is it a certain price.

For instance, cheaper printer prices often mean more expensive printer ink. 

So, do not take everything for face value; major brands make the most money off the average consumer.

If you question where your money is going and are aware of the money-grabbing tactics, you can outsmart the more prominent retailers and ultimately save. 

2.  Calculate How Much You are Spending on Your Toner/ Ink Cartridges

Well, now, that you are questioning where your money is going, its time to analyse and calculate. Printer ink Sydney prices are sky-high, why give in to the higher prices when you can save.

Time to take out that dusty calculator, then punch in some numbers to see how much you are spending. I know, this might sound a bit extreme, but trust me on this, it’s for the best. Find out answers to questions such as How long does your ink last, and How much you are spending on refills.

For example, if you are spending X amount on Epson ink, calculate how much you go through a quarter and note it down. Further, If you want to go more in-depth, you can calculate the number of pages a full refill gets and divide it with the total price.

3. Look for Ways to Save on Your Printer Ink
