The making of Ink


Most of us have used a Colour Printer at least once in our lives and it’s self-explanatory that a colour printer requires Ink Cartridges, but do you know how the cartridges are made?

The CMYK colours that are used to reflect light are completely different to RGB colours that are used to transmit light; instead, the Ink Cartridges in CYMK colours consist of; Cyan, Yellow, Magenta, and Black. They are used to create Black. These colours are often the colours found in printers. On the other hand, all colours for any display that transmits light are Red, Blue and Green, which are RGB models; RGB models are displayed on your TV’s and computers by using the colours to transmit light.


Similar materials in Ink are used in art and identifying what right colours to use and what to mix is important in creating vivid images. Ink and paint are very alike. Ink is not just used for printing; it’s used for writing and drawing also. It’s crazy to think that Ink dates back to the ancient Egyptians with their hieroglyphics, or the Chinese with their calligraphy or even the Romans!

Primarily… what is Ink and how is it made?

A combination of ingredients are incorporated with the makes of Ink, these include; resin, a variety of pigments, varnish, lubricants and wax. All of these are mixed at high temperatures to form a mixture that is alike. Titanium dioxide is used to lighten the pigments whilst carbon black pigments are made from Black Ink, meanwhile varnish is used for any base of any Ink. The pigments are used in the mixture to break any clumpy parts formed from the resins (which secure the ingredients together). An oil is a common base used in the making of printer Ink.

In simpler terms, it goes a bit like this:

  1. Varnish Manufacturing
  2. Premix
  3. Grinding
  4. Dilution
  5. Packaging

The heating process differs for certain printers like Brothers or Epson, as a substitute a material called piezoelectric is used and an electrical current then changes the shape of the piezoelectric. The pressure forces the ink to form a droplet into the nozzle.

Did you know…?

  • Did you know that certain fonts use more Ink?

Certain fonts like ‘Arial’ use more Ink due to It being much larger, meaning the cartridges and Ink run out faster than fonts like Garamond, Times New Roman or Courier.  

The Ink You Can’t See


The existence of invisible ink is the stuff of romantic tale. For decades, it has been used by spies and clandestine lovers to send secret messages to their mates. Although invisible ink is still used for similar reasons today, it has recently taken on a variety of new and interesting applications.

Hundreds of liquids can be utilised as invisible ink, ranging from fruit juices to carefully designed chemicals. We’ll look at seven of the more intriguing and approachable kinds. We hope this article has sparked your interest in making your own invisible ink at home. You, too, can become a master of steganography (which is the art of creating secret messages, in case you didn’t know!) with a little practise.

How much does printing a page actually cost?


When purchasing printer inks and cartridges, the first thing to consider is how much each page will cost. The terms page yield, duty cycle, and page coverage may appear in product descriptions, but what do they mean and why do they matter?

Ink Toners

The maximum number of pages you can print with one ink cartridge or toner is called page yield (also known as duty cycle). Because not all pages will print with the same quantity of ink, calculating the precise page yield on an ink cartridge can be difficult.

To address this problem, the Office of Fair Trading mandated that the product description of ink cartridges include a measurement of ‘page coverage,’ which provides buyers with a general idea of how many pages they can print. Page yields for ink and toner cartridges may also be calculated using the Industry Standard (ISO) test with 5% coverage on each page. People sometimes get confused when it says 5%. When it says 5% its talking about 5% of the page.

The High Demand of HP Ink Cartridges


With this current pandemic, it is clear to see that a lot of companies and manufacturers are struggling in the production and distribution of their products due to the many restrictions and hurdles in their way. This has caused a massive shortage in ink cartridges and toners. However, there is a specific company that has continuously had this problem and just can’t seem to keep up with the demand from the customers. I am of course talking about HP and their extremely popular ink cartridges for example the 304s and 305s just to name a few.

This issue has only increased with the pandemic and this year has reached an all-time high with the request for out of stock items increasing by 9000% which now means the top 10 most requested out-of-stock inks are all HP products which leads you to wonder as to why HP haven’t found a solution to this problem.

However part of the problem is also the amount of stress that has been put on the suppliers to send and deliver these products which obviously has also been a challenge due to everyone being stuck at home and ordering excessively.

Although these products are hard to get a hold of people are going with the alternatives which are compatible ink cartridges which are an excellent alternative seeing as they will save you a fortune and

Have You Considered Any Other Ways to Save or Recycle Your Paper?


Have you ever been sitting in the office and wondered how many tree you’ve destroyed that day with all the printing? Well most likely you have but the point is have you thought about doing any thing about it?

Recycling paper

There is so many different things you can do, not to completely save mother earth yourself but to do your part but this isn’t something new you probably already have some sort of recycling system in the office or at home.

The real question is how can you guarantee that you paper or plastic or whatever you recycling to going through the right process? There is so many companies that can help with that and that offer great services and take pride in their work.

Examples of these companies are Waste Concern Ltd, Capital Waste and many more profound companies

The process of recycling paper is relatively simple. It begins with gathering the waste materials and ends with new paper products. Here’s how it works:

1-Contaminants are removed at the recycling center. This typically includes paper clips, staples and pieces of plastic from packing materials.

2-Paper is sorted by grades, baled and shipped to the processor.

3-Pulpers at the processing mill shred the paper and mix it with water and chemicals to break down the fibers. Heat is applied to speed the breakdown of the wood fibers in the paper and create a slurry of wood fibers.

4-The pulverized paper and fibers are screened to remove any remaining contaminants.

5-It is then cleaned, and the inks are removed by spinning the pulp in a cone-shaped cylinder.

6-The pulp is then sprayed onto a conveyer belt, and the water is allowed to drip through the screen on the belt. This causes the fibers in the pulp to begin to bond.

7-Heated rollers then dry the paper and bond the fibers.

8-The paper is placed on large rolls that will be used to make new paper products.

The Devastating Effects That Ink Has on The Planet


A survey by Capgemini has shown that people are rethinking their choice of cartridge after coming to the realization that some cartridges are very uneconomically friendly and have a devastating effect on the environment.

Ink cartridges Recycling

Capgemini says that Covid has had a great impact on peoples awareness and commitment to sustainable shopping.

Ink printers and their ink are made up of several ingredients, most of them chemicals that have the potential to be damaging to you and the environment. Some of these include butyl urea, which prevents your paper from curling; cyclohexanone, which helps ink adhere to polymers; several dyes including reactive red 23 dye, acid yellow 23 dye and direct blue 199 dye, which contains sulphur; ethoxylated acetylenic diols which modify the surface tension of the water and colours; Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) which is full of contaminants and ethylene glycol.

The unsafe ecological variables of ink cartridges can be felt since they are made. At the point when you produce another laser cartridge, you expend multiple quarts of oil. For inkjet cartridges, you require around three ounces of oil.

However we at InkNToner are doing our best and working extremely hard to do our part and try to protect this earth. We actually recycle all ink cartridges that are eligible for recycling. We also tend to reuse cartridges in order to limit the amount of plastic we use. On top of this our prices are unmatched. So definitely check out our compatible ink cartridges to SAVE MONEY WHILE SAVING THE PLANET.

Why we Recycle Toner And Ink Cartridges And How They Effect The World


Did you know that 375 million ink and toner cartridges are binned every year and more then 70% of them aren’t recycled, that’s approximately 262,500,000 ink cartridges and to be even more precise that’s 5 ink cartridges per second being dumped in landfills which is crazy to think about. However there is something you can do to help this problem and that’s taking them into your local ink shop for them to refill them and resell them or you could recycle them yourself.

Ink cartridges if not recycled could effect our planet quite a bit because of the ingredients they contain, for example cyclohexanone, sulphur and even ethoxylated acetylenic diols, which are incredibly harmful to us humans, and our planet. That’s why recycling cartridges is so important.

Luckily, there are now laser cartridges, which are more eco-friendly then others and could help reduce the waste produced from cartridges. Laser cartridges also don’t dry up even if left for a very long time, this makes it an even better option when buying toner cartridges for your printer.

Why You Should Always Check Your Cartridges When Buying From eBay


Ink Cartridges

Ever bought an ink cartridge from eBay or even amazon and were not satisfied with the quality or even the amount of prints you were able to get out of the cartridge itself. Well there could be a very easy yet upsetting reason for this, which is that the person or company you are purchasing your inks from could possibly be scamming you.

Recently retailers selling on such sites as eBay and Amazon have been tricking their customers into buying high capacity ink cartridges which are actually standard capacity ink cartridges by replacing the sticker of the standard capacity with a high capacity sticker which is very wrong and extremely against the rules and regulations of eBay and Amazon.

There are a couple of ways of finding out if your ink cartridges are genuinely high capacity cartridges. One way of finding out is by checking the size of the of the sponge which is located inside the cartridge and if it does not fill the cartridge most likely the cartridge is a standard capacity. Because of this a lot of people have not chosen to not buy compatibles and move over to original products which are super expensive especially compared to the compatible products.

So remember, every time you buy an ink cartridge from a seller that isn’t verified always check for these tiny details or even better you can just check us out and get an even better price with better quality.

New Firmware Blocking Device Prototype in Testing


What is a firmware update you ask?

Firmware updates are updates printer companies like HP, Brother, Canon and other companies bring out every now and then for your printers to do. However, there is a twist.

One big reason why your printers want you to update them is so that you do not purchase any more compatible ink cartridges and sway towards their own original cartridges, which is not ideal considering they are considerably higher in cost.

Ready for another shocker? Most of the time the latest firmware upgrade can actually downgrade not upgrade features or even functionality and when you’ve gone through with the update theres no coming back. Really and truly firmware updates are made to actually try stop or at least limit the use of third party products but again if you prefer OEM products this won’t affect you.

But don’t worry because this problem wont be around for much longer because The Recycler is going to be testing out a number of prototype devices that will override firmware updates and enable you to continue using none original and cheaper cartridges. They are currently in the testing phase and will be presented at The Recycler Firmware forum on January 2020 during Remanexpo and Paperworld.

Why do we see yellow toner in non-yellow toner cartridges?


yellow toner in non-yellow toner cartridges

Prior to putting in the toner cartridge into your machine, some people may notice a coating of yellow or white toner powder showing on the developer roller of the Black, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow toner cartridges.

yellow toner powder thin coating

The skinny coating of yellow toner or white powder is a part of the manufacturing process and is utilised to all colour LaserJet cartridges (Black, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow) on the manufacturing unit.

HP OEM cartridges

As you can see from the original toner cartridge, the HP OEM cartridges will even have this coating.

Q:  Do all HP Original colour LaserJet cartridges have the coating of the yellow powder?
A:   Yes, the powder also appears on all HP original developer rollers, as shown on the image above.
Q:  What’s the purpose for the application of the yellow toner or white powder?
A:   The powder functions as a lubricant to the inside elements of the cartridge. It’s also used for testing functions to make sure the toner is of high quality.

Q:  How long will the yellow toner or white powder be present on the developer roller?
A:  It should disappear before the first few pages are printed. During the quick calibration if you set up your cartridge the powder will get eliminated.
Q:  Why specifically is the colour yellow or white used?
A:  As they blend in easily with the other colours of the toner.

Why you shouldn’t use Epson ReadyInk with Amazon Dash


Amazon’s Newest Product Will Attempt to Manipulate You, but don’t be fooled with opting in for this service.

Epson’s clients can now register to get Epson ink cartridges delivered routinely through Amazon Dash Replenishment.

Epson readyink

Sadly, Dash makes you pay for it’s comfort within the type of restricted choices, which removes potential discounts and offer and locks consumers into buying original cartridges therefore you are 100% not saving any money. As you know from purchasing from us, the compatibles and remanufactured inks are alot cheaper to buy than the originals.

There are solely a restricted variety of manufacturers to select from (Original inks rather than compatibles or remanufactured) and purchasing originals don’t supply the identical reductions you may get when shopping from Amazon’s web site.

Amazon is forgoing its regular optimisation for buyer satisfaction in favour of maximising earnings.

There are alot of drawbacks to using this new service: What if a toddler decides to press the button?
Is it sensible to have loads of those buttons for all the printers that you have and you may not want to replace the inks but paying for a service regardless?
Isn’t it simply as straightforward to order these merchandise out of your smartphone through other sites like
In conclusion, the Dash Button is an promoting marketing campaign disguised as an modern new service which will get shoppers to cease thinking about shopping for themselves.

Maybe this fancy new button is known as a means for Amazon to blind you to the amount of cash you’re spending.

Initially ReadyInk was explained by Epson as a “hassle-free and subscription-free service” which permits its clients to sign up with a chosen retailer once they buy their printer and join this automated system, which can provide “original ink cartridges” at any time when their ink depletes.

On 17 June Epson launched ReadyInk with Amazon Dash Replenishment which permits clients to register their Epson printer with Dash Replenishment in simply a couple of easy steps. Clients can activate Dash Replenishment, which works with Epson ReadyInk service to watch ink levels and routinely reorder when you run out of ink.

Epson states “clients are all the time in management as they solely spend money when new cartridge is required and might stop the subscription at any time.”

But this adds to inconvenience as you can’t shop around for cheaper inks. we are not that busy or lazy to do this, which Amazon and Epson thinks we are.

Samsung and Brother also enrolled to Amazon Dash Replenishment service very early on when the functionality was first launched by Amazon. Epson, HP and Kyocera joined in later on in 2018.

In January 2019 a lawsuit was efficiently filed by shopper centre, NRW, towards Amazon within the Greater Regional Courtroom Munich, with the case revolving across the Amazon Dash button.

As reported during that time, the Amazon Dash button “massively” violates legal guidelines as buyers had been “not sufficiently knowledgeable concerning the ordered commodity and their worth.”

Whereas Amazon’s Dash programme is of simple profit to each the retailer and the OEMs, in addition to offering a handy service for purchasers, it is usually prone to have a detrimental affect on the remanufacturing and compatible business by additional decreasing the demand for compatible printer cartridges.

To conclude; don’t use the Amazon Dash service as you will be able to source to products yourself cheaper with other retailers. It’s easier to shop around nowadays to find cheaper alternatives to your products.

Always buy compatibles or remanufactured ink (non-original products) if you want to save money. The best alternative to an original cartridge.

Printerable Ludo game with die and counters

Ludo Instructions:

Each player gets rolls the die, the roller who gets 6 begins the game. The other players start rolling the die in a clockwise direction. To win the game a player must move all their counters to the finishing centre square first.

To enter a counter into play, a player must roll a 6. If the player does not roll a 6, the turn passes to the next player. Once a player has one or more counters in play, they can take any of their counters in play and move them forward. The number on the rolled die will determine the number of squares the chosen piece moves forward.

When a player rolls a 6, they may choose to move a counter already in play forward, or alternatively, they may enter another counter from its stationary starting position to its starting square. The rolling of a 6 earns the player an extra roll. If the extra roll results in a 6 again, the player earns another additional bonus roll. If the third roll is also a 6, the player may not move a counter, and the turn immediately passes to the next player.

If a player lands on a square they already occupy, the pair of counters form a block. Other players cannot pass or land on the block. If moving a counter forward means it ends on a square occupied by an opponent’s counter, the opponent’s counter is returned to its owner’s starting position. The returned counter may only be entered back into play when the owner rolls a 6 again.

Once a counter travels around the entire board and reaches its home column, it has to be moved towards the home. For this, a player has to roll the exact number the counter has to move in order to reach home. For example, if you roll a four, and your counter requires a move of only three squares, you have to move another counter or pass.

Printer Security: Why It’s Important and What To Do


Printer Security: Why It’s Important and What To Do

Printer security has been in the news over the last year, famously for the PewdiePie printer hacking incident, but is a wider issue than we seem to realise. Yet fewer than 50% of business currently protect personal identifiable information, especially in relation to printing-base processes. Multi-Function Printers (MFPs) are in fact vulnerable to attacks and thus the General Data Privacy Regulation are requesting enterprises to protect their print infrastructure from cyber attack, which could range from malicious external cyber attack to documents being left on a shared device. In both cases sensitive printed documents can end up in the hands of unauthorised recipients. Pretty much every MFP currently on the market could be a target for hackers who aim to use them as a way to access corporate networks. However, print security is generally something which is overlooked by even the largest of firms, and personal identifiable information is rarely protected.

Ensuring security should be a twofold procedure when it comes to print security. Firstly, printers must be secured, and then the printing processes must also be secured. The latter usually entails a multi-faceted approach ensuring data is protected at the print environment level. Although there is a lot of focus on data privacy, it is usually at the digital level that measures are implemented. Most businesses forget about the security risks that poor control of print-reliant processes and working culture poses. This needs to change if we want to limit risk and demonstrate compliance. So how can enterprises secure printers from the potential threats? Here are some simple tips:

The first level of security is done by applying the latest firmware updates as manufactures are trying to fix vulnerabilities including serious security issues with their printers and they might also include other features that could make your printers more secure. You can also use admin tools to make this process simpler such as HP Web Jetadmin, which is not restricted to HP printers alone. The next step you can take is to ensure you printer has an internal IP address. You can also restrict connectivity to a specific LAN. Many business printers have a PIN system whereby you can enter a PIN to start the print job. Not only does this add an extra level of security but also ensures less paper is wasted. The next crucial step is to making sure that remote printing is secure. There are other levels of security that can be implemented, such as making sure your printer’s hard disk is encrypted and if you decide to scrap a printer make sure that the hard disk is professionally wiped. If the printer is administered over the internet, then enable SSL to ensure all communications take place over https. Hopefully these tips should ensure security to an acceptable level. However, there are additional ways to approach the process of securing your printer. Getting a Secure Print Analysis from HP is a good way to start.

Advantages of Toner with Drum Unit Combos


advantages of toner with drum combo

There are essentially two ways to buy consumables in the market when you consider how the toner and drum units are sold. Either they are sold together or the two components are sold separately and therefore are replaced separately.

So how do you know when it is time to replace the toner? The toner cartridge contains powder used for creating the image. When the toner is running out you will notice your prints are being inconsistent or too light, and sometimes even blank. However, the drum is the component that transfers the toner to the paper. You will know when it is time to replace the drum, as when the drum is at the end of its life, you will begin to see lines or similar errors repeated across the page. So, the obvious advantage of buying a combo is if you see both of these happening (therefore implying both need replacement) However, if only one or the other has reached the end of its life then you may believe it would be advantageous to buy separately, that is buy just the one you require, but actually you may need to replace the other too further in time.

As drum units typically tend to last much longer than toner cartridges (though this is dependent on the design), you will probably find that in most cases, it is the toner that runs out. Also if you like to buy our own brand cartridges as opposed to the OEM products (i.e. made by the manufacturer of your printer) you will more likely spend less money as refilled and generic toner are less costly and have the same life span (last as long) as original toners. Only these instances, previously it was easier to find alternatives when the toner was separate from the drum. The reason behind this is that, the manufacturer is meant to refill the toner and refurbish the drum, but usually they only refill the toner and forget about the drum. You can also buy the OEM drum if you prefer that whilst getting any of the compatible toners for your printer when you buy from us. But we have made it easier for you by matching the compatible toner with its accompanying compatible drum. We would highly recommend buying the combo, as to be honest there are really not any disadvantages to buying the combo as both the toner and drum will run out at some point anyway!

Also, toner and drum combos are great value especially if you need to replace both, but also in the instances when you need to replace only one, as the other can be kept for when the one in your printer has reached the end of its life. Check out our great value top selling toner and drum combos for Brother, Xerox, Panasonic, HP, OKI and Samsung!

Happy 30th Birthday World Wide Web!


World Wide Web is 30 today

The World Wide Web has grown to the extent that we cannot now image a world without it. From education to e-commerce, it is part of our everyday lives. And it was invented on this day (12th March) thirty years ago!

It all began when Sir Tim Berners-Lee, a software engineer at CERN, realised that information could be shared on the internet* by an emerging technology called HyperText. He made a visionary proposal and later developed three fundamental technologies that to this day remain the foundations of the web, namely, HTML (HyperText Markup Language), URI (Uniform Resource Identifier also known as URL) and HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol), which is the underlying protocol used by the World Wide Web.

Realising that the web could be made accessible to anyone, people outside of CERN were invited to join this new web community. Revolutionary ideas originally produced by the web community have found applications beyond the technology sector, spreading into a number of different fields such as politics, education, scientific research and culture.

These principles included decentralisation, non-discriminatory ideals, a bottom-up design, consensus and universality. The World Wide Web Consortium was founded later in 1994, and Tim remains the director to this day, and continues its visionary approaches to continually build a better web that serves all of humanity.

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) tackle issues such as the fact that more than half the world’s population is still not able to get online as well as the risks posed by the web to privacy, democracy and rights. Fighting for digital equality, women’s rights online as well as for affordability of the internet, they are rethinking the way things are done, which may again have positive impacts on other fields.

*(The terms internet and World Wide Web are often used interchangeably, by do not mean the same thing! The internet is the global system of interconnected computer networks whereas the World Wide Web is a global collection of resources linked by hyperlinks and URLs.)

Today, Google has dedicated a Doodle to the World Wide Web for its thirtieth anniversary!

So You Want to be a Photographer – Advice on Buying the Tools


so you want to be a photographer - buying the tools

So you want to enter the world of photography but are wondering where and how to begin. Perhaps you are tight on budget, or you want to quickly accelerate to a professional level but are wondering which camera you want to start with. Though we won’t be able to explore the whole equipment range, this blog post gives you great general advice for starting out whatever your circumstances. There will obviously be other tools available but we will cover the very basics.

Firstly, you need a decent camera. Research the latest camera editions and remember to look at models just slightly older than the current ones, as they may be considerably cheaper with pretty much the same functionality.

Aside from the camera, it is vital you buy good quality lenses, as this one of the major factors that dictate the quality of the photo. Consider zoom lenses and research the effect of the different ranges offered by your viable options. A standard zoom lens might offer the focal lengths 18-55mm, which may be enough for your requirements, but if you want to take wildlife photography for example consider a greater range. As you may know the advantage of a zoom lens is the flexibility, however if you want better image quality, prime lenses should also be a part of your kit. Check out prime lens reviews and the clarity of images they would produce before you buy. Some great value lenses in the market sometimes come with slight tints, which may or may not be what you want. You may need to invest in more than one prime lens.

The next pieces of equipment are filters depending on the look you are going for. However also bear in mind that digital photos can be edited and have filters added in post-production to give the same look and feel as having used physical filters.

Next, invest in a tripod if the camera is going to be standing still in one position for a while for the photos; this may not always apply. If you need to move around a lot and need clear shots or want to record a video, consider options like a Steadicam.

Cleaning equipment and memory cards are essential but should not be difficult to choose from the options available. We sell a range of SD cards, which vary in size and capacity from 1GB to 256GB; choose one depending on you device and the quantity and quality of your photos. For a professional photographer, who usually takes photos rapidly, getting the fastest SD card is important. The same goes for if you would like to record video.

Now you are well equipped to take great photos, but what about post-production work such as editing? If you can afford an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription then the question is which of the suite to go for. Photoshop and perhaps Lightroom are essentials but are there other photo editors out there that are good alternatives. Do your research. If your objective is to print your work as opposed to post on digital channels, then make sure your editing software allows RGB to CMYK conversion so that your printout will have the colours optimised. For more information on this, read our blogpost on CMYK & RGB.

Printing out your photographs is the last but crucial step to get right. Experiment with colour and black and white prints, and invest in a good printer, photo paper, and cartridges. For a quick printing guide, checkout our blogpost ‘A Quick Printing Guide for Photographers’. Depending on your budget and requirements, you can choose from a range of available options. For example, for vivid photographs a combination of glossy paper and dye ink might be the best option. We sell quality compatible ink and toner cartridges at a fraction of the cost of the originals – these are a great alternative to original cartridges if you are short of cash. If you went for a HP printer, and want the quality of original cartridges and don’t want to go for compatibles, IBM replacement cartridges are great alternative.

CMYK & RGB Colour Models for Print & Digital Design


CMYK vs RGB for print and digital

If you are familiar with working with digital or print design, you will probably be aware of the different colour models to utilise. RGB is an additive colour model, which means white is produced by combining all the primary coloured lights and black is the absence of light. CMYK is however a subtractive colour model and refers to the ink colours Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key (Black).

Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black

The CMYK model works by partially masking the colours on a lighter, usually white background. The ink, which reduces the light that would have been reflected, therefore ‘subtracts’ the colours red, green and blue from white light. This distinction between the models makes the RGB prefect for digital and CMYK ideal for print; CMYK sometimes refers to the printing process itself.

However, the range offered by RGB (its colour gamut) is larger than that of the CMYK which explains why sometimes although you design looks good on screen in RGB, the CMYK usually lacks vibrancy. Also, some colours cannot be reproduced using CMYK. As a result your print out may look a little muddied. If you are a professional photographer for example, this is obviously not the result you want.

Many constraints exist when trying to achieve the reproduction of colours that are perceived by the eye in nature. However, there are many printing processes that have be devised such as offset and lithographic printing processes, which though are still in development, already produce a more natural look.

One good advice is to make sure you only work with colours that can be printed (that is, within the CMYK gamut). For example if you are working in Photoshop, you can opt to work in the CMYK mode. However, with today’s wide format printers that have 12 ink colours, you may be able to achieve a spectrum closer to that of RGB. Canon’s imagePROGRAF PRO printer range has good options for this. You can buy printing supplies for these printers in the InknTonerUK website. Ideally, if you are concerned about the colours looking good you would opt for original inks. But, this can be very expensive, so we provide you with multipack options which will give you great savings. For example, we sell multi-packs for the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000, imagePROGRAF PRO-2000, imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 and more.


Busting the Myth that Printing is not Sustainable!


Printing is sustainableThe digital revolution has meant a switch over to non-paper-based communication, increasingly reinforced by penalties and supplementary charges for using paper. But has misinformation been the driving catalyst for this change? Did you know that one of the main reasons companies want to shift to electronic delivery is to save money and not necessarily be environmentally responsible. It is a well-known fact that people understand, retain and use information better when in print on paper, and paper is in fact sustainable when consumed responsibly. For example, double-sided printing in the office and collection schemes will reduce costs as well as improve sustainability. There are software packages available such as GreenPrint that isolate blank pages for example, thus reducing the number of binned sheets of paper. If companies want to save money, then investing in a printer that takes compatible cartridges easily is a good idea (most printers do). As it is often the cartridges that add to the running costs of printing, knowing your cartridge options for your particular printer becomes of paramount importance. You can search for cartridges by navigating using the make and model of your printer on the InknTonerUK website on the quick search toolbar.

The European paper industry recycles at the rate of 72% (2016 figure) – and with recycling collection systems improving this rate is set to increase. As you know, the main raw material is wood; if harvested in a carefully controlled and sustainable way, it makes printing a sustainable industry. In some countries, in particular, in the tropics, the conversion of forests to industrial plantations is a cause for concern, but that is not the case in Europe where most of our paper is sourced. In fact, European forests have increased in size by an area the size of Switzerland in just ten years. The paper, pulp and print sector is one of the lowest industrial emitters or greenhouse gasses, accounting of 1%of global emissions. And with many customers still valuing paper-based communication, it might be wise to not go entirely digital.

If you want to print in an environmentally friendly manner, but worry about the quality of your prints, rest assured that buying remanufactured cartridges from a trusted vendor like InknTonerUK would guarantee that your remanufactured cartridges would perform as well as a new cartridge. Look our for the pink ‘premium’ label on the products on the site for premium remanufactured products. Compatible cartridges on the other hand are great value alternatives for everyday use.

A Quick Printing Guide for Photographers (Beginners & Professionals)


A quick printing guide for photographers by Ink n Toner UK

For all photographers, it is important to ensure a combination of having the right printer, suitable inks and the correct photo paper. However, with the abundance of available choices, it is often confusing to pick out exactly what you need. Ideally, you would need a printer that has the right balance of quality, cost and specific features depending your photo printing demands, and whether you are an amateur or a professional, you want feel satisfied with your work so you need to choose options that show your work in the best light.



For an aspiring photographer a printer such as the Canon PIXMA iP8720, would allow you to experiment with colour as well as black and white prints. And, it supports up to a 13” x 19” print size. For a relatively low cost option, it has an incredible 9600 x 2400 dpi resolution, which is perfect for those highly detailed photos.

A higher cost option (at double the price) is the Canon Pixma Pro 10, which allows for 10 pigmented inks offering an great range of colours. Pigmented inks last longer whereas dye-based inks produce more vivid colours but do not last as long. Also supporting a 13” x 19” print size and wireless capabilities, it is a good option if you can afford the 10 replacement cartridges. Compatible cartridges are a viable alternative. Click here for suitable ink cartridges:


For professional photographers out there, the Epson SureColour P800 is a great option. Not only is it relatively cheap, but has great print quality and a good page yield. Allowing for a wide-format use, it enables printing up to 17” x 22”. Great for printing border-less photos.


Most printers have universal compatibility, but it is important to see what type of photo paper your printer can take. As for high quality photographs Inkjet printing is ideal, so we will discuss now discuss Inkjet photo paper.

There are various photo paper finishes, which is the translucent chemical coating that improves appearance of the print. From glossy and matt to satin and pearl and luster and various other finishes, you need to choose the correct one for your particular print job. Glossy paper ranges in glossiness, however there may be glare in the resulting image from high glossy papers which make viewing challenging. Nevertheless, glossy paper is the most widely used type of photo paper for a quality finish. Matt has no glossiness, making it a cheaper option (due to the lack of the expensive coating), but ideal for black and white photos. Satin paper has ‘semi-gloss’. Pearl and Luster has a textured feel to it and is a type of satin finish. A high paper density (GSM weight) is ideal for a luxury look, for example on greeting cards, but is often not cost effective.

Ink n Toner UK are doing an offer this week of 2 free packs of glossy photo paper when your order comes to £20 or more! Ends midnight on Friday the 18th of January 2019.


It is often the question whether it is better to produce your photos with dye or pigment based ink. Dyes are colourants dissolved in liquid while pigments inks are microscopic specks of solid colours that are suspended in liquid. You might use dye as it is cheaper and great for vivid prints. Dye is ideal for album photography, and the best results are on high gloss paper. But they could take a while to dry and will fade over time. Photos printed using dye inks last for about 25 years if protected by glass. Pigment inks are only for the top-end printers, and can produce high quality on a range of paper. They give long lasting and consistent results but lack in vibrancy.

So the choices your make will depend on your printing needs and budget. If for example you require colourful and vivid photographs then a combination of glossy paper and dye ink would be the best option. Also make sure your ink is compatible with your printer!

Printing for Business Made Simple


Business Printing

If you are a business, the ongoing running costs of a printer can often eat into a business’ utilities budget as costs increase with high volume everyday use.

For bulk printing, businesses should consider laser printers with attributes such as automatic double-sided printing. An all-purpose printer that scans and copies as well would be ideal, like the Epson Workforce printers for example, and for larger businesses, a printer that offers stapling is a bonus. Brother, HP, Canon and Samsung printers are among the very best brands for businesses.

However, which one of the range should you go for? Wireless and network printers are perfect for businesses environments with a large workforce. However, at this point, it is important to consider the running costs which boils down to the type of toner cartridges you decide to choose. Ink n Toner UK offers a wide range of cartridges that are compatible with thousands of different laser printers so by visiting the site and browsing through the options (on you become well equipped to make a strategic choice about your printer.

Remanufactured Cartridges vs OEM

However, whereas buying original toner cartridges repeatedly may cost you a fortune in the long term, premium remanufactured or value compatibles are far more affordable options that do not infringe on quality. (So before you buy your printer, consider the compatibility of different types of cartridges, and whether we offer compatible cartridges for your printer.) If however, you want the guaranteed match (at the very least) in print quality and page yield of an original cartridge, Xerox Ultimate and IBM Ultimate toner cartridges are also highly viable options as they still offer considerable savings against original cartridges.

Well, rest assured we are here to help you with a guide on the kinds of printers you can find, if you would like a more detailed guide, you might want to look

Printer Types

There are varied types of printers depending on how much you would like to spend, as well as what you want out of your printer.

Inkjet Printers

Inkjet printing is a type of computer printing that recreates a digital image by propelling droplets of ink onto paper, plastic, or other substrates. Inkjet printers are the most commonly used type of printer, and range from small inexpensive consumer models to expensive professional machines. Inkjet printers tend to produce higher quality photographs than laser printers. If you like photography or are maybe looking to create some photo albums, a good quality inkjet printer makes the most of photos from DSLR and phone cameras.


Laser Printers

Laser printers are designed for consistent use and are able to reduce printing times in offices and homes that print in abundance. A fantastic choice for text documents and high-speed batch printing. Toners do cost more than inkjet cartridges. However, it will print out considerably more. The initial cost price of a laser printer looks like a taxing investment, but over time, the cost-per-page works out cheaper than inkjet printing.


All-in one Printers

An all-in-one printer is the amalgamation of a scanner, copier and printer in one device. They are available in both inkjet and laser varieties, offering the bonus from the reduced footprint, and the satisfaction of having a three in one printer. Some all-in-ones have a fax machine as well, which is extremely useful and the ideal printing solution for small or home offices, although of course faxing is very much becoming more and more outdated!


3D Printers

3D printers have recently become much more common and offer a diverse and innovative entry into prototyping and small-scale manufacturing. Whatever you design, you can make. This is great if you want to test parts before you manufacture expensive machining or maybe you want to design a custom phone case, or anything else that your mind thinks. A 3D printer makes once complex manufacturing easy and accessible.

As well as that, there is a plethora of extra features and jargon that you may not understand or even knew exists today!

Wi-Fi Direct/WirelessDirect:

Wi-Fi Direct provides a wireless connection between a printer and device, even if no Wi-Fi signal is present – perfect for homes and offices without a wireless network or in an office as a backup if the network fails.

AirPrint is an Apple technology that helps you create full-quality printed output without the need to download or install drivers. With AirPrint, it’s easy to print full quality photos and documents from your Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch without having to install additional software (drivers).

Google Cloud Print:

Google Cloud Print (GCP) is a service that allows you to print from any web-connected device. Google Cloud Print routes print jobs between your computer, smartphone, or tablet and sends it to an Internet-connected printer.


Near-field communication is a set of communication protocols that enable two electronic devices, one of which is usually a portable device such as a smartphone, to establish communication by bringing them within 4 cm of each other.Near Field Communication (NFC) is a new feature to printers.

Email Printing:

Settings for email notifications. You can print to any printer that is Email Print compatible printer from any device that can send email, such as your smartphone, tablet, computer, or mobile phone. To use this service, you need to register your printer and account to the brands account first.

Print Quality DPI:

DPI is used to describe the resolution number of dots per inch in a digital print and the printing resolution of a hard copy print dot gain, which is the increase in the size of the halftone dots during printing. This is caused by the spreading of ink on the surface of the media.

Its Movember at Ink N Toner UK!


moustache movemberIt is the 1st of November and that means for a lot of us out there it is Movember at Ink N Toner UK!  This is a time where we look help men in both their mental and physical health. During this month, anyone who can is encouraged to grow a moustache to raise awareness for various men’s issues


movember menHistory of Movember

It all got started in 1999 in Australia when a group of young men decided that the middle of summer was a fantastic time to grow a beard (seasons are backward down there, remember). It all started, as most great ideas do, in a local pub and quickly came to contain a group of 80 men dedicated to raising awareness for men’s health issues and spreading this around the world. While it started out just focusing on raising awareness for prostate cancer and depression, it would soon grow to include all men’s health issues.

Competitions for the greatest moustache are held around the world, with 21 national winners being selected, and then one of their number being immortalized as the International Man of Movember. Much has not stopped this movement, either, in spite of Scots College in Wellington, New Zealand attempting to suppress it by banning those men who were participating from end-of-the-year prizes from the school.

Today it is one of the most respected men’s health awareness organizations and has branches and participants all over the world. Everyone from sports teams to educational professionals can be found sporting a moustache during Movember, and on one notable occasion, a Boeing 737-800 that belonged to the Australian National Rugby Union Team!

How be a part of Movember

It all starts with throwing out your razor and letting your facial hair grow wild! Man or woman, or something less defined, it makes no difference! In Movember, if you can grow facial hair, it is time to let grow wild! Style it or leave it untamed, colour it or leave it natural, wax it or pomade it, whatever you do just make sure you spend Movember growing a magnificent moustache and beard. Movember is a great movement that has accomplished incredible things in the area of men’s health awareness!

moustache movemberIf you cannot grow a moustache do not fret, use the inks you buy from us at Ink N Toner UK to make your own! Just print this image out to get started!

So from us at Ink N Toner UK, happy moustache growing, and good luck on any money raising endeavours you may have.

Halloween is round the corner!


With six days to go until Halloween, we at Ink N Toner UK hope you are getting ready to be a part of the spooky season! We have a number of great ideas for our readers as to what you could possibly do for Halloween, but before all that we want to give you, a little history lesson in case you don’t fully know what Halloween is supposed to represent.

Halloween, also known as All Hallows Eve is a celebration observed in a number of countries every year on the 31st of October. Traditionally it is a time dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints, martyrs and the all faithful departed.

Halloween activities usually include carving pumpkins into Jack o Lanterns, lighting bonfire, apple bobbing, attending Halloween costume parties and of course trick-or-treating! For Christians observances of all hallows eve, including attending church services and lighting candles on graves of the dead, remain popular to this day.

So you must be thinking, what can I do to celebrate? Well Ink N Toner UK is here to help! We have great ideas to help you, and even ways to use paper to help you boost the spook factor this Halloween!

Create paper masks

There’s a hell of a lot that you can do with just coloured paper, some glue and some scissors! If you don’t feel like any of the regular masks like scream, or Jason from Friday the 13th is ticking your spooky tastes, try making your own, it’s fun for the kids and gives your creative freedom over your costumes!

Create trick-or-treat baskets

You could even attempt to make your own trick-or-treat baskets to put your sweets in. Depending on your creative choices, you could easily make them as colourful and spooky as you would like! You can even use the inks you buy from us to print out patterns you could use on those baskets

Halloween costumes

Of course this is a given, in Halloween you get the chance to wear whatever monster or character you want without being judged so go ahead and go all out! You could be spooky monsters like Frankenstein or the mummy, to movie characters like the ones above!

So from us at Ink N Toner UK have a fantastically scary Halloween! We hope you get treated more than you get tricked!

Its National Spreadsheet day today!


Today is National Spreadsheet day! And InkNTonerUK are celebrating!

A holiday that is more likely going to appeal to IT Techheads than the general public, Spreadsheet Day commemorates the date that VisiCalc, the first spreadsheet program for PC’s, was released (October 17th 1979). Since it started, Spreadsheet Day has grown into a day where the advantages and aggravations of working with spreadsheet software are celebrated.

Celebrating spreadsheet day

It is all to do with recognizing how ubiquitous spreadsheets are for all of us in the modern day and age as well as how much it helps us get by in our work settings daily, without spreadsheets, compiling lists or making calculations at work for massive amounts of products or lists would be a complete drudgery to do. Every business uses them to manage their books, and data for everything including names and phone numbers of members and much more.

Why Spreadsheets are useful.

It is useful for anyone to try to learn how to make/use a spreadsheet. It can be very useful for day-to-day life, not just business. For example, being a parent and planning day-to-day events in your head can normally be very difficult, so why not use spreadsheets to help you! You can easily map out shopping and to-do lists for you and the family. You could even make a spreadsheet calendar for the year. The possibilities are endless!


You can use the inks you buy from InknTonerUK to print out whatever you decide to make with your spreadsheets we have many great priced inks, original or compatible, you will be sure to find the best prices for your inks. From us at InkNTonerUK, have a great spreadsheet day!

Inktober in October!


It’s October which means for you art heads its Inktober! These 31 days enable everyone and anyone to let their creative juices flow, and at Ink N Toner UK, we want to tell you all there is to know!

What is Inktober?

Inktober is a month long art challenge created by artist Jake Parker. It focuses on improving skill and developing positive drawing habits. Every day for the month of October, anyone participating in the Inktober challenge creates an ink drawing and posts it online. Remember to use the hashtags #inktober and #inktober2018 if you want your art appreciated by everyone.

Everyday a new word in a list of prompts are given, for example todays prompt is “spell”. This prompt can be interpreted in many different ways; you could choose to do calligraphy with this, or maybe go down the harry potter route of the word. There is so much you can do with each prompt and the possibilities are endless!

Inktober rules.

1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).

2) Post it*

3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2018

4) Repeat


Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. Whatever you decide, just be consistent with it. Inktober is about growing, improving, and forming positive habits, so the more consistent you are the better.

Does it have to be Ink or can I draw digitally?

Initially, the challenge of Inktober was focused on traditional inking. Although learning how to ink digitally is a skill separate from traditional inking it is no less valid. If you want to improve your digital inking skills, then doing Inktober digitally is a great way to challenge yourself. Just be cool to those who want to use traditional inks. In addition, traditional inkers, be cool to those who are trying to improve with their digital inking.

You can use the ink you buy from us to print out the list of prompts. As well as any digital work you have done, as well as that, you can use them to scan your drawings so you can post then online on your social media.

So from us at Ink N Toner UK happy drawing and have an even better October, especially with Halloween on the way.

Its World Tourism day!


Happy World Tourism Day!

On the 27th of September the world comes together to celebrate world tourism day. With each year coming with a new theme. This year the theme is “Tourism and the Digital Transformation”, this is a unique opportunity for us to raise awareness on the potential contribution that digital technology has and will make to sustainable tourism development.

Its purpose is to foster awareness among the international community of the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic value. The event seeks to address global challenges outlined in the United Nations Millennium Development Goals and to highlight the contribution the tourism sector can make in reaching these goals.

The timing of World Tourism Day is particularly appropriate in that it comes at the end of the high season in the northern hemisphere and the beginning of the season in the southern hemisphere, when tourism is on the minds of millions of people worldwide.

At Ink N Toner UK, we want to help to celebrate this occasion by giving you ideas on what you can do!

Print your own logos.

The WTD logo and banner are also online and can be downloaded for the web and printing. Feel free to upload the logo on your website, linking back to the World Tourism Day page. you could also use the logo to make your own WTD-themed materials, such as t-shirts, stickers, posters etc. You can get all the ink you need from us at

Saving energy.

If you are a traveler, simple steps such as switching off the lights in your hotel rooms and unplugging appliances when not in use can make a huge difference. Save energy and water by taking a shower instead of a bath, or choosing not to have your bed linen and towels changed every day.

Taking a trip.

What better way to celebrate WTD than enjoying being a tourist yourself? Whether it is around the world or within your own country, with your family or your classmates, read the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism before you go to make sure your trip is as sustainable and responsible as possible.

On previous WTDs, a number of destinations and sites have offered free entry or special discounts to the public, so look out for special offers!

From us at Ink N Toner UK, happy world tourism day!

How to clean a print head!


At Ink N Toner UK, we understand that an awful lot of you will occasionally run into difficulties when using your printers. From updates, restricting what kind of inks you may use to tips and tricks to help you navigate your printers various functions. While these can be found on the troubleshooting section of our site, there are other things that we have not included that should be talked about. So today, we want to talk about what you should do when your printer’s print head requires cleaning.

First, we want to explain the reasons why a print head will need cleaning:

  • Lack of printing – If the printer sits around for long periods of time the ink can dry inside the print head and result in clogged nozzles. If you want to avoid this make sure you use your printer once in a while so it doesn’t clog up at all


  • Not changing cartridges when prompted by the printer – this is also a leading cause of print head clogs. If you print for too long on a near empty cartridge, you will start introducing air into the print head, which in turn helps dry any remaining ink inside the print head and results in clogged nozzles. It is a no brainer really, when your ink runs too low change it for a fresh one, we have many inks for you to buy from us at !


  • Using low-grade generic cartridges – low-grade cartridges with the wrong ink viscosity can also quickly clog the print head. Make sure that you purchase your non-genuine cartridges from a reputable source. Like Ink N Toner UK for example! We make sure we use the best quality in our compatible inks, so you will not be disappointed.


  • Dirty or faulty purge pump or pads – If your printer has very dirty pads on the purge pump then the printer will be unable to effectively run cleaning cycles. During the automatic cleaning cycles that your printer does periodically, large amounts of ink are sucked through the print head and out into the waste pad. This helps to clear any dried ink or residue that may cause print head blockage. If either the pump is faulty or the pads very dirty then little cleaning occurs and blockage is highly likely.


  • Cartridges not breathing correctly –Sounds odd to say on paper but cartridges require the removal of the breather tape so the ink can freely pass through into the print head. If one or more cartridges do not have, the breather tape fully removed then the ink will not flow properly from the cartridge and into the print head.

So how do you clean a print head?

  • To successfully clean a print head manually you’ll need some basic supplies. Gather a bottle of water and a lint-free cloth or a paper towel.


  • Make sure the printer is off and unplugged to prevent damage to the device and yourself.


  • Open the printer, locate the cartridges and remove these.


  • Remove the tray the cartridges sit in – this is the print head unit. It will have several holes in the bottom.


  • Some printer models, such as a HP, will have the print head on the cartridge, if this is the case, it won’t have a tray to clean. So, move onto step 5 and 6.


  • Lightly dampen the cloth with water.


  • Gently brush this over the foil, electrical contact area with the damp cloth until no new ink shows up on the cloth. Remove all dried ink debris from the print head contacts, edge and ramps. Make sure you clean the electrical contacts inside the printer as well.


  • If you’ve removed the print head unit, soak in a bowl of shallow water for around five minutes. This will loosen any dried ink. Dab the print head unit on a paper towel to remove any ink and moisture. Make sure it is completely dry before inserting back into the printer.

After everything is cleaned and back in place, perform a nozzle check to see the quality of the printing.

So now you know! We hope we have helped in your printer cleaning endeavors.

Top 3 Printers here at Ink N Toner UK


Today we at Ink N Toner UK are doing a different type of blog today. Sometimes we know our customers may not always know what the best printers are, we get it, and there are loads of printers to go through. Therefore, we want to help you by narrowing down to a top three of what we think are the best printers nowadays.

  1. Canon PIXMA TS9150

Image result for Canon PIXMA TS9150

If you are looking for a great all-round printer, which does not skimp on print quality for your photographs, then we won’t be disappointed by what the PIXMA TS9150, Canon’s flagship printer, has to offer. While it is certainly more expensive than some of the cheap two in one printers you can pick up, it is not a bad price for something, which produces high quality prints, especially if you only need to print at A4 or below.

  1. Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4630

The WorkForce Pro WF-4630 is a solid printer for small businesses and workgroups given its fast print speeds, solid print qualities and remote printing and scanning capabilities. Using the larger XL print cartridges, the WF-4630 delivers economical print costs that rival laser printers.

  1. Canon Pixma TS8050

Great for the traveling professional or someone who needs a small printer for occasional use, printing photos or using the scanner function. It’s a bit pricey to buy and run, but the flexibility and quality of the printouts is excellent.

The summer holidays are almost over!


Its been a weird summer holiday this year in 2018, but at the same time its been the most enjoyable (for some) we were blessed with scorching temperatures and even greater occasions, things like The Muller 2018 games, religious occasions such as Eid, and also recently the great Reading and Leeds festival! What ever summer has been for you, we at Ink N Toner UK hope you have had a great one!

But now once again we’ll have to say goodbye to the summer and welcome in the autumn months which also means-to those of you who are students especially- that its time to buckle under and begin work for the new academic year!

This week we will have a 10% off of all compatible ink products(expires 7th of September), meaning it will be easier for you to stock up on those inks you will need to print all that coursework and homework assignments with!

And don’t think we are forgetting the adults, all our deals and low low prices still apply to you! and you can even lower them further if you use the points you accrue with us!

Eid al-Adha 2018


It’s Tuesday the 21st of August and this year, it means that it is Eid! For Muslims across the globe, this means today marks the end of the month long fast of Ramadan and the start of a great feast that can last up to three whole days in some countries! Many Muslims also use this holiday period to attend communal prayers, listen to a khutba (sermon) and give out charity in the form of food. At Ink N Toner UK we want to make sure our customers have the best Eid possible so we want to give you some suggestions as to what you

Food you can make/try during Eid.

Red Meat

Most Muslims will consume red meat in some capacity, usually lamb, goat or cow. The animal will be divided into three parts, with one part given to the poor, one shared out amongst relatives and the final third cooked and eaten by the family. The meat is often roasted, barbecued or cooked in a curry.


This traditional dish is popular in Middle Eastern countries – it consists of fried vegetables, meat (usually chicken, turkey or lamb) and rice cooked together in a pot which is then flipped upside down to serve as a large savoury cake.

Rice and Couscous

From chicken biryani with saffron and sultanas to apricot-spiked couscous, grain dishes are an essential part of an Eid al-Adha celebration and often served to accompany the stews, tagine and curries.


In Afghanistan, Bolani is a popular food during Eid – it consists of flatbread stuffed with an array of fillings, from potatoes to green pepper, and is usually baked or fried to create a thin crust, before being served with yoghurt. Afghanistan Eid celebrations tend to be quite child-focused, and the whole family can enjoy bolani.

As well as that, you could use the inks you buy from from us to print out your own Eid related printables.

HP’s new firmware update.


HP have released a new firmware update for their printers. This means that any cartridges manufactured before April last year may not be compatible with the HP Deskjet 2600 series, Deskjet ink advantage 2600, 5000, and 5200, HP Envy 5000 series, HP Officejet 5200  series printers made after may the 1st 2018, although the new cartridges will work with both old and new printers.

 hp compatible inkThis will also pose a risk of locking out any compatible cartridges we sell to you, as they will be cast into the “old” category.

If you want to continue, using your compatible cartridges for the above models is to make sure you do not accept the update when it appears on your printer another thing you can do is set your printer so it does not automatically load updates onto your printer. If you want to look at this in more detail, you can find our troubleshooting guide on our website.

HP’s guidance in finding out if cartridges are the updated model, or the old model with the same number, is to look for a line above the list of compatible printers on the side of the cartridge’s packaging, with the line signifying the updated cartridges.

You may want to check out the warranty end date printed on the cartridge itself against a list on HP’s website, to determine the status of the cartridge.

belgian flag

French Fries are not actually French.

You may think that French fries are from France, but they are actually from Belgium. It was during the late 17th century that some smart Belgian villagers got the idea to slice up a potato and fry it the same way they fry fish (Who would have thought it!) and Voila! The French fry was born. During World War 1 American, soldiers stationed in Belgium were introduced to these tasty fried potatoes and they then named them French Fries. Hence why they were not created in France!

fish and chips

What you can make with French Fries.

Today, people all around the world enjoy French Fries. It’s a staple in quite a few American dishes, paired with things like Hotdogs and Cheeseburgers. In the UK, it is served with Cod in a dish known as Fish and Chips. In Canada, French Fries are covered with cheese curds and brown gravy in a dish known as poutine! As you can see, French fries is a very versatile comfort food!

Other Facts.

  • Americans eat over 30 pounds of French fries per person a year
  • French Fries are a good source of Potassium
  • Thomas Jefferson had his own French fry recipe
  • In Mexico, fries are often served with hot sauce and lemon juice
  • In the U.K., fries are called chips
  • In the U.S., chips mean potato chips – which are crisps in the U.K.
  • Sugar is often added to fries as well as salt
  • Fries come in over a 100 different varieties

How to Celebrate.

All you have to do to celebrate French Friday is pick your favourite French fry dish and eat it! It is as simple as that, and in some shops, it might even be free! Alternatively, if you like to do it yourself use the paper and ink you buy from us to make your own paper cones or boxes to put the fries in!

Have a great day from us at Ink N Toner UK!

Epson printer

Today at Ink n Toner UK, we want to talk to our valued customers about a common feature that exists within printers everywhere. The dreaded printer updates. We are here to let you know the risks that are involved when updating your printers.

Printer drivers across all printers’ brands never seem that bad when you look at them. They normally are just there to fix any bugs or any other outstanding problems that have come up in the printer. That sounds great. So why are Ink N Toner UK trying to say otherwise?

While we think it is great that printing companies are paying attention to their customers, these updates often come as firmware updates that end up preventing your printers from being able to use any non-original cartridges. This means you are forced to buy their more expensive branded cartridges.

We believe that in the interest of our customers that these underhanded practises when it comes to brands like HP or Epson are very unfair on our customers. Therefore, we would like to tell you how you could avoid this or at least limit the chances of updates like these being automatically installed on your printer.

Regarding the recent Epson update, there isn’t currently a sure fire way of going back on yourself if you have downloaded it however it can be prevented by simply going into the software updates settings of your Epson printer and selecting “never”. This way you can control if your printer installs any more updates and you can keep using the compatible cartridges you buy from us!

In future, DO NOT ever accept any printer updates, your printer should be fine without them and you will not have any drawbacks to suffer with.

Create your own kite

Yes it is possible to make once you have a little know-how and the willingness to DIY (do it yourself)!  Use the inks you buy from us to printed out your own custom designs onto pieces of printed paper. A little bit of tape, string, sticks and origami later and bobs your uncle! Your very own kite.

Go to the beach

If you can, definitely check out the beaches, in this weather the sand and sea would be bliss. You could even take that handmade printed kite there as there would most likely be enough wind to keep it in the air! Obviously you should take those buckets and spades to make those all important sand castles, you could even stick a paper flag in there to represent you you are rooting for in the world cup!

We hope you continue to have a great summer from us at Ink N Toner UK!

FIFA President Sepp Blatter exclaimed it was the heart and soul of the country!

32 countries will compete in the 2018 World Cup, with Iceland and Panama making their debuts in the competition. Slovakia were the last team to make it past the group stage on their debut in 2010.

The EU and its new plastic waste legislation.


The EU Commission have laid out a new set of rules in a bid to tackle the issue that is our plastic waste, and the impact it is having on our environment. The new rules are aimed at single use plastics specifically, and has been described by the European commission as proportionate and tailored.

Plastic currently takes up 85% of all marine pollution, with devastating consequences for wildlife (in the ocean and out) as well as human health, with micro plastics entering our food chain and we are none the wiser. As well as this facing the issue head on from an ecological perspective, the EU commission’s new directive aims to bring about more opportunities economically, bringing in more opportunities for innovation, competitiveness, and job creation.

The single use items covered by the new legislation include but are not limited to things like, cotton buds, cutlery, crockery, straws, stirrers, and balloons sticks. All of which will now be required by law to use sustainable materials in their production.

At InknTonerUK, we already make sure that we do our part for the greater environment by recycling all of our waste ink and toner cartridges. This is to prevent the harm they could end up doing to the environment, and the money we make from doing so goes to the charity we support called Caring for kids.

Make sure you do your bit for the environment too; we all can help play a part in our worlds safe and clean for the future!

At lightspeed it’s here again. Star Wars Day is upon us so let’s be the first to say, “May the 4th be with you!”

The much loved and legendary film series has been going strong since 1977, an incredible 41 years!

The first time the much loved phrase “May the 4th be with you” was used dates back to when the then newly elected Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was congratulated by the London Evening News on her election win.

The phrase is still said to this day and is meant to of course be conveyed as a wishing of good luck.

Summer image

After a shockingly cold winter, the sun has finally reared its head over the UK and we at Ink N Toner UK are living for it! Whilst we are cooped up here at work, we want to help everyone make the most of this sweet (and most likely short) streak of hot weather!

With temperatures approaching 28 degrees on Thursday the 19th, it means that it has been the warmest day in this month in almost 70 years. The reason for the sudden increase in temperature is due to warm air rising off the coast of Portugal. (Thanks Portugal!)

This is a great opportunity for everyone to take advantage of the summer weather so we want to help you out a bit, in case you do not have any good ideas to be going with. Do bear in mind some of these ideas will be mainly for printables, meaning that if you do not have it, you will need to purchase ink. Luckily, for you we have that in abundance so you need not worry!

ice lollies

Frozen foods

During this mini heatwave, it is always a good idea that you stay hydrated and that you keep cool and refreshed. We recommend you stock up on cool beverages and many ice-lollies. If you are a D.I.Y kind of person, you may want to consider making your own ice-lollies. If you need to know how to do this, we have instructions on how to make your own ice-lollies.

barbecue grill


If you really have the time and you want to make the most out of the summer vibe we are getting. Having a barbecue is a great way to achieve this all you need is family, friends, and a grill to cook the meat on!



Picnics are a great way to relax and pass the time, all the while catching the rays just grab some food, drink and a large cloth step out into the great outdoors!

origami fansPrintable Fans

Why buy fans when you can design your own and print it out! Keep yourself and others cool in this heat!

From us at Ink N Toner UK enjoy what is left of the summery weather and have fun with it!



Friday the 13th!


Friday the 13th Today is Friday the 13th. If you are not in the least bit superstitious, this day probably does not mean anything to you and you are only excited about the fact that it’s Friday and you do not have to work on the weekend (I know I am!)

If you do have a superstitious leaning, you have probably just looked at your calendar, clocked its Friday the 13th and thought no more about it.

 black cat friday the 13thIf however you are like everyone else, and are very superstitious I’m sure you will be on high alert employing every trick you know so you don’t incur the universe’s wrath. There are many different ideas about where this spooky date came from; some believe it dates back to the last supper, where 13 people were there the night before Jesus Christ’s crucifixion. (Which also happened to have apparently fell on Friday the 13th) Whilst others suggest that, it was born from the disappearance of a navy ship called HMS Friday, which set sail on Friday the 13th, never to be seen again.

At Ink N Toner UK, we know how people get on this particular day so we want to reassure that no matter how spooky your days get, we will always be here to provide you with the inks you need to get through them! We are pretty sure after you hear that you’ll be feeling lucky in no time!

The Ink Cartridge scam.


Ink Scam A YouTube video from Gregory Austin McConnell has surfaced and recently gone viral. He highlights how original Ink Cartridges are so expensive when compared to the printers you buy. He first clocked onto this while working in a technical support role, when replacement cartridges with a manufacture cost of 0.23 cents end up retailing for a whopping price of $59.95.

McConnell describes printer ink as one of the most expensive liquids in the world per gallon. He then goes on to use the various tactics OEM’s (Original Equipment Manufacturers) use to prevent competitor branded or compatible cartridges from being used instead of their products.

As well as the methods used by the OEM’s to force people into buying more ink despite them not actually needing to, he talks about the fact that most printers now stop working when only one colour cartridge expires even if you only wanted to print in black. The reason for that is that even if you only want to print in black, the printer will use a little bit of cyan ink for a different shade of black. Why they do that we have no clue!

Towards the end of the 12-minute video he takes his printer and destroys it with a sledgehammer all the while calling for a revolution against the OEM’s that charge you exorbitant prices for inks.

 inkntoneruk compatible inksAt InkNTonerUK we have our own high quality compatible inks, which are not only cheaper and better value for money, but they work just as well as the Original products. If you want to see for yourself how good our inks are check them out on our website

Stephen Hawking, a brilliant cosmologist.


Born on the 8th of January 1942. Stephen Hawking, a brilliant mind and a great scientist who overcame a debilitating disease to pursue his goals, probing into the mysteries of the universe, had sadly died on the 14th of March 2018.

Hawking suffered from ALS a neurodegenerative disease, which is usually fatal within a few years. To put that into perspective, Stephen was diagnosed with the disease in 1963, when he was just 21! The disease left him wheelchair-bound and paralyzed. He remained very optimistic in his life and despite his shortcomings, he said this. “I try to lead as normal a life as possible, and not think about my condition, or regret the things it prevents me from doing, which are not that many.” This clearly shows the drive he had and that even something like the ALS disease did not keep him from his goals of discovering the secrets of our universe.

We at Ink N Toner UK and the rest of the world are sad to see him pass. However, he will remain a key figure in the world of science for the rest of time.

Starting up a 3D Printing Business.


THINKER BOT 3d printer3D printing is a fast growing industry, with many people discovering its benefits. Last week we gave you pointers on how to accrue money within the 2D printing industry. So this week we will let you know on how to do that with 3D printing, what you need to learn to get started and the different avenues you can go down with this currently lucrative area.

  • What is 3D printing?

For those of you not aware, 3D printing is when you take a digital design (blueprint) and you essentially make a 3D copy of it. These models are normally made of a plastic filament, which is melted and then guided along by a nozzle in the printer. This allows you to make very complicated designs in a shorter time without the need for expensive parts. The images below show you the different variations you can design and make. Now that you know what 3D, printing is we are going to let you know how to get started!

Thors hammer 3d printed


  • Create your own designs

Start by learning from free CAD (computer-aided designs) tools like Trimble, sketchup or TinkerCAD. Many beginners are surprised by how quickly they are able to create a complex looking design after a few tutorials. Sophisticated and innovative designs can be made with these tools. Just make sure you use the various tutorials provided online when/if you need to.

Buy a 3D Printer

The first step is to select a printer that has the right balance of cost, quality, versatility and ease of use. At Ink N Toner UK, we have a wide range of 3D printers for you to buy. For example, we have the XYZPrinting da Vinci 2.0A Duo 3D Printer for only £426.66!

We hope we helped you get started on the way to 3D printer stardom! For anymore on Printers or 3D printers, visit us at our website at!

China’s new environmental audit. Is it as good as it sounds?


Companies that manufacture products in china are now in hot water thanks to the country’s environmental rules that aim to tackle heavy polluters. Many factories countrywide have been penalized and are either being shut down or are in the process of being shut down in the wake of these new developments.

After China’s huge industrial and manufacturing surge over the last few decades it is now unfortunately home to some of the world’s most polluted cities, with its main issues surrounding its groundwater, and more so the effects it will end up having on drinking water.

China has had environmental laws in place since 2013 but they were not as strict with punishments for those who did not follow those rules. Now factories are being forced to follow suit or face their production being shut down completely.

According to global Sources plastic, printing, textiles, chemicals and a plethora of other industries have been affected by these changes.

For many factories though these environmental audits are not very helpful in letting them know what constitutes as compliance. This means they are not even aware if they are at risk of being shut down or not. In addition, even if a factory is closed, there is no clear timeline of when, or if, they can start production again.

At InknTonerUK we pride ourselves on the fact that we find ways to recycle previously used ink cartridges. Those empty cartridges will also help raise funds for our partner charity Caring 4 Kids because cartridges that can be used again have a value.

By recycling your inkjet cartridges with us, as well as doing your bit for the environment, you will also be helping the charity and therefore making a difference to the lives of thousands of children.

Top five printed Xmas Ads of 2017


Chistmas draws ever closer at InknTonerUK. We’ve given all of you advice on how to make this Christmas a good one and we hope we have helped a lot in that regard. Wed like to show you examples of printed adverts we thought were really great this year in the run up to to the 25th of December.

Starbucks xmas ad

  1. Starbucks

A popular coffee shop for many Christmas shoppers all over the world, Starbucks uses this time of year to celebrate with their warm festive cups. Along with that, they get even more creative by topping each of the coffee cups with a cream swirl that ultimately takes the shape of a Christmas tree! This overall design is great due to the simple yet effective way this advert uses colour. The warm earthen background and cups along with the white cream helps bring out the Christmas feeling that much more.Quality street Quality Street

There’s no other snack filler on Christmas day like a box or tin of chocolates. Quality Street is one of the more popular choccy choices, in this Advert they have gone for the simple yet effective trick of spreading the chocolate around in the shape of a reindeers head.Harvey nichs

  1. Harvey Nichols

This one is quite funny as it is very relatable, there is nothing more awkward on Christmas day( and many other special occasions) of trying to act like you are happy with a rubbish present you have received. Harvey Nichols have used this to urge customers to not make the “gift face” by telling you to shop with them to find the perfect gift this Christmas.

  1. Greenpeace

While everyone around the world will be looking forward to presents food and parties. Greenpeace has used the occasion to reminds us about the dangers of global warming and the effect it will have on us at Christmas season. A snow globe disturbingly shows a completely melted snowman left with nothing but hat buttons and a carrot. Really thought provoking. pedigree

  1. Pedigree

And lastly Dog food brand Pedigree have warned santa claus that he may meet a four legged friend or two during his annual trip down chimneys around the world.

Seen as this is our last blog for this year. From us at InknTonerUK, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year!

D.I.Y this Christmas!


christmas printer

At InknTonerUK we are getting ready for Christmas (We really are! We have a snowman with a hat and everything!) and for the last few years we like to think we are very knowledgeable when it comes to what you can do with paper and a printer in this festive season. So, here we are bequeathing that wisdom to you, the customer. Here is a list of various printables that can get you started in the run up to Christmas!

  1. Gift boxes: Yes gift boxes, if you have any small gifts like jewellery, or maybe you need a place to stash those mini cholates in consider making a foldable Christmas themed gift box. They don’t cost much to make but at the same time it comes across as very thoughtful and gives that personal touch to gift giving!
  2. Xmas Envelopes: Using those plain old white envelopes to put your card in really makes the card itself that much more underwhelming. Add some xmas flair to it, really make it your own and see for yourself how much of a difference it makes to people’s faces.

Customization envelopes

  1. Tags: Wrappers in themselves always look very good. They are supposed to look fun and exciting. So why not print out your own tags to not only personalise yourprezzies but to make your gift look that much more enticing!customizable tags
  1. Origami: If you really want to test your creativity how about using the origami technique to make flowers, hats, reindeer and much much more! This is a great activity so bring the whole family into it. Christmas day will seem that much better when the whole family has been a part of the preparation.Image result for christmas origami

Microsoft’s new update and how its effecting Epson printers


Microsoft affecting epson printers with latest updateIt has been reported that the November update for Microsoft has affected the overall functionality of some Epson models. Users have mostly reported issues with the Epson LX-310, Epson FX890 and the Epson LQ680. A bug in the update is causing Epson SIDM and Dot matrix computers to be unable to print on x86 and x64-based systems. At InknTonerUK we understand that this may end up affecting some of our customers so we’d like to offer what we know on this issue and how you may want to go about resolving it.

Microsoft themselves have confirmed the issue but have yet to release a fix for it. The issue also isn’t caused by printer drivers, meaning installing different drivers for the Epson printers will not rectify the issue.

You will know if you have this error when your print jobs are terminated with the error message “Win32 error code returned by the processor. 2147500037”.

Microsoft and Epson have determined the cause of the issue and are working on a solution so if you want to be able to use your printer there is a solutions that can help, windows users and admins fix the issue on afflicted machines.

The first option is to go into your control panel and Uninstall the following updates. Be aware that they may have patched security issues on windows machines.

  • KB4048955 for Windows 10 version 1709
  • KB4048954 for Windows 10 Version 1703
  • KB4048958 for Windows 8.1
  • KB4048960 for Windows 7 SP1
  • KB4048953 for Windows 10 Version 1607
  • KB4048957 for Windows Server 2012 R2


Apart from that you may just end up having to wait until the next update rolls round to be able to use your printer again. If you have any other issues regarding inks or printers you have bought from us don’t hesitate to contact us on our website where we have a chat feature you can use to get in touch with us. Safe Printing!

Extending the life of your printer.


Extending your printer life

Here at InknTonerUK we are passionate about printers and inks. We are also very keen to help our customers keep up their printers longevity and to help avoid common problems. So in this blog we’ll give you a few tips to help you do just that.

  1. A) Cleaning your printers interior

Keeping your printer clear of debris and excess paper and dust is important to keep your printer functioning the best that it can. To do this you should open up the printer, look for the excess and gently wipe it away from the interior. You could also use a can of compressed air to blow the dust from the printer. You need only do this once a month or so.

  1. B) Keeping your printer in standby mode

Finally, turning your printer on and off at the mains can have a negative impact so keep it on standby mode to prevent cartridges from becoming dry and the print head becoming clogged.

If you follow these steps you will drastically extend the lifespan of your printer.

  1. C) Keep the manual feed tray closed when not in use

Make sure when you aren’t using your printer, to keep the feed tray closed. This is to prevent you from knocking over the printer and any other breakages.

  1. D) Replace cartridges before they dry up

Make sure not to wait until the print cartridge is completely dried up before replacing them as a completely dry ink cartridge can lead to wear and tear on your print head (if your printer has one that is separate to the cartridge that is!).

  1. E) Take care when replacing a cartridge

Cartridges need to be replaced quite frequently, but you must be very careful when doing so. Pay careful attention to the instructions and avoid touching the bottom of the cartridge, as doing so can reduce the quality of the print, while also lowering your printers overall longevity.

Epson announces their 3D printing expansion plan


Epson announces their 3D printing planEpson has announced that they would be expanding their operations globally, along with plans to increase their global revenue “by more than 50 percent” across the next seven years. A new industrial printer will be one of the main products releases they are eager to push into production over the next few years. Epson are very keen in wanting to capitalize of the interesting growth of this market.

The company itself has a very strong grasp over the manufacturing of 2D printers, with both laser and inkjet models having great success with consumers  as well as businesses. Their latest industrial model (the WF-C20590) can deliver printing speeds upwards of 100 pages per minute (ppm) and the company still plans to double this speed with their next iteration.

Five years prior, Epson’s president Usui initially stated that Epson would be heading towards the 3d printing market, but at that time the consumer market for these devices were too niche and wasn’t worth much investment. However the tables have turned, the technology has grown, and 3D printing is becoming a norm for a wide range of professional and industrial applications.

Other avenues Epson are looking to consider include robotics and smart wearables. The company plans to introduce smart glasses with an augmented reality display for commercial and industrial use in Southeast Asia in the fourth quarter. they have also recently acquired Orient watch as part of its high valued watch segment for sensor-based watches for healthcare, sport and fashion.

At InknTonerUK we have a wide range of Epson Printers and inks that are of high quality, as well as being great value for money.

Remember Remember…. Bonfire night, safety and having fun!


Bonfire night is fast approaching and as you scramble around trying to buy those last minute fireworks, there are crucial things you must remind yourself about in order to keep accidents to a minimum. The main thing being the firework code. At Inkntoneruk we want to keep our customers safe so In this blog, we will go through 5 rules in this code that if followed, will make your night go off without a hitch.

  1. Plan your firework display ahead of time to make it safe and enjoyable.

You must make sure that everything is properly organised before you start your display. For example you will need to make sure the location you will be lighting the fireworks is a wide open space where you are able to stand far enough back and when there wouldn’t be any flammable object nearby that could pose a risk.

  1. Keep fireworks in a box and use them one at a time.

Don’t take all the fireworks out of the boxes at once. If you light one sparks will come out and if there are exposed fireworks around they could ignite and cause a fire hazard. Keep the unused fireworks in their respective packaging and well away from when you will light them.

  1. Keep naked flames, including cigarettes, away from fireworks

This may be the most obvious, but it’s extremely important to remember. Both of these things are very dangerous in this situation. And if you want to keep the risk of accidents low you must remember this.

  1. When using sparklers, place them into a bucket of water when you have finished

Avoid any potential risks with the sparklers you use by placing them in water once you have finished with them. Even if they appear to be finished placing them on a surface could result in an accident.

  1. Have Fun!

Yes you need to be super careful during bonfire night but it shouldn’t stop you from having fun! Get into the spirit of things by making posters and other decorations with your children or siblings. And at Inkntoneruk we can help you with all your printing needs during bonfire night. And whether you need ink or any other printing related services we have your back. So from us, have fun, stay safe and enjoy the festivities!

ETIRA responds to HP’s misleading info about remanufactured cartridges!


The European Toner & Inkjet Remanufacturers Association responds to Hewlett Packard after they released a leaflet with misleading information about remanufactured cartridges

ETIRA responds to recent HP flyer on cartridges
HP has issued a new leaflet entitled “The truth about clone cartridges” where it warns of the use of clones, remanufactured and counterfeit cartridges. In the leaflet it states “used HP toner cartridges that are emptied, refilled and resold by other manufacturers do not adhere to quality, safety or environmental standards”.

While the leaflet has some merit, the comments regarding remanufactured cartridges are misleading and inaccurate.

Businesses working in the remanufacturing industry are required to comply with regulations and standards and the WEEE directive (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) is a perfect example. The WEEE directive sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for all types of electrical goods. Another fine example is ETIRA (European Toner and Inkjet Remanufacturers Association) which has set out a clear code of conduct for its members to “guarantee clients a high quality competitive and environmentally friendly product and service”.

ETIRA’s response to HP’s leaflet is as follows:

“General marketing speak is OK, but you cannot say things that are not true. ETIRA regrets that HP’s new product marketing material is again lowering the bar. Their September 2017 flyer on printer cartridges may be generally correct on clones and counterfeits, but speaks nonsense on remanufactured cartridges: it has a baseless generalization which gets it wrong on all three counts: quality, safety and environment.”
“ETIRA will reach out to HP management to stress that the flyer is misleading and constitutes false advertising, and must be reworded.”

Do you want to create your own scary T-Rex illusion!


T-rex illusion

Do you want to be imaginative and have fun with illusions? How about you print off your own T-Rex today by going through the instructions and be creative. All you have to do is watch the video below to make a scary dinosaur which will always be around wherever you go! Ready to blow your minds with an illusion check the video out by watching it below.

This is how the illusion works:

This is the instructions you should follow to create the T-rex dinosaur:

What you will need to make your own frightening T-Rex illusion:

  1. You can use any printer to print out the cut-out. If you have ran out of cartridges you can order them from Ink N Toner UK where you get the best quality ink and at the same time you save money…what a bargain hey!
  2. 1 x Piece Of Paper
  3. 1 x Scissor
  4. 1 x Cello-tape or if you prefer glue

To make your T-Rex illusion all you have to do is print off the images in this page and create the T-Rex chosen from your liking. From a click of a button you can start creating your T-Rex illusion by cutting it out and building it up with your stationary which is required (from above). As soon as you finish you can leave it anywhere you want to fool your friends and family. When you move, it will create an illusion that the T-Rex’s head is moving and is following you. This is awesome to play with. It is very fun you can go back or fourth side to side and it will follow you around. It is like looking at an object and the head is turning, looking straight back at you. This T-Rex illusion is suitable for any age as it brings fun to your family and friends.

When making it you can also try out different designs, however if you are willing to try out your own designs (which will be a  lot fun) please be careful and follow the steps properly otherwise the illusion may not work. The fun part is you can create your own creature for example a giraffe, lion, tiger or elephant. To make your scary creatures stand out, we recommend you use cartridges from Ink N Toner UK as they provide you with best quality inks. If you want to make it as a kid toy for your kids to play, don’t scare them with a T-Rex you might want to go for something more friendly and suitable for a child. You can use the illusion for anything such as placing it on a window so when people look past the T-Rex, it make scare them as the T-Rex head is moving with you. The T-Rex illusion can also be used for pranks on YouTube e.g. Get a life size T-Rex or a different design and frighten the life out of the people. This will be an amazing prank to play on your friends and entertain your viewers.

Halloween is coming up, so this T-REX illusion can be the perfect gift to put on your window or outside your house even at parties to give a good scare. You can use any design you want such as a zombie, Frankenstein, mummy and other scary monsters to give you the creeps. All illusion goes great with Halloween.

If you are not keen on the normal green colour T-Rex maybe go for the red colour or purple colour as it looks more exciting , but if you are scared and you are a lover of pets create your own illusions with cut-outs of cats, dogs, rabbits or even your favourite animal.

Donald Trump is surely the most outspoken, outrageous and downright politically incorrect United States of America president that the world has ever seen.

It’s fair to say that he divides opinion all over the world as well as all over the United States, but surely the one word he cannot be described as is “dull”.

So we decided here at to poke some fun at The D by listing our favourite 10 most outrageous Trump quotes. We are totally sure that there will be many many more to come, but these are our favourites so far:

1. “We are going to have an unbelievable, perhaps record-setting turnout for the inauguration, and there will be plenty of movie and entertainment stars. All the dress shops are sold out in Washington. It’s hard to find a great dress for this inauguration.”

Well that didn’t happen did it Donald?

2. “Ariana Huffington is unattractive, both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man – he made a good decision.”

That’s a particularly low blow we think.

3. “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

No racist abuse here then Mr President!

4. “All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me – consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected.”

You certainly need self confidence to be President but this is a bit too far isn’t it?

5. “I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

This is just wrong on any and every level!

6. “Look at those hands, are they small hands? And, Rubio referred to my hands: ‘If they’re small, something else must be small.’ I guarantee you there’s no problem. I guarantee.”

Presidents are not meant to make innuendo comments about their penis. Once he’s gone they never will again.

7. “You know, it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young, and beautiful, piece of ass.”

Ever the feminist Donald, ever the feminist.

8. “40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan and now it’s the tallest.”

Yes Donald, that’s because of 9/11 isn’t it?

9. “The point is, you can never be too greedy.”

Errm …….. you can Donald!
10. “It’s freezing and snowing in New York – we need global warming!”

Wrong again!

What is the circular economy and why does it matter?


circular economy

The circular economy is defined as an alternative to a traditional linear economy where a product is made then used then disposed of. In the circular economy, which is proudly a part of, we try to keep essential resources in use for as long as possible by re using materials to extract the maximum value from them without compromising on quality.

There are many household names that use circular economy principles, like Tesco and Philips, but the question is do they truly believe in the circular economy? In these times of low oil and carbon prices, which have fed through to low commodity prices, the incentives to replace virgin resources with recycled alternative materials has dwindled somewhat.

The problem is very simple: It is often cheaper to use new virgin materials rather than use recycled materials or existing products. That cost driver is the biggest threat to the circular economy.

Statistics recently issued by the European commission have shown that businesses becoming more ecologically sustainable could reduce global greenhouse emissions by 2-4%.

Younger people are particularly interested in what’s known as zero waste markets, which makes it clear that as these younger people are the parents of the future, the big corporations are going to have to take notice or else!

Governments must act and enforce these principles either via punitive measures or via incentives but act they must and is ready to take up the challenge.



Hp new cartridge problem error

This time last year Hewlett Packard (HP) released what they called a “security update” which locked out a widespread number of printers for people who were using non-original cartridges. This caused an outcry throughout the industry and from many HP customers, which resulted in an apology from HP and a statement that they would reverse the update within a matter of weeks, which they did do.

They did however warn that they would endeavour to block the use of non-HP cartridges in the future.

Well now exactly 1 year on they’re at it again with a new firmware update for it’s range of Officejet printers resulting in “cartridge problem” error messages. No doubt uproar will ensue but it looks like HP are willing to take the flack.

As a consequence the following message may show for some customers using non-original cartridges in their Officejet printers:

“One or more cartridges appear to be damaged. Remove them and replace with new cartridges.”

This years security update however is a little different from last years and not quite so nasty, because HP are offering a way to resolve the issue by downloading new firmware from their support page, which you can access HERE.

Learn How To Save More Money When Buying Ink & Toner Cartridges


saving money on cartridges

Are you paying more for printer ink cartridges and printer toner cartridges? Some people pay more for an inkjet/toner cartridge than an entire printer.

As you may know most printer manufacturers like Hewlett-Packard Company (HP) and Canon have adopted the same marketing model as razor blade companies. For example, they will sell the razor at a very cheap price and even at a loss but then make money of the blades with a bigger margin. The same applies to printer manufacturers as they will sell their inkjet printers or laser printers at a loss, and make their money back from when you buy their genuine original (OEM) cartridges. However, you do not have to fall into that trap and buy the OEM cartridges as here at we can show you various ways of reducing printing cost quickly and therefore having a bigger saving for when you do printing.

Printer manufacturers will do all they can to convince consumers that third party cartridges e.g. compatible cartridges or re-manufactured cartridges are inferior and not reliable as their branded cartridges. They will go as far as saying that the compatible cartridges will “break” the printer if you use them. They will throw at you all the scare tactics they can as they need to recover the cost of the printer that they sold to you by getting you to purchase the cartridges supplies.

At inkntoneruk we give you more options for buying cartridges for your printer. That is why we prefer our consumers to use our search function on the site and search by printer name and model and thereby they can see all the options for their printer. We recommend our consumers to go for compatibles where it is available to save more money on their printer supplies. With , you have plenty of choices for printer supplies, and we can proudly say that you will save a huge amount of money with us compared to purchasing elsewhere. We offer a money back guarantee and will deliver for free to your doorstep. Here are few tips for saving money on printer ink and toner cartridges:

Buy Premium Compatible Ink Cartridges | InknTonerUK offers two types of compatible ink cartridge. They can either be a brand new copy made by a third party or a remanufactured cartridge depending on what type of printer you have. You will generally have good luck with compatible cartridges as the quality is very good and they generally last longer than the original ink cartridges.

Buy Budget Compatible Toner Cartridges | These are new build cartridges manufactured by third-party that meet or exceed your expectations. Again, with these budget compatible cartridges you will generally have good luck with them as the quality is very good and they generally last longer than the original toner cartridges.

Buy Premium Remanufactured Toner Cartridges | If you are looking for the highest quality compatible that you can get then the remanufactured cartridges is your best bet. These premium remanufactured cartridges are tested to verify that they perform exceedingly well and they frequently cost a fraction of price you pay for new original cartridges.

Buy Multipacks or Twin Packs (Value Packs) | Combine the savings by buying more than one cartridge e.g. a whole set of cartridges or a dual pack in order to save more money. That is one of the best way to save on printing costs.

Replace the Toner Cartridge Drum | If the toner cartridge does not make good quality prints, then replacing just the drum can be less expensive than replacing the whole cartridge.

Buy in Bulk Quantity | If you use a substantial amount of ink or toner; buy it in quantity. The more you buy with us of the same cartridge the more you save as we offer quantity discounts on all cartridges.

What is a counterfeit cartridge and can the issue be stopped?


spot the fake counterfeit cartridges

spot the fake counterfeit cartridges

Cartridge counterfeiting is when a cartridge is sold as if it’s an original product that’s been made by the manufacturer of your printer when in actual fact it’s nothing of the sort. A counterfeit cartridge is a copy that is inferior to an original and damages their reputation as well as potentially your printer! believes that this is a wretched industry that needs to be stamped out.

In June 2017 a new anti-counterfeiting tech firm said that it could “kill the fake markets instantly” by simply using QR codes.

World Trademark Review reported on Validactor, a technology company based in Italy, which launched new technology that adds “unique QR Codes to products so consumers can obtain information about them, including whether an item is authentic, expired, stolen or recalled.”

The company told World Trademark Review that by giving free access to its technology the company has the ability to “kill the fake markets instantly”.

The article describes that Validactor’s founder and head of development Dino Sergiano said at the launch event in June this year: “The biggest innovation we are implementing is the empowering of the biggest army in the world: customers. Each one, with their smartphones, may today be the biggest weapon available.”

According to the article, “the company’s social media presence is strong, with nearly 70,000 followers on Twitter at the time of publication and 14,000 on Facebook.”

Sergiano told World Trademark Review “We all have to move on a more social standpoint: fake products kill people, fake market revenues destroy economies, and we all have to fight this; therefore, we are taking a more social approach through the involvement of smaller companies and granting any of them free access to any Validactor feature.

“It is totally free, since we think that in order to ‘kill the fake markets instantly’ we need to have this technology present worldwide. Our vision is to provide free codes to as many companies as possible.”

Sergiano also said: “Anti-counterfeiting measures must employ the customer base, that is the only way to fight fakes. The main error that brands are making has been, and still is, the distance that they put between themselves and the final customer. My wife, just as an example, tried to verify the authenticity of a major Italian brand garment: it has been nearly impossible and is tricky and time consuming.”

Riot Games, Brother, 3M, Giuseppe Zanotti and Sennheiser are only a few of the brands the article names that already have an authentication service available via their websites.

An effective solution to end a problem as significant as counterfeiting requires entrepreneurs with pioneering ambitions. Additionally, rights holders would embrace any tool that looks likely to succeed in this battle. However, the fight against fakes is a multi-dimensional one and it remains to be seen whether there is the consumer will to shun counterfeits on the required scale, or a single solution that can succeed where others have not. For now, the end of counterfeiting remains a holy grail.

Canon Continues to Grow In The Printing Industry



The outlook for Canon is good for an expected 40 percent increase in operating profit for the year ending December due to extremely strong printer sales.

Nikkei Asian Review reported that the “consolidated operating profit for the year ending in December is expected to jump 40% to 330 billion yen ($2.94 billion) thanks to strong printer sales in emerging countries, successful acquisitions and automation.” has certainly seen a huge increase in Canon’s market share over the last few years especially.

Canon updated the profit outlook in April but Nikkei reports another update is likely to be made soon “since its current performance is ahead of its 270 billion yen ($243 million/ €209 million) estimate. Sales are also expected to top the company’s 4.02 trillion yen forecast, climbing 20% to nearly 4.1 trillion yen ($3.7 billion/ €3.2 billion).“

The article reports that growth of laser printer sales was seen in China and Southeast Asian emerging countries. Popular models reportedly are the new high-speed models. This increase in printer sales consequentially meant an increase in toner and other highly profitable consumables.

That’s where comes in of course because our mission is to reduce your printing costs and to fight against the ever-increasing cost of living.

Other changes made by Canon include the purchase of the medical division from Toshiba in 2016 and Axis Communications in the previous year, which also increased profits.

Another new area boosting profits is the cost cutting exercise through automation. Nikkei reports: “ The introduction of robots to the company’s single-lens reflex camera factory in Oita Prefecture has helped reduce the number of necessary workers for certain tasks from some 40 to just three or four. Automation at printer and other factories has also contributed to earnings growth by improving productivity.”

Quality is the key when buying third party cartridges


third party cartridges

The results of a survey done by Consumer Reports suggest that it pays to be cautious and to search for quality and not just price when buying third party cartridges.

The article stated that consumers turn to third party cartridges mainly because of lower prices but that they should be cautious because quality can be inconsistent.

That’s why shopping at pays dividends in both the short and long term.

According to Consumer Reports survey, 37 percent of people had bought third party cartridges because they were cheaper and pointed out that OEM cartridges can cost the best part of $700 (€613) (£542) over five years.

Third party cartridges come as re-manufactured, refilled (not that refills!) or compatible and are sold at a lot less than OEM printer inks. The article noted that the outcome of the Lexmark v. Impressions case where the judge ruled that third party businesses could refill and reuse toner cartridges originally made by Lexmark or any other OEM meant that smaller businesses now had more freedom from the restriction of patents.

This outcome was praised by consumer groups and Jessica Rich, Vice President for Consumer Policy and Mobilisation, Consumer Reports, commented: “We believe this is a positive step for competition, innovation, and consumer choice. It’s a win for consumers and small businesses.”

Even so, the article warns that these products have their set backs and do not always operate as well as the originals and that some can void the printers guarantee. Consumer Reports survey said 63 percent found that third party cartridges were just as good as OEMs while 36 said they were not as good.

Consumer Reports testers found inconsistencies with third party cartridges and Rich Sulin, Leader of Printer Testing Programme said that some samples worked without problems while others set off “warning messages from their printer or failed to print a test page” while others clogged printer heads.

Sulin and advises customers to use cartridges as soon as possible after purchase to test them out and to make sure there is a money back guarantee, which of course there is with us!

The article stated that: “Consumer Reports doesn’t rate third-party inks because the marketplace is so fractured—a large number of manufacturers offer a rapidly changing line up of products for different printer models, making comparisons difficult.”

The article reiterated the OEM warranty warning about using non-OEM cartridges and said as an example Lexmark states “that its warranty does not cover failures from “refilling or remanufacture by a third party of products, supplies or parts.” Consumer Reports also warned that smart printers could tell which cartridges were being used and could alert the manufacturer.

Consumer Reports suggested buying supertank printers to save money on ink or using an ink subscription service which according to HP Inc could cut costs in half.

We are of course highly sceptical of this report’s conclusion because our mission is to provide quality whilst saving our customers money and we are certain that our many long standing customers would agree!

China’s new e-waste reforms


e-waste reforms

China’s e-waste industry is ready for an upgrade. thinks it’s well overdue.

In the China dialogue website it has been reported that e-waste is a challenge because of the toxic substances and with the world producing 41.8 million tonnes in 2014 of that 6 million was produced in China.

China released a new policy in January of 2017 called Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) and by the end of the year the Ministry of Environmental Protection and other government bodies “must put forward a proposal for recycling electronic[s]” and that they want to see the EPR system in place for 2025 for “key product types” and advances in “environmental product design”.

The article also noted that China had shipped 560 million mobile phones in 2016 of which 400 – 500 million will be discarded as users update their phones and there are already one billion dumped in China.

The EPR system recommends four areas of manufacturer responsibility which are “producing environmentally-friendly designs, using recycled materials, standardising waste management and recycling processes, and disclosing data on recycling” to reduce carbon footprints and to make manufacturers track and re-use products during their life cycles”.

The reform will begin with targeting four products; electric and electronic, cars, lead batteries and drinks packaging which means increased costs for businesses in these segments and the recycling costs are “expected to be passed on to consumers through increased prices” the article suggested.

According to a survey by CHEARI (China Household Electric Appliance Research Institute) the informal recycling sector handles 86 percent of e-waste in China and the government wants to promote “formal recycling” because of incorrectly discarded materials during informal recycling which lead to pollution and environmental “damage”. The workforce toiling away on these informal sites have neither health and safety protection nor any union support.

Li Boyang, Deputy Head, Energy Saving and Environmental Protection, Research Centre, said that “licensed disposal firms require production lines that meet national environmental standards, and which use suitable technology to dismantle, discard and re-use waste, all whilst providing basic protections for employees” and this costs millions for a “single production line” leaving these firms unable to compete with the smaller traders. E-waste formal recyclers are subsidised by the government but the payment can be as late as one year, which may cripple smaller businesses.

Boyang said that it was “difficult to regulate and manage the informal recycling sector” and that the government wants to direct more E-waste to the formal sector as soon as possible but that the EPR (Enterprise Resource Planning) system is not addressing the fact that the smaller, informal segments are
important in keeping cities clean.

In the formal sector there are “strict licensing and limits on the number of waste firms” and there are only 109 at present but the China Dialogue was told that “large quantities of discarded products are snapped up by small scale workshops and traders, leaving nothing left for larger firms, meaning such facilities lie idle”.

In conclusion the article noted that by ignoring the informal sector and targeting manufacturers the former will be left without jobs and that this could cause other problems.

Today (July 7) is World Chocolate Day!


world chocolate day

Whether you prefer white or milk chocolate, or even dark chocolate, now’s the time and the perfect excuse.

So go on, pull out that bar of Toblerone, stock up on Kit Kats or demolish a block of Fruit & Nut.

What’s your preference?

One of the great things about chocolate is just how versatile it is, as well of course how just plain yummy it is too!

You can drink it, eat it, you can have it by itself, as an ingredient or even as a topping. It’s fair to say that at we simply love chocolate.

It’s the perfect summer snack (as long as it’s cold) and in winter-time nothings better than a cup of hot chocolate by the fire.

A little bit about how chocolate is made. You may know that Chocolate is produced from cocoa beans. This comes from the dried and partially fermented seeds of the cacao tree, which can be found in the deep tropical region of the Americas.

But where can you get cocoa from? If you want a lifetime supply of chocolate you can find them in West Africa as two-thirds of the entire world’s chocolate is produced there. Reports from the World Cocoa Foundation state that approximately 50 million people around the world depend on cocoa as a source of livelihood.

As you may know there are various types of chocolate but the most pure, unsweetened chocolate contains primarily cocoa solids and cocoa butter in varying proportions. Much of the chocolate consumed in today’s society is in the form of sweet chocolate which is cocoa and sugar combined. Milk chocolate is very common as well and it is also a sweet chocolate that additionally contains milk powder or condensed milk.

Majority of University graduates will never pay off student loan!



A report has found that three quarters of graduates will never pay off their student loans.

The Institute of fiscal studies show that most of those will still be paying it back when they’re into their 50s.

Reforms that have been brought in by the coalition government has seen the lowest earning third of graduates better off by £1500. Replacing maintenance grants with loans sent debt rates sky high.

The IFS (institute for fiscal studies) probe has revealed that any gains that have been made by poorer students during the controversial 2012 tuition fees system shake up have been wiped out more.

The result of this has proven that students from low income families are graduating with debt levels that reach as high as £57,000.

Interest rates were also extremely high at up to 3% above inflation. This means that your average student who borrows £45,000 will end up paying another £5,800 in interest.

The IFS have found that higher earners may have to fork out £40,000 in interest repayments.

Reports indicate that reducing maintenance grants would have the advantage of allowing the government to target specific students or courses which have wider benefits to society. The government have inputted that ‘This would, however significantly increase deficit spending and lead to a smaller but still considerable increase in the long run government contribution.’

Since 2011 university funding has increased by roughly 25% per student, originally funded by richer graduates. Institutions now receive on average £28,000 per student per degree.

British number one Johanna Konta is also in full action on the first day of the 131st championships, alongside with Venus Williams and Rafael Nadal.

The weather forecast for the early days of the tournament suggests rain throughout but due do the centre court roof, play is guanteed to take place thanks to the roof which has been put in force since 2009.

Court one has already begun work on installing a roof which will be available in time for the 2019 championships. This will cause the court to be more open to the elements than usual this year.

After the 647 matches that are about to take place, the two singles champions will walk away with a record prize money of 2.2m. This amount doubles the winner’s cheques from six years ago where the price taken home was just 35,000.

The earliest places in the famous queue for tickets were taken just 48 hours before play starts, this if for those who are prepared to camp out.

Roughly around half a million spectators will pass through the gates of all England club across the 13 days of play. 28,000kg of strawberries and 10,000 litres of cream are set to be consumed along the way!

How to disable HP Cartridge Protection


HP cartridge protection

HP is back at it again with their mission to stop letting consumers choose what type of cartridges they want to install and use in their printer. Hewlett-Packard have introduced this ‘cartridge protection’ system on their original ink cartridges to lock the genuine inks to a specific printer so that you cannot use that cartridge in any other printer.

Customers may want to use compatible ink cartridges or re-manufactured ink cartridges in their HP printer instead of the original genuine HP ink cartridges as they just cost too much.

What is HP Cartridge Protection?

Genuine ink cartridges may come with cartridge protection embedded in their chip. Once an ink cartridge is installed, your printer will mark it as protected, so that the cartridge can only be used with that printer as it is locked to it. If you was to buy a new printer that takes the same inks, you will not be able to use those cartridges in your new printer as it is locked to your old printer. This means that the ink cartridges cannot be refilled, recycled or remanufactured to use in another printer, and it will just end up in landfill.

If you are installing protected original ink cartridges that have been remanufactured to be re-used, you might see the message “HP Protected Cartridges installed Replace Cartridges”. This will mean that they will not work with your printer and will only work with 1 printer that is locked to.

HP protected cartridge error

Why would you want to stop this from happening?

It is obvious why you would want to stop this from happening:

  • You will not be able to use refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges
  • If you buy a new printer to replace your old printer, the cartridges will not work if it has already been installed in your old printer.
  • Cartridges cannot be recycled and will go into landfill.
  • There have been reports that some customers get the ‘protected’ error message even though they are using brand new original or starter cartridges.

How to turn off HP Cartridge Protection Setting!

You can turn off the HP cartridge protection setting in a few simple steps.

If your Hewlett-Packard printer does not have any internet features you can simply go into your printer settings which can be located on your printer menu and you will see the option to disable the HP cartridge protection. Just select the disable option and click Apply and Save if necessary.

If your printer has internet features:

  1. Open up a web browser and enter your printer’s IP address on the web address. Your printer’s IP address can be found on your printer settings by navigating your way to network setup options.
  2. This will open up the printer’s Embedded Web Server, click on the Settings option and to the left hand side select HP Cartridge Protection.
  3. Make sure you select Disable HP Cartridge Protection and click Apply or Save.

The Killer Clown Craze – Print Paper Masks


Its almost HALLOWEEN !!!

The ‘Killer Clown’ craze is seriously creepy and has been spreading across the UK which first started in the United States, where pranksters dress up as clown and frightens the hell out of people.

The killer clown dates back to as far as 2013, with more sightings in October as it’s the Halloween month. But this year has seen the killer clown craze intensify greatly.

Here is a short timeline of the killer clown craze sightings 2016.

  • 10 August

    Two teenagers arrested for frightening children in a local park in Ottawa, Canada with a 2-metre long chain.

  • 30 August

    New York Post writes an article of creepy clowns trying to lure children into the cluster of trees.

  • End of September

    Dozens of videos shared on social media such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter of the Killer Clown Prank. This led to dozens of arrests, school warnings and police investigations.

  • 29 September

    Stephen King tells everyone to cool the clown hysteria and denies that this is a publicity stunt for the remake of Stephen King’s It – the main antagonist is a killer clown.

  • 4 October

    After a number of encounters in the UK, a Newcastle teenager suffering from coulrophobia (a fear of clowns) wrote online that she had been chased down the street by a creepy clown. Megan Bell, a College student who lives in Fenham, said: “The ‘clown’ chased me for about 20 seconds. I felt very scared and vulnerable as I was a girl on my own.”

  • 5 October

    Local police in Eastbourne are increasing the patrols to catch people dressing up as clowns, after an incident where a clown jumped from a bush holding a weapon scaring a cyclist.

  • 5–8 October

    Sightings of the killer clown has been reported in Essex, County Durham Cheshire, North Wales, Dundee, Norwich, London, Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield. Police have so far made at least six arrests.

  • 9 October

    The Thames Valley Police has dealt with 14 reports in 24 hours and still counting.

  • 11 October

    McDonald’s decided to limit public appearances of their clown mascot, as you all know by the name of Ronald McDonald.

  • 13 October

    A man in Cumbria dressed as Batman ( maybe Bruce Wayne) has reportedly vowed to deal with any clowns taking part in the killer clown prank.

  • 14 October

    The Metropolitan Police advises people especially children to dial 999 if they spot a scary clown, due to potentially how dangerous it can be.

  • 15 October

    The killer clown craze has gone too far with men armed with a machete and dressed as a creepy clown threatens schoolgirls in Bury St Edmunds.

    The killer clown craze has shown no sign of slowing down and continues all the way through to the date of Halloween.

    At Ink N Toner UK, we advise those who wants to dress up as a clown, to stay away from it and perhaps try some other alternative Halloween masks. You can download some of the scary masks here:




HP to Buy Samsung’s Printing Business



HP + Samsung Printing = HP Inc.

HP Inc (Hewlett Packard) has just got a lot bigger!!

It is a good news for HP customers, as the US computer giant HP has struck a deal to acquire Samsung’s Printer Business. The OEM’s have agreed on the deal, which is confirmed that HP will acquire Samsung printing business for $1.05 billion, the largest print acquisition in its history.

HP expects this acquisition of Samsung’s printing business will help the company to replace its existing HP printers & copiers with superior multifunction printer (MFP) technology and more advanced Wi-Fi technology.

Samsung’s multifunction printers like the MultiXpress series and ProXpress series will join HP’s portfolio of laser printers which it shares with Canon, to provide customers with better technology advanced printers. The good news for HP is that it doesn’t have to rely on Canon engine printers as it can begin to replace them with Samsung laser and inkjet technology. These changes will see a significant dent on Canon’s printer and consumable sales.

This deal will really improve HP’s revenue and their growth as it includes over 6,500 patents and a workforce of about 1,300 researchers and engineers. The acquisition is intended to provide Hewlett Packard with some wriggle room in maximising their revenue out of partners in the managed print services market.

HP Inc said “the acquisition of Samsung’s printer business allows us to deliver print innovation and create entirely new business opportunities with far better efficiency, security, and economics for customers.”

The deal is expected to close within a year, so you may see new HP printers and consumables that uses Samsung technology offered at Ink N Toner UK to buy as we will start to sell the new supplies as soon as it is available in the market.


Print Friendly Morse Code


Morse code is a method of sending messages over long distances using alphabet or code in which letters are represented by combinations of long and short light or sound signals. Morse code can be directly understood by a skilled listener or observer without special equipment. However you can learn the basic of Morse code here. Just print out the print-friendly visual image below and you can start communicating in Morse code. You can print out the Morse code image in an A5 photo paper and laminate it and keep it with you at all times to send messages in Morse code.

Remember Morse code works like this:

  1. 1 dash = 3 dots
  2. The space between parts of the same letter = 1 dot
  3. The space between letters = 3 dots
  4. The space between words = 7 dots 

Below is an example of Morse code:

..  -.  -.-      -.     –  —  -.  .  .-.     ..-  -.-

I  N  K       N     T  O  N  E  R    U  K


What Is Cost Per Page?


When you are looking at ink cartridges or toner cartridges offered at Ink N Toner UK, you will see a ‘Cost Per Page’ section. This Cost Per Page gives you information of the cartridge cost per print. Therefore you can compare prices across each cartridges and find out how much you are saving.

For your convenience, the Cost Per Page information can be found on the list view of your printer (showing all the supplies for your machine) or the product view.

Please note the Cost Per Page information should be only used as a guide as the figure is based on the manufacturer’s estimates of how many pages a cartridge prints.

The page yields (below the cost per page information) tells you how many pages a cartridge can print before it runs out. For the vast majority of cartridges this is tested at a 5% coverage printed onto plain A4 paper.


The cost per page for an individual ink or toner cartridge is calculated using the page yield of that cartridge. For instance: the price of the cartridge divided by the page yield and this will give you an average cost per page of that cartridge.

The best value multi-packs’ cost per page is calculated using the total yield of the cartridges in the pack. The same principle applies; the price of the best value multi-pack divided by the total page yields and this will give you an average cost per page of this value pack.

If there are no Cost per Page displayed for a specific product, it just means that the page yield of the cartridge has not been tested according to the International Standard or InkNTonerUK are unable to source the page yield for that cartridge.

Have a look at the cost per page for the HP 302 cartridges in list view:

HP Apologies and Announces Firmware Reversal to Get Compatibles Working Again!



HP has promised to reverse a software update which left thousands of customers unable to use compatible ink cartridges (aftermarket copy cartridges) in their HP printer.

If your HP printer’s software have been updated in September, then the compatible ink cartridges that does not contain chips made by HP, will not work with your machine, even if your printer had previously accepted the ink cartridges and printed perfectly. This means that ink cartridges that are original, refilled or re-manufactured cartridges with an original HP security chip will continue to work with your printer but a brand new copy will cease to work.

Without any warning to the customers, thousands of printers suddenly stopped working, leaving users frustrated.

HP tried to be clever by doing this as they only want you to buy their genuine original inks and not the compatible ink cartridges, as they cannot make any money if you buy our compatible ink cartridges.

The good news is that customers will be able to continue using compatible ink cartridges as HP will allow users to undo the software update that made printers reject third-party ink cartridges.

HP has stated that it “should have done a better job of communicating” the update, and will “issue an optional firmware update” to remove the initial feature.

So please do go ahead with reversing what they have done, by updating the firmware update when it is available IF compatibles do not work with your printer as you have updated your software during the period of March and September.

Sept 16, 1959 The First Successful Copier!


Can you guess which company introduced the first successful commercial photocopier? It was Xerox.

Xerox has been around for a very long time and they marked their spot in photocopying history when they introduced the first photocopier to the world.

The first successful commercial photocopier which was roughly the size of a desk was introduced by Haloid Xerox on September 16th 1959. Xerox called it the Xerox 914 Photocopier which was broadcast on live television to demonstrate this new machine, first of its kind. It took the Xerox 914 machine around 25 seconds to make one copy which is very impressive at that time considering it was the first ever photo copier in the world.

The launch of the Xerox 914 was a success even though if too many copies were printed during one period of time, it would overheat. This could lead to the machine catching fire if used over a period of time. But Xerox had a solution to this. They attached a small fire extinguisher with every photocopier sold. I know this won’t be acceptable in today’s era. Imagine your brand new iPhone 7 Plus was shipped with a small USB fan, because it was overheating?? How ridiculous would that be.

Take a look below at how the first Xerox photocopier looked compared to today’s newer models.

Captain America: Civil War Review




Are you Team Cap? Or Team Iron Man?

This weekend I went to see the new Captain America: Civil War film.

I had very high expectations. The comic is probably my favourite Marvel comic, and that being said I didn’t expect it to be similar to the comic in any aspect due to the involvement of Bucky and it being a continuation from the second Captain America film. Although it was very dissimilar to the comic I love, it is my new favourite MCU film.

The fight scenes were awesome, the story was interesting, and all in all, it made an excellent film.

Whose side am I on? Definitely Team Iron Man.

Go see it and decide for yourself!

Here at Ink N Toner UK, we absolutely loved Civil War and to celebrate, we’re printing out the official poster for the film. Why not do the same?!

Bank Holiday Weekend!

Not sure what to do with your kids this Bank Holiday? The weather being too cold to take them out and do stuff with?

Why not stay in and print out some colouring pages from Google to keep your kids entertained whilst you sit back and relax with a cup of tea in front of the telly.

April Fools Day!




It’s April 1st! Happy April Fools Day from Ink N Toner UK!

Ever wondered why April Fools Day exists? Well whilst sitting and work dreading what is to come from family, friends and co-workers, I found myself wondering “why?” Why does this dreadful and horrific day exist?

The answer is: no one actually really knows.

Some speculate that April Fools Day originated in the 18th century.

Whilst no one really knows why this so-called ‘holiday’ exists, it can be fun, but only if you’re the one pulling the prank, really.

So happy April Fools Day!

Want to celebrate April Fools Day but don’t want to pull a nasty, horrible prank on someone you love? Why not be lazy, print out the awesome poster we’ve made here at Ink N Toner UK instead to show your friends, family or co-workers that you wanted to prank them but didn’t want to hurt them emotionally or physically.

Alternatively, you could just print out photos of spiders and leave them in your mum’s cupboard to freak her out at some point and then shout “APRIL FOOLS” at her, but that may come with some consequences.

Happy St David’s Day




On March 1st every year falls St David’s Day. Happy St David’s Day!

St David’s Day is the feast day of St David, who is the patron saint of Wales. St David’s Day falls on the 1st March, marking the death of the saint.

So who was Saint David? It is said that he performed numerous miracles, such as restoring the sight of Saint Paulinus. It is also said that he made the Earth rise beneath him whilst preaching to a crowd so his sermon could be heard better. It is also said that during a battle against the Saxons he advised soldiers to wear leeks in their hats to avoid friendly fire (this is the reason why one of the emblems of Wales is the leek).

It is typical to dress in traditional Welsh attire on St David’s Day, with women wearing petticoats, overcoats, tall hats and frilled bonnets, and men wearing white shirts, Welsh flannel waistcoats, black trousers, long wool socks and black shoes. These outfits originated during the 18th and 19th centuries. It is also traditional for children to sing Welsh folk songs, recite Welsh poems and enjoy traditional Welsh dancing.

So celebrate with us here at Ink N Toner UK by printing out our St David’s Day printable!

Guide To Buying External Hard Drives




Need an external hard drive but don’t really know what you’re looking for?

Well here at Ink N Toner UK, we’ve got your back.

There are two types of external hard drives: desktop hard drives and pocket hard drives.

Desktop hard drives require a power adaptor and are designed to stay in one place (i.e. on your desktop). If you’re looking for a desktop hard drive, we suggest looking for one with a built-in fan as it will prolong the life of the hard drive. Desktop hard drives can come in sizes ranging from 500GB to 5TB

Pocket hard drives are hard drives designed to be transported are and do not need a power adaptor. These kinds of hard drives usually top out at 2TB, but 500GB and 1TB capacities are most common.

Not sure what that is? Well the Lantern Festival is the last day of Chinese New Year celebrations.

The Lantern Festival falls on the 15th day of the first lunar month in the Chinese New Year, marking the first full moon of the Chinese New Year and the coming of Spring. The festival is over 2,000 years old and is celebrated around the world with light displays and the launching of thousands of sky lanterns. The lanterns represent the longer daylight hours as well as the light from a full moon. This year, the Lantern Festival falls today.

Today, the lanterns mean a lot more to people. Nowadays, the lanterns symbolise people letting go of their past selves, as well as good luck.

The Magical Lantern Festival is taking place at Chiswick House and Gardens until Sunday 6th March! Go get your tickets!

New 3D Products!



Here at Ink N Toner UK, we’ve launched a whole new bunch of 3D products!

We’ve added a whole new range of products including the cartridges for XYZ printing, Ultimaker and Leapfrog!

We’ve also added compatible Verbatim and Ninjaflex filaments for even more savings.

We’ve added a huge range of TPE, PLA and ABS filaments. Check it out:


Have a look at our range of 3D printers here!

Differences between TPE, PLA and ABS filaments:

PLA (Polyatic Acid) is one of the most commonly used 3D printing materials. It’s odorless and low-warp, as well as not needing a heated bed. PLA plastic is also relatively eco-friendly as it’s made from corn-starch which is a renewable source. Check out one of our PLA filaments here!

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is the other commonly used 3D printing material. It’s able to withstand higher temperatures than PLA and is considered less brittle. Some ABS filaments can be viewed here!

TPE is more flexible than PLA and ABS and acts a lot like rubber. TPE filaments are mostly used for parts that need to flex to fit something, for example a mobile phone case. Have a look at some of our TPE filaments here!

Deadpool Out Now!




This weekend, Deadpool was released and here at Ink N Toner UK, we’re over the moon.

Before I get started with what I thought of the film, the film smashed box office sales, making a whopping $260 million worldwide just over this weekend. It’s the first R-rated movie to top $100 million on the opening weekend.

Now onto what I thought:

Deadpool is an incredible character on it’s own. Combine that with Ryan Reynolds and you get something special. There were loads of inside jokes and references such as a couple picking on the Green Lantern film Reynolds was involved in: “Don’t make the super-suit green… Or animated,” and having a Green Lantern playing card on-screen. There was also a joke where Deadpool asks whether Professor X was going to appear as “MxAvoy or Stewart.”

Fox also pulled some jokes that they possibly weren’t allowed to pull. If you’re a hardcore Marvel fan like we are here at Ink N Toner UK, you would’ve realised who the henchman toward the end of the film was. The man I’m talking about is the one who Deadpool stops fighting with to have a conversation. “Bob!” – One of Deadpool’s sidekicks in the comic books was called Bob, who was an Agent of Hydra. Fox don’t own the rights to Hydra but it will never be confirmed whether it was him on not, it’s just a little joke for the hardcore fans so technically it doesn’t break any ownership laws.

The self-aware hero proved his worth on the big-screen. The film was incredible, making my sides hurt from laughing. It really and truthfully was one of the best superhero films I’ve ever seen.

Go see it! It’s worth it!

Why not celebrate Deadpool with us here at Ink N Toner UK by printing out the official poster and plastering it up on your wall!

New Captain America: Civil War Teaser!




A new teaser for Captain America: Civil War premiered at the Super Bowl yesterday… and it’s epic. Here at Ink N Toner UK, we’re extremely excited.

Take a look at it here:

“Divided… we… stand, divided… we… fall”

This is the most intense trailer I’ve ever seen in my entire life on this Earth.

Previous to this trailer, I was feeling a bit /not sure/ about Civil War, because of it hinting the movie to be fairly different to the comic, which is my favourite Marvel comic.

However, this trailer has sparked an excitement in me which I can’t comprehend.

This trailer gives us the first look at both sides:
Cap’s team = Bucky (The Winter Soldier), Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, Ant Man, Falcon
Iron Man’s team = Black Widow, Black Panther, War Machine, Vision

Ant Man! A first look at Ant Man! Although we haven’t had a single glimpse of the new SpiderMan, it’s really awesome to see Ant Man among other Marvel heroes.

The only dialogue we hear in this trailer apart from the chanting (which adds to the intensity), is from Iron Man: “you chose the wrong side.”

The hype for this movie is truly remarkable and my personal stance has changed significantly – here at Ink N Toner UK, we can’t wait.

Can’t wait either? Why not celebrate this new trailer with us here at Ink N Toner UK by printing out the official poster and plastering it up on your wall whilst you await the film?

Deadpool Out February 10th




One of the most anticipated films for comic book lovers, like myself, is the Deadpool movie, coming to cinemas on February 10th, and here at Ink n Toner UK, we’re DEAD excited (get it… dead, like Deadpool *ba dum tss*).

If you don’t know, or have never heard of Deadpool, I’ll take the time to explain:
Deadpool, or Wade Wilson, is a Marvel anti-hero who is most commonly known for breaking the fourth wall. Many comic fans love Deadpool for his dark humour and mental instability. He has accelerated healing, making him essentially immortal. Deadpool is aware that he is a fictional character in a comic book, allowing him to break the fourth wall regularly, adding a comedic factor you don’t get with most comics and films. Deadpool is also known for talking too much and just being hilarious in general. So in essence, make sure you head down to the cinema on February 10th to see this film, it’s going to be a good one.

To celebrate the near release of this highly-anticipated film, why not join us here at Ink n Toner UK and print out the official movie poster, because let’s be honest, it’s hilarious.

Monday Blues…



Got a severe case of Monday blues? Fret no more, as here at Ink n Toner UK we have some solutions to cure that feeling you get when the week starts afresh!

After the very short break more commonly known as the weekend, it’s hard to get up for work or school at 6.30am, but think of it this way… Without a Monday to start the week, followed by a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and finally Friday, the weekend will not seem as sweet.

So just remember, Monday’s are essential to the build up of the weekend and to have that sweet rest you desire!

Although the weekend seems far just remember, that well deserved weekend is only a short 4 days away!

To pass the time on this dull Monday, why not print out that extremely late Christmas card you forgot to send your Grandma? Or why not print out and solve some Sudoku puzzles? How about printing out some sheet music so you can learn the songs you’ve being dreaming of playing? The possibilities are endless.

This terrible news came as a shock to all, following the passing of David Bowie only a few days ago. The world has lost two great men this last week. Many Bowie fans gathered in Brixton the night he passed and had a street party to celebrate his life. In response to Alan Rickman’s death, Potter fans across the globe took their wands and raised them to the sky in memory of the late Professor:

At The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studio in Orlando, fans left a single Lily outside the potions classroom as tribute:

J.K. Rowling herself also had something to say:

And lastly, fans in London left flowers and messages at Platform 9 3/4:

6eb25e48da1727d86c6f81bf2f5be0d5 23e 47fcedec1ed6aa23be70aa83768c24b7 199f1e6d275496a2e508438840e069645592983717266468a43b031fcfbb44c8 Nick01 Nicolas-Cage-Cats e3e35d91faf5f14b0508867a7e8d117ea45b87faca266cd0fac683a22008098b
