Its Star Wars Day. May the 4th be with you!

Featured

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.

 

So, we thought we’d give you some iconic images to print off and stick on your wall or to send to friends and family in recognition of the most momentous day in the Star Wars calendar.

Summer has come early at Ink N Toner UK!

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!

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

Barbecues

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!

picnic

Picnics

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!

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.

Featured

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.

Stephen Hawking, a brilliant cosmologist.

Featured

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.
