CH Africa: High-Quality Ink Cartridges That Are Made to Last

Ink cartridges are valuable. In fact, inkjet ink is estimated to cost around US $2500 per litre. In some circles, ink has even been referred to as “black gold.” While the pirates of yesteryear were searching tirelessly for hidden treasures that were buried in some forgotten cave, the modern world has a different commodity that they need in abundance: ink. Ink is utilised in a number of different industries and it’s certainly not going out of fashion any time soon. It is reported that the law industry prints the most documents every year. This is followed by the medical industry in second place and accounting firms in third. One US-based report documented that the average person working in an office will use 10 000 printed sheets of paper in one year and thus printing is paramount to the business world. If you want to be a game player in business, you need printing solutions that last.

While there are many global bids to go paperless, it seems as if printing is here to stay and paper consumption at a business level grows every year. If you’re in an industry where printing is essential, you need to choose cartridges that will enhance the lifespan of your printer and yield brilliant results. If you’re looking for high-quality ink cartridges, CH Africa is the right place to be. We pride ourselves on providing top-quality printing solutions and believe that all printers deserve the best when it comes to ink cartridges and associated printing accessories. Before we explore the high-quality cartridges that we have for sale, it’s important to look at why the quality of your ink cartridge is so important.

Imagine for a moment that your HP printer is a living being. We’ll call him Paul and thanks to many years of reliable service he’s become a valuable part of your team, maybe even a friend. Paul works hard but all this work makes him hungry and he loves nothing more than a tasty cartridge after a hard day in the office. As Paul’s guardian, it’s your responsibility to ensure that he gets a well-balanced meal. Sure, you can feed him the cheap stuff – those subpar generic or repurposed models that won’t break the bank, but they won’t exactly offer Paul much in the way of nutrition.

If fed these for a prolonged period of time, Paul might start to slow down and those cheap ink cartridges might begin to erode important components of Paul’s mechanical make-up. Eventually, Paul just won’t be the printer he used to be and you’ll be forced to say goodbye to your old friend and splurge on a new and shinier model. We’ll call her Susan. Yes, she might be a little showier than trusty Paul was, but you’ll be paying big bucks for this new and dazzling team member. Hopefully, with the lesson learnt the hard way and having to say goodbye to Paul, you’ll now be investing in superior-quality cartridges and feeding Susan the food she deserves.

Nonetheless, if you opted to feed Paul the good stuff from the get-go, such a goodbye might not have been necessary. Paul would still be thriving and his printing heads would be running smoothly. All he needed was a little nutrition and as a responsible printer owner, you can choose to feed him those immune-boosting HP cartridges at any point. Such a responsible choice pays off down the line and enhances the life of your printer, thus saving you money in the long run.

Why It Is Important to Invest in a High-Quality Cartridge

Now we know the story of Paul and the devastating consequences of feeding him second-rate ink cartridges. Let’s look at some of the benefits of using high-quality cartridges and why you should always purchase them from a reputable supplier:
  • Printer compatibility: One of the biggest benefits of opting for a high-quality cartridge is that it will be compatible with your printer. Choosing the genuine cartridge brand for your specific printer will enable your printer to print at optimal levels and will prevent problems down the line. Genuine cartridges are specifically tailored with the exact printer in mind. Thus, if you have an HP printer, HP ink cartridges are perfectly designed to fit a specific printer’s unique needs. Opting for cartridges that are built with your printer in mind will ensure that your printer runs smoothly and isn’t damaged by faulty generics.
  • Better-quality printing: Communication is key in any business and you want to ensure that documents are printed with high quality in mind. This is especially true if clients need to sign documents or if printed materials need to be kept on file for a certain number of years. High-quality cartridges result in better printing and this is important to a number of industries. Opting for the best quality will result in clear prints, fewer smudges, and overall consistency. Ensure that everything you print speaks to your company’s professionalism by choosing ink cartridges.
  • Saving resources: While high-quality cartridges might initially seem pricier than their generic counterparts, they’ll save you money in the long run by protecting your printer. Choosing cartridges that align with your printer is the best way to prolong the lifespan of your device and thus you won’t have to fork out on a new printer prematurely.
