Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: Why does my printout looks smudgy/ blur/ blank/ faded?

A: The main issue here is due to the clogged or dirty print head. The print head is the main instrument in printing quality images. It helps to eject ink from the ink cartridge onto paper. Therefore if the print head gets clogged, then images will be distorted. Occasional (not frequent) cleaning of the print head is essential to prevent ink from hardening on the print head. 

Q: Why have my ink level dropped drastically after cleaning the print head?

A: The reason is because in the cleaning process, the printer attempts to fire all nozzles of ink at once, and as the ink sprays out, some of it wicks across the printhead to the dry channels and partially softens the hardened ink. After spraying, a rubber wiper blade is swept across the printhead to spread the moisture evenly across the printhead, and the jets are again all fired to dislodge any ink clumps blocking the channels. Therefore in a round of cleaning, ink is consumed in the process which explains the drop in ink level

Q: My ink cartridge is leaking!

A: If your cartridge is leaking, please email us at [email protected] with pictures showing the leaking cartridge as well as the packaging. Subsequently, once we have successfully verified the issue, we will resend you another batch of cartridge. Do not install the leaking cartridge as it will damage your print head.

Q: Will the usage of compatible ink cartridge damage my printer?

A: Absolutely not! Compatible cartridge works just as well as original ink cartridges with the same quality BUT at only a fraction of the original cartridge cost. Printer cartridge is no rocket science technology; hence it is easily reverse engineered by many, which erodes the margins of original manufacturers. Therefore, much marketing efforts is being done by printer companies to differentiate their original products in order to maintain the robust margins they are deriving from a sale. The fact is, compatible cartridges produces the same high quality prints but only at a fraction of the price which makes home and small business printing so much more affordable- this is our mission!

Q: Are your cartridges refillable?

A: Yes and No! We want to provide choices to our consumers! Refillables are generally more expensive but economical in the long run as opposed to non-refillables.

We also have refill ink bottles for sale. Do check them out!
