An Introduction to Ink Cartridge
July 26, 2022

Ink is one of the most important consumables in a printer. It's responsible for printing your documents, photos, or anything else you print. Inkjet printers use cartridges that contain ink, and each cartridge has a specific type of ink that the printer uses.


Cartridge types can be broken down into three main categories: black, color, and photo. Black cartridges contain only black ink and are used for printing text and images that don't require any color. Color cartridges contain black, yellow, magenta, cyan, and light green ink and are used for printing documents with color. Photo cartridges contain both black and color ink and are used for printing photos.


Each type of cartridge has different requirements when it comes to how much ink it needs to print successfully. For example, a black cartridge needs at least 0.5 ml (milliliters) of ink per page, while a color cartridge needs 3 ml of ink per page. If your printer doesn't have enough ink in its cartridge to meet those requirements, you'll get warnings from the printer about low ink levels and eventually it will stop printing altogether.


If you're ever unsure whether or not your printer is using its ink efficiently, or you see that it's out of ink at all times, consider replacing your cartridges. G&G offers various types of ink cartridges, it would be a good option for you.
