Printer consumables are important for keeping your printer running smoothly. Printer consumables can include toner, ink, paper, and more. Knowing what type of printer consumable is needed for your printing needs can help keep print quality high.
Toner cartridges contain the printing powder that creates the image on the paper. Toner cartridges typically last around 6,000 pages and need to be replaced every 6 months or sooner if the print quality starts to degrade.
Ink cartridges contain the color pigment used to create the image on the paper. Ink cartridges typically last around 3,000 pages and need to be replaced every 3 months or sooner if print quality starts to degrade.
Paper is the material used to print your documents. Paper comes in a variety of sizes and types to fit different printing needs. Plain paper is typically used for basic printing tasks like printing text or monochrome images. Photo paper is usually used for printing photos. Matte photo paper is designed for printers that produce bright colors with little contrast and is usually used when scanned photos are printed. Thick photo paper is designed for printers that produce high-quality prints with a lot of contrast and is usually used for glossy printing.
