Toner Cartridges

Toner cartridges are the printer consumables that contain the toner, powdery substance, used to print on paper. Toner cartridges are also commonly referred to as printer toner cartridges and printer toner cartridges. Toner is a powder that is fused to paper to produce the printed output. Two of the main benefits of toner versus ink are that toner does not bleed when wet and the cost per page for toner is significantly less than ink. HP is the most popular brand in the printer industry followed closely by Xerox, Dell, Oki, Konica-Minolta, Samsung, Brother and Lexmark.

Ink Cartridges

Ink cartridges are used in inkjet printers and not laser printers. Ink cartridges contain liquid ink while laser printers utilize a powder. Depending on the brand and model of printer, one or more ink cartridges are used. In addition, many printers now have special "photo ink cartridges". Photo ink cartridges are specially formulated ink to print photographs on the manufacturers specially formulated photo paper. The combination of special ink plus special paper produces high quality photographic prints that last much longer and does not fade when compared to prints with standard ink on normal photo paper.
