    I received my order, thank you for your great customer service..



    It is not often people write emails or letters of praise but consider this one of the rare ones!
    I must say, ordering your product was about the easiest imaginable. Coupled with the fact that it arrived here basically “next day” I am thoroughly happy. To tell you the truth, I was expecting to have to go pay full retail for one black cartridge thinking that your’s would take at least a week to arrive but I was wrong, the order arrived before I could even go out to get one!
    Congrats people, I WILL tell all my friends and neighbours about you!

The right font can save you money

Do you want to save some money on printing? Try Century Gothic.

Hit by the high prices of inkjet and toner cartridges, we’re all looking for ways to shave some bucks off the cost of printing. New data has found that because different fonts use different amounts of ink to print, using the right font could save you as much as 31 percent off your inkjet and toner cartridge expenses.

Testing was performed by  setting up two printers–a Canon inkjet and a Brother laser printer–to see how much money could be saved by using different fonts.

Both printers were left at their default settings of 600×600 dots per inch.

Can the right font cut your printing costs?

The winner: Century Gothic, which delivered a 31 percent savings in printing costs over Arial.


As a thin and light font, Century Gothic managed to beat out Econfont, which was specifically created to cut costs by spewing out less ink. But if Century Gothic doesn’t look like the right style for your documents, third place and always popular Times Roman could also help ease your printing budget.

New Etch Resist Inkjet Process Coming Soon

Inkjet has gotten a lot of press over the last few years– and not necessarily all good. While much of the focus has been on legend and solder mask, a new, non-piezo ink-jetted etch resist is now on the horizon. MuTracx Global Sales and Marketing Director Stuart Hayton discusses a new etch resist inkjet process, Lunaris, that is already attracting a lot of investor interest.

Inkjet-like device ‘prints’ cells right over burns

(Reuters) – Inspired by a standard office inkjet printer, U.S. researchers have rigged up a device that can spray skin cells directly onto burn victims, quickly protecting and healing their wounds as an alternative to skin grafts.

They have mounted the device, which has so far only been tested on mice, in a frame that can be wheeled over a patient in a hospital bed, they reported on Wednesday.

A laser can take a reading of the wound’s size and shape so that a layer of healing skin cells can be precisely applied, said the team at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

"We literally print the cells directly onto the wound," said student Kyle Binder, who helped design the device. "We can put specific cells where they need to go."

Tests on mice showed the spray system, called bioprinting, could heal wounds quickly and safely, the researchers reported at the Translational Regenerative Medicine Forumb.

"We were able to close the entire wound in two weeks," Binder said. Mice with plugs of skin removed that were not treated took five weeks to heal, he said.

The team will eventually seek U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval to test the device on humans, said George Christ, a professor of regenerative medicine at the school.

They are working with the U.S. Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine to come up with ways to help soldiers wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. It could be used to close various types of wounds as well as burns.

Binder and colleagues dissolved human skin cells from pieces of skin, separating and purifying the various cell types such as fibroblasts and keratinocytes.

They put them in a nutritious solution to make them multiply and then used a system similar to a multicolor office inkjet printer to apply first a layer of fibroblasts and then a layer of keratinocytes, which form the protective outer layer of skin.

The wound on the mouse was completely closed by three weeks, they reported. Experts say victims of massive burns usually die of infection within two weeks unless they receive skin grafts, and normal grafting often leaves severe scars.

The sprayed cells also incorporated themselves into surrounding skin, hair follicles and sebaceous glands, probably because immature cells called stem cells were mixed in with the sprayed cells, the researchers said.

"You have to give a lot of credit to the cells. When you put them into the wound, they know what to do," Binder said.

The next step is to try the system on pigs, whose skin more closely resembles the skin of humans. Binder said it may also be useful for treating diabetic foot ulcers, a common problem.

Free Ink Week at Weiss ACE Hardware Illinois!

Free printer ink, anyone? Now that is certainly a far cry from what is often perceived as the norm – that ink can burn a hole in your purse or pocket (or wherever you decide to put your hard-earned cash in). For the patrons of the Weiss ACE Hardware Store in Glenview, Illinois, however, that is going to change – for a week, at least.

printer inkA press release on Fox Business announced that starting April 8 through April 14, Weiss ACE Hardware customers can avail of free ink cartridge refills. The promotion, “Free Ink Week”, is a collaboration between Weiss ACE Hardware and INK-O-DEM, described as “the worldwide leader in integrated inkjet cartridge refilling and testing technology for retail and university environments.”

For a week starting this Thursday, Weiss ACE Hardware patrons who have an empty inkjet cartridge can come into the store to get a refill for free. The promo is in response to an observed customer need as well as a growing trend among consumers towards environmentally-friendly practices, according to the press release.

Basically, it is being used by Weiss ACE Hardware as an opportunity for their customers to get a head start on green living by giving them the incentive of giving inkjet cartridge refilling a try. Those who are still contemplating about the pros and cons of cartridge refilling may now see for themselves what the process is like and how it affects their respective printers’ performance – and whether refilling is the correct option for their priorities and needs.

Weiss ACE Hardware is located at 1560 Waukegan Road in Glenview, Illinois
