    Hello:

    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!

Epson Commences Court Proceedings against DCI

– LONDON, United Kingdom, April 14, 2011 –

Seiko Epson Corporation ("Epson," TSE: 6724) has today commenced High Court proceedings against Dynamic Cassette International Limited ("DCI") for infringement of several of its patents related to printer ink cartridge technology. DCI manufactures "own-brand" ink cartridges in the UK for a wide range of high street retailers and also sells under its own "Jet Tec" brand. Its infringing cartridges are sold in the UK and in many other countries.

Epson takes a proactive stance against infringements of this nature in order to protect its brand and technologies, and to support its channel partners and customers.

Robert Clark, Executive Director of Epson Europe, said: "We invest heavily in research and development to ensure that our customers receive the best possible imaging results from our products. Attempts to copy our technologies impact both on us as a brand and on our customers’ experiences. As a business we are committed to protecting our investments, and our resulting products and technologies, the world over."

Non-branded printer cartridges will save you a bundle

Non-branded printer cartridges will save you a bundle

So says one supplier

15 Nov 2010 08:27 | by Andrea Petrou | posted in Business

Non-branded printer cartridges will save you a bundle - Wikimedia

People that switch from branded inkjet printer cartridges to private label versions could save themselves a bundle of cash, research has found.
In a YouGov survey of 2000 households, for Environmental Business Products, the company found that switching labels could save households a combined £440 million a year.
It also found that the average home gets through 4.85 cartridges a year. Half of those questioned admitted they only ever buy branded cartridges from printer manufacturers such as Hewlett Packard, Epson, Lexmark or Canon.
According to the research, branded cartridges typically cost £30 each, which creates an annual bill of £145.50 – the same as a television licence. It said if buyers of branded cartridges – approximately 10.1 million households – instead bought private label versions from high-street retailers and supermarkets, which are around 30 percent cheaper, they would save £43.65 per household per annum or a combined £440 million. Currently only 18 percent of households exclusively buy private-label versions.
Patrick Stead, founder and chief executive of Environmental Business Products, which -surprise, surprise – supplies private-label cartridges to many high street retailers across Europe said: “When most items in the shopping basket are rising in price, the printer cartridge is one product where there are easy savings to be made, so it is surprising that so many people continue to pay a premium.
“Buying a private-label ink cartridge gives consumers a saving of 25 percent to 35 percent which is very welcome at any time, but especially in the current climate. Once people realise there is no compromise in quality, regardless of misleading propaganda, they’re likely to stick with the cheaper option rather than returning to branded.”
The survey also found that 10 percent of households buy 10 or more cartridges a year, giving a potential saving of £90 each per year, if they switched to compatible cartridges. Additionally  66 percent say a cheaper price is likely to encourage them to switch from printer manufacturers cartridges to retailers’ versions, while 43 percent would be motivated to switch cartridges because of environmental credentials.

HP grabs printer market share

The overall printer market saw revenue surge 14 percent in the second quarter to $13.3 billion, according to IDC. Hewlett-Packard continued to gain share.

Among the notable points from IDC:

  • IDC expects that the printer market will bounce back through 2010, but competition will heat up.
  • Inkjet printers have 66 percent share of the printer market. Meanwhile, inkjet printers posted 14 percent unit growth in the second quarter with 19 million units. That’s the most growth since 2003.
  • Laser printers posted the strongest growth with units up 25 percent to 9 million in the second quarter. Monochrome laser printers accounted for 83 percent of the market.

Here’s a look at the standings:

Metawatch, has and continues to recommend only Canon and Epson series of printers as they offer headless inkjet cartridges thereby enabling you to purchase lower cost inkjet supplies.

Their increased robustness of the imbedded heads in their printers also ensure a longer lasting reliability.

Back to School Buyer’s Guide: Saving on Supplies

OK, now that it is time to get you children all set up for school and supplies making sure your inkjet printer is working, and that you have a cost effective solution is important.

First and foremost if you are still buying OEM supplies for your inkjet printer you are loosing money, and it is time to rethink how to go about saving money.

Here are three questions that every owner should consider BEFORE purchasing additional supplies:

1.  How much does it cost to purchase an entire set of replacement ink or toner? 

2. What kind of printing will I be doing and what type of paper will I need to accomplish it? 

3. Does the brand offer a low cost alternative if I purchase a certain model?  Does the manufacturer offer high capacity cartridges and what are the potential savings?

Once you’ve answered these three questions, you can start considering your options whether it is choosing a different manufacturer, an alternative form of ink, using off brand paper or perhaps using a rewards program.

We have found the most cost effective suppliers of inkjet (Third Party Products) are the Canon and Epson lines of inkjet printers that HAVE the HEADS built into the printer, and not attached as part of the inkjet cartridge. The reason being is that the replacement cartridges only contain ink and no sophisticated electronics and are therefore cheaper to manufacture and purchase. You can typically purchase their cartridges for under $5.00 e.a.  versus up to $60 for some OEM cartridges.

If your printer has the head as part of the cartridge then chances are there are no third party products available (except refurbished), and they are not nearly as reliable based on their increased complexity, and limited lifespan design.They are a lot more expensive to boot.

Once you have decided if you are going to take the plunge and purchase a new printer (Epson or Canon) then you must make sure that their are 3rd party cartridges available for the printer your are looking at purchasing.(What they are not available for all printers !) Nope, due to the competition in this marketplace the manufacturers many years back started to add electronic chips to their cartridges, to track ink usage, as well as imbed some proprietary identification code, that needs to be re-engineered by the Third parties before products become available on the market. This normally takes about 6-9 months (we have seen up to 2 years) before you’ll see products being available.

So this is one instance where buying the latest and greatest will not only cost you more, but you will not be able to tkae advantage of 3rd party cartridge products for at least 6-9 months after purchase. (There are no guarantees)

SO look for those clearance sales at the big box stores (Future Electronics, Best Buy, Costco) and take the plunge.

 

Don’t be tempted by the low price of the HP, Lexmark, Kodak or Dell inkjet, as you will pay the price for cartridges later. Look for the Canon or Epson… albeit harder to find, you’ll be happy in the end.

Earth Day Inkjet News

The Environmental Protection Agency says it is not truly recycled unless it is reused — through remanufacture, no matter what "it" is.

We are pleased to tell you that Metawatch sells only Remanufactured HP products.

Metawatch‘s particular contribution to saving the world’s environment has taken the form of selling remanufactured (HP) & generic (Canon & Epson) inkjet printer cartridges.

1. According to statistics available in 1998 an estimated 800,000 laser cartridges are sold every week. It is estimated only 240,000 are recycled. That means a potential of 560,000 one-time-used cartridges go to landfills every week! (And this was before the "explosion" in inkjet printer use!) The plastic used in a typical cartridge is industrial-grade and takes approximately 1,000 years to decompose. Our 6,000 ain’t that big a dent in the problem, but it is 1,000 years in our local landfills we’re talking about.

2. On average, three quarts of oil are used to make each new cartridge. That would mean we kept 4,500 gallons of oil from being used by some manufacturer. It is estimated 30 percent of all print cartridges are now recycled, not at all sure what that comes out in keeping down the cost of a barrel of oil.

Help us save the world, and buy HP Remanufactured Cartridges at Metawatch today.

Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, HP Japan, and Lexmark to kick off support for UNEP via collaborative ink cartridge collection effort

Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, HP Japan, and Lexmark to kick off support for UNEP via collaborative ink cartridge collection effort

– TOKYO, Japan, March 23, 2010 –

Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, HP Japan and Lexmark announced today that, as part of their Ink Cartridge Homecoming Project, a collaborative effort to collect used consumer ink cartridges, the six companies would begin making donations to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP, HQ: Nairobi, Kenya) on April 1, 2010.

The Ink Cartridge Homecoming Project, launched in April 2008, is a cooperative effort by six print device manufacturers and the Japan Post Group to collect used ink cartridges. The project was started with the belief that companies marketing inkjet printers have a social responsibility to recycle used ink cartridges and should work towards the creation of a recycling-based society through conservation efforts.

Representing a new facet of the Ink Cartridge Homecoming Project, the six companies will provide UNEP with donations to support its various activities targeting such global environmental issues as global warming, climate change, threats to biodiversity, and the efficient use of resources. By providing indirect assistance to UNEP activities, including forest protection and biodiversity conservation, the project will attain a higher level of social significance and take an increasingly active approach in global environmental protection.

Every six months, the Ink Cartridge Homecoming Project will make a donation to UNEP of three yen for every ink cartridge returned to any of the ink cartridge collection boxes installed at 3,639* major post offices and select local government offices across Japan. The first donation period will run from October 2009 to March 2010, with subsequent donations to be made every six months thereafter.

The six companies would like to ask its customers to help promote ink cartridge collection and recycling in an effort to contribute to society through donations to support UNEP’s environmental conservation activities.

The Ink Cartridge Homecoming Project’s UNEP donation activities will be featured at the Ink Cartridge Homecoming Project booth during the Interactive Fair for Biodiversity, which will be held concurrently with the 10th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP10) in Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture, from October 11 to 29, 2010.

This marks the first time for the private sector in Japan to contribute to environmental conservation activities in the Asia-Pacific region through donations to UNEP, an indication of UNEP’s strong support for the project’s cause and content.
