Technology marches on, and the faster it marches the faster things change. There are all sorts of things that have changed even from last year to this year, and you can know, for certain, that there are going to be all sorts of changes in technology next year and the year after. This can become very confusing if you’re not someone who follows technological changes religiously. For instance did you know that there is a huge difference between inkjet cartridges and laser toner cartridges? You may be wondering what the difference is and how it affects your printing.

Inkjet Cartridges

First let’s discuss inkjet cartridges. Inkjet cartridges work by having a few different colors inside of one small cartridge. Most inkjet printers require two printers: one that has black ink and one that has color ink. The ink then sprays onto the paper very gently in very tiny little dots. If you take out a powerful magnifying glass you’ll be able to see the little dots that the inkjet printer actually uses to make the document or photo look the way that you want it to look. This is vastly different from how a laser printer and toner works.

Laser Toners

When you purchase laser toner what you’re actually purchasing is only one color. The biggest difference you’ll see immediately between inkjet printers and those that use this type of cartridge is that there are four major colors you’ll have to purchase if you want to get color. These colors are: black, yellow, cyan, and magenta. Instead of purchasing one or two cartridges, you’ll be required to purchase four if this is the type of printer you have. Another thing you’ll notice is that instead of simply being able to put the cartridge right into the printer you have to actually shake the cartridge first. This is because unlike inkjet printer cartridges the laser toner cartridges actually tend to settle a bit, so they need to be shaken up before they’re used. If your laser printer goes for a long time without printing, you’ll also have to shake up the cartridge before you use it. This is especially true for Brother toner cartridges

There are a few things to know about this type of printer. Firstly it’s very economic to use. Because not only can it print a huge number of pages on one set of cartridges, but it can actually run even if you have an empty cartridge! Inkjet cartridges are not able to do this, and you must have both cartridges filled before you can use your printer. With laser printers, however, you can run the printer even if you have one color that isn’t fully working. Don’t expect the color to look right if you’re printing in color, but if you plan on printing a black and white document it should work perfectly.

There are many differences between inkjet printers and those that take laser toner cartridges, so d the research before you purchase any type of printer so that you can make sure that you get the right type of printer for your needs.
