Stylus Photo R220 cartridges ' or to be absolutely sure of getting the best results and not lots of links for Epson
Printers, you should type ' Epson Stylus Photo R220 ink cartridges '. You would then see The INK Store at the top of the
search results, where you would be able to order your cartridges at the best price with delivery to the UK and Europe.
People who use inkjet cartridges are constantly encouraged to recycle the cartridge to save landfill. The truth is that
companies want your empty cartridges as some have resale value. The cartridges that do not have resale value such as
Epson empty cartridges, have no recycle system set up for them. Hundreds of tons of these cartridges have ended up in
the landfills. Surely the plastic from these ink tanks would be reusable? Of course it would, but it would be non cost
effective to process it, which is why nobody wants them or cares what happens to them. The only uses for a micro chip on
a cartridge are, to make it difficult to reuse the cartridge after refilling & to scare customers enough not to use
new cartridges made by other companies. The reasons given by the designers and manufacturers of the original equipment
is that the micro chip holds essential information to communicate with the printer and is a vital piece of equipment.
Previous models manufactured before the micro chipped models, functioned perfectly well and did not suffer from
unnecessary rejection of cartridges caused by chip failure. Some makes and models of printer such as HP & Lexmark,
use cartridges with the print head attached to the cartridge. These are patented and cannot be manufactured by other
companies, therefore they have to be remanufactured. This means that the original empty cartridge has to be used and
only the non patented parts can be replaced or modified. There is no law against refilling cartridges, in fact its your
right to do so. Remanufacture is a more affordable way to replace a cartridge that has failed. However, it is not the
most cost effective way of replenishing ink. This is why refill services are available, freeing you from the chore and
mess and keeping your costs down. Be careful, as a lot of these services will charge almost as much as a new replacement
cartridge to refill your old one and most companies never refill your cartridge, they replace it with one that had been
filled earlier, somebody else's. This may be in poor condition compared to your cartridge, the ink may not flow
correctly, the wrong inks may be used and the circuit may not be working correctly. We at The INK Store always refill
your cartridge and always guarantee a good flow on cartridges even when they have not been regularly used or maintained
by the customer. Having said that, there is a time when a cartridge cannot be reused due to ink hardening inside caused
through lack of use or too long a waiting period before sending an empty cartridge for refilling. At this point, no
matter what procedures we use on the cartridge, it usually refuses to allow any further flow through the print head
nozzles and is rendered unfit for any further use. We regularly decontaminate colour cartridges as part of the service.
Contamination of ink colours occurs when the customer puts the cartridge in a plastic bag, places tape over the print
head or does not insert fully into a transit / storage clip. More than half of the colour cartridges we receive for
refilling are colour contaminated. We do not refill empty toner cartridges, but we do sell remanufactured replacements.
Our main line is inkjet cartridges and we probably offer the most diverse range and offer the best after sales service
and help & advice. Some printers use separate individual colour cartridges ( Black / Cyan / Magenta / Yellow / Light
Cyan / Light Magenta / Red / Blue / Green / Optimiser / Grey / Photo Black / Light Black / Matte Black ) and many other
types. These were developed so that you may change an individual colour instead of having to throw away a cartridge
which still has other ink colours remaining when one ink colour becomes empty, minimising waste.
