Three reasons why you should go GENUINE with your consumables!

Published date: 15/08/2018 14:46


Like with anything in life, you want the best for yourself, your family and your dearest friends. So why would you treat your printer any different? Give your printer the best in life! Yes I know it is an inanimate object (and it would be pretty weird to love your printer the same as you would your grandmother) but still, the price is costly if you don’t treat your printer right! As the printer is one of the most expensive assets of any business, whether big or small, it’s crucial to keep that little rumbling machine in the corner of the office working efficiently by having regular services and using the correct original consumables that are made for your printer- as you DO NOT want the headache of it breaking down prematurely and leaving the office printer-less. Just imagine the drama and mishap that could cause for any business?! Important documents won’t be printed, letter heads won’t go out, invoices and receipts won’t ship – the list goes on. The best thing you can do to keep your printer working for as long as possible is to use genuine toners. Yes I said it! You cannot expect a flower to blossom if you water it with lemonade so how can you expect your printer to work efficiently without using the correct tools for the job? The correct tools in this case are genuine toners. Yes, I know non-genuine toners are the cheaper option and yes I also understand the distributors of said compatible toner make the wildest promises such as “This toner will be able to print over 25 million pages with one single use” – come on, did you genuinely believe that?!  But anyway, compatible toners may be cheaper in the first instance but we all know using non-genuine toner in the long run can have devastating and costly damages to your printer and bank balance. Make the right choice – go genuine!There are many fantastic reasons to go genuine with your toner and I will break down three main reasons why you and your customer should ditch the fake.


1. The first, and probably the most important reason for many businesses, is saving money. In the current climate, it is more important than ever for companies to keep a tight grip on their purse strings so using genuine toners and consumables is definitely a good option to get good quality for a good price. Although initially, genuine toners are a tiny bit more expensive than the non-genuine toner counterparts, genuine toners will save you money in the long run. Genuine toners like KYOCERA have a low total cost of ownership as they have a high yield which means you and your customer can print thousands of pages. Genuine Kyocera consumables also provide a high level of durability and quality that is second to none and deliver crisp prints which would not require multiple reprints and multiple toner changes. Saving you and your customer money on ink, paper, toner, energy, and printer downtime. What’s not to like about that?!


2. Reason number two: genuine supplies give you optimum printer performance and outstanding print quality. Quality drives excellent performance. By using the right consumables for your printer like KYOCERA Document Solutions toner for example it will work better and last longer. Kyocera toners contain ceramic cleaning beads which are essential to ensure the printer drum is clean and particle free. This is particularly important as our drums are designed to last several hundred thousand copies.


3. A major factor, and our third reason why genuine is the way to go for consumables, is because they have been designed and produced with the environment in mind. Unfortunately with non-genuine toners the original manufacturer has no control over the substances used in compatible toner which unfortunately may mean the emissions produced by the equipment to make them may not comply with voluntary environmental standards. KYOCERA has been manufacturing products that are as friendly to the office environment as they are to the global environment. Their unique chemical production process minimises environmental impact by using only a limited volume of water and no organic solvents. You wouldn’t expose children to harmful substances; by not knowing the substances used, you could be possibly exposing harmful substances into schools, hospitals and the work place so it is best to always use the correct original toner directly from the manufacturer to ensure the safety of those around you. Kyocera’s consumables are safer for your office employees and safer for the environment. I really like this and not saying you should change it. However I do find the emotional element works well – the article is personable so what if you said something along the lines of you wouldn’t expose children to harmful substances; by not knowing the substances used, you could be possibly exposing harmful substances into schools, hospitals and the work place (possibly too strong a message). In summary, if you haven’t got the message already, BUY GENUINE. It will save you money in the long run, provide you the optimum performance and prints along with being environmentally friendly– it’s a win, win, WIN! KYOCERA offer a wide range of genuine consumable products which do all three.
