Inkjet Refilling Services, a better way to print 

Up to 65% value.  InkCenter_sm

Many customers are taking advantage of the cost savings – up to 65% versus buying new cartridges. Our patented InkCenter provides a high performance system for cartridge refilling designed for the retail environment. Our precise refill process carefully cleans, fills, and tests each cartridge to ensure quality and reliability.


Test-PrintLike new quality.  

We use 27 unique premier pigment and dye inks, creating outstanding print quality similar to manufacturer brand name cartridges. With exceptional quality control standards, our precise refill system carefully cleans, fills, and tests each cartridge to ensure flawless performance. All of our inks closely match original manufacturer’s ink quality – we are sure you’ll be satisfied with both color ‘pop’ and image longevity performance.


More printed pages.  Paper-Stack-Comparison_sm

Our patented vacuum seal technology completely fills the empty cartridge, automatically eliminating trapped air, which maximizes ink volume and number of pages per refill. Our refilled cartridges last as long, and often longer, than original cartridges. Results of the most recent tests by QualityLogic showed that refill yields (pages) exceeded original cartridge’s published yields by 10-20% in all cases.


Low-on-Ink-merge1_smMessage alerts. 

Please note refill customers may experience “alerts” when using refilled cartridges. These nuisance messages are simply deterrents created by manufacturers and should be bypassed by pressing “OK”, “proceed”, “continue”, “accept”, etc.  Refilling extends the life of ink cartridges and DOES NOT impact your printer warranty; for more information click here.




Eco-friendly. Environment_Sustainability_Cartridge1_sm

Think refill not landfill; reusing is the PUREST form of recycling. On-site inkjet refilling delivers a reliable, eco-friendly solution to retail environments. Each year more than a billion inkjet cartridges and packaging end up in landfills.  By reusing your cartridges, you can have an immediate positive impact on our environment. In addition, our refilling services reuse plastic cartridges without voiding the printer warranty.
