cheaper printer ink

We have two printers, a dell and a lexmark. The lexmart ink cartridges can not be refilled. It only has color ink no black so we go thru a lot of ink. The dell ink last long but still is about $20 $25 a cartridge. All I have here is eakes office supplies, and walmart to buy ink. True WM is the cheapest but it is still money I put out all the time. I have checked online and wm beats the price.

I am looking at buying a kodak printer for the cheap ink. Does anyone have one?

If you have a web address for cheap ink post it here!

Been refilling my lexmark printer cartridges at walgreens drug store. The black is only $10.00 The color is $15.00. Couple of months back they had a coupon for free ink. The lines were out the door. So far it has been working fine no dripping or smearing.
Saving me alot of money since I like to copy recipes & bills.

I know how you feel. We have an Epson that has the single color and black cartridges but they are more expensive and can't be refilled. We are lucky to have a little refill shop near us that sells off brand cartridges that work in our printer. I don't think that they last as long as the orginal Epson but they are a lot cheaper. I don't use the color much on our printer so it works well for us.

Have you tried looking in the phonebook for a refillable place near you? Call to see if they carry an off name brand that would work for you.

I'm going to send this to Amanda. I'm pretty sure that she's the one who gave me the name of the company that I used to use online to order my cartridges.

I know Amanda used to advertise 1-2-3 Inkjet.

I have used www.lasermonks.com in the past.

Warning, though, Epson printers are famous for not working with those remanufactured cartridges!! We ruined a very expensive printer to save money on ink. Epson has been sued for that but we only got $25 out of it.

it was Master Inkjets. He used to advertise with FC several years ago. I know a lot of readers and members tried them and were quite happy with the results. Here's the link http://www.masterinkjets.com/

Thanks, masterinks refill service will work for to refill my dell. No one has my lexmark ink. I bet that was why the printer was only $25?

I am still thinking about buying the kodak printer. I am looking ahead a few months since we are taking out a loan to buy for dd's service dog. I know money will be tight for a while until we move, making like a car loan payment on a dog. lol

What is this with the no tape on the label? My Post office likes everything taped down. Do you use white glue instead?
