OEM versus Compatible Supplies

Toner cartridges supply printers with toner, a special kind of ink that laser printers use. The cartridge itself is made of plastic and contains toner powder, carbon and coloring agents. When the toner cartridge is inserted into the printer, the ingredients transfer over to paper and fuse on to the paper as heated rollers run over them.

Toner cartridges for your copier come in essentially four types: OEM cartridges, compatible toner cartridges, remanufactured cartridges and refilled cartridges. Depending upon the cartridge purchased, the price can vary significantly. At Copier Supply Store, we buy copier parts from all major manufacturers in volume and offer wholesale prices, saving you money significantly.
