When it comes to purchasing toner cartridges and other supplies for your specific printer, the options can seem endless. With every printer there are distinct requirements in order for it to work properly.  OEM? Remanufactured? All the terms you will come across may seem overwhelming, here is our guide to understanding the difference and helping to distinguishing which cartridge works best for you.

What is OEM?

Ink Cartridges

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. These products are factory originals. These are the cartridges that come with your product at first, so you can be confident that you will receive the same color and quality as your original cartridges.

Naturally, OEM products are more expensive but don’t differ by much in quality compared to remanufactured products. Being the most genuine product, these high quality cartridges were designed for great durability and undeniable precision. For those who want to continue with the factory originals, OEM ink cartridges are the right option for you and your printer.

What is remanufactured?

Remanufactured Ink Cartridges

Remanufactured are the used but refurbished products. This “generic” product offers about the same level of quality as OEM products at a more affordable price.
