SPONSORED: Print Supplies - The Real Deal

HP on the drawbacks of using imitation print supplies

Imitation ink and toner cartridges can be enticing, but can damage your printer and will produce poor-quality prints, require more service calls or could end up in landfill.

Significant gaps in reliability and performance may lead to incremental expenses that can ultimately leave users in the red - ongoing costs that weigh on you and your customers.

And that's only the hit to customers' bottom line. If users choose underperforming and potentially damaging imitations instead of HP Original products, there could also be environmental repercussions.

Imitations use more energy and more fossil fuels which can contribute to a larger carbon footprint than original HP supplies. Furthermore, the vast majority of imitations will go to landfill because manufacturers fail to collect their own products.

At HP our printing technology is rigorously engineered to meet stringent environmental guidelines.
