Lexmark c522n

Another class-leading colour laser printer is the Lexmark c522n. This printer is also exceptionally fast, powerful, and packed full of features – though despite this, its intuitive interface makes it a doddle to use!

The LaserJet 1000 series from Hewlett-Packard was a line of black and white laser printers designed with fast, efficient printing in mind. These models were extremely popular among businesses and corporations, and while HP have now discontinued the LaserJet 1000 series, the printers are still being used in homes and offices all over the world.


Speed is one major advantage that laser printers have over inkjet models. If you need to print a massive, multi-page document, you’ll find that a laser printer gets the job done much faster – you won’t even have to wait for the ink to dry! Being unable to print in colour, the LaserJet 1000 printers obviously aren’t much use when you need to print photographs or images, but if you’re printing out business documents or ten-thousand word dissertations, something like the LaserJet 1320 is absolutely perfect.


Of course, the continued use of LaserJet 1000 appliances means that there is still a demand for LaserJet 1000 toner. If you still use one of these printers – and why wouldn’t you? – you’re probably well aware that, in spite of the  fact that the printers themselves are no longer widely available, compatible toner cartridges are still exceptionally easy to come by.


And if you need more toner for your LaserJet 1000 printer, you’re already in the right place! Here at City Ink, we sell a wide variety of HP toner products, and regardless of which HP printer you use, you’re sure to find the right cartridge at a very reasonable price.

If you have had a conversation recently with someone regarding printing ink we can pretty much guess how it went. The truth is printer ink is an expensive commodity these days – so much so in some cases it costs nearly as much as the printer itself. While at City Ink Express we sell a range of cost effective printing options, there are some more general things you can do keep the costs down.


Stay Conscientious

Think: do you really need to print that document off? The beauty of our computer-centric lives is that we can store and archive documents quickly and retrieve them with ease, so printing them out needn’t always be an option. There are times when you need to have a document in hand, but for the rest of the time stick it in a PDF, and stick that PDF in an email – it’s free remember!



We’re not sure how many of you know this, but different fonts actually use more ink. For example, Century Gothic uses considerably less than Ariel, so much so that a company printing 250 pages per week would save $80 a year by switching (research according to a study conducted by Now we’re not saying make this change exactly, but certainly be aware of the potential savings.


Printer for a Purpose

 We are going to refrain from mentioning our particular printers, but what you should consider is that there is a printer for every purpose, and understanding this will help you save money in the long run. It may sound counter-intuitive, but it may be actually be cheaper in the long run to own two printers. If you are going to print off black text documents a laser printer is what you need, but then for any kind of photos a colour LaserJet would be appropriate; having a printer that can do both may seem sensible, but in everyday costs you’ll actually be paying more.

City Ink toner page


Purchasing a new toner cartridge over the internet may seem like decidedly risky business to some people. After all, there are thousands of different printer models out there in the world, and there’s no way to know whether or not you’ve bought the right cartridge for your model until...well, until it’s too late.


With so many mistakes just waiting to be made (what if you accidentally order a Brother DCP-9055CDN cartridge instead of a Brother DCP-9055CDW cartridge?!), you may well decide that it’s safer just to go to a shop.


But that would be the wrong decision, mainly because you’d be missing out on the great prices that online stores can offer. Just in case you’re sceptical about ordering your toner from City Ink Express, here’s a step-by-step guide that will make sure you get the right cartridge:


Step 1 – Click over to our main Toner Cartridges page.


Step 2 – Click on the button that corresponds to your printer manufacturer. For this example, we’ll say that you have a Brother printer, but we also cater to hundreds of models from HP, Canon, and other big names.


Step 3 – On the manufacturer page, find your printer’s specific model (e.g. Brother DCP-7055) and click on it to see a list of products that are suitable for your printer.


Step 4 – Choose your preferred product (we offer Original and Compatible options), enter your required quantity, and click ‘Add To Basket’.


Step 5 – Go to your basket and, if you’re ready to complete your purchase, proceed to the checkout.


It really is as simple as that! As long as you know the model you’re shopping for, it’s extremely easy to find a compatible toner cartridge. We recommend double-checking the model number on your chosen product before you finalise your order; a lot of the models have very similar names, so it’s always good to make sure before you part with any cash!

Assorted Brother cartridges

In a market as diverse as the printing industry, it's important for companies like City Ink to cover as many bases as possible. It's one thing to stock toner for Brother printers, but actually providing toner for all the different Brother models is a whole other challenge.


Brother have been making laser printers since time immemorial, and as you'd imagine, they've released many, many different models over the years. It's nigh-on impossible to sell a toner cartridge for every single Brother printer ever made...but we do our best anyway, and we're proud to have one of the most comprehensive ranges on the net.


So whether you use a Brother DCP-7055 or a HL-2130, you can rest assured that we've got all the toner products you could possibly need. From heavy-duty business printers like the Brother DCP-9055CDN to state-of-the-art multifunction printers like those found in Brother's MFC range, we cater to almost any Brother model you'd care to name.


Of course, if you do find that we don't stock any toner for your printer, please don't give up hope. It's always worth getting in touch with the City Ink team; we may well have something to suit your printer after all, and if we do, we'll do everything we can to help you out.

Toner cartridges for Brother printers

Purchasing a new toner cartridge from our website is a stunningly straightforward process. Once you’ve found the page that corresponds to your printer’s manufacturer – Brother, for example – all you have to do is select your model number (e.g. DCP-7055) from our comprehensive list, click ‘Add To Basket’, and follow the checkout process from there. Simple!


Having said that...there is one important decision that you’ll have to make before you place your order. We at City Ink Express do our best to offer a wide range of toner products, and that often means that we offer a choice of original cartridges and compatible cartridges.


Original vs. Compatible – What’s the Difference?


First of all, don’t panic – regardless of which option you take, you can rest assured that you’ll get a top-quality product that does your printer proud. The difference is that our original cartridges are made by the same company that manufactured your printer (Brother, in this example), while our compatible cartridges are made by third-party manufacturers like Fotorite.


Pros and Cons


As you’d expect, original toner cartridges offer unsurpassable reliability and print quality. On the negative side, they are more expensive than their compatible counterparts, and as such, they offer less value for money (i.e. you’ll get fewer pages for each pound you spend).


While our compatible cartridges can still produce an exceptionally high print quality, most of them cannot compete with the genuine article – original Brother cartridges will always give better results than compatible third-party products. Of course, the compatible cartridges are cheaper, with a higher page yield for the price you pay.


So what’s my best bet for Brother toner?


We want to make it clear that there’s no wrong answer here. All the cartridges we sell (original and compatible alike) have passed our exacting quality control tests, so you can always buy with confidence. Our cost-effective compatible cartridges will do the job perfectly well, but if you simply must have an original Brother cartridge, we can help you out on that front too.
