If you've opted for a snazzy Hewlett Packard (HP) printer then we can't say we'd blame you. A firm contender in every race within the printing world, HP are printer giants that won't be leaving any time soon. But how can you get the best out of your HP printer? With so many different ink cartridges and toner cartridges available it can be difficult to get to the bottom of what will simply make your printer work in the way you need and want it to.

The aim of this blog post is to quickly give you the lowdown on what is avilable for your HP printer and which of these options is best for you, so that is exactly what we hope to do! If you need any further guidance please don't hesitate to get in touch. We're on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ too - just give us a nudge and we'll be happy to help.


1. HP Ink Cartridges

Now we're sure that your standard ink cartridges are the printer ink you're most familiar with. You get 4 - black, magenta, cyan and yellow and different levels of each combine to make any colour you could ever want in the whole world, which is quite magical really. What isn't magical, however, is the price that ink cartridges are. For a full replacement set you're looking at upwards of £55, which is a large whack of money to pay every time your ink runs out on top of the £100 or so you already paid for a printer! One option which you'll see by clicking on 'HP Ink Cartridges' is our range of refillable dye ink options. These are ink cartridges with a twist, and allow you to manually refill the ink (which comes with the purchase) - saving you that hefty cost. We've got lots of videos on doing these sort of things, so perhaps a little tricky at first, with our guidance you could save a lot of money. We'd perhaps recommend that either your standard ink cartridges are the best choice for the very rich (ha!) or those who will print only very occasionally. 


2. CISS for HP Printers

Continuous ink supply systems are one of our specialities here at City Ink Express. Your ink cartridges come attached to a lovely ink tank which is filled of the printer blood which makes your work come to life on paper. This is a much cheaper option if you're looking at printing a lot - and again, we've got lots of handy tutorials to help you input this fantastic little CISS system to your HP Printer. One of these continuous ink systems can save you up to 80% on your printing costs which is so important if you're printing a lot of stuff. 

3. HP Toner Cartridges

Toner cartridges are the cousin of your standard ink cartridge, and essentially are provide your printer ink in a powder form as opposed to the gooey stuff that gets everywhere and stains! Toner cartridges are most often found in laser printers, so if you have an HP laser printer then a toner cartridge will be what you'll need. Luckily for you - we have them by the bundle ready for you to replace quickly and cheaply at any time! 


4. HP Printer Bundles 

If you're yet to purchase your HP printer but you know that you want to, or if you know your old printer is on his way to the big PC World in the sky then you might need one of our HP printer bundles. With a HP printer bundle, you can choose the HP printer model from the list available (different printers vary in price of course) and it will come fitted with a CISS system so you can print to your heart's content! The beauty of our HP printer bundles? You get a great printer, a full continuous ink system which will save you stacks of cash on your printer and we'll set it up for you - so you have literally no work to do. So what are you waiting for?
