Printer ink is quite literally one of the most expensive things per unit that the average household has to spend money on. Many refer to oil as black gold, but one NPR story on “All Things Considered” suggests that ink for printers is the other black gold of the modern world. In an interview on the program, a man named Eduardo Porter gave this answer to exactly how expensive printer ink is:
$4,731 a gallon of printer ink. And that was more expensive than a 1985 vintage Krug champagne.
He goes on to say that the companies that make printer ink and even the printers themselves often design these products to trap customers into one particular model of something (in this case a printer) and then charge high rates for the small things that go along with it.
You have likely experienced the squeeze of paying for printer ink yourself. If so, you want to escape this reality as soon as possible. The fact is that no one should pay more than they absolutely have to in order to obtain the printer ink that they require.
One trick to getting better prices is to buy the ink from online stores. Not only do these stores have lower overhead than a traditional retail store, but they have also purchased the ink in bulk. This means that they have received a discounted rate on it, and they are able to pass those savings on to you.

Printer ink has often been known as one of the most expensive things that the average person needs to have. While everyone wants to be able to print off all of their documents and anything else from their computer, $22 per ounce for Hewlett-Packard colored ink is outrageous. That is the current average price according to pcworld.com.

Don’t you just feel cheated buying Ink? I do and that’s why I started to look for cheaper alternatives like, compatibles, refills, recycled.Take a look at what another angry and dissatisfied UK printer user did when an error message came up, asking him to take his printer to the service centre…
Problem is that all the little inkjet blighter’s do this, so if you mainly print text letters consider buying a plain cheap mono laser printer.
From our experience we would always advise the small or home business to invest some time researching which printers are the most suitable for their use and above all most cost effective.
Canon have launched a new online tool that draws a parallel between convenience food, cost, health and printing – no they haven’t hired Gillian McKeith (is she allowed to call herself a doctor… but that’s another story). Basically, what they are saying is – yeah, it’s great to grab a burger every now and then and it won’t kill you on its own, but if you eat one every day or mealtime you’re going to grow into one unhealthy bloater.
Similarly, if you just use your nice and convenient little ink-jet printer perched at the end of your desk every now and then to print a pie chart (keeping up with the food style) – then no problem. But, use your inkjet printer for everything you just want to read once and throw away, your office stationery budget will bloat out – just like some channel 4 show about half ton people.
Anyway, back to the point – take a quick look at Canon’s how much is your printer eating up your consumables budget guide here.
