Buy Real, Buy Smart: Protect your warranty and your equipment by using Epson Genuine Inks for your Epson Printers
PHILIPPINES, April 19, 2021 – As printing becomes more accessible, an increasing number of counterfeit inks are entering the market to provide consumers with cheaper options. While it might be tempting to cut costs by purchasing non-genuine inks, doing so entails serious risks and threats.
For Epson printer users at home or in the office, managing printing requirements demands saving money while you can, but what is the true cost of buying into counterfeit inks? Here are some of the dangers of using non-genuine inks for your printer:
- Possible printer damage
Non-genuine inks purchased from unauthorized sellers may cause leaks and clogging that may lead to printer damage. Using non-genuine inks may provide savings in the short run, but it can potentially be costly with the additional servicing required when the other components in your printer have been compromised.
- Warranty void
A home or office printer is an asset, and you want to make sure that you have the best protection for your investment. Deciding to go for counterfeit inks will automatically void your Epson printer warranty, and since counterfeit inks may potentially harm your printer, the money saved on the initial purchase of non-genuine inks simply isn’t worth the potential cost of having to replace damaged parts without warranty protection.
- Higher costs
Counterfeit inks are widely available, and consumers often choose to use them believing that they provide the same performance as genuine inks. This could be a costly mistake as non-genuine supplies could pose multiple risks as mentioned above and may affect both print quality and performance.
Maintaining your printer equipment in good working condition is the key to productivity. To get the most out of your Epson printer, we recommend using only Epson genuine inks to keep your machine at optimal performance.
Epson’s genuine inks are produced following stringent quality control standards that guarantee the best performance of your printer, ink, and media. To ensure that you are purchasing an authentic Epson ink bottle, look for the Genuine Epson Color Shifting Label and Hologram Sticker on the packaging:
