You might not think about it on the pages of your books, or
newspapers, but without the ink, there wouldn't be anything but blank sheets of
paper. Ink can be taken for granted, but its value is beyond question, and
sometimes very evident.
Did the ancient traders of the natural inks and dyes charge an arm and a leg
for those useful fluids? In any case, the problem of affordable ink is growing,
particularly since household printers became common. It seems like every house
has a printer, but everyone complains of shelling out the money to refill this
amazing machine with the simple stuff that it needs to print on paper. The fine
machinery of the modern printer is useless without ink.
Owners of these dormant machines have several options. They can buy the new
refills, which are sometimes exorbitantly expensive, or they can buy another
printer. In a surprising number of cases, people have found new printers at
prices below those of ink refill cartridges. This has a lot to do with the
complexity of marketing, but it also underscores how important and valuable ink
is in printing.

Now some companies have come up with another choice; users can refill the ink
cartridge itself at a discounted rate. Dealers apparently buy ink in bulk and
dispense it efficiently. New problems of consumer demand necessitate such
complexities. Cartridges, for example, are made with built-in sensors that can
indicate an empty cartridge before all of the available ink has run out.
Another innovation is soy ink, which is a more natural alternative to
petroleum-based inks that aids in the recycling of the printed material.
Alternative inks like soy can make the pricing of ink more flexible and give the
consumer more choices in a market that has become considerably complex.
Gone are the days of standard refill containers and easy office stocking.
These days, it pays to consider your choices very carefully when it comes to
that crucial liquid packed into a vial, bottle or cartridge. Ink has definitely
become a valuable commodity./font>
