We have applied our knowledge of printer ink and toner refilling gained over our 25 year experiences to our ReThink Ink & Toner division. Our mission statement is to make consumers and computer and consumable resellers rethink their printer consumable purchases. Our Rethink Ink & Toner division markets guaranteed new non-manufacturer ink and toner cartridges that are less expensive. We began experimenting with refilling ink and toner refilling back in 2000. We tested multiple products for years, but the failure rate was too high. Even an 85-90% success rate is not good enough to go online to re-market. After 15 years of trying to fill ink and toners in-house and trying numerous distributors, refilling businesses, on-line and EBay providers, we have developed a very high quality discounted printer ink and toner products. Our success rate for both inks and toners is over 98% with less than 5% yield differentiation from manufacturer products. Every ink and toner product is guaranteed.
