New Sensient Line card

Sensient has an excellent reputation as one of the highest quality inkjet ink manufacturers. It's been the trusted brand for professional refillers/recyclers in the Australasian region for over 15 years.

The good news is that they have made modified their inks so that less inks now covers a wider range of cartridges. This reduces the number of inks that you have to stock.

Are you aware that Sensient use to manufacture inks for two of the biggest desktop printer companies?

Important : New Ways to Implement Firmware Updates from Samsung

Samsung has introduced a number of new things that can potentially cause hiccups to the aftermarket industry.

1) Firmware has been upgraded in new printer models. (So keep an eye out for any compatibility issues)
2) Samsung printer firmware can now be upgraded by just installing a new genuine toner cartridge, this is a new function of the chip on the cartridge.

As an example if your customer installs a new genuine cartridge the firmware of the printer may be upgraded. If the firmware is not compatible with the aftermarket cartridges that are already in the machine then those cartridges will fail on the spot. This is a potential nightmare for us all!

We haven't seen any major issues as of yet but we believe its best to be aware of this potential problem.

Doesn't time fly?

It has been a while since my last technical bulletin and I was thinking now would be a good time to keep everybody informed of what has been happening on the technical side of Ausjet in the last few months.

IBM Branded Cartridges

We have now in stock the IBM Brand cartridges for HP Printers. They are made by one of the largest remanufacturers in the world with the quality assurance and testing performed to IBM specifications. The cartridges are comparable to the OEM with the same page rating, quality printing and IBM's legendary reliability. All covered by an exceptional 3-year warranty.

The IBM brand cartridges are targeted as a direct replacement to the genuine product. You can now offer your customer the IBM cartridges rather than the genuine cartridge and the good news is that you can buy the IBM cartridges at a significantly lower buy price than the genuine.
It's important to remember what people will pay for a product is related to its perceived quality and brand power. People know the IBM brand and its reputation for quality! This is why the IBM brand is so powerful. IBM has consistently being one of the worlds best known brand names and it's even more recognisable than popular printer brands such as HP, Canon, Epson etc.

IBM has a long history of quality business machines dating back to the 1950s. (Flat Earth and moon hoax conspiracy believers stop reading now). The truth is without the IBM computers NASA may of never walked on the moon! They also invented the first true personal computer which in turn everybody copied and the term IBM compatibles was created. Which everybody now knows as a PC. Lexmark was also born out of IBM as Lexmark was originally the IBM printing division. Now Lexmark hardware is owned by a aftermarket printer company, how time flies and things change.

In a industry where the printer user is constantly reminded to buy genuine cartridges and that other supplies may be damaging or of lower quality. The brand power of IBM might just be the perfect foil to this misinformation and make your wallet just that little big thicker.

Cartridge Protection

A chip manufactures in mid September released a bulletin stating that a new firmware style issue had been discovered. The effected printers used the 934/935/970 series cartridges. At the time of writing we are not aware of any issues related to this with any of our chips/cartridges. The manufacturers of our chips are claiming their chips are not affected by this update.

Dye Sublimation Ink

We have started to stock dye sublimation ink for desktop printers that use the epson printhead. Dye sublimation is a process where dye sublimation ink is printed onto a dye sublimation paper. The transfer paper is then fixed to a particular product (ie mug, hat, shirt, plate etc) and heated. The heating allows the ink to transfer to the product.

We now have the dye sublimation ink and dye sublimation paper.

Remax Show in Zhuhai China

Peter and I will be travelling to the Remax show in Zhuhai China tomorrow. At the annual industry show we will get the chance to view hundreds of suppliers products. discuss various topics with our existing suppliers, listen to industry experts about the latest world industry topics and talk the talk as they say.

If you would like us to look for any particular product for you or if you have any technical issue you would like us to look further into for you. Please let me know and we will do our best for you.
Goodbye to Ted Jinks - Printer Refills
We were very sorry to hear that Ted Jinks passed away recently, Ted was the owner of the Printer Refills stores here in Brisbane. A veteran of the industry and a man who I always found to be decent, honest and very likeable. I'm not sure what the next step is for any of us, but I hope that I get the chance to have a chat to you again one day Ted.

I hope this information has been helpful to you.
