For those new to the world of office printing, it’s worth pointing out that Canon toner cartridges are for use with laser printers, while their ink cartridges are for use with inkjet printers.



What is Canon toner?


Canon toner is made up of a combination of microscopic plastic particles, carbon, and pigments. There are housed in the cartridge as a dry powder, whereas ink cartridges contain pigment particles in a suspension of gas or liquid. While inkjet printers spray the pigment and the carrier liquid onto the paper, laser printers use an entirely different process, resulting in a more-defined print that dries much quicker.



How laser printers work


The process used by laser printers is known as heat transference. This involves using lasers to beam what will be printed onto a cylindrical, metal drum. The drum uses static electricity to attract the Canon toner before rolling it onto the paper. As the cylinder rolls against the paper, it heats up and melts the toner onto the page in the form of print. Documents printed using Canon printer toner are dry to the touch as soon as they’ve been printed, significantly reducing the risk of smudging.



Types of Canon printer toner cartridges


Generally speaking, there are three types of toner cartridges: OEM cartridges, compatible toner cartridges, and remanufactured cartridges. Knowing the difference between them can help you choose which is best for the job.

  • • Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) cartridges are those that have been made by the manufacturer of the printer they are designed to be used with. All our Canon printer toner cartridges have been made by Canon. OEM cartridges are perfect for when you want to guarantee high-definition print. In addition, because they are made specifically for use in Canon printers, Canon toner cartridges are less likely to dry out or gum up the printhead nozzles.
  • • Compatible toner cartridges are those that have been made by a third party with no connection to the OEM. While they can be just as good as OEM cartridges, you need to be sure that your supplier is reputable and reliable. All our compatible Canon toner cartridges have been rigorously tested to ensure they meet our high standards and those of our customers. Cheaper than OEM cartridges, they’re ideal for bulk printing and jobs where high-definition text and images aren’t a priority.
  • • Remanufactured toner cartridges are OEM cartridges that have been used, sent back to the manufacturer, and refilled.



Can you recycle Canon toner cartridges?


If keeping your carbon footprint to a minimum is essential to you and your clients, Canon operates a free Canon toner cartridge-recycling programme. You can choose to either recycle individual cartridges or recycle them in bulk. To return up to ten Canon printer toner cartridges, all you need to do is fill in a request form, and they'll email you instructions on how to use the service, along with links to free-postage labels.

Should you need to return more than ten cartridges, fill in this request form, and Canon will send you two boxes, each with the capacity for up to 25 toner cartridges. Be sure only to send back OEM Canon toner cartridges, as the company will not deal with compatible versions. Using this free service helps to keep thousands of cartridges out of landfill and minimises their impact on the environment.



The benefits of high-yield toner cartridges


The cost of print can be restrictive to smaller businesses and sole traders. Knowing how to maximise what you get from Canon printer toner cartridges is the best way to get the job done while watching what you spend. Canon toner cartridges come in two yields: original and high-yield. Original yield cartridges can print between 2,100 pages and 2,400 pages. By comparison, their high-yield counterparts can print around 7,600 pages. While they might cost a little more, high-yield Canon toner cartridges soon pay for themselves and offer the chance to undertake larger print runs.
