WHY TONERWISE?

TonerWise sells certified remanufactured ink and toner, a 52% carbon footprint reduction. Together, we can tackle modern issues like single-use plastic waste in landfills and oceans, and unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions.

By reusing plastic ink and toner cartridges, TonerWise helps agencies, institutions and businesses reduce waste through the reuse, remanufacturing and recycling of spent ink and toner cartridges.

Our products are made in North America in ISO-certified facilities, so we are TAA compliant!

ENVIRONMENTALLY PREFERABLE

Environmentally preferable cartridges include our selection of remanufactured and high-yield cartridges.

High-yield cartridges usually contain about twice as much ink or toner as an equivalent standard-yield cartridge, which translates into more printed pages per cartridge. TonerWise "extra" high yield cartridges exceed the page rating of OEM equivalent cartridges to save even more, and reduce waste. Reusing cartridges cuts plastic waste disposal at landfills and saves energy. Less energy is used to produce remanufactured cartridges than to create new ones. 

Remanufactured cartridges also help state agencies meet their State Agency Buy Recycled Campaign (SABRC) compliance requirements.

PRO-CLIMATE

The manufacture of a brand-new toner cartridge releases approximately 4.6kg CO2 – ranging from the 3 quarts of petroleum to be drilled and refined, to the manufacturing process of both the cartridge and the toner. We reuse the plastic cartridge instead!

The cheapest toner, called compatible toner, are BRAND NEW cartridges. Compatible cartridges are typically manufactured overseas with low quality plastic (than cannot be re-used), and are made without regard to American OEM intellectual property.

ANTI-WASTE

Reusing cartridges diverts plastic waste from disposal at landfills. Each year, 1 billion pounds of plastic cartridges are disposed of in landfills, with many cartridges turning up in our waterways, and ultimately our oceans. Over time, ocean plastics degrade into ever smaller microplastics, and are ingested by marine life.

COMPREHENSIVE QUALITY STANDARDS

Product quality is our number one priority. Satisfied customers are long term customers.

That’s why 100% of Certified by TonerWise products pass a rigorous post-test straight off the assembly line, testing each product in an OEM printer to guarantee our customers reliable performance every time.

CERTIFIED BY TONERWISE

We repair or replace any necessary or worn components with brand new parts – carefully checking all sub-assemblies for top working condition. When you choose ink and toner products Certified by TonerWise, you can be confident that your product works. You can be confident that you will get the page yield and hassle-free experience you paid for.

Every production phase, from Split and Clean to Packaging, is overseen by experienced quality assurance auditors who test and analyze performance against established benchmarks. We guarantee 100% post testing of every cartridge before it leaves our facilities.

CERTIFIED CONFIDENCE

When you purchase a Certified by TonerWise cartridge, you’ll have the same confidence in your refurbished product as you would a brand-new one – without the new OEM price tag. Save significant money while still getting high quality output.

Here’s what you get at a glance:

  • 1-year warranty
  • Certified Comprehensive Inspection
  • If any defects do arise, your toner is replaced free of charge
  • Your refurbished products are truly “like new,” with special savings of 30% or more.

Manufacturing Expertise with Global Automation and Robotics Network

In our ISO 9001:2015 certified factories, the twin tools of Automation and Robotics Engineering have increased quality in all facilities. This efficient, automated production consistency enables TonerWise to produce the highest quality products in the market, with defect rates that rival that of OEM ink and toner products.

KEY ADVANTAGES LEADING TO INCREASED ACCURACY, CONSISTENCY AND EFFICIENCY:

  1. Repeatability of high-precision processes
  2. Elimination of variability in processes with a dramatic effect on quality
  3. Built-in process versatility to support a nimble manufacturing environment

Product Development & Testing

To ensure that our products meet or exceed expectations with each printed page, we subject our cartridges to a process known as “Advanced Lifecycle Testing”.

This extensive, ongoing battery of tests has been specifically designed to ensure that our cartridges perform as well or better than the OEM, from the first page printed right to the last. Advanced Lifecycle Testing includes OEM benchmarking, rigorous component and raw material testing, environmental chamber testing, pre and post-production testing and a centralized quality monitoring system to ensure consistent quality and performance.

STMC Compliant Company
STMC

STMC stands for the Standardized Test Methods Committee. The International Imaging Technology Council (Int'l ITC) administers the STMC program, assures its proper usage and polices against misuse of the STMC program and logos. For more than a decade, the STMC symbol has been the remanufacturing industry's indicia of quality. The test methods are used to evaluate toner printer cartridge performance. STMC uses certain ASTM test methods to evaluate a finished cartridge in comparison to another cartridge, typically an OEM cartridge.

R2 Responsible Recycling
R2 CERTIFICATION

R2 Certification, also known as Responsible Recycling Certification, provides verification of Clover’s environmentally responsible, safe, and transparent management of toner cartridges, cell phones, and other consumer electronics. R2 Certification is facility specific and has been awarded Clover Environmental Solutions (CES) Mexicali, Mexico collections processing operation center.

TOP BUYING TIPS FOR INK AND TONER

  1. Remanufactured cartridges where the spent cartridge has been cleaned and any defective or worn parts replaced.  A “refilled” cartridge is not the same as a “remanufactured” cartridge.
  2. A cartridge company that guarantees their remanufactured cartridges meet or exceed the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) standards.
  3. Ask supplier for a cartridge to test.  Evaluating the performance will help reduce paper waste caused by poor quality prints.
  4. Cartridge take-back programs.
  5. Independently certified manufacturing processes (STMC) in ISO-certified facilities.
