Toner cartridges are also commonly referred to as printer toner cartridges and printer toner cartridges. Toner is a powder that is fused to paper to produce the printed output. Two of the main benefits of toner versus ink are that toner does not bleed when wet and the cost per page for toner is significantly less than ink. HP is the most popular brand in the printer industry followed closely by Xerox, Dell, Okidata, Konica-Minolta, Samsung, Brother and Lexmark.

Solid Ink Sticks
Solid ink sticks are a unique technology that was originally developed by Tektronix in 1986.

Ink sticks are solid blocks of ink (like wax) that are melted onto the paper. The technology has numerous advantages over both traditional liquid ink and toner. Solid ink produces very little waste and therefore is environmentally friendly. There is also no plastic cartridge, like toner cartridges or ink cartridges, that remains after it is used. In addition, ink sticks produce much more vibrant colors when compared to liquid ink and toner.
