The Holidays are coming up and like the rest of us, you probably don't know what to get your friends and relatives. Below are 5 reasons why you should be giving the gift of ink this year.

5. Ink cartridges make great "stocking stuffers". With low prices from, ink cartridges are appropriately priced (and sized) to make a great stocking stuffer.

4. Ink cartridges are better than sweaters. Sweaters are only useful during winter months, and if you are in a place that does not get cold during the winters, like us in Florida, it is mostly useless. They are also itchy at times. Ink cartridges and toners can be used year around, for many different things. A sweater can only keep you warm..and itchy.

3. Everyone uses ink. From children printing out pictures of their favorite cartoons, to grown men printing out pictures of their favorite cartoons, everyone needs ink. Ink is great for printing out letters, cards, business reports, graphs, directions, etc. The uses of ink are endless.

2. Our ink won't kill our Earth. Unlike some holiday presents, Clickinks's ink and toner cartridges are eco-friendly and will not contribute to the piling up of the land fills. We believe in contributing to the health of this beautiful planet.

1. Buy the ink for yourself and print cards. Giving people cards for holidays will save you a lot of money. You will save in two ways:
  1. By buying cartridges from
  2. By not buying expensive gifts for your relatives and friends.
Happy Holidays from!

Is your cartridge not fitting in?

Is your ink cartridge not fitting in?

A common issue with most ink jet cartridges, mostly with Brother cartridges, is that the cartridge feels like it doesn’t want to snap into place. This issue may be caused from the plastic covering the ink hole, the plastic film over the hole where the ink comes out. Some times the plastic film over the ink hole is thicker than normal and when trying to press it into the printer the plastic won’t pierce like it normally would.

Next time your cartridge is not snapping into place, remove the cartridge and look to see if there is plastic covering the ink hole. Try breaking the plastic yourself with a pen or needle, and then reinsert it. Don’t worry about ink leaking out. Cartridges have mechanisms within them to prevent ink from leaking out unless inside of a printer.
