EMERYVILLE, Calif., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital cameras will be hot-
selling gifts for the holidays and consumers will be faced with finding
convenient options for printing their digital photos while staying within
their personal budgets.
Cartridge World, the world's largest retailer of ink refilling and
recycling services, offers amateur and professional photographers alike the
ability to refill existing printer cartridges for up to 50 percent less than
the price of buying new branded cartridges -- dramatically cutting the cost of
printing photos at home.
"With the holiday season quickly approaching, it's easy to take thousands
of photos at family gatherings or on vacation and leave them on a memory card
or hard drive. Unfortunately, home computers crash, and cherished images have
a chance of being lost forever," said Burt Yarkin, CEO of Cartridge World
North America. "We don't want our customers to avoid printing photos because
of the perceived high cost of printer cartridges. We want people to have the
freedom to print as many photos as they want without worrying about wasting
Cartridge World helps customers keep photo printing expenses low by making
printer ink affordable. Using Cartridge World's refilled cartridges costs
only 14 cents to print a standard 4-by-6-inch photo as opposed to using
options such as Shutterfly.com at 19 cents to 29 cents, Costco at 17 cents, or
on an Epson printer at 28 cents per photo. Refilled cartridges can also
increase savings as the photo size enlarges.
"The most convenient way to print is at home," added Yarkin. "With
Cartridge World cartridges, customers can print quality digital photos
instantly without the hassle of leaving home, ordering prints or paying for
shipping and handling."
Customers can bring their empty name-brand ink and toner cartridges into
Cartridge World locations and have them refilled while they wait, swap out an
original cartridge, or purchase one already refilled. The refill process is
quick, offers a 100 percent money-back guarantee on quality and longevity, and
at the same time, helps save the environment by keeping empty cartridges out
Cartridge World has rapidly gained the reputation as "the" retail
cartridge refilling service provider in nearly every global market. A brick-
and-mortar concept, Cartridge World locations are quickly becoming commonplace
throughout the United States. More than 275 Cartridge World locations are open
across the nation with a total of 500 stores projected to open by spring 2006.
