ACSI Bulk Inks

What are the differences between Laser Printers and Inkjet Printers?

The differences between toner and liquid ink systems are usually obvious, but not always.
  • Powdery toners are used in laser printers, in certain plain paper faxes, and in certain plain paper xerographic copiers.
  • Liquid ink is used in inkjet printers and in inkjet copiers and faxes.
  • "Laser Jet" is Hewlett Packard's name for its line of laser printers.
  • "Deskjet", "Officejet", and "Designjet" are Hewlett Packard's names for its lines of inkjet printers and plotters.
  • "Bubblejet" is Canon's name for its line of inkjet printers.
  • If the paper coming from the printer, copier, or fax you are using is warm, the system probably uses powdery toner.
  • If the ink on the paper is wet to the touch, the printer, copier, or fax you are using probably uses liquid inkjet ink.
  • If your cartridge is about as wide as a sheet of paper (9 to 12 inches or 225 to 400 mm) or larger, the system probably uses powdery toner.
  • If your cartridge is about 3 to 4 inches in size (75 to 100 mm) or smaller, your cartridge probably uses liquid inkjet ink.

ACSI Bulk Inks also supplies bulk ink and bulk toner for refilling inkjet, laser, and copier cartridges.
