No other company sells Quadient ink. Any ink cartridge sold under the Quadient name, and not ordered through Quadient Ink Cartridges & Mailroom Supplies, are counterfeit ink cartridges. These unsanctioned items are often old ink cartridges refilled with poor quality ink and are prone to leak.

By using counterfeit ink, you are taking a chance the ink will ruin your machine. If a third-party ink cartridge bursts in your machine, damaging it, you are not covered for repairs or replacement under your Quadient service agreement. Damage caused by these ink cartridges will lead to costly repairs or even a new machine.

Along with expensive un-insured repairs, other impacts to your machine include:

It may be cheaper to buy a knock-off cartridge, but it will become expensive when the ink damages your machine and you have to pay for repairs, or worse, a new machine.

Fake ink cartridges leak or explode, which creates a mess of the machine and the surrounding area. Costing additional staff hours for cleanup.

Fake ink cartridges do not have Quadient electronics, which results in errors and false messages, often using too much ink creating smudging and streaks

Yes – the ink will print, but it will also lead to reduced display life and increase the potential for poor print quality. These manufacturers may not incorporate solutions and substances into the pigment composition to perform maintenance tasks (such as ink head cleaning).
