Local laser toner suppliers have their work cut out for them. They compete against some of the biggest chains in the world -including Walmart, Amazon, and Office Depot- using a fraction of those chains’ budget and marketing resources. Sometimes, it’s hard to imagine how local toner suppliers even stay in business!
Of course, we know how local toner suppliers stay in business – because we are one. While big box chains can outspend and outmarket your local supplier, your local supplier likely sells better toner at lower prices, alongside personalized services that big box sellers don’t offer.
If you found this article, you’re likely looking for a local toner supplier in your area. We really hope you find one! Because when you buy from your local toner supplier, you’re not only supporting a small business, you’re also getting a better deal.
Local Laser Toner Competes with Big Box Prices
You’d think that big box stores would be able to sell toner more cheaply than local suppliers. But you’d be wrong! In our research, we’ve found that our toner (sold from Fresno, CA) is consistently cheaper than the toner you’ll find at big box stores.
For example, let’s take a look at toner for the HP 80A LaserJet Pro, one of our more popular cartridges. At all four of the chain or online stores linked below, this toner costs $115(!):
If you look on our website, you’ll find this same toner for $65, a discounted price that we can afford because a) we sell remanufactured toner, and b) selling toner is all we do. It’s likely that your local toner supplier can offer you the same sort of deal, and do so while also offering personalized services.
Local Laser Toner Suppliers Offer More Services
Better prices aren’t the only thing that make finding a local toner supplier worthwhile. Your local supplier likely understands the importance of each individual customer they work with (we know we sure do!), and so will offer additional services to make sure you keep buying from them.
We know our own customers have gladly taken advantage of the free printer repair services we offer, and we’re happy to provide free, local delivery to those we serve in Fresno County. Your own local toner supplier likely offers similar services. Be sure to shop around and see what services the suppliers in your area offer!
Local Laser Toner Reduces Your Environmental Footprint
And finally, when you buy from your local toner supplier, you’re helping the environment! Local suppliers like ourselves are more likely to sell remanufactured toner, which re-uses existing laser toner cartridges – keeping them out of landfills. And when you buy local, you mitigate the need to ship more toner across the country from big box distribution warehouses to your business. Local toner suppliers have most varieties of toner on-hand already and can deliver them using their own (more fuel efficient) vehicles.
So there you have it: three reasons you should consider shopping locally next time you’re in the market for laser printer toner. And if you’re in the Fresno, CA area, you can shop with us – we’ve got a 25% off deal for first time buyers at Valley Toner Supply.
