Everything you need to know about a printer cartridge
Print cartridges are basically ink cartridges that contain the ink used by inkjet printers. In simple words, just like how you need food to carry out daily activities, your printer requires ink cartridges in order to print. Most inkjet printers make use of either 2 or 4 cartridges. The two cartridges include the black and tri-color cartridges, whereas the four cartridges include black cyan, magenta, and yellow cartridges. More professional photo printers use up to 6 to 12 cartridges. Ink cartridges can generally hold anywhere between 8 to 127ml of ink. But, regular printers such as Epson or HP contain only a small amount of ink. The ink inside the cartridges can be either dye-based or pigment-based. Although dye-based ink is preferred because it helps to produce vibrant colors. Pigment-based ink, on the other hand, is more suitable if you wish to print archival-quality images since it is known to last about 200 years.
