HP launched ‘LaserJet’, the first laser printer intended for the consumer mass market in 1984. More than 30 years later, HP toner and inks are regarded as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) leaders in cartridge printing quality, alongside other top global brands, such as Brother, Canon, Epson, Samsung and Toshiba.
Naturally, as a HP GOLD Imaging and Printing Partner, Cartridge World Cyprus stocks the widest range of HP toner and inks on the island, as well as all major OEM brands at our stores in Paphos, Nicosia, Larnaca, Limassol and Paralimni. As an official HP “most trusted and qualified reseller”, HP state that you are guaranteed to receive the “best possible level” of products and service that you would expect from HP themselves.
The good news doesn’t stop there for customers seeking quality, quantity - and affordability! Thanks to industry standards, consumer printing technology has rapidly advanced in the last three decades. During the same period, Cartridge World has continued to improve and refine the quality of its own- brand, compatible toner and ink products.
Today, there is no noticeable difference between a low-cost Cartridge World brand and a OEM brand. The technical specification of the Cartridge World toner or ink you use in your printer is the end result of an exhaustive and rigorous “quality and yield quantity” testing process carried out to the highest regulatory standards of ISO and STMC.
If you check the outside box of your Cartridge World replacement (compatible with OEM) cartridge you will see it is tested to both ISO and STMC approved standards.
ISO stands for The International Organisation for Standardisation - an international standard-setting body, which certifies that a management system, manufacturing process, service or documentation procedure has all the requirements for standardisation and quality assurance. Your cartridge has been tested for yield quantity to TWO important quality standards and certified to a further TWO standards:
ISO Yield Tested ISO 19798 - for colour printers and multi function devices. ISO 19752 - for monochromatic electrophotographic and multi function devices.
ISO Certified ISO 9001 - for quality management system. ISO 14001 – for environmental management system.
Your cartridge has also been tested to STMC, which stands for the Standardised Test Methods Committee, a global group promoting standardised test methods used to evaluate toner printer cartridge performance for the printer cartridge industry. Their goal is for compatible printer cartridge producers and remanufacturers to become formally certificated for quality as well as value. Different testing methods are adopted to assess particular attributes, such as yield, image and density background.
Cartridge World customers are guaranteed that the own-brand products they purchase have undergone ISO and STMC independent, standardised testing procedures that may not necessarily always be the case elsewhere. The five official stamps of testing approval on a Cartridge World own brand product means even greater benefits for business and home printing. Not only is this a guarantee of equal print quality and page yield to an OEM cartridge, but crucially - as millions of Cartridge World customer already know - at a significant cost saving.
