Like a printer, the postage machine needs ink cartridges to work. But how many impressions can be made with a single cartridge and how to choose the cartridges? Here are the answers to these questions.


How many impressions per cartridge?

When looking at a cartridge, it's hard to know how many impressions we can make with the ink it contains. Some cartridges can make 3,000 impressions while others can go up to 20,000 impressions.

The more powerful the machine, the more ink the cartridges contains. It's quite logical. A very small machine that allows you to stamp 25 letters per minute and an intelligent postage meter that allows you to handle large volumes of mail do not have the same need for ink. It is therefore normal for a cartridge of a small postage meter to be smaller than a cartridge of a medium postage meter and to print less with the first one than with the second one.


Which cartridges to buy?

First, it is necessary to check the reference of your postage meter to find out which model of cartridges to buy. Then, you just have to choose between the cartridges of the suppliers (Pitney Bowes, Neopost, Francotyp-Postalia) or compatible cartridges proposed on our website.


What are the benefits of compatible cartridges?

We offer our customers compatible cartridges that comply with Canada Post requirements, whose printing quality is as high as that of cartridges produced by manufacturers and whose prices are half the price. But what are the benefits of compatible cartridges? First, their price is up to two times lower than that of a branded cartridge. In addition to being economical, some compatible cartridges are environmentally friendly because they are recycled brand cartridges.


Postage meter ink cartridge prices

Some branded cartridges can cost up to $350 which is relatively expensive. The prices vary according to the size of the postage machine the content of the cartridge and the brand.

By choosing compatible cartridges, your expenses will be less important. Count between $39 and $149 approximately.



Both branded and compatible cartridges have advantages. It's up to you to see what's best for you based on your budget and expectations.
