  • Drop-in loading of solid ink sticks is as easy as loading a stapler
  • No toner cartridges to unpack, shake, slide in, pull out and dispose of
  • No mess solid ink sticks are safe and clean to handle
  • Fast speed to first printed color page is as fast as 5 seconds
  • Save storage space because the packages of solid ink sticks are small enough to fit into a desk drawer

Environmentally Preferable

  • Less waste than color laser printers with no cartridges to dispose of and far less packaging to add to landfills
  • Non-toxic ink is safe to handle
  • Recycled paper of any kind can be used with the same high-quality results
  • Fewer CO2 emissions and less fuel is used from shipping because solid ink packages are smaller and lighter than toner cartridges
