Cartridges contain liquid ink, wich is then fired in extremely small droplets onto paper to create an image. Inkjet cartridges are for use on inkjet printers, MFD's and some fax machines.
Inkjet printer cartridges are available in a variety of colours depending on the type of the printer. Nearly all inkjet printers are able to print in colour and the ink cartridges to fit are usually one Black and either 3 Colour cartridges (combined Cyan, Magenta and Yellow) or three single Colour cartridges, one each of these same colours.
The growth of Photo printing has brought a more sophisticated inkjet printer wich is capable of printing not only normal text but also high quality photos.Photo printers can take up to 8 different colour cartridges, the extra colours such as light versions of the standard colours, allow the printed photos to have a higher degree of colour accuracy and a better quality finish.
Standard capacity ink cartridges typically produce a few hundred pages per cartridge. Inkjet cartridges are sometimes also available in Low or High yield capacities to suit individual users.
