The price of printer ink has been climbing steadily for many years and is now a real cause for concern for consumers and businesses alike. Unfortunately, this trend looks set to continue.
The increasing price of raw materials means there will be price hikes for inks and consumables for the foreseeable future. In addition, ever stricter enforcement of environmental rules in China and India will drive prices up further.
Printer ink is already measurefor-measure more expensive than Champagne, Chanel No.5 perfume and even crude oil! In the consumer market, it is often cheaper to buy a new printer with ink included than it is to buy a refill for the very same printer!
A key component of franking machines is the printing function and, just like a standard printer, this requires an ink cartridge. Even with conservative use, ink costs can run to hundreds of pounds per year.
In response to year-on-year increases in ink pricing, Frama is proud to introduce the Frama FREE Ink initiative!
Every Frama franking machine lease rental agreement will now be available with a FREE ink option. Our highly skilled team of account managers will assess your current usage and provide a pre determined number of cartridges with each machine.
