Read the definitions below to understand the types of cartridges we carry.



OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) or Brand Name - A "brand name" inkjet or toner cartridge is just that - it's a printer cartridge that carries the brand name of the manufacturer on it, usually the same as the printer manufacturer, for example, Epson, Canon, Hewlett Packard, etc. We currently offer OEM cartridges for select printer models of: Epson, HP, Lexmark.

Compatible - A compatible or "generic" inkjet or toner cartridge is manufactured by a company other than the original printer manufacturer. They are generic inkjet cartridges which are manufactured to replace the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) cartridges. They are brand new, built with only newly made componentsfor a reliable replacement of the originals. Compatible cartridges are an economical alternative to expensive brand name ink on the market are paying for the cartridge, not the name brand. We currently offer compatible cartridges for select printer models of: Epson, Canon, HP, Lexmark, Xerox, Brother.

Remanufactured - Remanufactured ink cartridges are also a sensible alternative to brand name ink cartridge replacement. They are recycled inkjet cartridges that have been disassembled, inspected, cleaned, reassembled, and finally refilled with new ink. They undergo stringent testing - in the end, they are an excellent alternative because they are built to meet or exceed original specifications. Remanufactured cartridges are also synonymous with "recycled" cartridges. We currently offer Remanufactured cartridges for select printer models of: HP, Dell, Lexmark.

Valu-Paks - Valu-Paks are our own sets of multiple ink cartridges for a given printer model. These packs are popular combinations of 2 or more cartridges for consumers who are looking to purchase more than just a single cartridge. We have also priced these packs at a discount - therefore you will always save more money by purchasing a Valu-Pak over buying the cartridges individually, in some cases up to 40%! See our Valu-Paks for your printer and save.

Ink Island sells OEM, compatible and remanufactured cartridges. All are fully guaranteed (see our guarantee policy) and priced to be the best value in the market. For more information or questions, please feel free to contact us.
