Ink cartridge refills can be so pricey, am I right?!

There can be a bit of a stigma with buying 3rd party cartridges, and I’ll admit, that was on my mind when I considered trying one out. I was concerned the quality would fall short of the more expensive name-brand cartridges recommended for my HP DeskJet printer.

But I thought the potential savings was worth the test, and decided to give a try.

Not familiar with Here’s the scoop!

The company has a rigorous inspection process designed to ensure they are offering high-quality products. They clean each cartridge, check it for leaks or damage, and test it before listing it for sale.

3rd party cartridges can be either remanufactured or compatible ink cartridges. Compatible cartridges are designed to fit and function in your specific printer, while remanufactured cartridges are genuine brand cartridges that, after use, are put through a rigorous refurbishing process by a remanufacturing facility.

Both options offer a more affordable alternative to brand-name ink as they eliminate the overhead costs.

LD manufactured ink cartridges from versus standard HP printer ink

And after putting the cartridges to the test myself, I can honestly say I’m so glad I made the switch! Why pay high prices for brand name ink when you can get it for less and the quality is just as good – if not better – with the more affordable LD-brand cartridges,

To show you how compatible cartridges stack up to HP printer ink, I tested both sets of cartridges on our free Summer Bucket List printable. The color saturation was much better with LD ink, and the black printed a cleaner and crisper-looking text. 😍 Just check it out above!

That said, the first batch of black ink I received did not work. However, the LD Products customer service team was so awesome and easy to work with! They let me know there is a very small chance of defective cartridges, and they shipped out a replacement set for me ASAP! It was truly hassle-free.

In fact, they stand behind their products so much that they have a 100% Lifetime Satisfaction Guarantee! 🙌

As a mom, Hip2Save’s Jenna is grateful for LD ink cartridge refills:

“If you have children, you know that somebody always needs to have something printed for school. At my house, my kids print out their research, essays, project requirements, worksheets, permission slips, and everything else under the sun!

Using affordable remanufactured ink has totally changed the way we approach printing in our family. I used to guard the printer very carefully, and my kids knew that they had to ask permission to print anything.

We print out a lot of school-related papers, so I rarely said yes to printing any of the “extras” like coloring pages, Perler Bead patterns, pictures the kids took on their iPad, and other non-essential printables. And I almost never approved anything to be printed in color, unless it was required for school.

Finding affordable refills has allowed us to print everything we need for school (and some of the fun stuff too!) without worrying about the cost of replacing the ink. 🙌

My Hip2Save teammate, Lina, loves using LD ink cartridge refills too:

Now that I’ve found affordable ink, I am printing up a storm! Installing the cartridges was the same process as I am used to, and the quality of printing is top-notch. I am seriously so impressed with how well my LD printer cartridges are performing. I used to shy away from printing in color because of the added expense of ink, and now I am not worried as much!

I honestly used to assume using anything other than name-brand ink would mean a much lower quality result in printing, and I am so glad that is wrong. My new affordable ink cartridge refills are awesome and make so much more sense to use, especially with prices increasing almost everywhere nowadays.

We have some great free seasonal gift tags, bucket lists, artwork, household lists, and more on Hip2Save that are free to print! With affordable ink refills, I know I’m much more likely to print these freebies, and I hope you will too!

    I have used LD and other off-brand ink cartridges in a few different printers over many years (10+). Like others have said, many manufacturers now have chips in the cartridge and they will not work if not their own brand.
    I know HP and Epson do this.
    Our color printer is a Canon refillable ink tank printer so it would not be affected by this since there is no cartridge. I got rid of my Epson because the refills were too expensive even when on sale.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us, Kellie. Good to know you’ve had a good experience with using this brand of cartridges in previous printers. 🖨💗

    Got a black and color cartridge from this site for only $35! Normally it would be about $60!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SWEET! Thanks for the heads up on the savings you snagged, Madison! 🙌💕

    I have a cannon all in one. I bought these ink packs to try and save some money. Big mistake, it locked my printer with an error code that I could find anything about it so I called the company. Before I even finished to explain my problem and the code being displayed, they asked if I had tried these when I said yes, they said my warranty was voided and I couldn’t unlock my printer. It is now a very expensive paperweight.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Very sorry to hear that the ink cartridges didn’t work well for your printer, A. 💗 Thanks for the honest feedback about your experience.

    Do you know of any printers on sale ? Mine just stopped working

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Lesly! We recently shared this printer deal – and it includes 2 YEARS of Instant Ink as part of the deal! As another option, there’s a few that are on sale currently at Walmart here. 🖨🙌
