About Us

p>At Cartridge Depot we want to make ink cartridge recycling easy and profitable for your customers and our franchisees. As the recycling industry grows the market for refilled ink cartridges grows with it, now is the time to become part of this profitable franchise. Cartridge Depot is dedicated to providing customers with quality remanufactured ink and toner cartridges

Our goal at Cartridge Depot is to make remanufactured cartridges the business standard. We are accomplishing this through outstanding franchises using our exclusive Ink 3000 cartridge machine and its groundbreaking refill technology. Cartridge Depot's technology is certified by the ISO 9001, the universal gold standard of quality, and is currently used at over 5,000 retail distribution points around the world. We are the exclusive distributor of this technology in North America giving our franchisees a serious competitive advantage.

Products and Services

Cartridge Depot provides products that meet and/or exceed OEM specifications, unlike drill-and-fill or injection refilling stations. Our franchises use our exclusive InkMax 3000 refill technology and each cartridge is completely clean, restored, and inspected before it's refilled. Every time you help your customers recycle their cartridges, you make a difference to the health of our planet and to your bottom line. Take a look:

  • Laser printer cartridges can take up to 450 years to decompose in a landfill; components made from industrial grade plastics may take as long as 1000 years.
  • One laser printer cartridge requires almost one gallon of oil to produce.
  • Every year in the US, over 300 million cartridges are thrown away.
  • More than one billion laser and inkjet cartridges are shipped throughout the world each year.
  • 70% of users throw away empty laser and inkjet cartridges.
  • Every cartridge puts approximately 2.5 pounds of plastic into a landfill.
  • Remanufacturing toner cartridges can save over eleven million (11,000,000) gallons of oil per year.
  • Refilled cartridges cost up to 50% less than new ones, but provide the same print quality.
  • Cartridge Depot's boxes are made in part with recycled post-consumer waste to further reduce environmental impact.

Testimonials

“I always wanted to own a business and this one is really interesting. You can start slowly and build up the business.”

“Our products and our customers speak for themselves. It’s a profitable business...everybody needs cartridges you just have to convince them to try it. It's a large quantity sale, so it's a significant sale each time.” — Jeremy Ross, Owner, Boca Raton and Maryland Franchises

“If you want to open your own business this is a great industry to get into — it’s a booming industry. You’ve got good profit margins and with Cartridge Depot they are always there to help you if you need them.

The main attraction for me was the low cost to get into it — there are so many different franchises and Cartridge Depot was one of the lowest costs to start. You can open probably two to three Cartridge Depot stores for the cost of one the other franchises. And the growth is great. We were profitable pretty much from the start of the second month.” — Matt Lucas, Co-Owner, Owensboro Franchise

“Cartridge Depot lived up to their promises. They are easy to deal with and did everything they said they’d do. That matters.”

“They guaranteed me a territory and they’re growing. I wanted to be with a company that’s growing.”

“It was very easy to get started, there were no problems and no surprises. Business has certainly met all my expectations and every month we do more and more. There’s a need for this, everybody prints and everybody orders from the Big Boxes that charge and arm and a leg and I can provide an equal product for a lower price.” — Paul Buffa, Owner, Athens Franchise
