5. If I buy a cartridge from you will it void the warranty on my printer?

Major printer manufacturers sell printers at low or no profit cost. They make their profits from selling the cartridges. Previously, you had no choice but to buy one of their cartridges after yours ran dry. Now you can cut into their primary source of profit by using compatible cartridges. To protect their own interests, they will threaten to void your printer warranty if you use compatible cartridges. However, it is strictly illegal for them to do so. They can not void your warranty simply for using different manufacturer's cartridges.

We have sold thousands of compatible cartridges and never had an incident where a customer's warranty was "voided" from using our products.
