It is important to consider the cost of ink cartridges when buying a printer, it has been advised.

The opinion is that of Smart Money magazine contributor Anne Kadet, who discussed the economics of purchasing a new model.

She said depending on what system is chosen, ink cartridge prices can add up, highlighting Kodak's efforts to market "fairly-priced" printers with some of the lowest price-per-page costs in the industry.

However, buying online can save money. And making sure you recycle ink cartridges means they will be disposed of carefully.

Earlier this month, the PrintCountry blog discussed more ways to make printer ink reign in spending.

It advised consumers never to stop a document while it is still coming out of the printer as it can make ink leak from the nozzle, which may dry up.

Shaking an ink cartridge gently from side to side was also recommended to get the last drops out before a replacement is required.
