Joel Rumrill was making his merry way home one evening when his wife phoned him in desperate need of a printer ink cartridge so that the couple's son could finish his homework properly.

According to, Mr Rumrill was forced to buy a brand new printer ink cartridge for $43 (£27), a price he was surprised at, since he has always bought such supplies online.

"I stopped by a local national retail chain store and paid $43 dollars for one colour ink cartridge. I was shocked at the price, but I had to have it now. I've been buying my ink cartridges on-line for several years getting great quality products at half the cost compared to retail," he said.

The event proved to be inspirational for Mr Rumrill. He had been thinking that fundraising events organised by children in his local area were for a worthy cause but often sold pointless things like "1 pound candy bars" and "tubs of over-priced cookie dough". Why not sell functional items people will find useful?

Thus the business was born, selling household products, like printer ink cartridges, and helping youth organisations with fundraising efforts too.

Why not take a look at Internet-Ink's affordable printer ink cartridges range?
