Printing is Expensive, But Your Replacement Cartridges Don't Have to Be: Presented by Office Depot

Switch to Office Depot’s high-quality remanufactured cartridges

Looking for a way to make your office supply budget stretch farther? Office Depot’s large assortment of ink and toner supplies offer an easy and risk free way to cut costs, without sacrificing quality. With solutions for laser and inkjet printers, multifunction machines, fax machines, copiers and postage meter supplies, the Office Depot brand replacement toner and inkjet cartridges can save you up to 30% off the price of the equivalent national brand cartridges.

Perform as well as OEM cartridges

Third-party tests by Buyers Laboratory (BLI), a leading global independent office equipment test lab and business consumer advocate, evaluated the page yield, image quality, and reliability performance of CIG toner cartridges and compared it to the performance of original HP cartridges.

  • Average continuous yields EXCEEDED THE STATED YIELDS across all cartridge types
  • ZERO out-of-box failures
  • ALL cartridges performed to their full life cycle
  • ZERO unusable pages
  • Densities highly comparable to the OEM

Every aspect of Office Depot brand cartridges, from quality and reliability to design and environmental impact, is thoroughly analyzed on an ongoing basis to deliver optimum results with each and every page. Beyond traditional refilling and remanufacturing, these cartridges are built in state of the art facilities equipped with next generation technology, robotics and full-scale process automation equipment. The result is a higher quality, more consistent product you can rely on for all your printing needs.

Office Depot brand replacement cartridges will not void the original equipment manufacturer’s warranty or service agreement.

Environmentally responsible

By purchasing remanufactured cartridges, you are making an environmentally superior choice. How? Office Depot brand remanufactured imaging supplies reduce landfill waste and pollution. It is estimated that in the United States alone, over 350 million laser and ink printer cartridges are landfilled or incinerated each year (see footnote 1). Each discarded laser cartridge adds approximately 2 pounds of metal and plastic waste to our landfills - waste that will take as long as 1,000 years to decompose. (see footnotes 2, 3)

Key benefits

  • Save up to 30% over the national brands
  • Guaranteed to meet or exceed national brand page yield
  • 2-Year performance guaranteed warranty
  • 100% post tested
  • Environmentally friendly printing solution

  • Representative Kirk Schuring Receives Small Business Advocate of the Year Award

    The Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) and its small business division, the Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE), selected Ohio Representative Kirk Schuring of Canton as a recipient of the 2016 Small Business Advocate of the Year Award.

    Representative Schuring co-chaired a joint committee last year that focused on the state’s unemployment compensation system leading up to a related initiative that allowed the state to pay federal debt a year ahead of schedule, saving Ohio job creators millions of dollars in 2017. In addition, and in large part due to Rep. Schuring’s leadership, an actuary will analyze various long-term unemployment compensation fund proposals to help determine a path forward to achieve long-term solvency.

    COSE/GCP Board member Kevin Johnson lauded the Representative’s actions.

    “We support the work Representative Schuring and his colleagues led in providing short-term relief for the business community, while striving to lay the groundwork to achieve a path toward solvency for Ohio’s unemployment compensation system in the future,” Johnson said. “Thanks to Representative Schuring’s leadership, the conversation continues on how to restructure the unemployment system responsibly and for it to be viable in future generations.”

    The award was presented during the annual COSE Day at the Capitol event on April 5.

    Representative Schuring said he was appreciative of the recognition from COSE/GCP.

    “It’s an honor to receive this recognition from the Greater Cleveland Partnership and the Council of Smaller Enterprises,” Rep. Schuring said. “COSE/GCP has had a long-standing tradition of fostering economic development and supporting small businesses. It’s been a pleasure to partner with them on important legislative issues in the past and I look forward to doing so again in the future.”

  • Rock Hall, KeyBank Announce Free Admission for Clevelanders

    The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and KeyBank has announced details about the Rock Hall’s $10-million historic gift from the KeyBank Foundation, revealing a new “CLE VIP” program with free admission to the Museum for Clevelanders. City of Cleveland residents can now receive free walk-up admission. 

    Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson joined Greg Harris, Rock Hall CEO, Beth Mooney, KeyCorp chairman and CEO and former GCP board chair and current board member, and Chris Connor, Rock Hall board chairman were on hand for the special announcement prior to a ribbon-cutting and performance by Montage, 2018 Tri-C High School Rock Off Winners. 

    The Rock Hall’s recent $10-million grant from the KeyBank Foundation is the largest philanthropic commitment in the museum’s history. The contribution supports the CLE VIP program and includes naming of the Hall of Fame gallery, which recently underwent a major renovation and was dedicated during this year’s Induction Celebrations. 

    The Rock Hall generated $2 billion for the Northeast Ohio region since opening in 1995. In 2017, the Rock Hall made a $199-million economic impact on northeast Ohio and generated 1,800 jobs. More than 300,000 local school children have participated in the Rock Hall’s education programs and 5,000 plus Head Start students have participated in Toddler Rock music therapy programs. The Rock Hall has welcomed nearly 12 million guests to Cleveland since opening and over $10 million in ticket tax revenue has gone directly to Cleveland schools. 

    Residents of Cleveland must show proof of residency such as a driver’s license or state ID at the Rock Hall box office to redeem a CLE VIP ticket and a voucher for one free fountain drink. Children under 18 residing in Cleveland may gain entrance with their guardians.

    When it comes to marketing, sharing content is the key to success. Google is always scouring the Internet for current and relevant content, and it is more likely to favor the websites and organizations that are providing it by placing them higher in search engine rankings.

    Despite the immense rewards, a lot of people struggle with content sharing. They think that 1.) They can’t write and 2.) No one cares to read about your industry and expertise. Both are untrue.

    Let’s start with the second item. People do not understand the ins and outs of your industry the way you do. And they don’t have time to seek out proper sources and absorb the information they may need when the time comes. So, it’s time for you to get over the idea that everyone knows about your industry and won't be interested in what you have to say. You have the ability to help people make informative decisions by sharing your knowledge and expertise.  And THAT is really valuable.

    So, when it comes time to write, consider two things.

    1. What do you know that they don’t?

    When you think about your industry, take a moment and write down 3-5 topics that you can write intelligently about. A great place to start is by considering the questions your clients ask you. Their questions and your answers are great topics for you to write about. It’s helpful information.

    2. Who do you follow in your industry?

    The other experts and gurus in your industry are likely sharing information that could be of value to your contacts, too. Your fellow industry experts would likely love to have you share their articles with your audience, and they can give you some additional credibility. 

    Getting Started

    Now let’s spend some time on the notion that you can’t write. Sure you can!  However, if you don’t enjoy writing or have the time for it, you can create a video. Video is huge these days. And the best videos are short – only 1 to 1.5 minutes. Even a 30 second video can be good. 

    After you have determined the topics you can write about, pick a couple, get in front of a camera and shoot a video. You can do this easily on your phone. It doesn’t have to be studio quality – it just has to convey a valuable message. If you don’t want your face in front of the camera, narrate a Powerpoint or record an audio file to share.

    In addition, there are plenty of freelance writers out there who are happy to learn about your industry and help you get your message out there. There are no barriers to entry once you decide to share your wealth of expertise.

    Remember, once sharing interesting content related to your industry becomes a part of your marketing strategy, you must distribute it through your available channels and be consistent. You don’t need to create something brand new every day, but you should carve out time each week to create the list of items you could write, speak and present about as well as time to work on them. There’s no time like the present, so if you aren’t doing this already – get started!
