A Guide to Ink Film

When it has to absolutely be there right now, nothing beats a fax machine. This tried and true office staple allows us to send vital documents and files anywhere in the world in just a few minutes. Sure email is a bit faster but if you need to fill out a document and send it with your signature to purchase a piece of land for instance, they need your physical signature.

Ink Film makes this possible in the output of sending those documents. The Ink Film is a continuous roll of thermal film that transfers the ink to the paper via a thermal sensor. The thermal output device travels across the back side of the Ink Film causing the ink to leave the roll. This heats the ink and transfers it to the paper, and replicates the original document.

As the wheels of technology keep churning, the prices of plain paper fax machines have dropped dramatically. This gives more people the chance to own this vital piece of office equipment. Even small home run companies are able to purchase one without worrying about breaking their small budgets.

Purchasing replacement Ink Film does not have to be a headache. But choosing the right one has caused more than a few fax machine owners to want to throw it out the window.

There are a few options to consider when it comes to choosing a replacement Ink Film for your fax machine.

First thing you should consider is how available is your model of fax machine. Most local office supply chains only stock the most commonly available manufactures of fax machines and if yours happens to not be one of these then you may be out of luck finding it locally.

Does your manufacturer require using proprietary Ink Film replacements? If this is the case you may be roped into buying their brand of replacement cartridges and this could end up costing you a lot more in the long run of owning that particular model.

Do the replacement rolls of Ink Film come in longer rolls? This is sometimes available depending on your particular brand and model of fax machine.

Is there a discount for purchasing Ink Film in bulk packs? Many replacement film manufacturers have multi packs that may cost you more up front, but the overall cost ends up being cheaper in the long run due to there being multiple rolls of film in the carton. This ends up costing the company less money on packaging multiple rolls versus spending more money having several smaller packages made.

If you are finding it difficult to find replacement rolls locally you can always search online. Many times you can find the online price of office supply chains to be cheaper than local storefronts. This is usually due to freight charges, maintenance of store, employee wages and other market factors.

Online auction sites are another viable source for good deals. Some stores may be liquidating inventory or an office may be selling overstock.
