We offer a full range of consumables for the Xerox 8560 Multifunction printer, including the 8560MFP/AN, 8560MFP/AD, 8560MFP/AT and 8560MFP/AX models.
Rather than toner cartridges, this machine takes solid ink cubes – and these are available as a 3 pack with a 3,400 page yield (colour) and 3 or 6 pack (black) with a 3,400 or 6,800 page yield respectively. Additionally you can purchase the necessary ink in a multipack for convenience and cost savings – with the possibility of extending your printer warranty at the same time.
Solid ink vs toner cartridges
Solid ink is hugely different in appearance to the toner cartridges you might be used to. Toner comes in a plastic container that has to be recycled – otherwise it ends up on landfill and can take up to 450 years to break down. Ink blocks, by contrast, are just solid ink with minimal packaging - so your business generates substantially less waste. The brightly coloured cubes look similar to a child’s building block with their different holes and notches, and they simply drop into a compartment in your printer with ease. Most solid ink printers allow you to load in more than one block so you can print for longer without stopping to refill.
Xerox ink vs cheap imitations
Businesses looking to save money on their printing supplies might consider purchasing non-branded solid ink compatibles. While these do come in cheaper than the branded supplies, the cost savings are only short term. The lower quality of these cheap knock-offs can result in substantial damage to your printer, requiring a service visit and sometimes a new machine.
You should also avoid buying ‘Xerox’ supplies from non-reputable online marketplace sellers. Bidding and marketplace sites cannot and do not adequately vet every one of the millions of sellers using their websites to market printer consumables. Consequently it is easy to buy two types of product with potentially disastrous consequences: all-out counterfeits that are marketed as being genuine Xerox but are completely fake, and genuine Xerox supplies that were meant for a different region. Both have the potential to damage your printer and will typically stop it working while displaying an error code requiring a service visit. Always buy supplies for your Xerox 8560 Multifunction printer from a genuine, reputable dealer and avoid marketplace sellers that don’t also trade on an established, accountable website.
