For personal use, a printer needs good care to function properly as you do not take printouts quite often. For your business, the printer demands even more care as it runs constantly.

The powder particles are electrically charged to produce the images and the text on the paper. In case of colour laser printer toner, the toners are available in four CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) colours. For your printer, whatever be the make and model, the toner cartridge is a replaceable part and you should know how to buy the best that suits for your computer.
