Four Factors it is Important to Know About Formax Mint Mailing System Ink Yields

Four Factors it is Important to Know About Formax Mint Mailing System Ink Yields

If you are considering investing in a Formax Mint Mailing system, you likely have a number of questions. One of them might be about the ink yields on this system. The fact of the matter is that the ink yield will depend on a number of factors. Even customers with identical systems will find that their yields vary, for many reasons. Keep reading to learn four of those reasons and then contact Square One Business Machines at (972) 370-3664 if you would like to learn more or get started with your own system.

  1. Every Unit Will Vary
  2. This is important enough to repeat: ink yields vary by customer. Even a customer who has the exact same Formax Mint Mailing system will see different ink yields. Keep this in mind if a competitor or another business claims to get a much higher (or lower) ink yield than you do for your unit.

  3. Volume, Batch Size, and More will Determine Ink Yield
  4. The factors that will directly affect ink yield include the volume of printing you do, how large your batch sizes are, the number of times you process the mail every day, whether or not you do a lot of slogan/text printing, and even environmental conditions. As you can see, conditions are different not just from one person’s usage to another, but from one day to another even with the same user.

  5. The Number of Batches Processed
  6. We find that people are often surprised to learn that the number of batches they do can affect their ink yield. In fact, if you process several batches of mail at different times during the day, then you are going to see a lower ink yield compared to another mailer who meters their outbound mail a single time per day. If you have the option of letting things pile up and then taking care of them all at once, it can have a big impact on your ink costs.

  7. There Are Estimates on Cartridge Yields
  8. While everyone’s usage will be different, there are some estimates that will give you an idea of what to expect. For example, the Mint 110 has a maximum ink yield of 5,400, the Mint 210S’s is 6,050, the Mint 210A’s maximum yield size is 15,850, the Mint 310 is even higher at 26,000, and the Mint 310 Expert is the same at 26,000.
