Vendors selling toner cartridges for printers, copiers, and fax machines, have contacted departments through email, fax and telephone in the past.
Please be cautious for the following reasons:
- Normally, vendors of good standing with the University do not call departments to refill orders;
- Some companies charge hundreds of dollars for a $30 toner cartridge, plus shipping and handling;
- If you unknowingly order toners, and we sign for delivery, we are obligated to pay the invoice unless items are returned within 3 -15 days. These companies always have proof of delivery.
- Re-stocking fees of 15% are charged after 3 days.
Helpful guidelines to follow:
- The cost of toner and supplies are included in the monthly billing if you have a copier maintained by Printing Services.
- If you maintain your own copier and order supplies, they should be purchased through Guy Brown Products/OfficeMax, IUC agreement or an authorized service company, i.e., Donnellon McCarthy, IKON, and Xerox. Printer toner can be purchased through Guy Brown Products/OfficeMax or the Inter-University Contract price agreement (www.iucpg.com). Be sure to compare pricing on each item.
