About us

What do you do?

Quite simply we sell laser toner refill kits and toner cartridges.

Our mission is simple; we sell stuff that makes it cheaper and more environmentally friendly to print. We do it in an ethical, professional, and friendly manner. We believe in giving excellent service, selection, education, and value to each and every customer.

We try to work with our customers (email is preferred for speed) and we value all feedback especially on the various printers that are out there in the market place. This information helps us to offer a good overview of which laser printers are reliable and which are hopeless! If you are looking to purchase a new laser printer and need advice please first watch our printer video which will guide you in the right direction.

Our history

Zinetic.co.uk was launched from Reading, Berkshire in 2006 when David decided to use his industry knowledge to offer cheap DIY printer refills to the general public. Prior to this he had worked extensively in the printer industry - first for a large toner/chip manufacturer and then the world’s largest remanufactured cartridge producer. His knowledge is invaluable and cannot be matched or bought!

Here’s our timeline

  • 2006 Our first website Zinetic.co.uk is born
  • 2008 We are the very first company to make YouTube video showing the art of toner refilling
  • 2010 We decide to register as a Ltd company
  • 2016 We celebrate 10 years online

In the last 5 years trading Zinetic.co.uk has expanded its product range from offering just DIY refills, to also offer extremely reliable compatible ink and toner cartridges. In addition we are happy to supply laser printers and source maintenance items such as fusers, transfer belts, waste collectors and any spare parts that are needed for the repair of laser printers.

Unlike many online stores we only sell refills, chips and cartridges which have been tested in house by us (or sometimes by a valued customer if we don’t have the printer here) and found to be reliable. If any of our products show technical or quality issues then we will investigate and stop selling them. Simple. By having strict quality control and testing measures in place we are confident that our refill kits, compatible cartridges and reset chips will give you the same performance as original cartridges - but at a fraction of the original price.

Our customers range widely - from home users, small business, schools, the NHS, public listed companies and the wider corporate sector.

Did you know? The printer industry has what is called a returns rate for cartridges. This applies both for original and compatible cartridges. Our compatible cartridge return rate is around 1%. This is very low and is due to our very strict quality control and industry knowledge.

I hope this information has been useful.
