Stinkyink Reveals How To Work Out A Printer’s True Page Yield


All printer cartridges, be they ink, toner, ribbons or fax rolls, have their total output measured in 5% coverage pages. Because of the misunderstanding floating around this figure, Stinkyink has chosen to combat it with a user-friendly article detailing what exactly this means. It can be found on Stinkyink’s blog, alongside other articles, including guides to printing, updating drivers for Windows 7, and a multitude of reviews of popular printers.

Through the use of ISO/IEC 19798:2007, the industry standard 5% coverage A4 page, and a specialist piece of software, Stinkyink has developed test sheets for the most commonly used fonts, to help customers and professionals alike understand what they are getting for their money with each cartridge. In addition to simple pages for these fonts, it has tested them all at several different sizes, to see how word count and page coverage relate to one another.

On the back of every HP ink cartridge pack is the disclaimer that “Actual yields vary based on printer used, images printed, and other factors.” Brother make a similar statement on their toner cartridges; “Approx. cartridge yield is declared in accordance with ISO/IEC 19752.”
