Are there precautions to handling toner cartridges?

Keep toner cartridges level and avoid unnecessarily shaking them to prevent toner spills. If you get toner on your skin or clothes, wash it off with COLD water. Never use hot water as the heat will permanently set the toner.

Of course! Just make sure they are kept sealed in their packages and stored in a cool, dry place, and our replacement toner cartridges will stay in good working condition for at least 18 months.
