University of Nevada-Reno Goes Green With Printer Ink Refills From Ink-O-Dem®

Eco-Friendly, Affordable Ink Refills a Perfect Fit for University in Proximity to Beautiful Lake Tahoe

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Sep 12, 2011) - Ink-O-Dem, the leader in integrated inkjet cartridge refilling and testing technology for university and retail environments, today announced it has installed its Cartridge Refilling System at the University of Nevada-Reno to meet an evolving demand for affordable, green, integrated printer cartridge refilling services. Ink-O-Dem's Cartridge Refilling System is designed to provide students, alumni, faculty and campus neighbors access to convenient, eco-friendly, quality printer ink that is half the cost of a new OEM inkjet cartridge. Ink-O-Dem's Cartridge Refilling System can refill 146 different inkjet cartridges including the latest cartridges from HP and Canon. Students and faculty can visit to see if their cartridge is listed. Ink-O-Dem ink refills are available elsewhere in Nevada at Louie's Home Center in Fallon, Mesquite Lumber & Supply in Mesquite, and Spring Creek Ace® Hardware in Spring Creek.

"Being a neighbor to Lake Tahoe, we care very much about the environment here at UNV-Reno. But we also care very much about our student family's budgets and are mindful of the fact that everyone is trying to save money on supplies. Having the Ink-O-Dem ink cartridge refills here at our bookstore helps us to achieve both of those goals, and we couldn't be more pleased," said Kurt Adams of the UNV-R bookstore.

"Our program is a big win for bookstores, students and the environment! We're especially excited to bring this service to UNV-Reno as this marks the first university in the state of Nevada to benefit from printer ink refills," said Harry Nicodem, CEO of Ink-O-Dem.
