cartridges to save customers time and hassle. Owners Gary and Julie Campbell opened
Ink Again in the Nov. of 2005 in the Liberty Station shopping center. Since, the store
has been relocated behind Harper’s Kitchens.

Ink Again refills used ink jet and laser toner cartridges. They also fill other types
of cartridges for cash registers. Ink Again guarantees all cartridges 100 percent and
