Moustache®, a brand of ShopperPlus, was created by Jack Zhan in 2003 when he was a McGill University computer science graduate student. He realized that the high cost of printing was a serious issue for students.
In an effort to address the problem, Zhan launched an e-commerce startup to sell high quality yet affordable compatible ink and toner cartridges, something the printing industry was sorely lacking. He was well equipped to do so, having been a programmer for Alibaba.com (the world’s largest online retail platform) before studying at McGill.
Today, Moustache products save customers an average of 75% even though they often outperform the competition.
Moustache specializes in compatible cartridges (cartridges produced by a different manufacturer than your printer’s original cartridges) which work as well as brand name cartridges, but cost considerably less. Moustache is a product line of 123InkCartridges.ca, Canada’s number one source for printer ink cartridges and laser printer toner cartridges. Our business helps consumers save up to 80% on their ink and toner cartridge purchases. Moustache was created to manufacture compatible ink and toner cartridges (which are available for purchase on the 123InkCartridges.ca website) and high quality yet affordable office supplies (like pens, paper and post-it notes).
If you run a business and think saving money on ink and toner cartridges is not important, think again. Printer ink is more expensive than champagne, and offices guzzle it like water. The average employee uses approximately 10,000 sheets of paper a year, costing somewhere between 6 and 13 cents per page. At the low end of that range, the average employee’s printing costs a business $600 per year, and at the high end, $1,300. Despite their great price, Moustache cartridges are high quality. This means businesses that switch to Moustache cartridges would only pay roughly $150 to $325 per employee, per year, without sacrificing quality. Depending on the size of your business, using Moustache products could mean huge savings for your company. For example, if you run a large company with 500 employees, your printing costs could drop from $650,000 to just $162,500 per year. That’s enough money saved annually to hire 10 new mid-level employees!
You may be wondering why the line is named ‘Moustache’. Moustaches have historically been used to add an air of distinction to fictional characters. Agatha Christie gave fictional detective Hercule Poirot a moustache as a symbol of his dignity, intelligence, and punctuality. Jack Zhan dubbed the product line Moustache so that his customers would think of these qualities when they encountered his products. Moustache’s products live up to the name. They are compatible with over 5,000 models from brands like Brother, Canon, Epson, Hewlett Packard (HP), Samsung and Xerox; are certified by multiple industrial standards; and consistently outperform the competition.
