Why Shopping Local Matters


When you have a major order to place, it’s tempting to take the easy route with Amazon or any other major chain stores. It’s convenient, and sometimes the price is right.

But on the other hand, think of the countless incorrect orders and delayed shipments you’ve had to spend time on the phone correcting. You could be spending that time growing your business and supporting your customers and clients!

Keeping your dollars in your hometown will save you money in the long run, and also help boost your local economy. You’ll also experience the fast and friendly customer service that only a small business can provide.

Choosing a small business to get your computer and printer supplies as well as printer maintenance from will benefit you by:

  1. Giving you the opportunity to “know your neighbors” and grow closer community ties
  2. Help local businesses grow a stronger economy – local businesses hire local workers, creating more jobs
  3. Provide A+ customer service – no more big brands putting you on hold for hours only to give you mediocre results at best. Local businesses thrive on building relationships based on fast and friendly customer service and providing great products


Michigan Computer Supplies is family owned and operated and has been providing other small businesses in Ann Arbor with printer ink, toner, and managed print services and repair for over 20 years.

Recycle E-Waste and Go Green at Work!

According to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, “e-waste is the most rapidly growing segment of the municipal solid waste stream.” (1)  Recycling your e-waste benefits the environment in several ways:

  • Conserve natural resources.  Electronics contain many materials that can be reused, refurbished, and recycled, such as those found in toner cartridges.  The manufacturing process consumes energy to produce new products, which, depending on the process, may contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and water pollution.

  • Proper disposal of toxic chemicals. E-waste may contain high concentrations of chemicals and metals, including mercury, lead, and cadmium.  Proper recycling and disposal keeps these toxins out of our soil and water and protects the food we eat and the water we drink.

  • Protect and support your community. Reduce the amount of e-waste that’s incinerated and placed in landfills. Both of these processes may have a negative impact on our air, land, and water quality. Recycling can be a win/win for your community!

Recycling e-waste is one of the simplest ways to reduce your environmental footprint.  Are you ready to take that step? The time is now!

There are several ways you can increase the green printing solutions in your office. Visit our website to learn more!

At Michigan Computer Supplies, we love to support our fellow small businesses in Ann Arbor. We can help you come up with more efficient printing processes, and help streamline your practices with delivery and regularly scheduled printer maintenance.

Increase "Green" Printing Solutions in Your Office

If you’re like most businesses, you generate e-waste on a regular basis. Perhaps you’ve been storing your e-waste until you find a suitable, inexpensive source for disposal. One day you’ll find that you need space and your recyclable materials end up in a landfill.  “Next time,” you say, “we’ll recycle.”

Now’s the Time!


Wouldn’t it be great to have someone pick up your e-waste for FREE? You could reduce your environmental footprint and save money! Recycling your toner cartridges, obsolete computers, monitors, printers, and other office equipment makes a positive impact the environment.

Besides in-office recycling programs, or switching from paper and plastic to reusable materials, you can also go green with the way you print!

Essential PPE During COVID-19

As Michigan gets back to work, you're probably wondering how you can stay safe at your office as an employee, or for CEOs and managers, wondering how to keep your customers, clients, and employees healthy.

Developing a back-to-work plan is essential, and so is having the correct personal protective equipment.

The key feature of the coronavirus is respiratory symptoms, such as dry coughing. It primarily spreads through saliva droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. That being said, the most essential personal protective equipment items to have on hand in the office are:
  • Face masks
  • Gloves
  • Hand Sanitizer
Face masks protect healthy individuals by preventing them from breathing in saliva droplets of an infected person. The average worker should wear a cloth face mask and practice social distancing in the office.

Hand sanitizer is likely something you already have in your office. Quicker and more convenient than washing hands, the high alcohol content can kill some viruses until you’re able to wash thoroughly with soap and water.

Michigan Computer Supplies Can Help Provide Essential Personal Protective Equipment for Your Business!

The Importance of PPE in the Workplace

You’ve likely heard a lot about personal protective equipment (or PPE) over the last few months as COVID-19 has spread across the country.

PPE protects its user against many forms of physical harm or hazards in the workplace. Industries like manufacturing and mining have been using PPE as preventative measures to keep employees safe, and now PPE like hand sanitizer, masks, gloves, and face shields are becoming commonplace.

You know that PPE can make the difference between someone spreading COVID-19 and staying safe, but do you know how to implement PPE in your office building? If you’re not a business that usually keeps these items on hand, it can be hard to know what to buy, and how much.

  1. Nearly 8 cartridges are thrown away per second in the United States alone.
  2. It takes one gallon of oil to make a mew laser cartridge.
  3. About 70 percent of used printer cartridges are being thrown away instead of recycled.
  4. A laser cartridge in landfill can take up to 450 (!) years to decompose, but some components can take over 1,000 years!

Are you trying to improve the efficiency and functionality of your business using thermal barcode labels?

Do you have quarterly inventory to complete, or new products to get on the shelves for customers?

Choosing the right type of barcode for your business depends on what you’re labeling, how long you need it to be readable, how the label will be applied, and the environment where it will be used.


Barcode scanning tremendously increases the accuracy of data collection since it removes the possibility of human error associated with data entry.  Cost savings are realized as a result of less time spent entering data and more time running your business.  Most business owners would prefer to see their employees spending their time serving customers rather than researching data entry errors.
