A set of replacement cartridges for home printers costs £45, and a bottle of the elite Dom Perignon costs about £109. It doesn’t really seem like much in the first glance, but if you do the math, accounting the costs drop by drop, it becomes clear to us that we’re being ripped off by the ink companies.
