About Us

On October 7, 2002, thanks to the foresight and vision of Tim Arnold and Bill Weatherbie, the concept of Discount Toner & Ink – Independence was born.  Bill’s first exposure to the toner and ink industry began in his basement, where he re-filled toner cartridges, while Tim operated a re-filling operation in Kansas, to meet the needs of customers in that area.  As their businesses grew, Bill and Tim joined forces.   After a period of time the two partnered in the opening of the Discount Toner & Ink – Independence, MO store, which remained in its’ original location, until 2015.  Bill left re-filling to manage the store, while Tim continued to re-fill cartridges and expand the business.  Additionally toner and ink cartridges were purchased from other local suppliers.

As time passed and demand grew, technology was developed by the bigger companies, whereby cartridges were now being filled faster and more precisely, on automated equipment.  As this transformation took place, the smaller suppliers were gradually replaced by larger, high tech suppliers throughout the United States.  Today, re-manufactured toner and ink cartridges come from all parts of the world, as do the OEM cartridges.

Following a successful career in manufacturing management, Don Mueller, originally from Wisconsin, decided to remain in Missouri to begin his next career – that of retailer.  Accordingly, he purchased Discount Toner & Ink – Independence on July 1, 2011.  Initially, while Don was learning the Ink and Toner Business, the product offering remain essentially the same.  After a short period of time, it became glowingly obvious that customer demand was for more than just Ink and Toner, but also for Office Products and other goods as well, and the product offering began to grow. 

In addition to offering a comprehensive assortment of re-manufactured Toners and Inks, Discount Toner & Ink became the people’s source for a variety of Office Products, Computer supplies, and reconditioned printers.

With still more floor space available, Greeting Cards were introduced, as well as a small selection of Gift Items.

Finally, outgrowing floor space, and wanting to take advantage of the ever growing and expanding Independence Square, Don moved the business to its’ current location, at 112 N. Liberty Street, and changed the name to Smiles on the Square, on November 1, 2015.

Working with our customers and the Independence Square Association, we continue to offer the same selection of Inks, Toners, and Office Supplies, while also offering ever broadening changing lines of Greeting Cards, Candles, and Other Gift Items.
