I mentioned earlier that I fill my own Canon Carts, doing this since 2005,the prints I did then have not faded nor discoloured and are as sharp now as the day they were printed.

I buy 5 100ml ink bottles from Ebay Uk the same seller also sell the cartridges, I recommend them,
the seller is....best-bet4us..shop DYGUK Surry uk...Top rated seller...provides a good and fast service

Thank you all for responding so quickly with so much good advice. I'm very interested in PretonSaver, that looks amazing, and I will certainly be checking out the online ink providers you have mentioned. I'm anxious to avoid poor quality products that would muck up the printer and this seemed the best place to ask - so glad it seems I was right

It will have to be online for me as there are no local cheapy shops near me.

hi i dont know if this helps but have you tried printerbase . i buy my hp & epson ink cartridges from them and they are the cheapest i could find . they only do original cartridges and i dont know what their prices are like for canon inks but its worth a look . p + p is free and if you order before a certain time they are delivered the next day .

I'm a bit late in seeing this thread but thought I'd just say that I have a Canon printer and use compatible inks from Internet-ink.co.uk and have always found their service and compatible cartridges good.

Looks like I am a bit late too but I have an Epson and had problems when using compatible inks. The black was okay but when I installed the coloured ones it would not accept them and said I was to install compatible inks. Big boo hoo

oldfinger, I was advised by my supplier to take out all of the cartridges and replace them one at a time. I have had original and compatable inks in the printer at the same time. I have always bought Epson printers and have not had a problem using this method. I do try not to use the originals until after the warrenty period in case of problems.

I have a Canon Pixma 1600, after using the very expensive Canon inks,to buy both colour and black actually costs more than the price of the printer!, and using compatibles from various companies, I actually found out that Asda do their own compatible inks. I wouldn't use any others now, they are a good bit cheaper but also last much longer and I really can't fault the quality of the prints for photos, cardmaking or printing scrap pages.
