CAUTION: for those of you who have ever thought about, or are currently refilling your ink cartridges via one of those Do-It-Yourself refill kits, please desist and stop the pain! Similar to the days of changing your own oil, it’s just not worth it, plus you don’t get the retailers money-back guarantee if it doesn’t work. The best solution is to visit any of the North American ink refill centers and let a trained operator do the work while you shop.

With printer manufacturers making ink cartridges more and more sophisticated these days, should you try and do-it-yourself, you will need to ensure that a proper fill and vacuum prime occurs to avoid damaging your printer. This can be very tricky if the internal foam is not properly ‘wetted’. The potential hassle and inevitable ink mess you’ll experience just don’t add up for the marginal cost savings that you may think you’re getting.

This is also true for most compatible cartridges which come from China – the reliability of such cartridges is considered somewhat questionable. Print quality and longevity are generally poor due to the unknown chemical compounds…why put your printer at unnecessary risk?

All of our inks are made in America and have been tested for 100% compatibility with your printer model. They do NOT contain any dangerous volatile organic compounds (…that’s the bad stuff that can be harmful to the environment and your health).

It is recommended to only refill manufacturer’s genuine ink cartridges (versus compatibles or remanufactured cartridges) — look for references to GENUINE or ORIGINAL on ink packaging along with manufacturer’s logo trademark.
