3rd party inks

Archived from groups: comp.periphs.printers (More info?)

Hello, all.

First off, I want to thank everyone who helped with my decision on
which Canon/Epson printer to purchase for my photo/cd label needs. The
winner was the Canon IP4000. I also bought a cd tray on EBay and
installed it without any problems. Talk about beautiful labels. I just
slap on a gloss label and, VIOLA!!, a professional looking cd.

After seeing a cd I created, a friend has asked me to do 50 cds with
inserts for his own cd. Is there a good third party ink or third party
ink company you can recommend? Or is there a low price dealer for
Canon ink for this printer out there?

THanks

    Before you do that, consider the fact that doing 50 cds with inserts is
    a lot of High Quality printing stress on your new printhead, not to
    mention a lot of wasted paper, ink and time. You should know that Canon
    printheads are of questionable durability and may or may not last your
    50 CD project. You REALLY have to like your friend to be doing this. No
    matter how much I liked anyone I would politely decline and inform them
    to please invest in their own "printing company". If you still insist on
    going ahead, make sure you rest your printer (printhead) between each
    print job.

    That's a load of baloney. I've got 2 PIXMA printers running here, daily,
    cranking out a couple thousand pieces per month. My 3000 is around a year
    old and has printed easily 7500 pieces with no problems whatsoever.
    My 4000 is several months old now and has done nothing but high res discs
    and photos, hundreds of them, also without a single problem.

    Just because one person has a problem with one printer doesn't mean they
    will all have problems. Get a grip. A 50 CD project with inserts is a small
    job for a 4000.

    Will - For some unkown reason, this aftermarket ink question has become a
    hot button issue between the people who report successful use of some
    aftermarket inks and cartridges on this newsgroup and one individual in
    particular (who hasn't used these products) who warns everyone that they
    will clog their printers with them. At the risk of inviting his usual
    response I will answer your question with my own experience. I refill my
    cartridges with MIS ink for my Canon i960 printer, a six color model. I
    have not had a problem in nearly a year of using this product and the color
    match is excellent. Look for posts from Taliesyn and Ron Cohen who use
    Formulabs inks and stevenlee who uses Hobbicolor empty carts and refills
    with their inks. They all report equally successful use of these products.
    Several other participants have indicated that they also use aftermarket
    inks as well. For more information on this issue go to the following sites
    where you can sift through and find lots of useful information - mostly
    about Canon printers, papers, inks, and printer maintenance. Neil Slade
    touts canon printers and refilling. Nifty-stuff forum (where I participate
    as "fotofreek" and sometimes fill in as a moderator) has some very good
    information and also a great deal of experimentation that does result in
    some valuable information. Nifty-stuff forum is a very friendly place for
    novice and skilled users alike and you can sign in and ask any questions you
    would like.

    Beware of printhead clogs. If you must buy aftermarket inks the least
    pain in the ass is a prefilled cart but I doubt very much if you will
    find a vendor that will disclose the mfg/formulator of what they sell.
    They expect you to purchase whatever they choose to put in them.

    The best place to buy Canon ink is Costco.

    THESE SITE ARE INTERESTING BUT THEY ARE SLANTED BECAUSE THEY ARE FILLED
    WITH POSTS FROM THESE SAME CHURCH GOERS. BURT EVEN POSTS THEIR UNDER AN

    If you mean to imply that I make money by telling people of my own
    experience with a product I use to print family pictures with on my home
    printer and computer you are absolutely misleading them. Both of the ink
    products I mentioned are from vendors who have proven their reliability
    with several participants on this NG.

    You have "snipped" out portions of my message to obscure the original intent
    which is to let people know what products have been used successfully by me
    and other participants on this NG. You know very well that the snip
    function is suggested as a matter of NG etiquette to shorten unnecessary
    portions of a posting and not to obscure the poster's intent. Your
    reference to the "church goers" is a snide remark. All of these items you
    have interjected in or used to distort or alter my message are a
    continuation of your harrassment of me on this NG. Please leave my postings
    intact and answer whatever you wish either before or after. Since you feel
    compelled to warn people about clogs, none of which I have experienced with
    MIS inks, do so, but leave my posts and their original intent intact. What
    you are doing is akin to my snipping out "ip4000" and "OEM" from your many
    postings. If you want to give people advice about your printer (a
    commercial product) without being subjected to changes of your message, you
    should give others the same courtesy.

    and your last statement is a lie designed to provoke me. The entire message
    downloads before you have access to respond. BTW, it is appropriate when
    using the snip to enclose it in parentheses to show that it is not part of
    the original post.

    You stated very clearly in a previous message that your intent was to annoy
    me. Paranoia is an imagined attack or provocation. Your statement and your
    actions are clear to all. Just leave me alone and leave my posts intact.

    I don't give a rat's ass about your respect. Just leave my posts intact and
    answer them as you wish. If you really want to save keystrokes you can just
    turn your computer off for a year or two.

    Well, even if it does cark it, as long as it's in warranty period it can be
    fixed. (50 doesn't seem that much to me either though)

    Actually prefilled 3rd party cartridges are the ones to avoid, especially those
    that are too cheap to believe. It has been discussed all the time that they may
    contain diluted ink so that they don't clog but print colors poorly. Or they
    simply contain poor quality inks (to be cheap) that may clog your printhead as
    you said.

    On the other hand bulk refill inks are what I favor. There are only a few companies
    offering bulk inks. They won't stay long if they don't offer good quality inks. If
    they have been around that tells something about their products.

    Do you still have Genuine Canon inks for the Canon IP 4000? Thanks,
