Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.

  • Canon PGI220 & CLI221 Compatible Ink Set of 12

    Q:

    What is the difference between the pigment black and regular black? I am using a Canon MP560.
    Asked on 1/10/2015 by KVpastor from Kirksvile, MO

    1 answer

    • A:

      Great question! The PGI220BK is the pigment black and the CLI221BK is the dye black. Dye based cartridges are used for more vibrant photos, or when printing on glossy paper. The pigment black is used for your daily text printing needs. The difference is really in the particles of the ink!

    Q:

    Photo Quality

    Your prices are excellent! And your reviews are great too, if I was using my printer just for paper, I wouldn't think twice about buying your product!! However, I use my printer exclusively for photos, so I need a good quality ink. Is your ink equal in photo quality to Canon's ink? How fast do the colors fade compared to Canon ink?

    • A:

      Thank you for contacting us Roberta! We use ink that lives up to the specifications of Canon ink. Our ink quality for printing on paper and photo paper is excellent! Also, if you purchase from us and do not feel completely happy with your print outs we can also take back the product within our 1 year warranty. When you purchase from us you can do so with confidence!

      I used LD's ink in my canon and after a year it wrecked my machine. I called Canon to see if they could help me (without having to admit that I was using cheaper ink) and then when I finally had to admit it, they said that that's what normally happens when their ink isn't used. They make thicker ink for their copiers.

  • Compatible CLI221 Cyan Ink for Canon

    Q:

    I have a cannon MX880 but the closest I can find on your list is the cannon MX882.

    Will you please let me know which ink cartridges I can order that will work in my cannon MX880? Thank you, Audrey Norman
    Asked on 9/3/2014 by Audrey from Mountlake Terrace, WA, USA

    • A:

      Hello Audrey! The MX880 is typically just a series number. If you look on the front of the printer does it reflect the MX882? If it does then you can use the below link to order the cartridges you need.

I had repeated incidents where the printer failed to print. I tried repeated cleaning, deep cleaning, and testing and finally received a good print product. This process was necessary each time I tried to print. Finally, I replaced the large black ink tank with another LD large black tank. The replaced tank was nearly, but not quite, empty. At first, the replacement tank performed as expected, but shortly thereafter it began to report being nearly empty, then finally as empty. When examined, it was still about 3/4 full. LD has been reponsive about replacing nonfunctioning ink cartridges, but limits their warranty to one year after purchase. Often my ink use is low so the replacement cartridges remain in inventory for months before needed. Fortunately, a local office supply store sells genuine Cannon print supplies, but at 3X the price of LD. I continue to buy from LD for low price and tolerate the occasional disappointment with product quality, even when sometimes beyond the warranty period.

Comments about Compatible CLI221 Magenta Ink for Canon:

Used for a wide variety of printing jobs in business. Don't trust the ink indicators shown on your computer? Look at the cartridge. I don't know how, but these cartridges use every last drop of ink before they are done. I always have spares so I wait until printer says empty. Generally 40-50 copies after low notice appears. Old cartridges are always absolutely empty. No waste. Think about these replacements after you throw away a manufacturer's replacement tank that shows empty but still has ink sloshing around inside.

Next time you buy paper, reset the print counter and see how many copies you can get, I think you'd be surprised how much more you can get over the manufacturer's replacements, for a lot less $$$$.

Used in everyday printing for business. Cartridges last longer and are a lot less expensive than manufacturer replacements. Shipping is fast and secure. I have no need to go somewhere else for printer supplies. Have yet to find anyone else who can even come close to their prices.
