Well, I don't have a Canon printer but all of my ink and specialist paper comes from Choice Stationery.

Never had any problem whatsoever with any of their products.

I have the Canon i865 and have recently started to buy compatible ink from Choice Stationery and can also recommend them.

Canon i865 and Choice Stationery ink work well together. I have found a slight drop in quality in photos, but that doesn't bother me as I don't make gloss prints very often.

I have a Canon S800 and have used their compatables for several years. Can't fault the price or delivery.

I have a Canon i865 and flirted with compatible inks but found them to spread into the paper (termed ink bleeding - I think) so I went back to Canon's own which I purchase from 7DayShop.

Hi all... I was wondering if someone could clarify what the situation is concerning the use of compatible printer ink cartridges.
Does using these cartridges affect the warranty on the printer? I like a lot of people buy my goods from choice stationers, and they say that using there replacement cartridges does not affect your printer warranty, but if Epson say that using other brand cartridges will affect your warranty, who's telling the truth?.

I meant to start a new thread.

I have been using Genuink for a couple of years in my i865, the colours appear to be as good as the original Canon and I haven't had any pictures fade yet either.

The website is click here although they don't sell direct. Try a Google and you get lots of returns, eg. click here or click here but there are many more...
