All About Canon Printer Ink Cartridges

Bring your photos to life with Canon ink cartridges. Designed to provide vibrant color and deep blacks, Canon ink technology is as important to the print process as the printers themselves. eBay offers a wide variety of new and preowned Canon printer ink cartridges so that you can find one that's compatible with your printer.

How do you know which ink to use?

Here are some pointers on choosing between Canon ink cartridges:

  • Step 1 - Check your printer's manual if it is available. The ink type should be listed in the product instructions, and there should be a section about available accessories for the product.
  • Step 2 - If no manual is available, inspect the front, sides, and back of the printer. The type of ink required is sometimes displayed on a sticker attached to the device.
  • Step 3 - If you are still unable to find the type of ink needed, gently lift the front cover of the printer to expose the cartridges themselves. The ink cartridge currently in use will be labeled. You may need to gently pull the cartridge out in order to see the label.
What is a Canon CL ink cartridge?

Canon CL ink cartridges have been developed for use with their PIXMA line of printers with the goal of enhancing photo quality and print life. In addition to long-lasting prints, photos printed using Canon CL ink cartridges provide a larger color palette for PIXMA printers to utilize, in addition to a number of accessories. Brighter red hues make for more detailed and subtle color transitions, further enhancing photo quality and clarity and utilizing optimal toner.

Made for professional photographers who want the finest details, these inks offer a wider and more dynamic range not just for color but for blacks and grays as well. The CL cartridge lines' dynamic black inks enable PIXMA printers to provide images with realistic depth and character.

Offered in XL cartridges and sold as individual cartridges for each color, PG series products are designed to waste little to no ink in the printing process. Refill cartridges are also available on eBay.

PG series inks are pigment-based, resulting in long-lasting photo and text prints. These inks are both smudge-proof and highlighter-resistant, so you won't have to worry about ruining documents fresh off the printer when highlighting details for your next meeting or presentation.
