Cheaper Printing

Canon MX410

Canon Pixma MX410

New inkjet printers are very affordable, and include scanners and fax machines – but the cost of replacement ink cartridges soon ads up.

Canon Ink Combo

The Canon Pixma MX410 printer shown above normally uses Canon PG510 (Black) and CL511 (Colour) ink cartridges, available in a combo pack for $51.99 at OfficeWorks.

These cartridges contain just 9ml of precious ink, and have a page yield of 200-250 pages (approx), which is why they run out so often.

 

Looking for a cheaper option ?? 

I purchased a Rihac Constant Ink Supply Solution (CISS) for $115 which includes a 100ml refillable ink tank (pre-filled with High Grade UV Dye ink) which allows for countless refills.

Although a little fiddly to install initially, the system is mess free and the tank can be eventually be topped up using 100ml bottles of ink.

The savings speak for themselves.

According to Rihac, this system saves up to 90-95% on your printing costs!  “*Equivalent to approximately 60 standard cartridges. Epson cartridges have approximately 10 mls of usable ink inside. Our CISS allows you to print continuously. Epson cartridges are approximately $23.52 each (officeworks). Our CISS is pre-filled with 100mls of each coloured ink, so in dollar terms that is approximately $1,400.00 worth of cartridges if bought separately.”

The Rihac CISS works with a range of Brother, Canon, Epson & HP printers.  If you are looking for cheaper printing, I recommend using a Rihac Continuous Ink Supply Solution.
