Using Google is still the best way to find replacement ink cartridges in Ireland. Searching online brings the best deals and by doing a ‘smart’ search the chances of finding the best deals are increased considerably. The ‘smart’ search involves knowing how to use the search engine most effectively. If you search the term ‘ink cartridges’ then you are likely to bring up all the suppliers of ink cartridges in Ireland and the UK, if you add the word Ireland to the search you will usually reduce the amount of results to those who are located in Ireland only. Try using a ‘long-tail’ search term, i.e. a phrase that incorporates the product you are looking for and also asks a question at the same time. For example, if you require a compatible Canon ink cartridge CLI526 Black, then use a broad search term such as ‘where can I find the cheapest Canon CLI526 Black ink cartridge‘. This will help Google match your results more accurately with your enquiry.
Original brand Canon inkjet cartridges are very expensive and finding good replacement non-original ink can be a difficult task. Many people are put off by horror stories of compatible and refilled cartridges on the market damaging their printer. A good quality compatible or remanufactured ink cartridge will not damage your printer and give perfectly good results for general every day printing.
The only noticeable difference between a compatible and original brand cartridge would be in the printing of a photo quality image. Also, the life of the print may be in question as after a few years the colours in the printed image may not its strength and the quality may seem to deteriorate slightly over tie. Having said all that, for every day use, the compatible ink cartridge is a great way to save money on printing and many businesses and home users have made the switch.
Canon printers are well know for their print quality and many will have a cartridge breakdown of up to six colours; black, cyan, magenta, yellow, light cyan and light magenta. One of the ideas behind this is that it allows you to replace the colours individually as they run out and reduces the cost of having to buy a full set of cartridges. This works fine for those buying original brand Canon cartridges, however, if you buy the compatible ink cartridges online, the deals for a full set of inkjet cartridges will often work out cheaper than buying one or two original brand inks. If you are concerned about the quality of any replacement ink cartridge always contact the supplier before buying and ask what their return policy is or how are you covered if you’re not happy with the ink you have purchased. Some of the more reliable suppliers will offer you a money-back guarantee.
