It used to cost me about $130 to buy all the ink I need to do photo printing on my Canon ink jet printer. I print a lot of thumbnail guides for clients of what is on their discs and these are large files and high quality images. So to say the least my printer was going bananas on ink consumption. Now I pay a fraction of the price (less than half).
Here's a photo essay on the ink I purchase and how easy it is to refill. Even a moron that doesn't listen to her dad for years can do it! (that one's for you Cheese)
