How This Could Save You Money

Canon isn't the only brand that makes ink and toner compatible with it's printers. These other brands are often referred to as third-party, compatible or remanufactured. Big brand names like Canon have always used scare tactics to keep consumers from purchasing from third-party suppliers claiming the chips won't work. This has mostly kept compatible ink and toner a secret for only the tech savvy but this chip shortage has revealed that the chips can be safely bypassed allowing consumers and businesses to save money by purchasing elsewhere. 

Compatible ink and toner purchased through reputable companies like Supplies Outlet offers the same great quality as name brand at a fraction of the price. Shop Canon compatible ink and toner here on the Supplies Outlet website.
