Here at City Ink Express we strive to offer a complete service to our customers. Our continuous ink supply systems can save you a tremendous amount of money - in some cases up to 80%. If you purchase our printer bundles then we'll do the tricky installation bit for you, ensuring your CISS system is properly fitted to your new system. If you're just going to order your CISS system and install it yourself however, then we want to ensure that we can provide you with any help you might need. 


Naturally we get dozens of enquiries on fitting CISS systems to different printer models every day, and it is nigh on impossible for us to get back to everyone - though we do try our best. To try and combat this problem we decided to create a City Ink Express YouTube Channel and create some fantastic easy-to-follow tutorials on fitting CISS systems to different printers, replacing ink in CISS systems and various other handy things. 


We've built up quite a library of tutorials and we're frequently adding new videos and based on some great feedback and regular sharing from you guys, we're pleased to announce they're going down really well! As long as there's a need, we will do our best to meet those needs by adding videos regularly.

We rely on our feedback to understand what you guys want to see and what you like to see. Chell said that "The quality [of her City Ink Express CISS system] is excellent and, with the photo step by step and the video on YouTube it was so simple, it was so easy to install" and another loyal customer told others "don't worry if you're unfamiliar with CISS, CityInk have provided helpful step-by-step videos for each system, available on Youtube." We're very thankful for your feedback and would love to keep hearing from you.

Canon is a huge name in the printing industry. This Japanese company has been on the scene for more than 75 years, and the brand is synonymous with top-quality printing and photography equipment. Canon printers can be found in homes, schools and offices the world over – no matter what you need a printer for, Canon is a great choice.


Here are some of Canon’s best printers as of February 2014:


Canon PIXMA iP2702

Canon PIXMA iP2702
Brilliance on a Budget 

The iP2702 is one of the most inexpensive colour printers you’re likely to find. Some people have criticised it for its slow print speed and the amount of noise it makes while printing, but for just £14.90 (the price at time of writing), you can’t complain, can you?


Canon PIXMA MG6350

Canon PIXMA MG6350
Everything You Need

This is an all-in-one printer, which means that it can do scans and copies as well as straightforward prints. The quality that you get from the MG6350 is outstanding; it includes a ‘fast’ mode that cuts down on ink usage, and several Amazon reviewers have noted that the print-outs look great even in fast mode. 


Canon PIXMA PRO-100

Canon PIXMA PRO-100
The Best Your Photos Can Get

  Canon printers in general are pretty good for photo printing – after all, the company are arguably even better-known for their cameras than for their printers. Still, if you’re a professional photographer, you’ll want your snaps to look absolutely perfect when you print them off, and that’s where the PRO-100 comes in. It’s Canon’s top photo printer, and while it certainly isn’t cheap, the quality you get is well worth the cost.


Canon i-Sensys LBP7110CW

Canon i-Sensys LBP7110CW
 One for the Office

This big, heavy-duty printer is perfect for a busy office environment. It prints quickly and crisply, and since it's a laser printer (as opposed to the inkjet printers found in Canon's PIXMA range), your documents won't get smudged and you won't have to change the toner cartridge very often!


Remember, if you do buy a Canon printer, you can get Canon toner and Canon ink cartridges right here at CityInk Express!

To many reading this, the question 'what is printer toner' will seem like common sense. In a modern world filled with technology - surely everyone knows what printer toner is, right? Wrong. For many, a printer is a necessity - not a hobby, and all the fiddly bits that are under the hood are as much a mystery as anything! As long as it works, who cares, right? 


But what happens when your printer conks out and you can't for the life of you understand why? Do you shell out for a new one or do you think "bingo, I need a new toner cartridge!" Today we're going to try and help you.


This is a quick explanation of what printer toner actually is, why it's so important and why City Ink Express is proud to sell cheap printer toner cartridges to ensure that your printer always stays at the top of its game.

So what is toner? Essentially, toner is the more modern version of printer ink. Before you had printer cartridges, then you had the sophisticated CISS (continuous ink systems) systems and now in some laser printers and copy machines, you have toner. Toner is a special type of ink that comes in powder form, rather than the liquid (that gets everywhere) that we're used to! This powder ink comes in a cartridge which you can insert into the printer. When your toner cartridge is empty you can simply replace it or have it refilled - but that shouldn't happen too often! 


Why is it so important? Because it's the ink, silly! You'll struggle to do any printing without it!


Why do we stock cheap toner cartridges? Because we want you to get the most out of your printer. We have an extensive range of cheap toner cartridges, both genuine - Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, HP, Konica Minolta, Kyocera, Lexmark, OKI, Panasonic, Ricoh, Samsung, Sharp, Tally and Xerox toner cartridges - as well as an enormous variety of high quality replacement toner cartridges that will not compromise the quality of your printing work.

If you’re sick of going to the local library and forking over your loose change every time you need to print something, you may well have considered purchasing a printer of your very own. But if you’ve never owned a printer before, the unfamiliar jargon (not to mention the many available options) may leave you scratching your head. What’s a laser printer, and is it any better than an inkjet? What’s the difference between ink and toner? How on earth does a 3D printer work?

Fear not, citizen – CityInk Express will clear everything up for you. Here are some of the most common types of printer explained:

An HP Laser Printer

Laser Printer

Laser printers are popular for several reasons – they print very quickly, they’re reasonably quiet, and they’re pretty economical in terms of toner usage. Toner is more expensive than ink, but a toner cartridge will last far longer before it needs replacing. Also, since laser printers don’t use normal ink, you don’t have to worry about smudging that crisp new document you’ve just printed.


A Brother Inkjet Printer

Inkjet Printer

That description of laser printers may make inkjet seem the far inferior option, but that’s not really true. In fact, an inkjet printer is probably the better choice if you want to print in colour – the photos and documents that you print will have a higher quality than those printed by laser. Inkjet printers also tend to be smaller (i.e. more portable) and slightly cheaper than laser printers.

As already mentioned, inkjet cartridges are cheaper and less fiddly to change than toner cartridges, although if you’re going to be printing a lot, a laser printer may save you money in the long run since it will last longer on one cartridge.


A Dot Matrix Printer

Dot Matrix Printer

The dot matrix printer was once the very height of printing technology, but nowadays, it’s considered somewhat obsolete. It’s kind of like a typewriter, in that it uses pins to strike the paper and press ink onto the page. This results in a much lower print quality than laser and inkjet printers, although some companies still use dot matrix printers because the ‘impact’ printing style allows for carbon copies to be printed simultaneously.


a 3D Printer

3D Printer

A relative newcomer to the printing scene, you’ve probably read a fair bit about 3D printers over the last year or so. Obviously, this isn’t what you want for your university essays; a 3D printer is used to create three-dimensional models right before your eyes. You can create your own designs, or download other people’s creations from Cubify. A different kettle of fish altogether, but worth mentioning nonetheless!
