My wife brought me a CISS after lots of frustrating episodes with ink cartridges.

Prior to fitting I made sure my printhead was thoroughly clean with no blocked nozzles. The kit is complete and includes all you need and a few spares. Instructions for fitting via good quality YouTube videos that show and explain things very well. The fitting process took approximately 30 minutes and is very simple to carry out.

If you are having printer issues I would thoroughly recommend this kit, it is flawless when printing.

I have purchased many items including CIS systems for my 3 printers which came with very clear instructions and work excellent.

I have also purchased normal ink and sublimation ink for many years and have never had any problems, I buy all my sublimation paper from CityInkExpress, as I find it excellent quality.

If at any time I have had a problem someone has always answered my query.

Thanks CityInkExpress for your service.

I have been using CityInkExpress products for a number of years, and I can honestly say they're the best inks I've ever used, their pigment ink is even better than the original Canon stuff, believe it or not!

I run a small card printing business and their CISS system and inks have saved me an absolute fortune compared to buying the original ones.

I’ve had to call their support line a couple of times and the experience was nothing but positive, I was recommended which printer and inks to buy for my needs.

I would recommend this company to anyone without hesitation.

I have been using this ink for the last 5 years. I highly value this product due to number of factors:

- it doesn't spatter around

- it dries quickly

- the colours are vibrant, not something common with other manufacturers.

The postage is always quick, customer service efficient. Any problems I had over the last 5 years, this company was quick to rectify.

A very happy customer.

I bought the pack for empty cartridges and ink refills for my Canon printer, it is great as you can get lots of refills from one bottle of ink, and is cheaper than buying replacement cartridges and is better for the environment.

I will definitely continue to get my refills from CityInkExpress.


Many smaller Canon desktop printers that's use tri colour carts / 2 cartridges per printer don't have the room inside for free movement of the inkline tubes on a ciss making it impossible to fit one without cutting sections of the printer away which is not something you want to do for obvious reasons.


Typically tricolour cartridges are expensive to buy and don't contain a huge amount of ink , you can normally buy standard capacity and high capacity cartridges


What is a refillable pod cartridge ?

This is plastic insert filled with ink that inserts into your cartridge


how to modify a cartridge to make it suitable


Please see our video Here


How many times / pods can i insert before the print head fails and i need a new cartridge ?


During testing we found on an unused genuine cartridge we were averaging 8 pods before the print head failed and we needed a new cartridge -  that's this many inserts on one set of genuines.



Potentially nearly 7000 prints based  @ 5% coverage , if you are using a used / remanufactured / used / compatible cartridge this will be reduced based on the condition of the print head - either way its a great money saver and based on the table of costs above one of the cheapest ways to print on your printer.


We sell this package with various options including just the refill pods on there own for refills or if you are using your own cartridges or you can buy the complete kit with 2 unused genuine cartridge all options are shown below

We have used CityInkExpress a number of times for our HP Envy 4500 Printer and Continuous Ink System.

We have telephoned them for advice as to which ink to purchase (as our printer is a little old) and have been very happy with their recommendations in terms of suitability, efficiency and cost.

We have found their service both responsive and reliable and are more than happy to use them again and recommend them

We are please to announce the release of refillable ink cartridges for the following printers WF-4740DTWF,WF-4720DWF,WF-4725DWF,WF-4730DTWF,WF-4740DWF,WF-4730DWF now ciss arc chips ( auto reset ) have become available a ciss continuous ink system will soon follow 3 months +.


The chip prices are being kept high at the moment so the chip manufacturer can claw back some of the development costs and we would expect the price to lower in around 6 - 12 months 


The cartridges can be purchased here
