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.

On the 6th July 2018 I ordered a CISS Continuous System for my Epson XP-645 Printer/scanner from CityInkExpress on the internet via eBay. The package duly arrived within the stated delivery time.


After watching the fitting process on YouTube, I installed the CISS system on my printer. The helpful CityInkExpress video made the fitting a simple task. The system worked perfectly after a few minor adjustments.



I would highly recommend the company.

I bought this continuous ink system from you for my Epson printer. Brilliant piece of kit. Easy to install with the video help that you have on your website.


You really have thought of everything!


Works really well and saves an absolute fortune as no cartridge replacements are required. Easy to refill the tanks from the refill bottles, which are so much more economical. Would recommend to anyone who does a lot of printing. Absolutely worth every penny and soon recouped.

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.

This is the first time I have used City Ink Express after buying numerous cheap CISS systems which have either not worked at all or ruined the print head after a month or so. I decided that the extra cost was worth it for the customer support, warranty and hopefully better quality system and ink. I originally ordered a Canon MG5150 CISS bundle but Shane emailed me very promptly asking if it would be ok to upgrade the order to the next model up (Canon MG5250) at no extra cost which I gratefully accepted. The printer arrived the next day and I had great communication from the courier. Everything was packaged well and all boxes undamaged.
Next step was setting the machine and CISS system up. As with all City Ink Express systems you can find very helpful tutorial videos on their YouTube channel so this is where I headed first and found the video to match the printer. The video was very thorough and easy to follow which made setup a breeze. As with most multi-function printers, CISS systems can be difficult to route due to having a scanner on top. This means that the lid on this model has to stay open slightly but a metal bracket is included for the job. The only criticism I have of the CISS system is the metal bracket may not be substantial enough to support scanning heavier items such as books as it only supports one side of the lid. It may be an idea to include two brackets, one for each side of the printer, to better distribute the weight of the scanner and make it more stable with the CISS system installed. Other than that setup went without a hitch following the video and everything I needed.


This is how the printer looks once setup is complete. Even with the lid open slightly everything functions as normal. I was worried that the slight slant may make scanning more difficult but the scanner is aligned from the back left corner so I found the slant actually helped keep documents in place.
When the printer was turned on for the first time it detected the cartridges and began its priming process which took around 5 minutes. I had to do a single head clean to pump some ink through the CISS system and remove any air from the tubes and after this the printer performed perfectly. All colours print well and look vibrant and text is very clear.

Overall I am extremely pleased with both the Canon MG5250 printer and the CISS system from City Ink Express. Shane replied to any questions I had promptly before purchase and the level of customer service throughout the transaction was superb. I have bought many CISS systems over the years and some have been disastrous. From now on I will be paying a bit extra and buying from City Ink Express. The quality of the system and ink seems far superior to any CISS system I have bought previously and I have somewhere I can go back to for refills which will be of the same high quality as the ink already in the system which is a big plus for me! I will be highly recommending City Ink Express from now on.
