About Canon Printers, Ink, and Toner

Popular Canon Inkjet Printers

Canon’s most popular inkjets printers are the PIXMA and MAXIFY families. The PIXMA printer family is known for its affordability and reliability. These printers are great for both document and photo printing, and ink efficiency, which makes it perfect for home users and small offices.

PIXMA

All the PIXMA printers use PGI (Pigment) and CLI Ink (Chromalife Dye). While our compatible and remanufactured cartridges don’t utilize the same patented ink, they still produce top-quality printing results for all popular Canon printers.

Some of the most popular printers in the PIXMA family are the PIXMA MX922 and MX920. These printer models, together with its PGI-250XL and CLI-251XL ink cartridges, offer exceptional resolution ideal for producing high-quality detail in documents and photos and a 5-color ink system for business-quality text and vivid photos.

Another popular printer from the PIXMA family is the Pro-100, which is ideal for photographers with its A3+ borderless printing, and an OIG (Optimum Image Generating) system that ensures perfect prints every time. The ink cartridge used by the PIXMA Pro-100 is the CLI-42.

MAXIFY

The Maxify printer family is designed for printing documents. It uses PGI (Pigment-based links) that aren’t suitable for photo printing. However, these ink cartridges are larger than usual and are able to produce more prints than an average ink cartridge. The most popular MAXIFY printer is the MB2320 with its PGI-1200XL ink cartridge, which has a wireless printing feature that lets you print documents from your smartphone or tablet.

POPULAR CANON TONER PRINTERS

The most popular toner printers by Canon are from the ImageClass and the i-Sensys printer families. The ImageClass printer family is known for its multi-functionality of printing, scanning, and copying, making it very ideal for printing documents. The MF624CW, MF733CDW and the MF634CDW are the most commonly used printers and are perfect for home and small offices that require printing a large number of documents.

IMAGECLASS

For the ImageClass printers, model numbers can have C, D, and W, which indicates color, duplex and wireless, respectively. The single cartridge system of these printers combines the toner and drum into one unit, making it simple to replace.

I-SENSYS

For the i-Sensys printer family, its most popular printer is the i-SENSYS LBP-113w, which is a single-function printer that has a 150-sheet paper capacity and can print 22 pages per minute. It also has wireless and USB connectivity, perfect for offices. I-Sensys printers use the Canon 047 toner and 049 drum and are designed for printing documents and colored documents.

COMPATIBLE VS REMANUFACTURED CANON INK & TONER

COMPATIBLE
INK & TONER

Compatible printer cartridges are brand new cartridges built by an aftermarket manufacturer. The actual ink cartridges may slightly vary in appearance compared to the brand name cartridges or original equipment manufacturer (OEM). An example of a compatible cartridge is our Canon CLI-42.

Despite that, it does not infringe on any patents and is designed to work on the printer designed for it, similar to OEM cartridges. Because they’re built by an aftermarket manufacturer, these will cost much cheaper than OEM cartridges

REMANUFACTURED
INK & TONER

Meanwhile, remanufactured printer cartridges are recycled OEM cartridges. Essentially, these are cartridges that have been cleaned, restored and refilled with ink. These are tested to ensure that they are working perfectly. Remanufactured printer cartridges are cheaper than genuine OEM cartridges, but are slightly more expensive than compatible printer cartridges An example of a remanufactured cartridge is our Canon PG-245XL & 246XL.

CANON INK GUIDE

Canon ink cartridges have their own naming convention:

  • PGI

    Pigment-based inks, perfect for documents
  • CLI

    Dye-based inks, great for photos
  • BCI

    Pigment-based inks that come in sets of 3 or 6
  • BCIe

    Dye-based ink. The “e” stands for enhanced

You can use our website to identify which type of ink is compatible for your printer.

Page Yield is also an important thing to look for when choosing the right type of cartridge for your printer. This is the approximate number of pages a cartridge can produce before it runs out of ink or toner. Cartridges often come in either standard yield or high yield. High-yield cartridges print more pages compared to standard-yield cartridges. High-yield cartridges are indicated by cartridge an XL, XXL, JUMBO, or Super High Yield attribute on their product names.

Take note that page yield only refers to the estimated number of prints it can produce, not its size. So an XXL cartridge will be the same size as an XL one but can print more pages. Ink cartridges usually have a page yield of up to 1000 pages, while toner cartridges have a yield of more than 1000 pages. You can find page yield information in all our products and use them to choose which cartridge offers the best value for your money.

CANON PRINTER MAINTENANCE/INK-SAVING TIPS

  • Print in grayscale when printing black-and-white documents.

    Some black-and-white printing jobs use more than just black ink, unless specified in the printer settings. This helps you conserve your non-black inks.

  • Use print preview before printing.

    Make sure you’ll only be printing the information you need, and delete any that is unnecessary.

  • Print in draft mode for reference materials.

    Draft mode is a setting you can set before printing a document. This makes the printer print a lower resolution version of the document.

  • Choose a more ink-friendly font.

    It might not seem like a big difference, but some fonts such as Arial can use up to 27% more ink to print than other fonts such as Calibri or Century Gothic.

TROUBLESHOOTING WHEN USING COMPATIBLE/REMANUFACTURED CANON INK & TONER

Canon printers all have a very peculiar way to bypass error messages. If the printer throws back an error message while printing using a compatible or remanufactured cartridge, simply hold the Cancel/Stop button for 10 seconds, and it will force the printing job through. This is also a great way to troubleshoot when the printer shows an empty cartridge or when the cartridge cannot be detected.

The page yield is the approximate number of pages a cartridge can produce before it runs out of ink or toner. Cartridges often come in either standard yield or high yield. High-yield cartridges print more pages compared to standard-yield cartridges and are typically indicated by an XL, XXL, JUMBO, or Super High Yield attribute in their product names.
