Printer ink (bulk)
The most economical way to buy printer ink is in bulk (bottles). If you already bought a refill friendly deal, refill kit, or a CIS (continuous ink system), have the refill tools and just need a top-up of highest quality ink - you are on the right page...

New to ink refilling?
Consider getting a refill kit or a refill friendly cartridge/ink deal to start with. That way you get the correct inks, all the tools, plugs, instructions and anything else you might need to refill your printer cartridges.
Note: Syringes, needles, refill tools and plugs etc are also available separately here (if you know what you need).
Get the right ink...
You could fill any ink cartridge with just about any coloured liquid and it will sort of work. Wrong sort of ink, cheap ink, universal ink, even food colouring dye dissolved in water - all work to some degree - but not that well and not for very long. If you're keen to experiment, give it a go, but don't expect much and be prepared to buy a new cartridge when it fails to work.
If you expect great looking prints, long ink cartridge/print-head life and reliable printer operation - buy the best quality refill ink you can afford. Even high quality refill ink works out much cheaper than new ink cartridges and will save you a lot of money...so why risk using inferior inks..?
How much ink should you buy?
The more bulk ink you order at once, the cheaper it gets - but don't buy more than you are likely to use in a couple of years. Even top quality ink has a shelf life and starts to degrade at about two years. Cheap ink deteriorates quicker.
Note: Keep ink sealed in airtight containers and away from heat & light for best results. Also be careful when refilling, to use clean syringes/needles every time. Any foreign matter (old/dried ink, dust etc) can promote fungus growth in the ink, rendering it unusable. Don't use ink that seems to have thickened, changed colour, or if there is any sediment in the bottle.
