It recently came to my notice on a thread on the EOS Network that Canon ink prices have gone through the roof.
I was well aware of what has happened with gear prices as a result of the poor exchange rate, with some gear prices having increased by up to about 40 to 50 % in many cases, but was seriously shocked by the rate of change of ink cartridges.
I used to use the Canon Pixma Pro9000 as Dave currently does. I have been using the 9500 since last November so have to use a different range of carts for that, and as a result of that changeover haven't had to buy any ink since before the prices went silly earlier this year.
I used to pay around £7 per tank for the CLI-8 range from places like 7dayshop or Inkraider but now see they are around £12 each.
This is quite frankly exceeding what is sensible from the exchange rate variation and think Canon UK or Canon Europe really need to sort this out. I know from the Analytics stats that you Canon guys in Stockley Park and Amstelveen read this blog - so how about it guys!!!
Let us know your thoughts and let us have your best defence - give us your feedback please and we will post it!!
Bet you don't!!
Anyway, the best prices I have found are shown below - so if you need some any that you buy through here goes to help support the site. All patronage is most welcomed.
