I have for many years settled quite happily with Canon printers and use Canon papers and inks as they produce excellent results. I always strive for quality.
Now that my granddaughter has developed (pardon the pun) a very keen interest in photography I am finding that my ink costs have soared. In the past I have never been happy with compatible inks either for their colour reproduction or being prone to fading but maybe quality might have improved in recent years.
Without having to try experimenting with different brands does anyone recommend any which can compete with the quality I get from Canon inks. The inks I use at present are Canon CLI-521 range and please bear in mind that I am in the UK.
