I've been on backorder notification lists at Adorama and B&H or a month or more to get ink for my printer.

I have run out of the stores I had, so I took a look at the tanks going out soonest and ordered those two off of Amazon, at higher prices.

I've only had this printer for 9 months, and have always used Canon inks. Are there other alternatives that you folks have had good luck with?

I just don't want to have invested in this system, then have to still send my print jobs out to labs because I can't find ink for my printer.


The PRO-1000 uses the same inks as the higher models 2000/4000/6000.

With some effort you can refill from cartridges for those models (same quality at a lower cost/ml).

You also can buy 3th party ink.

Jose Rodriguez on youtube will explain everything.
