PIXMA ink cartridges

Some things work better together. That’s why it makes sense to use Canon genuine inks and photo papers, designed in harmony with PIXMA printers, to deliver the best possible results. For beautiful, long lasting print quality, trust Canon engineered inks.

Why use original Canon consumables?

Genuine Canon inks bring out the best in your Canon printer, so you are always assured of exceptional results. Canon inks will keep your Canon printer going at peak performance.

Brighter, more accurate colours


The genuine Canon ink formula lets you achieve incredibly bright and accurate colours that make photographs truly memorable. Skin tones look very natural while bright colours are vivid yet realistic. The pigment black ink used for printing documents produces crisp, clear prints of small letters and sharp lines.

Long lasting photos


Original Canon inks and photo papers are made for each other. As a result you can produce superb quality prints at home that are resistant to fading long after printing. Printing with our photo printers using genuine ChromLife100, ChromaLife100+ or LUCIA inks on Canon photo papers protects your images for a lifetime.

Protect your printer


Canon’s unique FINE print head technology used in every PIXMA printer delivers outstanding image quality and high-speed document printing. With ink nozzles opening diameters as small as small as 0.009mm it is important to use inks formulated specifically to work with the precise FINE print heads. Genuine inks maintain print quality and prolong life of your printer.
