Hey bearskin: I get my ink cartridges from here: Databazaar I have been dealing with them for about 5 yrs. Very good service. They are located in Florida. I have been recommended from other users to use original cartridges, not refills or remanufactured. My printer is 5yrs old and works like new. Some have used refills with no problem, that I know of, but I prefer to use original cartridges. Just my opinion. Barb bar5 I ordered 2 cartridges from databazaar. saved about $2 per cartridge and shipping was free. I have to drive 50 miles to wallyworld just for ink and it made more sense to order them. they are canon original cartridges. thanks.
