Find the best Canon ink cartridge for your printer.
The most important part of shopping for Canon ink cartridges is finding the right one for your printer. Each Canon printer ink cartridge is designed to work with specific printer models and is not compatible with all Canon printers.
The most significant divide when it comes to Canon printers is between Canon inkjet printers and Canon laser printers because they use different technologies to apply images to the page. Therefore, they each require different materials to print. For example, Canon inkjet printers spray tiny droplets of Canon ink onto the page in just the right combinations to achieve specific tones and shapes. Meanwhile, Canon laser printers employ static electricity to adhere Canon toner (a kind of powdered ink) to each page.
Inkjet printers can be a little more precise and vibrant in their color printing, which means they will handle various types of printer paper, including glossy photo paper. Meanwhile, laser printers are faster (better for high-volume projects), but you will sacrifice some quality if you want color prints. Also, laser printers can’t use paper that reacts poorly to heat.

Getting the most out of your Canon toner and ink.
If you want to get the most out of your Canon printer cartridges, you should always follow the installation instructions precisely. For instance, some Canon toners perform better if you shake them right before installation.
Keep in mind that you can also conserve cartridges of Canon toner and ink by choosing draft mode when printing documents that don't need to be high quality. Plus, it’s worth noting that your computer is not the only device from which you can print. You can also learn how to print from your tablet. You can even print photos from your phone.
