When it comes to home or office equipment, a printer is now a must-have. But when choosing one, many people don’t know what they want and what to look for, thus buying a particular model that is not suitable to their needs. So here are a few things you might want to take into consideration when shopping for a printer:

  1. Functions: printer or multifunction device? Lately, the multifunction devices offer the same print quality, with the benefits of having one device that does it all: printing, scanning, copying, faxing. The price is comparable to a normal printer, so it is a good idea to buy one if you don’t need very fast printing.
  2. Think ahead: consumables’ costs. Don’t fall into the mirage of a cheap printer. Usually, this comes with the inconvenience of expensive consumables, sometimes the equivalent of a new printer. And they don’t even last that long. So you might want to look for a printer that has refillable cartridges or that it is compatible with a CISS.
  3. Avoid printers using consumables with the print head “built in” the cartridge. These are usually the cheaper printers, and the print head is low quality. CISS or refilling won’t work as good and you will lose quality and money.
  4. Inkjet or laser? Unless you want to print a lot of black and white pages very fast, you are better off with an inkjet printer. It is more versatile, you can also print in color and on photo paper, with lower costs than a laser printer.
  5. Home use. You might not need all the extra options, super high quality and speed or special connectivity. A mid-class printer, that is reliable, more efficient and quiet will do the job of text printing and, ocasionally, a photo. Take a look here: CISS Canon.
  6. Office use. If you will use the equipment in an office environment, it’s better to choose something more efficient. You might need a fast multifunction device, with duplex-printing, scanner, copier, fax, that can be used by multiple users, so it should also have network interface via cable or wireless connection. Maybe one of these might interest you: CISS Epson.
  7. Is photography your hobby? If so, then you need a photo printer. It basically differs from a normal printer through the number of colors from which the image is composed and the print head quality. It is better to use photo paper in this case to obtain the maximum cost-quality ratio.
  8. Recommendations. After you’ve figured out what you need and have a couple of models in mind, ask for recommendations from your friends who already have one, read reviews online and buyers’ opinions. This way you will have a full view on what you are going to spend your money on.

Happy shopping!

After writing about the main benefits of a CISS, I thought I would explain a little more how it works.

The CISS (aka continuous ink supply system) is the best way to cut printing costs to their lowest possible, without affecting the quality of the print. Just imagine, up to 20 times cheaper with no hassle at all. It consists of a set of special ink cartridges, connected to ink reservoirs thorough small tubes.

Because of the capillary action, or capilarity – the property of a liquid to flow against gravity in narrow spaces, the ink from the external tanks is continuously delivered to the cartridges, so you can print even a large amount of pictures without worrying that the printer might run dry.

Depending of your printer model, the CISS has 4, 5, 6 or 8 separate tanks, each filled with a certain color. When you see – because the reservoirs are transparent – that one of the colors is running low, you just add a little more ink. Why lose the yellow and blue, when all you need is red? You can buy refill bottles for one color for low prices and be sure they will last you for a long, long time. Anyway, when you first order, the ink tanks are full, so it will be a while until you will need another refill.

The installation is very simple, takes 5 to 20 minutes, and you can also take a look at some video tutorials on youtube. Just be sure you have the right model for your printer. If you need help in making a choice or have any other questions, the staff from CissMarket will be more than glad to assist you. Why not give it a try?

Save up to 95% with CISSI was kindly asked to write a post in English on the CISS subject, and since I am a big fan I gladly accepted. As a result, I will answer a couple of frequently asked questions on the matter, so that whoever reads understands what this is all about and what the benefits are.

What is CISS?
CISS stands for continuous ink supply system. It is designated for inkjet printers and consists of external ink tanks connected to a special printer cartridge, enabling you to see exactly how much ink you have left. The ink in the tanks will last longer than any cartridge, original or refilled, and when you are close to running out… well, you just add some more ink. And so, your cartridges will never run dry.

Which one is the right one for me?
The bulk ink system depends on the make and model of your printer. All you have to do is click the link above and choose your printer and voila!

How much does it cost?
CISS is designed to be cost efficient. You can save up to 95% on your printing costs, depending on your printer model. You only pay once for the cartridge and ink tanks, and then just buy ink to refill. Also, it doesn’t matter if you print in color or black, it costs the same. Yup, that’s right. How many times did you print in grayscale because you were afraid of running out of color cartridge?

Are there any other benefits?
Yes, a lot actually.

  • you don’t have to be a doctor to refill the ink tanks
  • the print quality is equal to the classic cartridge, even better if we take into consideration the refilled cartridges
  • low ink cost
  • no weekly trips to the local refill center
  • easy installation

OK, where do I buy?
CISSmarket.com is a great resource for CISS. You can order online, pay with your credit card or PayPal and have the system delivered right to your door, anywhere in the EU.
