I am fairly familar with some of the better known suppliers, but inksell is one I am not
familar with. Given that unfamilarity factor, I would be reluctant to order from them unless I have some reliable information that they are decent and their ink is safe. I sure don't want to play you bet your printhead with anyone I don't know.

But two positive things to say about inksell---they seem to have different blends for different printers--fail that test and I would always say no---and they have a toll free telephone number---so you can have a real live human being you can ask questions of and get a real time impression of how knowledgable the staff is.

Then I checked prices---and when they are asking $6.95 for a third party Canon BCI-6 cartridge, I place them among the highest charging company I have ever seen. For that price I can get four cartridges and change from a similar supplier---who I know is good, has a toll free number, and has very close to OEM color balance.

I want to know who makes the ink I buy and use. Period, end of story. Why? Well, if you have a choice of buying ink from, let's say - Wang Son Li Ltd Taiwan, or So Won Ki, S. Korea, or Image-Specialists USA, which would you choose? And, which would you choose if you were re-bottling/re-selling ink? First answer - number 3, second answer the cheapest. The other alternative I have in knowing who makes the ink is using the OEM ink, Epson/Canon. And don't tell me Epson/Canon does not make their ink, that is beside the point.

Well, I knew someone would just have to ask the question - does Epson make ink? And, well, I don't know, but I doubt it. I would think Epson/Canon formulates an ink (or works with a chemist to formulate ink) and then specifies that this formula be made by XYZ Ink Co. That's all that is required of Epson/Canon, and to quality check the ink supplier. Now, all we need is for Epson/Canon to make public their ink formulas. But you know, I doubt if that will happen, soon. So if we want ink compatible/comparable with OEM we have to buy ink from a supplier that has developed their own formula. Right???? Now we are back to my queston - do I care who formulates and makes the ink I use? I do.
