I just bought inks in bulk, i have about 3 sets of inks. So i'm wondering will the inks go bad if i dont use them all quickly?

You say you bought bulk ink but have sets. If you actually bought bulk ink for refilling it seems to last almost indefinitely.

If you have sets of aftermarket cartridges they should last for over a year if they are left sealed properly. They might last almost indefinitely if they are individually shrink wrapped. You can probably guess by how well they are sealed.

I dont have refillable stuff.

I have 3 sets. as in 3 cyans, 3 magentas, etc. So 3 carts of each color and they are individually shrink wrapped pretty tight. I havent opened them.

in my experience inks tend to come with a use by date of about 2 years from the date of purchase.
You should be able to use them by then me thinks.
