I bought a Canon ip9900 and have been printing a lot of photos. I have already had to replace three of the cartridges (but I have printed A LOT of photos).

I read in another post where someone said Canon cartridges were easy to refill. If so where is the best place to get the ink?

If not, could someonesuggest an online site to purchase the cartridges at a fair price?

I would also like to know of a site to buy some photo paper. The local places around here do not have the larger sheets and I would think they are more expensive anyway.

Thanks

Get the ink from MIS www.inksupply.com or inkjet Goodies at www.inkjetgoodies.com

The standard way to fill them is to push out the original fill ball and use rubber balls you can buy from either of the above vendors. Someone who posts here manufactures aftermarket ink down under and recommended a putty that is common there. I couldn't find it, but Super Glue makes a similar product called Handi-Tak. I much prefer that to using the balls. I just drill a hole on top and seal it well with a very tiny bit of Handi-Tak.

The nice thing about the Canon cartridges is that they have no chips in the tanks. It measures the ink directly, so the tank shows full when you refill.

I get my paper from Red River because I have my old S9000 jerry rigged to print panoramas and want to use the same paper for normal prints and panoramas. Steve recommends a place that gets their paper from the same source as the manufacturers. I think it is the first link here: http://www.steves-digicams.com/printers.html#refill There is no way to jerry rig your 9900 for panoramas – Canon closed the workaround because they don't produce panorama paper. So I would go with Steve's recommendations and use FreePhotoPaper.com if I had a 9900.
