If you’re looking for the best information about availability of PFI inks for Canon large format printers, you’ve come to the right place! No matter if you’ve had the printer for years or you’re researching a printer you’d like to buy/acquire, knowing when the inks will go away is important information!
The excitement of creating and selling large printed images can quickly influence the decision to get a printer without doing much research. One of the factors often overlooked is the availability of supplies and support/service.
This post covers a list of Canons’ PFI ink tanks that have been given a date on which they will be discontinued. The sooner the date, the more I’d recommend you look at a different and more recent model printer.
Canon large format printers have 4 levels of discontinued.
The following list of PFI ink tanks are still being manufactured and are readily available but have all been given an end of life date. Also included are colors and forecasted date of last availability.
If your printers ink tanks weren’t on this list, you may have a model that has already been discontinued, or a model on the current line. Since you’re looking at this page, I think it’s safe to say your printer is discontinued because you’d know if it were a brand new, current line printer.
