Interesting. CAN be mixed... but does it yield correct colors?

Hear what you're saying ... but I think PC understood what I meant to ask. :-)

Nice website you have.

Here's the discussion and Jose Rodriguez himself comments that there are no issues with mixing the ink:

Bringing this back up.

Nathan, how have your results been? My first set of carts are low and I am ready to pickup a second set. I would love to just buy a set of OEM empties from Precision Color, but it sounds like they may be out of them. I would prefer to not have to modify them myself, but I may have to.

Why not just refill the cartridges you have?

Three weeks ago I bought the refill kit, chip reset device and scale. One of my existing cartridges had just run out. I refilled that and topped off all the others at the same time. Precision Color says you can mix the inks, and they recommend to top all cartridges, not just the low ones because the printer goes through a recharge function every time you replace one cartridge which uses more ink and can fill up the waste ink absorber pad faster.

I've only done a couple prints since my refill and so far so good.

By the way, there was an issue with PC version of red, so they are now supplying OEM red until they figure it out.

I assume you mean you refilled all besides the yellow, correct?

I want two sets so I don’t have to refill when i am on the middle of a printing session. I can just swap sets, and continue on.

been using precision ink and refilling myself for the past 4 years now I think. Zero issues other than some clogged print heads. But I buy the printer deals and sell everthing off and because of that I have a few backup print heads.

I think their newest ink is far better than it was years ago in that regard. I don't deal with clogged heads anymore when it use to be a think I literally HAD to print weekly.

When one gets very low or empty, I refill them all by weight.

Talley was actually the one that inspired me to give Precision Color a try, thanks man!

I'm blushing lol.

I've gone through a few sets of the 2oz then finally bought the 4oz. I've told myself next time just go ahead and buy the 8oz bottles.

I've come to learn what colors get used the most. Some could go a long time on 4oz others like magenta/yellow/cyan need 8oz.

I've been using them on my Pro-10 since they came out with the Signature Edition. The photos come out looking the same to me as if they were the Canon ink. I have a bottle of the original red he supplied with the Signature Edition but I have not used it. He has since switched to OEM Canon red at an increased cost. Refilling is easy and the colors do last quite a while. I bought the 4oz kit and it seems one could easily get 8-10 refills per color before needing a new bottle.

I think it depends on what model Canon printer you are running. As I understand it the yellow problem is with the Canon Pro-100 which uses the dye inks. I don't think it is a problem with the printers using pigment inks such as the Pro-10. Of course, I have been wrong before. ;)
