Advantages: Don’t spend beer money on new ink cartridges!
JR Inkjet Refill kits are the greatest! To start with you need to buy a colour refill kit.
This comes with three small bottles of ink in cyan, yellow and magenta enough for about 3-6 fills depending on your cartridge type. Also, you get a syringe with a blunt needle and cover to avoid accidents, and a set of three ink plugs and a plug extractor for the next time you refill the cartridge. The kit comes with complete instructions for refilling all the most common cartridge types. The black ink refill kit has the same tools and two bottles of black ink as most printers have double the black ink capacity.
Once you have the kits you can simply buy more ink in larger sizes (60ml and 250ml) saving even more money. I use a lot of black ink and I have the 250 ml black ink for £19.99 including VAT and delivery and this fills my cartridge over 50 times. This compares to £7.99 per cartridge or even compatible cartridges for £3.99 and represents a saving of hundreds of pounds.
Some modern photo-realistic printers use six colours to get greater realism to this end you can get light-cyan and light-magenta inks used in these six-colour printer or ‘photo’ cartridges in a single kit. You can also get a flush liquid if you want to use the cartridge for different colour ink.
From time-to-time you may have to replace the cartridge itself, especially if the cartridge has been left dry for a long time. In this case JR Inkjet sell compatible cartridges for most popular printers.

You may, like me, not be blessed with the best co-ordination so to avoid getting inky fingers when refilling cartridges, use a pair of those plastic gloves you can easily get for free from your local petrol station.
To make cartridges last as long a possible always keep them topped up or if you don’t want to refill the cart
ridge when it runs out wrap it in cling film so the internal wadding does not dry out.
