The manufacturer's stated retail price for an original cartridge is $ 11.95. This means that the system ships with the equivalent amount of ink as $ 764.80 worth of original cartridges, an immediate saving of $ 414.80. Ongoing savings are even higher. A 4 oz refill bottle of Fotonic for Canon ink costs $ 19.00 and contains the equivalent ink as over 8 original cartridges, or $ 95.60 worth.

The savings from using Ink2image bulk ink can be quite considerable. A user who, for instance, consumed a set of normal cartridges per week on these printer models would spend around $ 4,971 per year on original cartridges.

Two ink options are available for the Canon i9900 bulk ink feed system. Firstly, i2i Absolute Match C1 dye inks are color matched to the original Canon inks and have a similar light fastness. Secondly, the Fotonic inks for Canon have a wider color gamut and enhanced fade resistance of around 25-30 years in average indoor display conditions. The Fotonic for Canon inks require the use of custom ICC color profiles, and Ink2image provides many free profiles for this purpose.
