Carolyn of St. Petersburg recently had to buy a new printer and could no longer find one that used the individual ink tanks that her old Canon i960 series used. As a result, she has 10 new ink tanks that need a good home. Carolyn says that these ink tanks can be used in other Canon printers as well, and are the BCI-6 series. Check the series number for your type of printer ink on the side of the printer ink box. If you are interested, please leave a message at (727) 347-4329 and Carolyn will arrange to get the ink to you.
