Compatible Ink To Replace The Genuine CLi-581

These Compatible Extra High Capacity Canon CLi-581XXL Photo Blue Ink Cartridges are brand new cartridges made by a third party company as a money saving alternative to using the genuine Canon ink. They're fantastic inks that give you:

  • the same easy installation
  • print quality as good as the original Canon inks
  • a 12 month money back guarantee

This compatible blue is manufactured to strict quality guidelines and standards, guaranteeing you get the best print quality in your Canon printer at a fraction of the cost.

Why choose this ink?

This photo blue is a brand new cartridge manufactured by a third party company as a direct replacement for the original Canon CLi-581 extra high capacity XXL ink. It has the latest chip and will just drop into your printer and work straight away. It can work with other originals and compatibles installed in the machine without issue, so don't worry about mix and matching. The colours are designed for both home and photo printing, making them ideal for however you use your machine.

The compatible CLi-581xxl is a direct replacement for the extra high capacity version, which is the longest lasting cartridge in your printer and gives the cheapest printing costs possible in your machine. You'll enjoy the same high yield of up to 9,140 pages per cartridge, all at a fantastic low price. Please note we don't provide the cost per page for this product based on the 9,140 pages as we find the page yield figure from Canon to be misleading. This blue is rarely used when printing, only really being called on when you do photo prints, and is very hard to give an expected yield on due to this.

Every XXL CLi-581 compatible enjoys a full 1 year money back guarantee, giving you peace of mind while saving lots of money! Order today to enjoy free, fast delivery.

The cartridge fitted easily.
I encountered problems with the black ink cartridges (2) and replaced them with cartridges from another source, which returned the printer to its normal efficiency.

Just wrote review. Does not appear on your chart which only shows 5 star reviews - nothing else.
My experience is different from all those others. You suggest it may require five efforts to get it to register. I am now up to 18 refusals.
Less than one star really, but the other two colours worked perfectly. Photo Blue is important to me.

So, as I said before, disappointing.

Question not answered?

Ask a question

Will this cartridge work in my Canon printer?

Use our 'Check this ink fits your printer' box at the top of this page to confirm this cartridge is suitable for your printer model. In most cases the model number is written on the front of your printer.

Note: These cartridges will only work in printers purchased in the UK and Europe. Printers purchased outside of these zones will have different coding and electronics.

How much ink is in a Canon PGi-580 & CLi-581 Compatible cartridge?

We don't advise on the number of millilitres, as not every cartridge prints using the same droplet size, so two cartridges for two different printers may both have 5ml of ink, but one will print more than the other. Instead, more accurately, the industry standard is based on printing 5% of an A4 page.

How many pages will this Canon PGi-580 & CLi-581 Compatible cartridge print?

This is known as page yield. The number of pages you'll be able to print depends on the cartridge you purchase and the kind of printing you do. The page yields shown higher up the page are based on printing 5% of the area on an A4 page.

Learn more about how many pages you'll be able to print with this cartridge in this article.

Will an XL cartridge still fit in my printer?

If you choose a high-capacity (XL) version of this cartridge it will still fit in your printer. The size of the cartridge is the same, but they are just filled up more to provide you with extra prints, often at a substantially lower cost per page printed.

Will this compatible ink cartridge work with my printer?

Providing you haven't had a recent firmware update (see question below), you shouldn't have a problem. The chips on our cartridges are updated regularly to avoid firmware interference, but in the unlikely event your printer did reject the cartridges, you are covered by our 12-month guarantee.

What are firmware updates?

Firmware updates are updates put through your printer by the printer manufacturers (e.g. HP, Epson, Canon etc.). The update can contain code that stops any third-party cartridges from working, so that you can only use original brand cartridges. In most cases you cannot undo this update, but you can switch updates off to prevent it.

Do the cartridges display ink levels?

Yes, these cartridges are designed to work no differently from originals, so all the same functions should be available.

The cartridges look different to the originals or ones I have had before, will they fit my printer?

Third-party cartridges must be designed to differ slightly from the originals, to fit in with legal copyright requirements. However, the cartridges are still made to fit in your printer and are tested rigorously to ensure compatibility with your printer. We use a small number of trusted suppliers and while the look of the cartridges can vary slightly from each one, they will fit your printer.
