Excellent quality cartridge and ink, low price and quick delivery. I have used Stinkyink for years and will continue to do so. What more can I say?


Actually I'm not sure - the printer stopped printing black after I put this cartridge in! Is is the print head, is it the cartridge. Still investigating.

But your delivery service and speed is great - thanks.

Hi Hugh,

I'm sorry the printer isn't printing black at the moment.

Could you confirm the model number please and also let me know exactly what you mean by the printer isn't printing any black? I.e. is the black coming out but the print is poor, is there no black coming out at all, are you getting an error message etc. Thank you.

I can then help you to try and get it working again and arrange a replacement if need be.

If there is anything else I can help you with please let me know.

Kind Regards,

Bethan Owen

I have been using the compatible HP 88 inks for many years in my HP Officejet Pro K550. I rely on good quality because I print our club's magazine. This, together with price and superfast delivery makes for an easy recommendation to anyone.


Works just as good as the one from H P.


I've used the Compatible HP 88 Black ink cartridge for over three years in my Officejet Pro printer now. Installation is as simple - just put them in. The quality and reliability are as good as any other ink and the price is far better. These are totally reliable inks.


Living in the middle of nowhere, it is the speed of the delivery, as much as the price that is attractive. But then the reliable quality of the compatible cartridge is just as attractive too. Can't go wrong really! Keep handing your cards out to friends and family.

I am looking to order a catridge for a HP Officejet pro K550-
Would the printer function on a single black ink catridge only


Unfortunately those machines need to have all four cartridges present, otherwise they won't print. Once the four are in though you should be able to set it to black & white printing only.
