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.

FAQs

Question not answered?

Ask a question

Will this cartridge work in my HP 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 HP 88 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 HP 88 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 this cartridge work alongside HP Instant Ink cartridges?

No, you aren't able to use other cartridges alongside your HP Instant ink ones. Cartridges in the Instant Ink program have different coding, so whilst enrolled, you are locked into their service and must use their cartridges. Read our blog to learn more about HP Instant Ink.

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.
