“Pelikan cartridges produce the best prints with Canon printers”

“Pelikan photos come out as good as the original”

The ink is highly water resistant and achieves consistently good results in the print quality of text and graphics. When printing photos, the tested printer cartridge by Pelikan achieved very good results. The handling of Canon ink cartridges when unpacking and installing the cartridge in the printer was also rated as “GOOD” when compared with cartridges by other manufacturers.

Excellent results

The outstanding quality of brand products has been confirmed time and again in various national and international ink cartridge tests in the past. This is also the case in the most recent test by Stiftung Warentest (issue 6/2015). Around 19 cartridges of various printers for Brother, Canon, Epson and HP were tested. Two sets of Pelikan ink cartridge were rated as “GOOD”.

All in all, Pelikan ink cartridges are confirmed as a good alternative to the original and bring savings to the user.
