The Canon PGI-580 PGBK black ink cartridge is ideal for printing text on plain paper when you want perfect results that don’t smudge or fade. Get crisp, defined text documents every time you use this pigment based ink in your Canon Pixma printer and don’t settle for anything less. This is the standard sized version of this ink cartridge and it is also available as the PGI-580 PGBK XL and the PGI-580 PGBK XXL. These two higher volume options contain considerably more ink which makes them perfect for busy households or offices that need to print more documents. The larger cartridges contain so much more ink that we advise our customers to think about their requirements before they buy. If you don’t print much the XXL may go past it’s best before it is all used up.
