We had our printer’s CISS serviced yesterday and I just had to write about my experience with “Ink All-You-Can”.
Last year, we had our Canon MP198 printer/scanner converted to a CISS so we could save on ink costs. It was done by this company called Multi-Colors.
We tried calling them up yesterday at the number provided at their website but it seems that the company either closed shop or changed numbers.
Either way, we had no way to contact them and we needed our printer fixed.
We decided to look for a CISS service somewhere here in the South and we found one in SM Southmall called “Ink All-You-Can”.
So off we headed to Southmall, with printer in tow.
(Artie actually had to carry it from the parking lot to the 3rd floor, at the Cyberzone where “Ink All-You-Can” was.)
When we got to their stall, Bob attended to us.
The Printer Problem
At first we thought the problem with our printer was the lack of ink. Earlier in the day I bought bottles of ink but after taking a closer look, the line where the ink flows to the cartridge had air in them making it harder for the ink to travel to the cartridge.
When we got to “Ink All You Can”, Bob did some troubleshooting to make sure that problem was just indeed the air in the line. However, it seemed that the problem was caused by a broken colored ink cartridge instead. We had to buy a new colored ink from the nearby store and that was what he used to fix the printer.
All in all, the process was very quick and took less than 30 minutes.
The ink cartridge was around P1,200 and we paid “Ink All-You-Can” P500 for their consultation and service.
The reason why I wanted to blog about my “Ink All You Can” experience was because of Bob’s excellent service.
(And excellent service always deserves recognition.)
If you’re from the South and you’re looking for a place to have your old printers converted to CISS, I would recommend going to “Ink All You Can” of SM Southmall and look for Bob.
He obviously knew his stuff unlike most attendants that when you ask questions, they just mumble some words.
He didn’t hard sell considering he had the opportunity to convince us to switch our old CISS to theirs. We were thinking of getting their CISS since theirs looked sleeker and less clunky. Bob was just right there waiting for us to make a decision on our own instead of pressuring us to buy from them.
(I really dislike hard selling people.)
I didn’t feel like he was just after making a sale. I really felt that he was genuinely concerned about fixing our broken CISS and wanted to give us the best options.
(You know the times when you feel like someone is just after your money? It wasn’t like that all.)
He also reminded us and taught us how to maintain our CISS. He even taught us a few things about the CISS, too, like proper storage, placing of the CISS, etc. All these things which our old supplier never did.
I was just really impressed as it’s very rare for us to encounter this kind of service nowadays. A service where you feel that you paid your money’s worth and more.
So, to “Ink All-You-Can”, you should probably give Bob a raise or a promotion, haha!
Ink All-You-Can Prices
If you’re looking to have your printer converted to CISS, do check out “Ink All-You-Can”.
I can’t vouch for the same experience in other branches, but I’m pretty happy about the one in SM Southmall.
“Ink All-You-Can” can convert most printer models and brands (Canon, Epson and Brother).
The cost for converting a Canon printer is P3,000 while the conversion of a Brother printer is P3,500.
I didn’t get to ask how much it would cost to convert an Epson printer, though.
