  • Could you tell me if using non-Canon inks can cause damage to my printer by blocking up the inkjets, only I've been informed that they do? If that's the case, do you do sets for the Canon Pixma iX6550 printer and at what cost? Can you also provide me with the cost of individual ink cartridges?

    Thank you for your question please find the link below to the cartridges for your canon pixma ix6550

    Compatible cartridges work just as well as genuine cartridges and shouldn't block the ink jets, the only difference is that it hasn't got the canon name on the cartridge.
    I hope this helps

Canon Pixma iX6550 Printer Review

Expert review of the Canon Pixma iX6550 printer

Our Verdict:

A relatively affordable medium-format printer, the Canon Pixma iX6550 allows you to print up to A3+ sized outputs fast. It is naturally wider than other printers at 549mm, although it is still compact compared to other medium format printers. Print quality is superb, with maximum resolution up to 9600x2400 dpi. The Canon Pixma iX6550 also allows borderless printing and boasts fast print speeds. It does not, however, support PictBridge or Wi-Fi connectivity.


The Canon Pixma iX6550 has telescopic paper trays to lessen footprint. It features a glossy black shell typical of Canon printers, making it a stylish addition to your home set up. It connects to a PC via USB, and has minimal, easy-to-use controls (only 2 for powering on/off, and cancelling print jobs). There is no LCD screen or PictBridge port for direct printing from supported devices.


The print engine of the Canon Pixma iX6550 features the same 5-ink cartridges, which significantly drives down running costs. It has print speeds of up to 11.3ppm for monochromatic pages, and 8.8ppm for colour pages. The Canon Pixma iX6550 accepts a good range of media types, and prints quite well on glossy or matte photo paper – no speckling or banding.


Expect occasional bleeding when it comes to plain text, but this rarely happens. The Canon Pixma iX6550 could have been integrated with Wi-Fi connectivity, or at least the addition of PictBridge support. Still, it is a good quality medium-format ideal for home or small business usage.
