It is so nice to get a new computer, but often with this gift, we inherit the task of loading an old printer, which we have no longer kept the drivers for.  Printer drivers allow the operating system to communicate with and run the printer.  You can find any driver you need on-line, if not through your operating system. 

Select your printer brand below, then you can download the correct driver for your printer model and operating system.

Name Your Printer - Winner Announcement

What printer model do you use?  Clickinks asked, and our customers answered.  There are a lot of new and old Epson Stylus inkjet printers out there, as well as numerous HP printers.  Canon, Kodak, Lexmark and Brother Multifunctions showed up, too.  Kodak owners seem to like their printer for the great pictures and Brother owners seem to like their printers for everything else.  And by quick observation, dude no one got a Dell.   

We offered 1 lucky winner from Clickinks Facebook and Clickinks Twitter fan pages replacement ink for their printer, and are so excited to announce the winners.




























Jewel Nickolisen of Nebraska will receive her Epson Stylus CX6600 ink and David O'Mara of Idaho will receive ink for his Epson Stylus CX8400.

Thanks for playing, and follow along for more great chances to win your ink!

Wifi Printing Now Available For Under $100

Whoever first decided to incorporate Wifi connectivity into printers was onto a good thing. The technology enables multiple people to share the printer without complex networking. It's also perfect for notebook owners who can print without getting manacled by USB cables. The only downside to date has been the cost: consumers interested in printer portability had to spend more than $100 for the privilege.

Fortunately, now Epson has corrected this oversight by releasing the NX420: the first ever printer incorporating 802.11n Wifi available for $99.99. The printer also includes Scan and Copy functions, and special features such as Automatic Photo Correction and Red Eye Removal. Perhaps best of all, Epson promises the NX420 will take ink cartridges costing as little as $8.99. In other words, wireless printing suddenly became much more affordable.

The new printer isn't presently in stock at the Epson store. As soon as it becomes available though, expect to find compatible ink cartridges available at discount prices from Clickinks.com.

Will that New Printer Save your Green backs?

Go Green today, not just because it is St. Patrick’s Day, but because the green is a reminder of our Earth friendly ways that, on some level, we all strive for. Even as we aim to recycle and keep loads out of the landfill, there has been an urge lately to buy more printers, throwing perfectly functioning printers in the trash all in the name of saving on ink.

When inside an office supply chain, you may have looked at the high retail prices of your ink or toner cartridges, and then looked at the sale price of a new printer. Don’t let it fool you, if it seems too good to be true – it probably is.

HP, Epson and other printer manufacturers are guilty of this; they sell the printers at low prices, with nothing more than a starter cartridge included, and then increase the price of the subsequent cartridges. By encouraging consumers to buy a new printer, they are creating a lot of unnecessary environmental waste.

The solution is to keep your printer out of the landfill and keep more of your money in pocket. Purchase remanufactured (professionally refilled and recycled) ink cartridges from a reputable company like Clickinks.com. Your printer, wallet and grandchildren will thank you.

Print Great Photos from Your iPhone

I don’t know about you, but since getting my iPhone, and really ever since Smart phones became so “smart”, my laptop does not get the every day usage it used to see from me. I do still have to log in for a few tasks, such as printing photos.

There are some useful and creative iPhone apps that allow you to even print photos from the iPhone. There are some great, free apps that you can install to print to a Wi-Fi network enabled printer.

Looking for more fun with photos? PS Mobile redeems the lack of editing in the iPhone Camera with Photoshop style editing. Another free app, PS Mobile allows you to crop, brighten, add borders and even upload and host on Photoshop.com.

What Mobile phone apps have you found to make taking or printing photos easier?

Now you can print a beautiful cake

Professional bakeries, and home based cake decorators, a new fun way to decorate is now available. Novelty baked goods such as photograph cakes have been made at larger commercial bakeries and grocery stores, now you can decorate your own cake at home using edible ink. Cake decoration has long been a serious art. From birthday cakes to wedding cakes, cake artists will tell you that it is all about presentation. All you need is a good photo printer from Canon or Epson, like the Canon IP or Canon Pixma, compatible ink cartridges or a refill kit and edible icing sheets.


Many cake decorating supply stores carry edible ink and icing sheets. I even found it online at Kopykake and Icingmagic

Once an image is printed on an icing sheet, you can simply place it on top of the frosted cake or other baked good. The icing sheet will seamlessly absorb into cake frosting.

The use of an inkjet printer allows any one that is proficient with a computer to display perfect logos, complete Photoshop designs, family photographs and more like a true culinary artist.

You may want to thoroughly clean your printer before inserting your cartridges filled with edible ink. This way you can have your cake and feel comfortable eating it too.

I found a beautiful example at Sweetmoments


Who knew a regular photo printer could do so much! Whether you are a professional culinary artist or a mom who loves to create top notch birthday cakes, you will want to experiment with edible inks and see where this new method of cake decoration takes you.

If you have a great cake recipe or have accomplished a beautiful design, please share with us in the comments below.

Epson Conquers The Printer Cable With iPhone App

For years the printer cable was a tether by which the computer user was kept in spitting distance of their Epson printer. A slave were they to the length of that copper wire. But no longer. For, according to a December 14th, 2009 press release from Epson, owners of network capable Epson printers, including the Artisan 810 and Workforce 610, will be able to print their images wirelessly. The means of this freedom? Nothing less than Epson’s very own iPrint Application, for use with the iPhone.


The Epson App is available from the iTunes App store, seated alongside similar releases from rival brands. Earlier this year both Hewlett Packard and Canon enabled their customers to cast away their printer cables, so long as they own iPhones. The Apple device comes equipped with a sixth sense, meaning that it’s capable of automatically identifying printers in your network. It does this with WiFi. Yet persons seeking this printing freedom ought beware: according to a December 14th 2009 post by Ragu Magapann at TheStandard.com, the quality of images produced on the iPhone is mediocre.

Wireless Printing is for you!

How does wireless printing work? Will it work for me? Can I set it up myself?

Wireless printing sounds like a perfect solution for laptop users, families with multiple computers and anyone frustrated with seeing those ghastly cords everywhere.

But can you set it up? Don’t be intimidated, you can setup a wireless printer in no time!

Wi Fi: Wireless networks are becoming increasingly popular in businesses and in the home. The majority of these networks use WiFi.



The Epson WorkForce 600 Wireless All-in-one Printer, shown above, allows you to print via WiFi. In fact, there are several printers on the market that have WiFi transceivers built into them. Simply install the printer to the network so that any computer on your network can locate the printer. Once the printer and computer are both connected to your network, you can send print jobs to the printer. This is very convenient for offices and homes with multiple computers - there's no need to buy a dedicated printer for each machine if everyone can access the same one.

How: The easiest option is to connect the printer to one computer, then allow additional computers access to the network. Alternatively, you can purchase a separate wireless print server device.

Attaching the printer to a stationary computer:

From the Control Panel of the computer connected to the printer, go to Printers and Right click on the target printer then select Properties.
Select the Sharing tab. Select “Share this printer”.

From the Control Panel of any additional computers, go to My Network Places, double click the computer connected to the printer, then double click on the printer which will guide you through setup.

If you are tired of tripping over cables, having your laptop tethered to one location, or not having access to a printer, then you might want to look into wireless printing.

How to save money, and still enjoy life in 2009

29. May 2009 08:34 by Danielle Bernhard in clickinks, print photos, savings, coupons, epson printer, economy  //  Tags:   //   Comments (0)
There is so much talk these days about the restrictive economy. I, like many others, am always looking for ways to save money without missing out on the things I enjoy.

One of the things I most enjoy is my child. I am constantly taking photos of my child, friends and extended family! I also enjoy all those professional photos taken at school, sports and theme parks. Now, instead of purchasing high priced packages throughout the year, I can print an unlimited number of photos for a drastically lower price using my Epson Stylus Photo printer. My replacement ink cartridge is only $6.95 at clickinks.com, less than the purchase price of one printed photo!

In this economy I try not to pay retail whenever possible. Not only do I save money by purchasing "compatible" ink cartridges for my printer, I also am constantly on the look out for coupons. Whether I am going to a restaurant, purchasing from my favorite on-line T-shirt store or buying groceries I am always looking for coupons on-line first! I can print coupons for the local movie theater, restaurant, boutique or my groceries before heading out, and save significantly in this hard pressed economy! So, save on ink & then you can afford to print those coupons and continue on the money saving path!
