How to recognise genuine inks?
Look for the hologram. A unique colour-changing Canon hologram is included on the packaging of all genuine Canon ink cartridges. The hologram appears as iridescent gold when viewed from the front, but dark iridescent green when tilted horizontally.
Paper ink packaging
Fake holograms do not change colour, or change only slightly, when viewed from different angles. They are often displayed on packaging in the wrong colour, size or in an untidy way and may also appear damaged or blurred.
Plastic ink packaging
European plastic type inkjet packaging or blister multipacks may not include the unique hologram. So look out for Canon logos that are blurred or in the wrong colour, font or size to identify counterfeit products. The packaging may also include spelling errors or look like it has been resealed, reused or tampered with.
