Review: PIXMA E560 [with FREE printables links]

As a homeschooling mum, I always have to rely on our trusty home printer (Canon Pixma MG5570 Photo Printer, it's an awesome printer that prints brilliant photos!)  to create home learning materials, but alas, the ink always run out SUPER FAST, which means it's very costly to print things at home. 

I was happy when I was loaned a unit of Canon Pixma E560 for review purposes! I understand that this printer has very high ink efficiency and was very excited to put it to test by printing the many many items which I had saved in a folder all over the years! 

What I like about the Canon Pixma E560 Printer

High Ink Efficiency
The main feature of this printer is its high ink efficiency! I actually put the loaned printer to test and used up 1.5 reams of paper before the ink ran out! I printed a mix of black and colored print-outs and some are double sided on the brand new set of ink cartridges! And there are only two cartridges to buy so no need to be afraid of buying the wrong inks to top up!

Cheap Ink Cost
Pricing Info from Canon Website
The part that I love the most? The inks are really very affordable! To change the whole set (Black and Colored inks) the total price is only S$44 compared to what I am paying for my own Canon individual ink tanks printer!

Wifi Capability
The printer has wifi capability, so I can print from all my wireless devices from anywhere in the house!

Auto 2-sided Printing
I also like its auto 2-sided printing capability! I really save a lot of time and paper by printing 2-sided documents!

Other Features of the Canon Pixma E560 include:

  • Print, Scan, Copy
  • ISO Standard print speed (A4): up to 5.7ipm (colour) / 9.9ipm (mono)
  • Photo Speed (4 x 6"): 44sec (borderless)


If you are keen to know, the Canon Pixma E560 printer is currently retailing at S$179.00

And only at Popular Bookstore, when you purchase the printer you also get to redeem a FREE Lock & Lock Water Bottle worth S$11.50 and a Black Ink Cartridge worth S$20!! 


And now, let me proudly shared some great links of the printables that I had printed! (Can you imagine, below is only like half of what i printed using the same ink set on the printer!)  I was busy printing, laminating and cutting for a long time now! Happy printing away! Links on caption below!

    1. Hi Evelyn, the laminator that i am using is from GBC. i bought it during promotion years ago so it wasn't too expensive. You can look out for the promotions at Popular book stores or Giant hypermart! :) It usually also comes with free laminating pouches
