BOTH of my printers died away within the last month or two. Not long before I realized that they were dying, I’d stocked up on ink cartridges for both of them.Sob I now have almost THREE DOZEN BRAND NEW, NEVER UNWRAPPED INK CARTRIDGES that don’t fit my new printer. 

I’ll be happy to give them away to whoever has a printer that they fit…..and can make the 40 minute trip out here to Annapolis to pick them up.
