Printer ink might be a hodgepodge: while this HP 63 ink 2-cartridge bundle was planned to send in three days time, this Brother TN660 toner cartridge was booked to transport on April 21. The entirety of the printer paper we tapped on ships on April 21, as well.

Indeed, even Amazon’s own AmazonBasics gear has been influenced, as this HDMI-link three-pack will transport to Prime clients as late as May 15, when it’s back in stock on April 7.
