I use Monaco 2.0 which sells for $300, but got it for $200. I use Media Street Plug N Play dye inks with Epson's Matte, Semi Gloss, Luster, and Photo Paper. I'm not too hot on the PGPP. It builds very good color profiles on each of the above, but am not sure how it is going to do on B&W profiles because I haven't got to them yet. Building a B&W profile without a Spectro is harder, but I know of people on this list that do have a Spectro and they do build them for others for a very reasonable fee. I had the opportunity to work with elderly people for several years and got to see them show off their old pictures as highly prized possessions. It is good to see you're helping them.
