Last year, I bought a terrific printer, the EPSON SGYLUS COLOR 980... a dream to operate. Speedy, simple, inexpensive ($179!) and a wonderful way to duplicate and play around with digital photos at home. However, the dark side, of course, is the replacement cost of ink cartridges with genuine Epson products. Just recently, I paid $36.99 to replace my 3-color cartridge, and the black one is selling for almost as much!!! For a while I was buying generics on the on the web without problems and even flirted with the idea of doing my own refills. However, the 980 is one of the first, possibly the only STYLUS COLOR printers to use archival inks It also has the ability to produce extra small (micro?) dots at custom settings, which is the main reason I purchased it in the first place. I could really use some advice... Is there a source of high quality archival (pigmented?) inks that would replace the Epson cartridges and give similar print performance. Thanks in advance to all who will be kind enough to reply. - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short. Use accurate subject lines. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
