Swopping cartridges of the same type of ink is not a problem, but swopping types of ink in not a very practical thing with the 3000. There are large reservoirs of ink in the head, which means to change ink types means to purge enough ink for 60 or 80, 8x10 prints with each swop, and with some combinations use cleaning carts in between as well. This can add up fast with the cost of archival carts, and means that using an ink set capable of doing broad gamut prints, similar to the Epson inks, but with archival fade resistance, would be a better solution. When I get through testing the Fotonics I'll let you know if they fit the bill. I'll leave the archival testing to the specialists, I just intend to test the gamut, print quality, and profilability of the inks. C.
