This answer also holds true with the other printers that use the Epson 3000 as their printhead for large format printers :-) Have a colorful day Judy Mile High Engineering Supply, your inkjet specialists 1-800-666-6602 Accuplot.com ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Date: Tue, 24 Aug 1999 08:46:28 +0000 From: allen takichi maertz <email@example.com> Subject: Why don't Epson produce their own archival inks? The word I have is that they "do" as the actual ink is manufactured by one of the very few companies that really make ink from scratch. The Roland Pigmented Inkset is an epson product, licensed from epson to Roland (epson 3000 heads) with an exclusive agreement for Roland on use. I.e. Epson contracts not to use that pigmented inkset in their machines. Side buzz is that epson america could separetly source/develope an alternative pigmented inkset but I wouldn't hold my breath on that one. My conclusion is that Roland is staying with the pigmented strategy and epson is sticking to the dye based strategy. Takichi - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
