Andy, >PPS. The main problem at the moment is packaging: >Q: do you think that the current design it ok or do to have any suggestions. It would be nice if Somerset packaged their ink-jet papers (Somerset Velvet and Somerset Enhanced) in a rigid envelope/box like Epson and Agfa in quantities such as 25, 50 and 100 sheets. And I would appreciate knowing who their French distributor is if they have one (I live in Paris). I ordered some A4 and A3 size Somerset Enhanced from a retailer/mailorder company in UK and though it was fairly well packaged (corregated cardboard on both sides of the paper which was just in transparent envelopes, the whole surrounded by brown packing paper) the local mailman managed to mangle the A3 paper by stuffing it into my mailbox which bent the corner of the the whole A3 pack of paper. If it had been in a box that wouldn't have happened, though it is the mailman's fault for being too lazy to simply ring the bell. >All every one seems to talk about is Piezography inks and CIC systems, >firstly I would like to know what they are, and what are the benefits. Also >I would like to know if they are available in England. CIS means Continuous Ink system and it is an ingenious method for using 3rd party bulk inks in certain Epson printers. Their website is >http://www.nomorecarts.com< and the system is fully explained and illustrated there. Unfortunately I don't believe they have a European distributor yet, alas. I bought their CIS for use with PiezographyBW in an Epson 1160 and shall probably buy another for my Epson 1200 for use with archival colour inks. Jon Cone's Piezography BW is a combination of carbon-based monochrome pigment inkset (greys and black) - available both as carts and in bulk form, a special driver for Epson printers which is used as a Photoshop plug-in and a series of profiles for printing these inks on a lot of different papers. You can find all the relevant info at >http://www.inkjetmall.com< website under Piezography BW. Cheers Nina - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
