'Continuous Ink' system.



One of my fellow 'crafters' has bought herself a continuous ink system for her Epson but has, so far, not managed to connect it up. The instructions are not too clear, and she is no techy. Has anyone here had experience of this sort of ink supply?

It was quite inexpensive to buy, and it works out a lot cheaper than buying cartridges every other week. Crafters use loads of ink !

My own printer is a Canon and, although there is a continuous system available for it, I have not been tempted to buy it as it only uses 'compatible' inks, not Canon originals.


This is what the system looks like - for those who haven't seen one:-


+ Incredible savings compared to the cost of cartridges!
+ Pre-filled with the equivalent of over 10 sets of ink cartridges!
+ No more cartridges to buy ever again!
+ Never run out of ink at that inconvenient moment!
+ Ideal for home, office, schools and colleges
+ 90 days warranty on system
+ Stunning quality ink supplied in 100ml refill bottle
+ Most Epson printer models available
+ Also available for selected Canon and HP printers
+ Sponge free cartridges with SMART chips

It's an interesting concept. With printers using 6 or 7 separate inks, changing them can become full-time job:o
One day the printer manufacturers might make one of their own;)

I am aware of continuous ink systems. I've used re-inks for some time with no trouble. As my printing needs are minimal, these are not practical for me, but, if you do have the requirement, I've not heard anything against them.
