Permajet paper and ink to replace Epson paper and ink?

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by nobody nowhere, Aug 30, 2003.

  1. There is a UK company
    which sells paper that can be used with an Epson 1280/1290 (no, I am
    connected to them in any way). I have tried their papers, which are at
    least as good as Epson paper, if not better (to me they seem better than
    Epson, I am using an Epson 1290). But, the Permajet paper might not be
    significantly cheaper than the Epson papers, although I have to wait
    until Monday, when they are open, to find out more.

    They also sell a so-called Permaflow cartridge device, which can be used
    with an Epson 1280/90: it consists of a chipped cartridge, and plastic
    tubes coming out of it and going into ink bottles. One then replaces the
    ink as it runs out. Again, I have no idea what this costs, but the
    company says that it is vastly cheaper than using Epson original
    cartridges, with no loss in quality, but I have not tried this device
    myself. If you are like me, and do mostly 19 x 13, you can imagine that
    anything which can save on ink is more than welcome. Has anybody had
    any direct experience of the Permajet papers and Permaflow ink device
    and ink?

    There are several companies making CFS and CIS ink
    systems for Epson (and Canon) printers, including some
    of the "chipped" Epsons as well. Try
    and for starters.

    No question about it, the cost of printing goes way down
    when you use one of these.

    I'm currently using a WeInk CFS on a Canon 9000, with
    inks from
