Epson Photo R1800
Refillable cartridge kits for the Epson Photo R1800. Kits are offered with two different ink configurations. Firstly, we supply a kit that includes a large bottle of our special Absolute Black ink for making screen separations. This kit is designed for ‘all black’ printing where every cartridge is filled with black ink – this is the most popular ink set up where a printer is dedicated to screen separation printing and images can be printed directly from Illustrator or Photoshop using the standard Epson driver software. Secondly is a kit that includes a bottle of Absolute Black along with a bottle of Absolute Clear. This kit is for people who have RIP software that can control which ink channels are used for printing - Absolute Black is installed in the active printing cartridges and Absolute Clear is installed in the non-active cartridges.
Using bulk ink and refillable cartridges is extremely cost effective and saves over 70% compared to original cartridges.
Note: This printer model normally runs pigment inks which will need cleaning out before installing Absolute Black inks for the first time. A 4 oz bottle of our Dead Head cleaning fluid is included with the kit for this purpose. The cleaning fluid is filled into all cartridges and is run through the print heads to flush out the current inks. The cartridges are then removed, drained of cleaning fluid, and refilled with ink ready for printing. If a customer wants to have a separate set of cartridges just for cleaning, then these can be found under our ‘Spare parts’ category.
