Our All Black refillable cartridge kit combined with the Canon Pixma iX6820 is the perfect way to print screen separation films up to 13” wide. The Pixma iX6820 is a high quality but low purchase cost device that is simple to use and easy to maintain, and produces great quality screen separations when set up with our Absolute Black inks.
The refillable cartridge kit for the Pixma iX6820 comes with two complete sets of refillable cartridges so that you always have a spare set of cartridges ready to use. The cartridges have auto reset ink level monitoring chips that reset to full each time a cartridge is refilled with ink. Refilling of the cartridges is simple and the kit includes an 8 oz bottle of i2i Absolute Black ink for Canon ink – enough ink to refill 20 cartridges. The kit comes with full instructions on how to set up and run the printer.
How do I set up and use the printer for screen separation printing?
Firstly, install Absolute Black ink in every cartridge. The inks can be installed on a new printer or an existing machine that already been set up with color inks – simply run a three or four cleaning cycles to clear out the old inks. The standard Canon driver software can be used to run all black inks by setting the print mode to color, and then increasing the C, M, and Y levels in the advanced color settings to get the most dense print. The Pixma iX6820 is a four color device that features two black cartridges – one for color printing on gloss papers and one for color printing on matte papers. With our all black in set up, Absolute Black inks are installed in both black cartridges. Setting the print driver to print on luster media will use the regular black cartridges, or setting to print on matte papers will use the mate black cartridge. In this way, the ink in both black cartridges can be used for all black printing. See our instruction sheet in our support pages for more information.
Why use Canon printers for screen separation printing?
Until now, the printer brand of choice for screen separation applications has been Epson. However, recent Epson printer models suffer from a much shorter print head life compared to older machines. On average, print heads often fail within three years on new Epson models and the cost of head replacement can run to more than the cost of the original machine. With Canon printers, the print head is user replaceable at a fraction of this cost and takes less than five minutes – replacement print heads simply clip into place. The latest Canon models suitable for screen positive printing have a comparable print resolution and speed, and a lower purchase price.
