Been very happy with Permajet system for 2 Epson printers for over 2 years

Don't know if they have a USA distributor.  Quite a fiddle to set up but
then great to run, and they do matching papers and profiles.  Sometimes have
to suck through to clear bubbles if I have been on holiday and not used it a
while.  Have some nice A3 prints hanging up at home made with it and M8.

Best wishes, Matthew

I am getting tired of having at least 1 of my 8 inks on the verge of empty 
in my Epson R1800.  I can never print a large print for fear I will run out 
of one of the colors.  I have looked into CIS once before but was not 
satisfied.  But I am wanting to look again.  I see many cheap brands 
advertised and for sale in places like the E auction site, but am afraid of 
them for many reasons, mostly because I am not sure their ink will always be

available and I would need to make a new profile with each bottle.  Also, 
cheap may mean clogging more often.

I have seen some more expensive ones, like Lyson, but that is almost too 
much money in the short run.  I have their sample prints and they look 
great.  Also, I would assume they will be around for a while and have a very

consistent ink source.  No sure if there is a USA distributor, or if I need 
to go through the UK Marrutt company.

Does anybody have any recommendations on companies that have good stuff at a

reasonable price.  Dependable and easy setup?  Easy maintenance?
