If you use a inkjet printer, I am sure you will greatly appreciate this post, as it probably saves me hundreds of dollars a year (I print a lot of items with my inkjet).
As you may know, the inkjet printer is the most inexpensive option available but the ink cartridges do not last long and are expensive. It is just a pricing strategy those companies use to make a profit off their low cost printers. Many of us that etch, use the photoresist stenciling process which requires a black and white artwork printout for each new design. Since many people use the inkjet, it can be quite expensive, so here is a way to properly refill it inexpensively! Regardless if you use the photoresist process, this tip may still help you if you have an inkjet printer.
A while back, I added a tip in the Glass Etching Secrets ebook to save money by refilling your inkjet printer cartridge with this inexpensive but quality ink on Amazon here. It was the lowest priced ink I found that gives you a decent amount of ink that will last years. But this seemed to provide unreliable results.
As explained in the video, I later found that using this ink with a certain technique and tool provided in a kit has effectively made it possible to refill inkjet printers. And it works just as good as a new cartridge! I’ve been using the same cartridge now for about a year and have printed out over 2,000 pages.
Below with the links to the kit. Be sure to find a kit for your printer model.
