My latest SMALL printer is the Epson Artisan 810 printer, which uses Claria ink... a dye based ink. No more bronzing or metamerism! The glossy prints have an even gloss and truly look like regular photo prints from your local pro camera store!... some small drug store labs still give you prints with uneven gloss... or semi-gloss. Also, Claria ink adds two more colors, Light Magenta and Light Cyan which means that you get a potentially wider color gamut (depending on your color settings) than you do with the old Durabrite 4-color ink system.
The problems with pigment based inks have been pretty much eliminated, due to micro encapsulation of the ink droplets in the best pigment based inks.Read more ›

I highly recommend the Epson Photo papers as they are designed for these Epson inks and Espon printers specifically. I tested the "Epson Premium Photo Paper Glossy" and "Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy" and recommend both. Looking at the same image side by side on the two papers the differences are almost imperceptible. The detail and color are identical under the most careful scrutiny. A few differences emerge under very careful observation:
* The Ultra Premium Paper is slightly heavier paper, this adds to its stiffness. When picking up a 4x6" photo from the 4" edge there is about half as much bend vs the Premium Paper.
* The Ultra Premium Paper has an ISO brightness of 96, versus 92 for the Premium Paper. This makes no difference in color rich areas of photos but in light highlights if you stare long enough you can convince yourself they are brighter in the Ultra Premium. Telling the difference in brightness requires good light, identical photos side by side, and far too much scrutiny.
* The Premium costs about 12.7 cents per 4x6 sheet in packs of 100
* The Ultra Premium costs about 22.Read more ›
On the day I was leaving for the holidays in December that ink was drained and I loaded the second ink. It printed 2 pages and then the printer (an Epson Artisan 835) would not recognize the cartridge. I then tried the third ink cartridge and the printer would not recognize it at all. In desperation I called Epson. After a long hold time I spoke with their tech support who walked me through some troubleshooting and then said if both cartridges were genuine Epson product then the printer was broken (Epson programs its printers to print XXX number of pages and then to stop working completely so there are not always signs of anything amiss prior to final failure). As I believed the ink to be genuine Epson cartridges I thought that was the end of the printer.
When I returned from the holiday I decided to try purchasing ink from a store before completely abandoning the Epson. I slotted the new ink into the printer and it has worked beautifully since then.
I understand the need for re-manufactured inks and the reason they exist. But they need to be marked accordingly by the seller (in this case Ink Shopi). We already knew from previous experience that the re-manufactured cartridges did not work with this particular printer and that they can cause long-term problems so we avoid them (and they have always been clearly marked as remanufactured).Read more ›
