Re: aftermarket cartridges



Archival Inks are an issue all their own. HP, Epson, Lexmark, and all the
others are after the volume markets. Requests for Archival Ink are very
limited. Discussions of this sort is certainly on the right track. The
quality of all the inks of today in no way compares to the output of the
Canon BJ150 of a few years ago.

Color stability from Color Ink Jet Printers has come a long way toward being
of Archival quality. Stability of the image itself is a bit more difficult
to provide in a production printer.

Seeing what we are able to produce today is amazing and only suggests that
these issues will be addressed in due time. Keep On Asking For The Archival
Quality.
