  • ink cost per printout

    By kathleen crimm (kathleen) on Thursday, July 19, 2001 - 02:02 pm:

    can any one tell me how to figure ink cost per print? is there a rule of thumb? I have an epson stylus 740, use epson ink. the #'s, (dpi?) are 1440 and 720. each cartridge is about $20 @ sams, best price i know. if i knew how to figure the cost for a fully printed glossy 8.5/11 page, i could guesstimate from there, but i don't.

    also, does anyone else use an epson printer and have you ever tried non-epson ink refill?

    been trolling around the last hour in vain for this info, maybe some of you know? as sesame street's guy smiley used to say "call in the royal smart person". thanks!

    Hi Kathleen,

    If you don't get your answer here, you can try the Epson Inkjet mailing list. There is a lot of knowledge on there. I remember seeing something about that a year or two ago. You can also get good info on non-Epson inks there. I bought an Inkube high resolution refill kit about a year ago, but after reading some posts about non-Epson inks, I am a little reluctant to use it. That doesn't mean that all refill kits are no good - only that I've seen a few posts that were not favorable of certain inks. I've been told that if you use non-Epson inks, you lose your warranty.

    You're welcome Kathleen. I should have given you the link. Here it is, along with info on a few other lists:
