Hi Ms Cloee.

Ask ko lang what you mean by continuous ink. Do you mean ink refilling? scratch

Hindi naman illegal ang paggamit ng continuous ink. Baka lang meron effect sa warranty ng printer. Kung tapos na ang warranty period, ok lang.

Sa Print Philippines Exhibit last week, meron mga nag exhibit na continuous ink supplier.

Pumunta kayo sa Print & Label exhibition on Oct 7 - 10 sa MOA SMX Convention Center. Siguradong meron mga booth ng ink supplier doon. Puede ho kayo makakuha ng information sa kanila.

Good Luck sa balak ninyong negosyo!

baka magkaroon ka rin ng quality issue. At balikan ka pag nag fade kaagad. be careful about what market you want to venture. Good luck

I agree na baka magkaroon ng quality problems. Original ka na lang para walang sakit ng ulo. Pero kung gusto mong malaman ipa-test mo muna sa marunong mag analyze ng color.

Pwede niyong gamitan ng Ugra/Fogra Media Wedge CMYK v3, para ma-test niyo ang color accuracy, consistency, and also color stability (lightfastness).



Sukatin niyo yung same wedge after several minutes, days, weeks, or if you're lucky....even months. Pag stable naman ang color deviation ng CMYK (within delta H 2.5) and also yung CMY gray balance (within delta H 1.5)...pwede mong gamitin ito. But make sure i-test mo iba't ibang combination ng papel din.

Madaming pwedeng tumulong sayo diyan...for a fee I suppose. Kontakin mo si CIECAM o kaya si shutter.

Good luck.

Eto na naman ako, hehehe.

I don't think she is after with any industry standard.

Ayus lang gumamit ng continuous ink (third party ink) sa ganyang klaseng business. I suggest you buy an Epson, mas madaling i-convert ang mga desktop printer nila. Think it this way:

1. Pa-quote ka ng presyo ng original Epson inks
2. Pa-quote ka ng presyo ng printer. ( you will be surprise na halos mas mahal pa ang Epson inks kaysa sa printer na kailangan mo.)
3. Pa-quote ka ng continuous inks.

Then decide. Just my 2 cents.

Lex, I'm not talking about standards here but rather suggesting how one could know if the color quality of their preferred inks can be relied on for business purposes. Kahit di ka ISO kung stable naman ang colors mo....pwede nang gamitin yun sa ibang trabaho. As Billy has correctly stated that one might end up having quality issues later on....lalo na pag mabilis mag fade ang ibang kulay...or lahat ng kulay.

Larry,

Agree. But the way I understand Ms. mscloee business venture is like my neighbor's computer shop.

My suggestion for mscloee is to do some research of the same businesses in Manila.

I tried the same before, it's hard to compete with a digital photo lab, so I ended sending job to a digital photo lab for artistic/quality works, and used my Epson for "mga pa-cute" works and spray it with some "etcheng-etcheng" to make the color last longer. Anyway those "pa-cute pics" are put in mini frames so it will last, and the good thing is to explain to the clients that it's going to fade for its price. BTW, the choice of paper will also do the trick. And I still have in Manila my photo prints using another brand of inks (not continuous) from my Epson 810. And the last time I checked, my Epson still works, hehehe.
