The cost saving bulk ink solution that’s a truly green option!
The new Ink2image Duo bulk ink systems for Epson desk top printer models provide a simple and effective way of using bulk ink, and enjoying substantial cost savings compared to disposable cartridges. The system consists of refillable ink tanks that clip into the printer’s print head just like regular cartridges. The system is extremely cost effective while reducing the waste impact on the environment through substantially less plastic being used compared to throwing away cartridges.
The Duo systems are supplied in kits that include two ink tanks per color along with one 4oz bottle of bulk ink per color. By using the included syringes, the ink tanks are filled from the bulk ink bottles. The Duo tanks are then installed into the printer in the same way as regular cartridges. When the ink in the tank has been used up, it is simply replaced by another tank – an operation that takes less than ten seconds – and you continue printing. The depleted tank can then be refilled at leisure. Because the Duo system comes with two tanks per color, you always have one tank ready and waiting to slip into your printer – no need to stop printing and refill every time a tank is used up. The Duo tanks can be refilled many times and can be purchased separately. The Duo tanks are fitted with auto reset ink monitor chips that work in conjunction with the ink level monitor software on the host computer. Ink levels are shown decreasing as you print and, when the monitor warns that a color is about to run out, you simply replace the empty Duo tank with a full one, and the ink level shows full again – it couldn't be simpler.
The Duo system offers significant cost savings of approximately 60% - 70% dependent on the printer model used. For example, a Duo kit with ink for the Epson Photo R2880 cost $ 265.00.00 and includes the equivalent ink as 64 original cartridges, which cost $ 895.00, an immediate saving of $ 630.00. On-going savings are even higher with replacement 4 oz bottles of Cave Paint Elite Enhanced pigment ink costing $ 27.50 each and containing the same amount of ink as over 8 original cartridges. The effective cost per cartridge using the Duo system is $ 3.44 per cartridge.
Duo kits are available for most current Epson desk top photo printers. All Duo kits include a set of 4 oz bottles of Cave Paint or i2i Absolute Match inks, and all inks are closely color matched to the original inks so they can be used with original profiles and color settings. For some models, a choice of ink type is offered depending on application requirements. For instance, Duo kits for the Epson Artisan 1430 and Photo 1400 are available with either the i2i Absolute Match E2 standard dye inks, or with the Fotonic XG V2 archival dye inks for more fade resistant printing.

The Duo system is truly a green option for inkjet printing and has dramatically less impact on the environment when compared to normal throw away cartridges. Not only does Duo use over 60% less plastic during manufacture when compared to normal cartridges (it takes around three quarts of oil to make one cartridge), but also the use of the system significantly reduces the number of cartridges to be disposed of. It is currently estimated that approx. 400 million inkjet cartridges per year end up in land fill sites in the USA alone. A Duo system user who refilled their ink tanks ten times would reduce the amount of plastic to be thrown away by 85% when compared to disposable cartridges.
THE DUO SYSTEM ALSO HELPS PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT
