REFILLABLE CARTRIDGE KITS FOR THE EPSON PRO 3800 & 3880
  • Save over 70% compared to normal cartridges.
  • As simple to use as normal cartridges.
  • Uses the latest color matched Cave Paint inks.
  • Environmentally friendly.
  • No machine modification required.
Users of the Epson Pro 3800 and 3880 can now enjoy the performance
and cost savings benefits of running the award winning Cave Paint
pigment inks by using the new refillable cartridge systems. Savings from
using the Cave Paint inks run in excess of 70% compared to normal
cartridges.
The refillable cartridge kits for the Epson Pro 3800 and Pro 3880 consist of a set of specially
developed refill cartridges with bridge chips, nine 8 oz bottles of color matched Cave Paint Elite
simply a matter of injecting ink through the cartridge fill hole using the included syringes. The
refillable cartridges require the use of the ink monitor chips from an original set of used Epson
cartridges in order for the ink monitoring firmware on the 3800 and 3880 to work correctly.
Removal of the chips from the original cartridges is also simple (full instructions included), and
these are held in place on the Ink2image cartridges by a novel, clip in ‘bridge’ chip design for
reliable operation. The bridge chips set the ink levels to full on the printer display, and auto
reset to full after each refill. The Ink2image cartridges can be refilled many times but will
eventually show signs of wear at the ink exit port seal. Replacement cartridges are available at
the low cost of $ 20.00 each when this occurs.

The Cave Paint Elite Enhanced pigment inks for the 3800 and 3880 are color matched to the
original Epson Ultrachrome K3 and K3 Vivid inks so existing color settings and profiles can be
used. The Elite Enhanced inks also feature the same archival life, low bronzing, and clog free
performance as the original inks.

The Kit for the Epson Pro 3880 is very similar to the 3800 kit, but is shipped with Vivid Magenta
and Vivid Light Magenta inks and refillable cartridges.

The refillable cartridges for the Epson Pro 3800 and 3880 will also work alongside original
cartridges to allow customers to use up their existing OEM cartridges. This means that a user
can change out cartridges one color at a time as their existing cartridges run empty. Because
of this, Ink2image now offers single refillable cartridges bundled with an 8 oz bottle of ink for
both the 3800 and 3880 (see prices below).   
TYPICAL COST SAVINGS
The cost savings from using the Ink2image refillable cartridge kit are quite significant. The kit ships with an 8 oz bottle of
each ink color and costs $ 575.00. An 8 oz bottle contains the same amount of ink as 3 original cartridges, so the kit has
the equivalent amount of ink as contained in 27 cartridges. With Epson cartridges for the Pro 3800 costing $ 59.95 each,
this means that the Ink2image refillable cartridge kit includes the same amount of ink as $ 1,618.65 worth of original
cartridges,
an immediate saving of $ 1,043.65. Ongoing savings are even higher with an 8 oz refill bottle of Cave Paint
Elite Enhanced ink costing $ 52.50 compared to $ 179.95 for 3 original cartridges,
a saving in excess of 70%.
The Ink2image refillable cartridge system is also a truly green option for inkjet printing and has dramatically less impact
on the environment when compared to normal throw away cartridges. Not only does the system 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 3800 or 3880 refillable cartridge
system user who refilled their cartridges ten times would reduce the amount of plastic to be thrown away by 85% when
compared to disposable cartridges.
The combination of the ink2image refillable cartridges and Elite Enhanced inks turns the Epson Pro 3800 and 3880 into
an easy to use, reliable, environmentally friendly, and cost effective printing workhorse.
