Unfortunately, the Trio bulk ink system was discontinued in 2015 due to our vendor
withdrawing from the inkjet market. We have introduced the
Duo refill kits as an alternative.
Customers with Trio systems who need replacement parts should contact us as we do have
some spare components still in stock.
The new Ink2image Trio bulk ink system for Epson desk top printer models represents a break
through in bulk ink technology. The unique system consists of refillable ink tanks that clip into
sleeve adapters that fit in a printer’s print head.  The system is extremely cost effective while, at
the same time, reducing the waste impact on the environment through substantially less plastic
being used compared to normal throw away cartridges.

The Trio system is supplied in kits that include one sleeve adapter, three tanks, and one 4oz
bottle of bulk ink per color. By using the included syringes, the ink tanks are filled from bulk ink
bottles. A Trio tank is then slipped into a sleeve adapter and placed into the printer. 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 Trio system comes with three tanks per color, you always have two
tanks ready and waiting to slip into your printer – no need to stop printing and refill every time a
tank is used up. The Trio tanks can be refilled many times and can be purchased separately.
The Trio sleeve adapters 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 Trio tank with a full one, and the ink level shows full again – it couldn't be simpler.
The Trio system offers significant cost savings of approximately 60% - 70% dependent on the printer model used. For
example, a Trio kit with ink for the Epson Photo R2880 cost $ 360.00 and includes the equivalent ink as 75 original
cartridges or $ 975.00 worth,
an immediate saving of $ 615.00. 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 Trio system is $ 3.44 per cartridge.

Trio systems are available for all current Epson desk top printers, including the multi-function or all-in-one models that
have been traditionally difficult to install with bulk ink feed devices. Now any user of desk top printers can benefit from the
cost savings of using Ink2image bulk inks. All Trio 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, Trio kits
for models that use the original Epson Claria inks are available with either the
i2i Absolute Match E2 standard dye inks, or
with the
Fotonic XG archival dye inks for more fade resistant printing. The Trio kits for the Epson Photo R1900 also have
the option of coming with the
color matched i2i Absolute E9 pigment inks, or with the wider color gamut Cave Paint R19
pigment inks for even better color than the original inks.

An interesting option for Epson Photo 1400 & Artisan 1430 owners is to use the Trio system in
conjunction with our
Cave Paint R24 pigment inks, and to effectively turn this low cost 13" wide
machine into a true archival pigment printer that would normally cost 2-3 times as much. As with
all photo quality pigment ink sets, Cave Paint R24 has the option of two black ink versions –
Photo Black for use high density, non-bronzing prints on luster and gloss media, and Matte
Black for the deepest blacks on matte and fine art papers. Trio starter kits are available that
include either or both of the black ink versions. With the Trio system, swapping from one black
to another is very simple – just remove the tank of one black, slip in a filled tank of the new
black, perform a quick cleaning cycle, and you are ready to print. Ink2image also provides free
ICC color profiles for most common media types to ensure that you get color accurate prints.
USE THE TRIO TO TURN THE EPSON PHOTO 1400 & ARTISAN INTO TRUE PIGMENT PRINTERS
The Trio 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 Trio 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 Trio 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 TRIO SYSTEM ALSO HELPS PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT
