    I saw ink 4 u at the Sign Show this weekend and they say they can refill the used Mimaki ink cartridges, out a new chip on them and you can put them right into the printer without having to blow the lines.

    Anyone using these inks? and are they as good as OEM?

    My machine is now 6+ years old and if I can save 35% or so on ink, I say why not.

    gabagoo, I went to their website and this is what I found http://www.ink4u.ca/en/Third-Party-Inks/Third-Party-Inks.aspx As you know, 3rd party plug-n-play inks have their supporters and dissuaders on this forum. IMHO, since the printer is 6+ years old AND you have been relatively problem free, why change what's working for you? On the other hand, IF you are printing 5-7 hours a day, 5 days a week, you should look into a BULK INK/CISS system. Finally, work with a dealer with whom you are confident

    they got their claws into you Barry!

    I don't think it's worth the potential headaches, we don't go through enough ink for it to be a factor

    Remember what Gerber dealers were saying when Duracoat first came out? I do?

    I am willing to give these inks a try, seeing as I have enough colour issues as it is, whats one more going to do lol

    Use compatible plug-play 440ml cartridge ink, will be safety and save more than 35%.
