I have an Epson Stylus C88+ Has anyone used refill kits for their image printers??
I know I never liked them for my regular printers. But considering it.
So do they work well?
Can anyone who HAS used them tell me what they think?
Comparing the new cartrige as opposed to a refilled? any help would be appreciated.
I think I just printed the last picture I can with out a more ink.
I have just been buying the new cartrige each time but its getting pricy.

I have the cannon ip3500 and I used to buy the cartridge every time but I decided to try the refill and OMG you save a lot of money. I highly recommend you to refill them.

thank you. So you feel the quality is the same then?
And is it easy to do? No big mess?

Where do you buy yours from?

No, there's no mess the kit comes with neddles that you attach to the bottled and it is sooo easy to refill the cartridge. And I don't remember if I bought it at kopykake.com or icingimages.com I buy in both sites. I checked and I got them from kopykake this bottles are 2 oz each one and I printed about 30 images already and I still have half of the ink in the bottles I use rice paper because I run out of the sugar ones.

If you are going to refill for an epson, I would suggest edible supply. www.ediblesupply.com those refills are the easiest...outside of my own, but I dont sell the C series Epson!

I have an epson and use the refill ink all the time. It's such a $$ saver.

Actually, I just found out my refills will work, but I highly suggest you start with new cartridges as they are different then the ones you currently have.

That's good news. I just got new spongless cartridges so I'll check out your ink.

Tiggy, you use a Epson..I forgot. You will have to look under the Epson printer. Even though it doesnt list your printer, you can purchase the refill, but not the cartridges.

Debbie, what size are the bottles of ink? I have a steamer like the one you offer, can I use it with your printhead cleaner? What exactly do I clean with it?
