For about 2 years I was buying ink from a supplier to refill my cartridges. This was perfectly adequate printing for print-editing my work, and was dead cheap. I probably spent in 6 months what I spent on my quality cartridges in 2-4 weeks. What's more, I like printing stuff to read on paper, as preferable to reading on the screen...so I printed a lot without feeling constrined by cost issues.

Also the ink was delivered to my home, all I had to do was email the guy, and he came round with a supply of colours in bottles for me, along with horse syringes (!) to refill the cartdriges.

UNFORTUNATELY, he disappeared off the map about 6 months ago, and I'm missing him terribly!

Does anybody know of anybody supplying ink in a similar format in the Barcelona area?

Switch to a laser printer Mar 16, 2005

For example, buying a Lexmark E232 for just approx. 190 Euros.
Or chose Samsung and take it for approx. 130 Euros.

You will print cheaper than with the cheapest ink cartridge.
It is really so. A good laser printer delivers printouts for not much more than a cent per page.

Regards
Jerzy

BTW
For all living in Germany - Lexmark offers 50% off if you buy a Lexmark E232 and fill out a very simple questionaire. More details here.

Cheaper and faster!
Even colour laser printers are now not so expensive.

I got mine in the States Mar 17, 2005

I brought back my do-it-yourself refills from the U.S. The company that makes the kit is I.M.S. (Interactive Media Sales). I just ran out and am looking for a place to get a couple of bottles of ink in Valencia. I've come up with one in Madrid called Ahorra en Tinta, S.L.
Tel: 911 459 010
Fax: 916 965 071

I haven't made an order yet but a 1 liter bottle costs about 65 puerros.

See ya!

Edward
