What printer do you use for your covers?

#1 by Rocky , Tue Mar 01, 2016 2:07 pm

As the title suggests....... what printer do you have?

'Back in the day' when I used to do alot of cover printing, I had an Epson R300 and used to print on the discs also. Was a great printer which did a fantastic job for me for a good 8 years or so!



Now I have an Epson XP-305. I use this for general things like printing out confirmations of orders or hotel bookings, directions etc.... . I very rarely print covers now.


So........ What printer do you have, and how do you rate it??

Have been using a all in one Epson xp 610 for the past 2 years, no problems in the time I have owned. Use compatability cartidges about 15 x XL carts for about a tenner which last forever printing at high settings on 200GSM glossy paper plus Verbatim discs.
Scanner is pretty good too & the wi-fi printing comes in handy for other family members.

Have also printed many inkjet waterslide decals & vinyl stickers to a decent quality.

Hi. I use an Epson R360. Had it for quite a while now. Like Whiskyboy I use A CISS Ink System and I would probably guess this is about the best extra I have ever bought for my PC system . About 18 months ago I also bypassed the tube putting the spare ink from cleaning heads etc on to the felt pads in the PC and put a tube to an outside jar. That will save me from ever having to pay out to Epson for the clocking of the printer. It's amazing just how much ink is lost during these cleaning processes but because of the CISS system ink costs are very very little. Regards to all, BrianB.

Hi
I have been using an Epson T50 for 3 years I have had to drain the waste ink pad and reset the counters 4 times.
It recently died, & it was replaced with another Epson T50 that i bought at the same time. Print quality is great.
Kind Regards
MrPj

I have a old Canon ink printer (5350) and im thinking of buying a new one.
Is there a huge difference in how much ink a printer uses and cost of buying ink catridges?
In short....anyone recommends a special type of printer ?
Have had various Canon ones over the years so not familiar with anything else :/

I myself use the Cannon MX922 for covers and the Epson XP960 for labels, both print very well, can't go wrong with either one....
