Default Third party inks

Hey all I have 4 Epson F2000
And I am curious if using outside ink like image armor will violate my warranty with Epson?

Why would you want too? Didn't you pay a lot of money for that brand new F2000?

Yes I have,

A buddy had started using another ink with his printer and had some interesting results. I was tempted to try it to but didn't want to screw myself down the road

I just started using the Epson, and while the ink is expensive, I cannot say that another ink is going to be better than theirs, at least for their machine. I have been turning out some really stunning prints and I have never gotten closer to a perfect orange than I have with the Epson inks.

DO I wish they were cheaper, or maybe cured a little faster, or had a softer hand? Sure, but people buy shirts for what they look like not the hassle you went through, and the customers you want will understand that you have to pay a little more for quality.

Plus, why run the risk of voiding your warranty?

I'd also point out that the inks for the F2000 are a lower viscosity and I don't believe anyone has tackled that. Putting any ink in the system won't necessarily work. My guess is, anywhere the ink touches would be voided under the warranty.
