i got a few questions on ink

1. is the cart that comes with the 1280 dye or pigment
2. what is the best bulk ink system to use?and can i use it with magic mix ink? is getting one off of ebay a good idea? anything specific i should look for when buying one.
3. is there anything else i need on my purchase list?

i know these are a lot of questions,but i wanna make sure i know what im doing.purchasing all this equipment is a big investment for me.

Also get a teflon pad to protect your bottom platen on the press, and a few sheets of teflon also to protect the top platen and to protect your shirts too.

You can ask TLM Supply House if they have a bulk ink system for the 1280.

I bought my bulk ink kit from TLM Supply house for around $140. I was pretty pissed off to see the same exact kit on ebay not selling for even $9.95. Make sure and check eBay first. By the way, mine was for a c86, I think on ebay a 1280 bulk ink system runs like $40.
