Hi everyone. I recently purchased a Ricoh 3300 printer with Subli jet ink and have been trying to calculate ink costs. Since I just set this up, they advised me that 12% of the 1st cartridges would be used to charge the system, which I understand, but it seems like I am not quite getting the bang for my buck. I did a check on my ink supply and came up with Y-32%, M-19%, C-17%, and K-33%. I checked my print count and it was 69 color prints. When I print, I normally do 8.5x11 paper and will print 2 full wrap mugs, checkbook covers, or anything similiar as to not waste paper. With my calculation with the system already charged my next set of cartridges should produce around 120 color prints. If that is the case and I am paying $240 for a full ink set, each 8.5x11 print would be over $2 once you figure shipping. I guess I am wondering if this is the norm. Like I said, I just started a couple of months ago and still learning quite a bit.
