Inks are the same exact exact compostion for the 7510 and the WF1100, another poster has confirmed the WF1100. I don't do films, but if one works so should the other ...Does anyone know if this printer works for printing on transparencies? I bought the printer thinking it would but after reading the Epson website it says that it's not able to. However I've seen other people use a Epson Workforce 1100 for printing transparencies and the Epson website also says that model cannot print on them. I've never printed on transparencies and am new to screen printing. I basically just wanted a wide-format printer for printing transparencies for under $200. What was good about the 7510 is that it's also a scanner and can use WiFi. If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated.
The 7510 will print transparencies. If you are going to use solely for this purpose it is reccomended to get refillable cartridges and put dye ink and more specifically ink formulated for this purpose. The stock inks are pigment and although will work you can save yourself a lot of time and eliminate film problems.
Thank you so much! Very helpful information.No the 7510 should pick up the transparency and the paper sensor should pick up the film. Every now and then it will kick out the film. Fixxons films work great at a good price and I think they offer smaller packages but I only buy in large packs. You can use the OEM cartridges but best to buy a refillable and use blackmaxx ink or other specifically for films then you can print all black. Look up video on YouTube user sben7633. Will explain how to print all black or you can use same method with OEM color carts to print darker. If using the OEM with pigment you might also try using advanced settings and increase saturation in small increments. The film won't be as dark as dye ink but pigment ink has UV blockers which will make the work.
