Really need more info man. What printer do you have ? Some inkers will tell you their ink is made for wide format printers only. Others say their ink can be used in both desktop and wide. (cobra). Inkproducts said they supported neither of mine espsons with their ink.. Inkowl says their sub inks are different formulations and one is made for wide and the other for desktop print heads.
So in the future be more specific with your specific printing environment so better help can be given.

Firebird hit it on the head. Asking what kind of ink people are using because you need to order ASAP is like asking what kind of car do you drive because you need to buy one ASAP. At the least - one would need to know wide format or desktop as typically that is two different worlds when it comes to ink.

I use Ink X Pro, Andy is great and I love my colors...

I have 4 WF7110's using the cobra ink profile (I used them before but the blues kept clogging) and I don't think I'll ever change to anyone else...

1 full year of perfect colors and ZERO clogging...

Prices are great but he only sells 100ml bottles so I'm still looking for a good ink from someone who does 1 litre bottles with good colors...

The sublimation ink brand which I have been using for more than2 years now is Subtransfer, the reason behind this is the high level of compatibility with various printers and printer heads, and more importantly it is ideal for printing on A3/A4 paper. Furthermore, the ink is capable of continuous printing for more than 15 meters without stopping.

Another one for Inktec Sublinova Smart. Compatible with Epsons and easily available in Europe. Main thing is the certainty that the product is the same each time I buy it. Too many ink suppliers re-packaging bulk product in own label bottles with no guarantee that the ink is the same from batch to batch.

Presently using Cobra inks in an Epson WF7710 and WF7610.


Had a couple of snags along the way - most recently at the end of August.


Found Cobra support to be worse than useless, in that they ignored me entirely. Don't want to know about it or discuss it. Not interested in solutions.



If snags develop, you are your own test pilot.
