I have been running pigment inks in my 1400 for 3-4 years without issue. The ICC profile is not needed but helps give it that extra pop. This goes for the 1100 also. Cobra inks does a great job of ink production. The problem with most aftermarket inks is the particals ink the are not uniform and some are too large. Cobra inks have no more chance of clogging the head as the durabrite inks. The durabrite do a good job but do have some color shift when heat pressed.The only problem i have with converting my 1400 over is that the guy who i purchased my inks from at inkjetarts recommended that i don't do that(switch inks to to pigment in the 1400)!!! What is your opinion??? Do you use pigment inks in a epson 1400??? Have you every seen it done???
Cobra ink is the only supplier of cobra ink. Yes refillable carts. Cobra has dye and pigment so you would need to order the pigment. The ICC profile is on there page and full instruction how to use it. You would need a graphic program that supports printing witha profile. Adobe, Corel, you could check if Inkscape or gimp support them as those 2 are free.So, what would be the process needed if i wanted to switch my 1400 over to pigment??? could i use refill carts.? who's a good distributor for cobra ink? cobra ink is pigment right? how would i adjust icc profile???
