So, I've been thinking about getting a 13x19 printer, probably a Canon pro 1 or 10, but I'm a low volume user and I'm wondering if I'd be setting myself up for a lot of ink loss if I'm not cranking out lots of media.  What's the 'shelf life' of ink that's sitting in the system?

Although the ink cartridges are much larger than the tiny ones that come with all-in-one printers, at 36 ml, they are not going to last forever. Most manufactures put the ink print-by-date as 6 months after openning. But I know of some people that have been using cartridges as long as 3 years.

They are both pigment ink printers, so you really don't want to leave them sitting idle for months on end.
