Okay, that helps explain it a litte better. I read someone's post about refilling the inks (and duct taping the holes), I was planning on doing that too, to cut down the costs. When I need help with that (I wouldn't even know what inks to buy), I'll come and ask.

It all depends on the cart design.
Most Epson printers have pretty good refillable cart and high quality 3rd parry ink support.

You simply fill up the carts and some carts you have to prime a little chamber just prior to the ink exit port. It sort of creates a little syphon effect. You do this by inserting the syringe without a needle into the exit port and suck the bit or air that is trapped in it till you are pulling solid liquid ink.

Canon printers do not have good refillable cart support. Not because no ne cares but because the OEM carts are VERY easy to refill and reset.

You normally use silicone plugs to seal up the carts after refilling and there is really no need to tape up anything if you refill them correctly.

I can help you with that!
