It may be time to buy yourself a set of refillable cartridges and extract ink from Epson OEM large format cartridges (110, 220, 350, 700 mL) purchased on Ebay. I have been doing this for many years now. The Ebay prices have jumped a lot in the last year. 2-3 years ago a light light black 110mL cartridge cost about $10, 220mL about $15. 700mL $40. Now a 110mL is about $50, but still only 50 cents per mL than the $1 you are buying now. A 700 mL cart is about $140 so that is 20 cents per mL. I have approximately 35 complete R3000/P600 sets worth of Epson OEM VM K3 ink for extraction. That ink cost me about $600 in total, the 35 sets in new retail R3000/P600 cartridges would cost close to $10K!!!!

It’s an excellent strategy though the number of k3 or k3+ cartridges have become increasingly challenging to locate and they too have increased in price.

I just looked and there are many PK, MK, C, LC, M, LC, Y 700 mL cartridges for approximately $100 or less. The Light Black and Light Light Black go for about $150.

Can you provide some links. The only ones I seem to find are the 110 or 220 ml anywhere near that price.

So you want me to give up links to my large supply......:-)!

Simple just search Ebay for Epson 350ml or 700ml ink
