Re: How did I do?

Use MIS ultratone 2 carbon pigment inks (available in cartridges and CIS).

The improvement over color inks is incredible. Absolutely no colour casts or metamerism, look identical under daylight, tungsten, flourescent, no split toning effects and the images have that 'etched in silver' look and deep blacks of a strong glossy chemical print.

Superb! I just can't get over how good they look and you can vary the tone very subtly from a cool look to a slightly warm look by just using the colour controls in the print driver.

And amazingly, ordering from the US, delivered to here in London, they cost LESS than standard Epson inks bought from Jessops a mile down the road from where I live.

Can you guess I'm enthusiastic about these inks....?
