How it works
The UltraGamut Archival Ink System, also known as a continuous ink system (CIS), a continuous ink supply system (CISS), a continuous flow system (CFS), an automatic ink refill system (AIRS), or a bulk feed ink system delivers a large and practically unlimited volume of liquid ink to a comparatively small inkjet printhead. Many business and professional grade printers incorporate an UltraGamut Archival Ink System in their printing setup to increase the speed and volume of printing capacity. The UltraGamut Archival Ink System internal structure is designed to provide a constant level of barometric pressure, delivering a smooth flow of ink to the cartridges as needed. The rear tank is vented to atmosphere, and negative gauge air pressure in the front tank delivers ink to the cartridges through the tubing.
Savings & Value
The UltraGamut Archival Ink System is pre-filled with the equivalent of 40 ink cartridges, 100ml of each color: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black for a total of 400ml. On the other hand, the original cartridges contain around 10ml ink, for a total savings of over $600 compared to buying original cartridges.
Photos printed with the UltraGamut Archival Ink System match or exceed the print quality of the original ink cartridges. The photos stand up to smudges, scratches, and fading. That means you can print, share and frame as many photos as you wish, worry-free. The UltraGamut Archival Ink formula consists of colorants that are grinded through a state-of-the-art mill to sub-micron size and further screened through a 0.2 micron filter to remove oversize particles ensuring consistent color development and clog free performance. Next, the UltraGamut Archival Ink is passed through a laser operated particle size analyzer which measures and records the light scattering of the UltraGamut Archival Ink returning a "particle size distribution chart" that profiles the size "in microns" of the colorants. Finally the color value of the UltraGamut Archival Ink is quantified through a spectrophotometer which returns a value compared to the established standard, ensuring maximum color gamut and color consistency in every batch of UltraGamut Archival Ink.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is print color gamut and why is it important?
A: Print color gamut is the range of colors a printer/ink/paper combination can reproduce. It is an important quality factor in the overall print. Archival ink features a precisely calibrated ultra wide color gamut that disperses deeply into the photo paper to produce a bright, vibrant print with strong life-like color intensity that is best described as a truly professional quality photo lab print.
Q: Why do cheap third party inks fade so fast?
A: Pictures fade when they're exposed to light, air pollution, moisture, and heat. Archival ink shields your pictures from these picture-unfriendly factors so your prints will last years — even when they're displayed at home unprotected. So while other brands may only look at light fade, we take into account all the known factors that affect print life in order to create fade-resistant archival ink.
Q: Does your ink match the quality of the original ink?
A: Archival ink is guaranteed to match (and exceed!) the quality, performance, color gamut, and fade resistance of the original cartridge ink. Archival inks have an enhanced color gamut, are smudge-resistant, fade-resistant, high-lighter safe and fast-drying.
Q: What are some sample prints taken with your ink?
A: Request your very own free sample prints to be mailed to you by contacting us.
Q: How does the quality of other ink reservoirs compare to yours?
A: Other brands use glue to seal their cheap and thin multi-peice PVC plastic ink tanks together causing ink to erode through the glue and leak all over the place, constructed to last weeks if not days. Our thick single-peice ABS plastic ink tanks are sealed using a compactor machine that hard presses the unit together, constructed to last a life time.
Q: How does the quality of other delivery cartridges compare to yours?
A: Other brands use large frame non-pressurized delivery cartridges that are not intended for a continuous ink system which results in reduced ink flow from the ink reservoirs to the delivery cartridges, streaking in prints, jammed print heads, and leaks. Our system features high quality small frame pressurized delivery cartridges that provide the proper level of ink flow from the ink reservoir to the cartridges, wont jam the print head, streak, or leak.
Q: Do I have to cut or modify my printer in any way in order to install your continuous ink system?
A: No modification to your printer is needed to install our system. Simply place the adhesive tubing clip that holds your tubing in place in your printer according to the instructions.
Q: Will using your continuous ink system void my printer warranty?
A: No it will not void your warranty. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Improvement Act states: a company cannot sell a product under the pretense that the consumer must purchase replacement parts, add-ons, etc.. from that particular company. (United States Code Annotated Title 15 Commerce and Trade Chapter 50 Consumer Product Warranties 15 Section 2302)
Q: How does the installation procedure of your continuous ink system differ from another brand?
A: Our system is truly plug-and-play ready. Installing the system is easy as putting in the archival cartridges, applying the tubing clip in the correct position according to the instructions, and start printing! Other brands require you to prime their system, fill up their reservoirs, fill up their cartridges with ink, then pump their system.
Q: Can I view the installation instructions of your continuous ink system before buying?
A: To prevent knock-off sellers from copying our instructions we will provide them to you immediately after purchase at your request.
Q: How do your policies differ from another brand?
A: Our system is so robust, easy to use, and high quality that we offer a 1 year total-satisfaction money back guarantee, 1 year full-coverage warranty, free support, free shipment insurance, and no restocking fees. Other brands offer no money back guarantee, no warranty, no support, no shipment insurance, and charge you 'restocking fees' to ship back your system if you're lucky, or wont even allow you to make a return.
