April 10 - Printer Ink... more expensive than champagne

Chris Schulz from Island Inkjet shared what he’s learned about inkjet printers and how to maintain them.

Chris showed how to save money by having your old cartridges refilled, or by using generic ink jet products.

When you calculate the cost of what a few ounces of ink cost, you would be shocked to find that it’s more costly than the most expensive champagnes. Chris explained how print heads function, how they fail, and how to prevent such failures.
