Save with this bundle. This ink drain kit and CMYK dpiSub Premium Sublimation Ink bundle for Epson Eco-Tank printers can be used to drain the ink from a printer in preparation for filling the printer with dpiSub ink.
Our official response to mixing inks is that you should not do it and if you have a printer with sublimation ink in it already, it’s definitely best to replace the printer with a new unit and start fresh with new ink. However, with so many people wanting to switch to our dpiSub Premium Sublimation Ink without the expense of purchasing a new printer we decided it was time to develop a best practice method.
Please note that we do not take responsibility for your printer if it’s damaged while you are working on it. We offer these bundles for anyone who is willing to tackle the task of swapping ink brands.
The video below demonstrates two things:
- The first part of the video shows a printer with a brand of ink known to have over saturated magenta images as well as blacks that come out brown instead of black. We basically mixed our ink 50/50 and show the result of each color mix one at a time.
- The second part demonstrates how to drain the ink from an Epson Eco-Tank printer and replace the ink. In the video we replaced the ink with regular Epson inkjet ink to be used for normal printing but it’s the same process to replace the sublimation ink.
