Dye or pigment ink ?
Most Epson printers handle different ink types equally well. You can successfully use dye ink in pigment (Durabrite, Ultra-chrome etc) printers and pigment ink in dye printers. Changing from one ink type to another is relatively straight forward, but may require some adjustments to the printer settings.
If you don't need the extended fade resistance of pigment ink - use DYE. Dye ink is easier to work with, less susceptible to cloging and cheaper to buy. Most (not all) Epson photo printers use dye ink.
On the other hand, if you produce prints for resale or want to display them, using quality pigment ink can greatly increase the display life and durability of the prints. Even if your Epson printer is intended to use dye ink (photo printer), it is possible to use a pigment ink set to fill it with. You may have to make adjustments to the printer settings and/or use an ICC profile together with advanced photo software (eg Photoshop) to boost the weaker pigment ink colours, but it can be done.
Find the right ink for your Epson...
E5 (dye) is our most popular refill ink for Epson printers. It is great for printing anything from plain paper documents to highest quality photos in most Epson printer models. E5 is also suitable for printing CD's and DVD's, T-shirt transfers, matt and gloss inkjet labels and most other inkjet media. E5 can also be used in "Claria" ink printers, but the prints don't look quite as vibrant as with Epson "Claria" or InkBank E6 ink. Available in: BK,C,M,Y (all 4 colour printers) BK,C,M,Y,LC, LM (6 colour printers eg R210, R230, R350, RX610)
E6 (dye) is a direct substitute for Epson "Claria" ink, used in late model photo printers (eg: Artisan 600/700/800/1400, Photo R270, R290, R380, R390, RX590, RX610, T50, TX650, TX700, TX800, Photo1400 &1410 etc) Perfect colour match to Claria. Other properties are similar to E5. Great for photos, CD's, DVD's etc. E6 can also be used in older (pre Claria) Epsons, but there is no noticeable improvement in print quality over E5 in these printers. If anything, the colour balance is slightly less accurate. Available in: BK,C,M,Y,LC,LM
E8 (pigment) is a direct replacement ink set for R800 and R1800 printers. High fade resistance and works great on most inkjet media including gloss paper. The ink set includes 2 blacks, red and blue inks plus a clear gloss optimiser (GO). This ink set is not suitable for any printers other than the R800, R1800, R1900. R1900 uses same colour ink set as R800/1800, but with orange ink instead of the blue. Note: E8 GO is not quite as glossy, as the original Epson gloss, so if you want the highest gloss prints, use the Epson original T0540 gloss cartridge with the E8 ink set. Available in: MK, PK, C, M, Y, R, B, OR, GO
E9 PRO (pigment) is a direct replacement for Epson wide format (Ultrachrome) ink, but works well in desktop (Durabrite) models. Superior fade resistance makes it the ideal ink choice for high quality display prints. Nice output on most media from matte to high gloss. ICC profile required for most accurate output. Available in: BK,PK,C,M,Y,LC,LM,MK,LK and LLK (only pick the colours relevant to your model)
E9 BK is a universal pigment black ink for all Epson printers with a single black cartridge.
E10 PRO (pigment) is a direct replacement for Epson K3 Ultrachrome as used in late model wide format printers. There are 9 inks in the E10 set with either M&LM (eg 3800/4800 PRO) or VM&VLM (vivid M and vivid LM) as used in the K3 Vivid series (eg 3880/4880 PRO). These inks are very close match to OEM including light fastness, durability and colour balance. Available in: MK, PK, LK, LLK, C, M, Y, LC, LM, VM, VLM (only pick the colours relevant to your model)
Note: All inks listed here are fully OEM compatible and there should be no need to flush the cartridges or purge the ink system, when switching over from Epson ink. If changing from other third party inks, purging the print head is recommended to prevent incompatibility issues.
PK = photo black, MK = matte black, BK = universal black, LK = light black, LLK = light-light black, C = cyan, M = magenta, VM = vivid magenta, Y = yellow, LC = light cyan, LM = light magenta, VLM = vivid light magenta, R = red, B = blue, OR = orange
