    Comments about Epson 96 UltraChrome K3 Light Black Ink Cartridge:

    This is a pro cartridge. I've been using this ink for years now and even on old prints the tones are as rich as the day I've printed them. Very easy to load into the printer and great for black and white prints.

      Comments about Epson 96 UltraChrome K3 Light Black Ink Cartridge:

      I use an Epson R2880 printer to print my photos. I have learned through experience that purchasing brand-name printer ink rather than trying to cut corners and purchasing cartridge refills is the only way to go. I have been an Epson printer owner for a number of years and only purchase Epson ink.

        Always sent work out, but since I picked up the Epson R2880 - I have been printing out my orders in house. TheUltraChrome K3 Inks from Epson have been great in reproducing the colors that it is very hard to tell which came from the lab and what I just printed out.

              I print on a lot of materials and try to make good use of the flat feed. I haven't had any flaking problems with these inks on anything, I have heard of others having that issue though. Prints are durable and look great.
