    Default Who uses Inkjet Films (epson 3000/cannon 9000)?

    Does any body really do this, and does it work?

    I have a 3000. I use Posjet film. if I used it more often it would print better, but the posi's are fine.
    I sell the Posjet film in Canada, and I have a number of customers who go through it pretty quick, and they are using a bunch of different printers (1280, 1530, 3000. 7600)

    Are you using the standard ink for the Epson or do you buy that special order super-opaque black ink?

    I'm using the bulk posjet black, but on the advice of Richie (who is always correct) I'm switching back to the epson black once the bulk runs out. there's not much difference between the two, it's just way cheaper with the bulk.
    I think this really comes down to how much you use your printer, if you use it all the time, the heads stay clean, and the bulk is an affordable option. I need to take a primer on ripping the machine open and cleaning the heads from inside. they gum up.

    Will the 13x19 film run through a cannon 9000 or an older HP1150?

    'Cause it could change my life if they do.

    get a sample and try it. www.posjet.com

    if some 8.5x11 will work and the printer takes 13x19, you may not need Jeesus to change your life....

    i use Posjet film with an Epson 3000. i use 17x22" film. It is amazing. Beats the heck out of tiling for 16x20" images. It will print on that stuff with about a 1/4" margin, or so. i was using special laser film before, but the inkjet produces a much darker posi. No more crystal clear!
