Why choose genuine Epson ink?
Superior Image Quality
For photos as vivid as your memories. Epson inks are the highest quality inks you can put in an Epson printer. Years of research and development have gone into their formulation. The results are inks designed specifically to work with your printer, delivering stable long-lasting quality photos that cannot be matched by third party inks.
Longer Print Life
For brilliant photos that last and last. Permanence, or how long a photo will last before noticeably fading when exposed to light, is where third party inks are 'pale' in comparison to Epson inks. In a recent study, Henry Wilhelm a leading authority on photo longevity, projected Epson inks to last for up to 92 years¹ when used with Epson paper.

Epson Stylus C82 Ink Test (Print life)
Because we value your time as much as you do. All inkjet printers provide print head nozzle cleaning cycles to ensure reliable ink flow. Ink is consumed in these cleaning cycles. According to a study conducted by Torrey Pines Research², Epson ink cartridges require up to 260% fewer user-initiated cleaning cycles than third party ink cartridges.
More prints per cartridge. Torrey Pines Research² stated Epson inks "consistently outperformed third party ink brands" when it came to the number of prints per cartridge. The study showed that Epson inks can produce up to 114 more pages per black ink cartridge and 19 more pages per colour cartridge than the tested third party brands.

Don't take the risk with non-genuine inks
In or out of warranty Genuine Epson ink can prolong the life of your printer. Clean Genuine Epson ink, contained in cartridges that feature high quality filters, actually works to protect your printer and its print head.
Non-genuine inks can lack the cleanliness and technology needed for Epson's finely tuned inkjet printers. Without these, the print head could be damaged and cost you for replacement.
