Inkjet cartridges can be quite expensive, but I have found a great place
online to order compatible cartridges - www.atlanticinkjet.com. I have no
affiliation with them, only as a satisfied customer. I have purchased ink
for many epson models, and a couple of hp models, and the quality is as good
as eom cartridges, at a fraction of the price.
Just thought I'd throw that in.
