ink and copies

sorry guys for doing this but I wonder if anyone here will have an aproximate of how many DVD cover can I print out of my Epson 290???? all full cartriguessss

I know it all depends of what you are printing and how much white you have but it anyone have an aprox number I can go on from there...

I'm calculating an stimate for a job where they want 80 copies or more...first time using this printer and I don't want to underprice it.

thanks in advance...

Osmani

Hi Osmany

I run 2 x R290 printers but you also have to see what cartridges you have!! Epson make the "81" and "82" and the 81 has around 20% more ink than the 82.

Even with the 82 you should be able to easily print 80 copies. I print onto Epson Photo Quality Matt injet paper and use the "Photo" setting ..if you are printing onto glossy photo paper and use the "Best Photo" setting you will use up heaps more ink!!!

Surely you need to factor in the cost of printing onto the DVD's as well???? I would price the 81 cartridge set and use that for costing along with your time too..gonna take a few hours to run off 80 covers!!!
