Greetings,

I've been reading this forum for a while and I found a post that I can change basic DYE 664 inks for L1300 with Epson 113 pigment inks. I still didn't do 1st fill as I am waiting for some answers.
Anyone tested it? Will this cause me any problems, if yes, is everything solvable? What colour changes should I set for best results?
I mostly wanna print on HTP and paper for stickers.

Thanks in advance,
CooLion

The L1300 is technically based on the discontinued B1100 A3 printer which used 4 pigment inks - CMYK originally , the L1300 gets delivered with the dye ink set 664 which has a very poor fading characteristic. You can either swap to a much better dye ink - the Epson 106 of the ET-7750 or the Epson 114 of the ET-8550 or the 113 pigment inkset as you consider. Be aware that the black ink is tuned for matte papers and does not adhere to glossy surfaces. If that's a problem for you you may switch to some photo black refill ink as it is available for Epson printers like the P600 or P700, and you use the matte paper selection and print with the photo black on glossy papers. But all this would require some initial testing to get the best output.

Very helpful informations, Sir. I am struggling to find refill bottles for p600 or p700, so I just think about sticking with 113 inks for now (I can find easily at local dealer in Slovenia). I hope switching from 113 matte to photoblack pigment ink later on (when I find this photo black ink) will be easy.
I see you're located in Germany, you know any store when I can order this photo black pigment online?

Thanks!
