Why there's a special section
There's is no definitive way to find the cheapest cartridges, no price comparison engines cover it comprehensively. Therefore I thought we could harness Moneysavers power to do this properly

What to do
When you find a cheap supply for your Epson printer, please note what the cartridge was and how much you paid, plus any other hints and tips.

To do it - just click reply to the thread

The following list of cheap suppliers was brilliantly compiled by chatter B4UgoZzz from other peoples post on the sites. They're a good startin point.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ADD OTHERS SUPPLIERS TO THE LIST IN THE THREAD tml Code=NTL =nutronic-ltd&include=0&since=-1&sort=3&rows=50

  • Just ordered a colour and a black duo pack C40 £15.99 inc delivery from Activdirect and you get a colour or black cartridge free. Have used these cartridges before and have had no problems .

    My last order was from Big Ink 1 Colour and 2 Black for £10.99 inc Delivery and all three cartridges ran done before showing half used in status monitor, don't know whether or not these were just a bad batch or not, so in the long run these not very good then.

    I've got an epson photo 830, and have tried filling myself which is ok, but can get messy and you need to buy a Zapper to re initiate the cartridge. Have also tried Nutronic compatibles, which give excellent colour, but can dry up, so always do a nozzle check before committing lots of expensive photo paper. I get much better results using top quality paper, such as Kodak Ultima, which is readily available. I find the best are genuine epson, and 7 day shop the best place to buy them, but Nutronic are just as good print quality wise.

    We order C70/C80 ink from The Ink Factory.

    They were (perhaps still are) doing BOGOF on Jet-Tec compatibles for all printers.

    Taking the BOGOF offer into account, two full sets of cartridges (blue, pink, yellow and black) cost us around £45 - bear in mind the original Epson black costs £25 alone!!

    Free delivery in the UK and cashback through GreasyPalm and other points sites.

    I have been using Print Rite compatible cartrdiges for the last 5 years. They have performed consistently and given excellent results. I use them in conjunction with my Epson 740 printer, Print & Go Instant Dry Gloss paper (from Viking) and usually at A4 size. They are available from a number of suppliers including listed here.
