I am considering buying an Epson printer which uses DuraBrite ink. Does anyone who has such a printer know whether compatible inks give the same sharp results DuraBrite offers, or are they dye rather than pigment based?
I buy compatibles from a number of well known suppliers like SVP,IJT,7dayshop (supplier depending on price), and I find the results are very similar, for standard printing and standard photo print-outs, that cover my needs.
If you are referring to plain paper as standard printer paper, then there will always be a 'poorer' image with photographic work, whatever you use. To obtain higher quality photographic work, then the only solution would be to use the correct gloss or matt photographic paper, with perhaps a 'photo' type print cartridge. I would suggest that you try a few experiments with a compatible cartridge and perhaps correct photo paper, and see if that meets your needs.
