It's expensive, does that answer your question it's a Lexmark you cannot get compatible carts for it. Only original's

o.k.--- is the printed page smudgable by damp?
i.e. is the ink watersoluble as with normal inkjet ink?.

No I think it is better than ordinary ink, but a cheap laser is better for text it is water proof

Expect to pay at least £20 (30 Euros) for a colour cartridge which holds about 5 ml per colour. Lexmark makes its money out of cartridges, not printers.

The cartridges seem to be virtually impossible to get hold of in the UK.

P.S. that's if you can find a stockist of this, pretty elusive, cartridge.

forgot...may I quote from the HP crew.....'Thermal inkjet printers use heat to generate vapor bubbles, ejecting small drops of ink through nozzles and placing them precisely on a surface to form text or images. Its advantages are small drop sizes, high printhead operating frequency, excellent system reliability and highly controlled ink drop placement. Integrated electronics mean fewer electrical connections, faster operation and higher color resolution. Originally developed for desktop printers, thermal inkjet is designed to be inexpensive, quiet and easy to use.' and click here

P.P.S. It don't take a genius to work out that even if the cartridge has four colours you are paying £1,000 per litre. How much was the printer? They should give it away free.
