Epson Ink Refills

11/25/2010 by Alex Paransky 

At Cartridge World Pasadena we refill and have available many types of ink cartridges for Epson printers.  However, we do not recommend that you take the cartridges in your printer and bring them to our store.  You see, the printer cartridge makes an air tight seal with the print head.  When you remove the printer cartridge, air starts to get into the print head.  Air dries the ink in the print head causing it to harden and block new ink flow. This happens rather quickly, just think how long it takes for ink to dry on paper.

So, when you are ready for your Epson cartridge refills, unless you have an extra set of cartridges do NOT bring cartridges from your printer into our store.  You can always bring the old cartridges after your replacement is complete.

Epson recommends that you do not leave your printer without ink cartridges for longer than it takes to exchange the cartridge.  This amounts to about 15 to 30 seconds.
