Epson Printers and Scanners
We offer the full range of Epson printers, scanners and multifunction printer/scanners from the inkjet range.
As a rule of thumb printers and multifunctions can be divided into two types.
1. General Purpose Printers
These use four cartridges (black plus the three colours) and are perfect for anyone who wants to print mostly text and graphics with the occasional photograph. They will still reproduce photos well but they lack the detail of the dedicated photo quality printer.
2. Photo Quality Printer
These have additional cartridges such as a light cyan and light magenta and this together with other enhancements, give them the ability to reproduce finer details from photos. Bear in mind that the more inks a printer takes, the more expensive they will be to run.
In addition most of the multifunction units in the Epson range are now wireless which means they can be connected to your laptop or desktop computer without any cables. This offers several benefits - for instance, the printer can be placed anywhere within wireless range and not neccesarily next to the computer. If you have more than one computers you do not have to set one up as the print server.
We offer a full installation service for printers. Please contact us for details.

Why use Epson ink? There are many cheap so called compatible inks on the market. These compatible cartridges are without exception a false economy. These cartridges use inferior ink that is not fade or water resistant and will inevitably give disapointing results when printing photographs.
More importantly, these so called compatible cartridges can cause severe damage to your printer. They are susceptible to leaking which can cause longterm problems with the printer and the ink formulation can damage the print head.
You should also be aware that using non-Epson inks in your printer during the warranty period can invalidage your warranty.
Epson inks cartridges do cost a little more but this is because they cost more to make! Epson cartridges:
- Use high quality inks designed to pevent damage to the delicate print head.
- Contain cleaning fluid as part of their formulation which keeps the inkjet nozzles clean and unbocked.
- Have a sophsticated valve mechanism protected by patents that only allows ink into the print head when it is needed.
- Use pigment based inks that are water resistant and will not fade for up to 99 years. Perfect for outdoor notices.
