Installing Patent Free Epson Compatible Ink Cartridges


One of our biggest customer queries is regarding our replacement cartridges for Epson printers. We supply 'Patent Free' Compatible cartridges in order to comply with Epson patents and because of this, our cartridges do look somewhat different to OEM Genuine Epson cartridges and some other compatible cartridges that don't comply.

The video above shows a typical set of Patent Free cartridges being installed in a printer, just to give you an idea of the differences to expect when you receive and use the cartridges.

Patent Free cartridges differ in physical dimensions and chip design but are fully compatible with your printer.

Another potential source of confusion is when a customer can't find their printer model on the box or cartridge. This usually occurs when there are too many printers in the range to list on the product or alternatively when a new printer is released and box data has not yet been updated to show this.

The best thing to do is compare the cartridge code to those currently installed in your printer and if you're still not sure, do feel free to contact our friendly staff for confirmation!

Epson Connect

Epson Connect

Print from anything to anywhere, with new EPSON Connect Solutions.

Not one to be left behind Epson has jumped on board the remote printing bandwagon.

EPSON Connect Solutions allows you to print from your smartphone, tablet or computer, from anywhere in the world.

There are four Connect Solutions – Email Print, iPrint, Remote Print and Scan to Cloud.

Email Print allows you to email any EPSON printer from your home, place of work, Tesco, football match... basically anywhere. If an EPSON printer is email-enabled then all you need to do is attach the document to an email (you can send this from your smartphone or PC/laptop), enter the printer’s address and hit send. Simple! If you want to send the grandparents the latest photo of the kids, just email it to their printer!

The EPSON iPrint App basically does the same thing using a downloadable app. Using the cloud, the app allows you to send documents to your printer with minimum effort and no fuss. Although it is called the iPrint App, it does support Android phones too. Yay.

The Remote Print option has been around for a while. It is essentially the same as the Email Print option but just for your own personal printer. This option is completely compatible with any Windows software and really is as simple as clicking print.

Scan to Cloud is a pretty cool innovation on EPSON’s part. This nifty piece of technology allows you to use your all-in-one printer to scan and share a document or photo. All you need to do is scan the item in and hit share. Using the email settings, the document or photo is sent up to the cloud where it is saved or shared, depending on what you want to do with it.

This process is made even easier by the fact you can control the entire process using the display screen on the front of the printer!

Now you have no excuse not to print everything! EPSON has made it infinitely easier to share and print documents or photos from anywhere, to anywhere!
