InkThrift PRO inks deliver a glossiness that Epson pigment inks cannot. Pigment is a solid material that must compete against the glossiness of the paper it is printed on. InkThrift PRO not only produces significantly better glossiness, but is far less prone to metamerism. This is the deal-sealer and you can see for yourself by ordering up an 8.5″ x 11″ sample. You can print the comparative image on your own system with your own Epson inks. One look side-by-side, and you’ll be convinced.
