  2. mimaki cjv30- can you use the ss21 orange with this machine, and how soon until SS21 fades?

    I'd like to know two things please: 1. Can you use SS21 orange ink on the Mimaki CJV30? 2. Everyone may remember that the Roland orange ink on the RF640 eight color machine would fade noticeably within 3 months. Anyone know about the permanence of the SS21 orange ink?

  15. HP DesignJet z6810

    Brief question.... am I crazy/missing something, or is this just a design flaw in this printer? When a cartridge runs out of ink mid-job, can the z6810 really not pick up where it left off, as its predecessor (the z6100) did? This is so ridiculous. When a cartridge runs out, I can no longer just...
