    Thank you


    Just a Thank you and all the best


    Ce message est simplement pour vous dire que j'ai bien reçu la commande XXXXXX et que je suis très satisfait de la rapidité de la livraison et aussi de la qualité de l'encre. C'est la première fois que j'utilise de l'encre "autre que l'originale" et pour le moment je suis très satisfait. Soyez certain que je vais vous référez à mes amis et collègues de travail et c'est certain que je vais commander à nouveau de chez vous. Merci beaucoup.


    Je veux seulement vous dire un gros merci pour la rapidité avec lequel vous avez traité ma demande et aussi pour le petit extra en papier photos,c'est très apprécié.



    I received my order, thank you for your great customer service..



    It is not often people write emails or letters of praise but consider this one of the rare ones!
    I must say, ordering your product was about the easiest imaginable. Coupled with the fact that it arrived here basically “next day” I am thoroughly happy. To tell you the truth, I was expecting to have to go pay full retail for one black cartridge thinking that your’s would take at least a week to arrive but I was wrong, the order arrived before I could even go out to get one!
    Congrats people, I WILL tell all my friends and neighbours about you!

Tattoos using your inkjet printer

Thought your inkjet printer was for only making photo’s , well you were wrong…

Temporary tattoo papilio.

Now, with these new paper composites you can make temporary tattoo’s for your kids, or your self at Halloween, to attend Sporting events, or for you latest concert, or National Event (Quebec 400th birthday).

I bet you always wanted a tattoo but didn’t want to have to go through the pain of having one done (or embarrassment) . You can now have as many painless tattoos as you like by just using your inkjet or laser printer.

Simply by printing off any design to the special tattoo paper, including photos you can transfer them to any body part in minutes. The tattoo paper is easy to use and tattoos can last for up to a week before they wash off.

The key is the special tattoo paper and not the inkjet inks. Any inkjet ink will work well, but beware of raining days, as no inkjet yet on the market is fully waterproof.

You can buy this tattoo paper on-line from suppliers like papilio.com or others at reasonable rates. Also check out you local paper supply store, they probably have something similar in stock.

Don’t delay… Its time to party….

Running out of ink too soon ?
Ever buy a new inkjet printer and after a short period of time run out of ink. Well its no surprise. After a discussion with a Chemist friend of mine he let me know that the inkjet Printer Manufacturers routinely deliver new printers with partially filled inkjet cartridges.
we all know that inkjet printer manufacturers make the majority of their profits from the sale of inkjet cartridges. Don’t forget you can save to by purchasing 3rd party compatible cartridges at on-line stored like Metawatch Inkjet Supplies

Inkjet Ink Secret Ingredient


Also goes by the name (Chemists call it) N-Pyrol.

This ingredient can make up to 40-60% of some inkjet inks and is the secret ingredient that prevents the ink from evaporating into the air.

Beware though. There are many refill establishments that do not use N-Pyrol in their inks (Typically drop by and refill shops) where the ink may need to be used within 30 days after refilling. Inkjet cartridges using N-Pyrol can last 3 years and more without any degradation in the effectiveness of the ink when used in the 20 deg C range.

Considered a “fairly” non toxic ingredient, it is also commonly used for Paint Strippers.

It is readily absorbed by the skin and has been know to cause local irritation in laboratory testing.
