I'm sure this has been brought up before but does anyone have a good recommendation for a printer? I currently use a Epson XP-310 and is has nice print quality but the cost of ink is a bit pricey. It uses 3 seperate color Cartridges and a black cartridge and for a pack of all 4 after tax it runs about $40. I've been doing a little research on refillable printers/cartridges and was wandering if it was more cost effective to go that route to be able to print a lot more models for a bit cheaper or what other people have tried?

"CIS" is the keyword you want to use when doing searches for information about Continuous Ink Systems (the ultimate destination for saving money on ink.) There are threads here and over at FatDragonGames.proboards.com

Sorry for the late reply! Also nice! Yeah I looked into the L355 and not sure why they don't just make it available in the US lol. Can you use any high quality ink with a CIS or I guess more specifically can two brands mix? Say I bought one brand of ink and then down the road a bought a different brand, is it recommended to use up all the other in the system first or can they mix? Thanks for all the answers, it's definitely helping me decide on wether or not to dive in to a CIS system lol!
I believe so, but I would check with pirinpinpel over at the FDG forum (link above). He has had his for almost 2 years. Much longer than me, I still haven't gotten close to needing my backup ink, leftover from inkowl.com when I was trying refilling hp cartridges, (not always successfully). Considering I've recently printed quite a few Lord Zsezse' elven wall pieces, all blue sea tiles from a Fatdragongames ship, some of Eddnic's creations, Dave Graffam's marauder, and a handful of scaled up to 28mm figures from (and inspired by) Jim Bowen's mini dungeon adventures.
i was never born, i just am, and i've been dead for years.

Lol I'll definitely have to mention it on there too, I have a bunch of Fat Dragons dungeon sets and minis that I've really been wanting to print for a fantasy RPG also some other models for a scifi game. Also really thinking about the CIS system too since once I get started on a RPG I want to run then I really want to print a ton of tiles, models, and props from those sets and also a bunch of One Monk and other minis to go with, possibly a rule set too if I decide on what rule set to use. At the moment with currently just buying four Cartridges at a time that run almost $10 each and don't really go to far once printing models it can get expensive quick lol. I've seen for refill bottles of ink in each of the colors I can spend around the same amount as a set of Cartridges and get over 20 times the ink which equals way more printing, it definitely looks appealing lol.

Vermin King: I've decided I need to stop trying to get stuff back that I lost and get back to working on new stuff. Until work stuff gets caught up, I need to fight the rebuilding aspect.

bravesirkevin: @vermin King, you should still be able to download the stuff you purchased from me again, if that helps. If you have any issues, just drop me a direct message and I'll send through whichever ones you can't download

Vermin King: And none of the Streetpaper Advent models were in there, and only seven of bravesirkevin's figures are in there, and none of my purchased ones... And the old Canon kid's models are still beyond reach

Vermin King: I feel less 'at a complete loss', now. I found a thumb drive of 'Papercraft'. Not sure how old it is, but it does have the Zio models, old Streetpaper, old Canon and HP models, etc. Now it is just an overwhelming loss
