How Printer CISS Works
Do you remember the time when cellphones were first introduced to us? It sure made us all excited but at the same time, a little nervous because it’s a new technology that we still isn’t familiar with. After some time, we get the hang of it and the more we used it, the more we realized how much valuable the product is. In fact, we couldn’t anymore imagine a life without it…
The Ink All-You-Can System is also a new technology aimed at letting people save on printer inks. Most people also get nervous when they hear it, especially with the word “system.” They think it’s too complicated to understand. That’s why here at Ink All-You-Can, we spend ample time educating our customers about our product and services. We came up with the diagram below to hopefully explain in plain terms how the ink system conversion works. After all, it’s just as easy as A for Apple and B for boy…
The cartridge works just like your water dispenser.
When you print, the ink is ejected on the paper,
similar to opening the faucet in the water dispenser.
Unfortunately, the cartridge can only carry a small amount of ink good for several pages of printing.
So after a while, the ink inside the cartridge runs out quickly.
What can you do then to increase the capacity of the cartridges? Making the cartridge bigger won’t work because it won’t fit in the printer anymore.
Good thing there’s Ink All-You-Can System!
The Ink All-You-Can System or Continuous Ink System (CISS) works just like attaching the dispenser to a bigger water tank and tap into a bigger reservoir of water or ink.
When we install the CISS to your printer, we actually extend the cartridge using a tube or hose and attach it to an external ink tank, pretty much like your water pipes attached to the water tank.
Now, when you print, the cartridge ejects ink from the cartridge and that ink is replaced by the ink from the tank. You now have ink equivalent to as much as 40 cartridges without making the cartridges any bigger! Isn't that amazing?!
When the ink tank becomes low on ink, all you have to do is put more ink in the tank, similar to what you do when you refill water tanks. Then, you’re good to go for another round of unlimited printing!
After a while, the printer head (the one that acts like a faucet) will wear out, just like all other things which undergo normal wear and tear. When this time comes, you either have to buy a new cartridge (for Canon printer) or buy a printer head (for Epson and Brother printers) in order to bring back the printer in good working condition. In some cases for Brother and Epson printers, it is more advisable to buy a new printer instead of just replacing the printerhead (which costs more or less the same price as a brand new printer). The good thing is that your Ink All-You-Can System can normally be transferred to another printer as long as they are of the same brand and printer model, so you can further maximize your investment in Ink All-You-Can.
Converting your printer to ink system is just like making your phone “open line.” Before Ink All-You-Can, printer users don’t have any choice but to use the expensive original cartridges. It’s as if their printers are “locked” to the printer manufacturers’ original cartridges. But now, using Ink All-You-Can unlocks your printer and opens the line for savings and convenience, without sacrificing print quality.
