    I'd really like to keep this a local transaction if possible, but will ship if I need to at buyer's expense. It's not super heavy but it's big.

    See product description here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/consumer/consDetail.jsp?oid=53540919

    I just don't use this printer often enough to justify using it, and the ink really needs frequent use to keep the heads flowing. I used it a lot for black and white printing using the MIS carbon ink (see inksupply.com). The results were fabulous. I like the MIS inks - they refill great and don't need much tweaking in the print profiles to look right. They do need semi-frequent use however.

    So - as I said, I don't use this often enough. The heads will need some flushing, but none are clogged badly. I have a fair amount of ink from MIS that I'll include, as well as about half a pack of 13x19 Epson Ultra Premium Presentation Matte Paper. Ink carts and syringes for refilling also included.

    $50 for everything. Priced to move. I don't want to make a ton of money, just want this to go to a good home. If there are no local buyers interested, PM me and I'll get a shipping estimate. Also, feel free to ask any questions. I'll be happy to speak via phone with any interested buyers.

    If you don't find anyone local, I'd be happy to talk to you about shipping to Atlanta.

    Thanks Parker, I'll keep you in the loop. I'll let this hang out for awhile to see if a local pops up.

    And I don't know why the photo is upside down. I took it with my phone, and it was probably upside down. Looks fine on my 'puter though. :/

    Which MIS set were you using? I printed with Eboni for about a year before getting back into the darkroom. Kind of wish I hadn't sold that printer. :D The prints were exquisite.

    I use the eboni inks in the 3 black tanks, and use QuadToneRip to utilize those inks best. The other inks are the epson replacements from MIS which work fine for all the color work I've done...
