HP 9800 for digital negatives?
Has anyone out there used anything aside from Epson printers to make digital negatives? If so, what are your experiences, or suggestions?
I was looking at the HP 9800.
Use at your own risk. Historically the HP inks have been rather inadequate for making digital negatives that require a UV light source. I would reccomend that you learn about blocking colors (if you are not already familiar with them) and see if you can have an HP dealer make some test negatives for you.

My 2 cents,
Google returns info on scrapbooking stuff when "Blocking colors" are searched.
Is there another term?
I haven't been making digital negs for my carbon stuff but I do have an HP 9800 I use for work. So I have some interest in this thread.
How about having some HP cartridges refilled at some of these places that do that sort of thing?
Is there a specific type of ink I should ask for? Epson ink into an HP cartridge?
Or should I ask for specific properties?
