Preparing Stored Ink for Use


#1

Hi List,

I am now finally ready to install P Pro inks into my printer. The 700ml containers have sat still on a shelf for almost 5 months. I started to gently shake them to get the pigments uniformly suspended when on the warm tone very light grey cart I noticed what I thought was quite a bit of pigment settled at the bottom corners.

Should I try to shake less gently to mix that pigment in ? Or is it better left where it is ?

Thanks, Tom

I suggest a normal shake (less than orange juice!) and let sit over-night then fill the carts.

In future, let the carts lay on their sides and turn them 90 degrees every couple months. This will keep it all in suspension.

best,

Walker
