    Any good printer ink supplier recommendations?

    I just picked up a new (well, new to me - thanks Harry!) HP Z3200 and inevitably I'll soon need to get some ink cartridges for it.

    Any good recommendations on trustworthy sources of genuine inks at great price/great service?

    I like Welcome to tastarsupply - Epson wide-format printers and supplies, color management, computer and RIP solutions for their recycling program (you get money back on your next order). Good pricing and free shipping. I don't think the recycling program applies to HP though....

    IT Supplies - Your discount digital source for Epson, HP, and Canon printers, ink, toner and more! is another trusted resource. Free shipping with minimum $ order, which isn't difficult to meet.

    I'll second Atlex; I have ordered ink and had it arrive the next day with standard shipping.

    Thank you all. This is very helpful.

    Shades of Paper may be getting my first bit of business with the D-Roller. I LOVE the Z3200 but curl is no fun especially on large prints.

    I've dealt with Atles.com, Inkjetart and Shades of Paper and all have been efficient, quick with good customer service. Prices on certain items can often be different between them with the occasional sales on items, so it's good to compare prior to purchasing.

    It is easy and cheap to make a device to flatten your prints. If you would like more info, let me know.

    The do it yourself hints would be very welcome, thank you!

    I've been reading a few concerns about the longevity of the D-Roller & rubber sticking (or not). I don't mind paying for quality but I HATE stuff that fails.

    Graham, I made my own D-roller using an extra heavy duty 3" core (I think it was an extra core from a paper backdrop) which I cut into different lengths. I made a 24" model and a 44" model. I used Tyvek as a rolling substrate as I've found it is thin, pliable, somewhat "soft/gentle" and very strong. Works great and easily stored. No longevity problems whatsoever....

    Atlex and they tend to run a bit less expensive than most. They are also pretty free with 5% discounts after a large order.
