Epson Stylus Color printers were the “big thing” when first introduced around 1997. Originally, they used a simple 2-cartridge design, one being black ink, and the other a 3-color with cyan/magenta/yellow. The ink saturated a sponge and air-vents at the top of the cartridge were regulated with a simple capillary design of channels molded in the top of the cartridge and defined in part by the label covering them.
The Stylus color line of printers was replaced by various other “Stylus” lines around 2005. At that time, Epson launched the “Stylus C” series and later the CX series. Both of which now complete directly with Canon’s PIXMA line and HP’s Deskjet series.
Carrot Ink offers a modest selection of Epson Stylus Color ink cartridges and supplies as both most printers are now “way old.”
Carrot Ink built the majority of our business in the early days on Epson Stylus Color ink cartridges.
