    Cost per print difference between Canon IPF5000 and HPZ3100

    Anyone have some cost per print comparisons between the Canon IPF5000 and the HP Z3100, full coverage photo on gloss?

    Using retail cartrides purchased in single packs, I believe the Z3100 costs very close to $1.00/square foot vs. $0.61 for the canon IPF5000. The Z3100 price per print could be reduced by buying twin packs and also over time the OEM cartridges will probably come down in price.

    Lower costs for Canon & HP

    If you're serious about minimising printing costs, it's worth checking out CISS. Continuous ink supply system is a new product released only a few years ago it is only beginning to become popular around the world. It’s a device for minimizing printing expenses when using an ink-jet printer, an all-in-one device or a plotter; use it instead of buying new cartridges (especially good if you print a lot of high quality material in color). CISS printing quality differs only 2-5% from original cartridge quality, but economy is 1000%

    Mosaic - I can't find the cis/ink kits for the canon IPF5000 or the HP Z3100 on your website - can you provide a direct link?
