Epson Stylus Photo R2880 Continuous Ink System


Marrutt Professional Photographic Inkjet Ink delivered via a Marrutt Continuous Ink System (CIS)
See below for infomation on the Marrutt bulk inkset, the ink flow system and purchasing details...



The Epson R2880 Continuous Ink System provides a continuous and reliable supply of Marrutt Professional Photographic Ink. This allows users to take advantage of bulk ink prices and eliminates the fuss of changing cartridges.

This simple system allows you to benefit from bulk ink prices, a reliable printing workflow and enable you to print to a professional standard in both color and black & white.

The process of installing and using this bulk flow system is extremely straight forward. In basic terms, top up the ink reservoirs with the Marrutt Ink supplied, then use the syringes supplied to purge each of the ink lines (this draws ink from the reservoirs through the tubes and into the cartridges). The final step is to insert the cartridges and fix the tubes onto the printer.

See the thumbnails on the right for larger photos showing the components of the system and a selection of frequently asked questions.

Continuous Ink Systems: Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why would I want to add a continuous ink system (CIS) to my printer?
A: Quite simply, to save money. If you print an 11 x 8.5 photo, you are using as much ink as 40 pages of text! - Using a CIS allows you to use a good quality photographic ink in bottles, which works out at around one fifth of the ink cost!
Q: How do you install a CIS - it looks complicated!
A: Don't worry, it comes completely assembled; the reservoirs are already connected to the tubes, and the tubes are already connected to the cartridges. Simply fill up the reservoirs with ink, take out a bung from each cartridge, pull the ink through using syringes provided, replace bungs and click the cartridges into the printer. Test for a perfect nozzle check, and Print!
Q: How does a Continuous Ink System work?
A: On a desktop printer, the print head pulls ink from the cartridge using a charge of vacuum generated by the printer. A CIS changes the cartridge from being a single ink chamber into a cartridge connected by a tube to a larger ink tank. In use, the print head pulls ink from the cartridge, which is pulling ink from the tube, which pulls ink from the larger reservoir/tank.
Q: How do I top up a CIS tank when its low on ink?
A: Take out the bung from this tank, insert a funnel that's provided, pour in your ink and re-insert the bung.

Quality Control: Marrutt Professional Photographic Ink Test Print

Here is how we check your printing accuracy:


With your starter pack, you will receive a certified accurate 8.5" x 11" master control print (as you see on the right) along with the web address where you can download the high res version.

Once you have installed your Marrutt Pro Inks, we will provide FREE custom profiles for your favorite Marrutt Pro inkjet papers.

To check their accuracy, print the downloaded image, and compare with the Master Control Print supplied with your kit.

Check this regularly (or at least every six months) to ensure that you are printing to the correct color and density at all times!


The Marrutt CIS for Epson stylus Photo R2880 provides a reliable and continuous bulk ink flow without having to use expensive cartridges.

When the printer indicates a cartridge needs to be replaced, the cartridge light will appear above the "empty" cartridge. To extinguish this, simply press the reset switch located above the cartridge and this will disappear enabling you to carry on printing.

This reset procedure means you should only need to check the physical ink levels in the reservoirs and ignore the levels on the printers' status monitor. The system is ideal for high production users who need a fast and reliable volume printing.

All Marrutt bulk feed systems come complete with a 12 month warranty and lifetime support from our experienced suport team.
All CISS packs include comprehensive illustrated instructions and video both demonstrating the installation process and operating instructions.
