    Does it use a single cartridge, multiple cartridges or CIS?
    What are the price(s) per cart or bottle of ink?
    Who supplies the inks?

    Cheers

    If is isn’t CIS, can it be converted relatively cheaply?

    It uses a 220 ml cartrige , NOT refillable (tho you can kludge it , we do) , prices range from about $65 a cart , the versacam uses 4 , CMYK , the soljet uses 12 , 2 x CMYK + Lc LM.
    There are bulk fill systems using the same cart , but they can cause problems. (airlocks etc)
    Aftermarket inks are available for Solvent based printers using the epson Dx3 heads (Like the Cadet – tho the suppliers of Cadet dont seem to offer low cost , and I find that their carts are pretty expensive – the solvent inks are readily avialable at 1/2 to 1/3rd or less than their price) and so far , I havent seen aftermarket Eco-sol inks (tho mt new printer claims to use the same inks and its about GBP100 per litre , about 65% less than I currently pay , so there is hope!!)
    Evidently the Cadet used to use Lyson , but I have heard they now use Inks supplied in Israel , prolly Techink or someone like that , but its pure conjecture.
    I think Eco-Sol inks are Tied into Epson , the mnfgrs that use the Epson heads can only use Epson inks as OEM. the whole ink question is a little cloudy at the moment , but undoubtedly will settle down soon
