    Maybe we need to ignore posts from newbies with odd names and very few posts, that start shooting right away?

    Trolls abound.

    I'm all for the benefit of the doubt. It sometimes takes people a few posts to get used to the way a specific community works and even new users may have something useful to say. Even if it isn't immediately apparent...

    Appreciate your going into rant mode on your first post. Now please take your Ritalin...

    Interested to know if you've made your own ink sets for your Canon ipf series printer. Please provide any helpful details.
    Thanks

    This discussion is three years old, and I am wondering if a workable solution has been found for those of us using Canon technology?

    From what I can tell there has been some inquiry but no progress on the Canon printer.

    Internet forums are really good for pointing people in directions that have already been tried but not so good at helping solve these types of issues where there is no clear path. I think the only way that something will actually happen is if one of us starts doing it and figuring out what does and doesn't work. That is basically how the Epson printers became the defacto leader in this area. A few people worked with the printers, inks, software and other materials until they found a solution. Some of them began marketing it which took much of the uncertainty out of the process for later adopters.

    For those that are late to the party like myself, I own and use a Pixma Pro-100 with the OEM inks and regularly use it for kallitypes. I havenít had any problems. Granted, Iím not a seasoned pro with digital negs, but for my uses itís been just fine.

    Came across this. Not sure how they work or anything about them, but sounds like they're aiming in the right direction for the silk screen printing folks.

    Haven't checked prices either - yet.

    The Pro-100 works fine for digital negs with the stock CLI-42 inks, so long as you take the time to profile your printer/surface initially (I used Chartthrob). Use the inkpress transparency film. Not sure why everyone is up in a knot about "blocking." Properly profiled negs are extremely faint - whatever is in the dye-based ink is quite effective in blocking UV. The same is true of CLI-8 materials.
