Printing White!
Posted by docipaul on Friday, December 02, 2016 10:00 AM

After years of patiently waiting, I can now say ''I can print white!''

What are we looking at here?  Can you explain a little more? is this on white paper with a light gray background?

I guess Paul wants to build up some suspense before giving the particulars of what he did here ...

it is converted printer cartridges. Instead of normal coloured in in it (red example), it was changed to white. On my monitor it will be red but it will print white. I'm going to use it for these...

That looks great!

... but it's like pulling teeth - lol.

We need more info, where did you get the white ink, and am assuming you used an old coloured cartride and put said ink into it?  Also your printer settings, to ensure only the one colour is printed, do you select b/w, leave as colour setting???

regards,

Jack

for colour setting, I think the best techniq is what I've said earlier on this thread. Since most of the computer/printer wont print white, you have to trick the computer by using black (or any block colour) on you monitor then replace the cartridge with white filled cartridge to print white.

Right, I'm still confused...

You say converted cartridges, which made me think you made your own white cartridge?  The linked product page states that the whie cartridge is available as a separate purchase ...

Anyhow thanks for the heads up, that is a nice machine, but bloody expensive.  I can afford it, but it doesn't make sense for me as  I would only use once or twice a year at most.

regards,

Jack

Mine is a second hand from a shop that is now close. They converted a normal C7111 cartridge into white.

Here is a simple video I've done to show how opaque the white print is.

Interesting. Yes
