Epson 7890 K3 ink

Hi There. Was using the thrift ink and need to switch to the color cone inks. Using the pizo flush to clean lines now. Have a complete set of Epson ink that has never been used. They expired Feb 2014. Are they still OK to use now?
Thanks Richard

Hi Richard,

This is a very good question, that we get asked frequently.

These inks are expired over a year ago, I would not advise using them. This could/will cause clogging in your head from settled, separated pigments that even shaking may not bring back into suspension being over 1 year on the expiration date. Epson advises against use of expired inks to protect your printer, as well as we advise against using expired ink usage, for the very same reason.
