Should I use CISS or refillable cartridge kit?
Last Updated: 10/24/2019
CISS is more convenient and holds more ink, however, it is more complex in terms of regular maintenance and possibility of getting banding from poor ink vacuum. Irregardless of your choice of using a CIS or not, you should start with refillable carts and then use them as a backup in case your CIS has trouble. If your CIS is suspect then popping in known good refillable carts helps you troubleshoot, not to mention you can still keep printing if the CIS is not working.

For sublimation printing, if you just started, we recommend you start with refillable cartridge kit first.
