I have an Epson Stylus Photo R2880. This printer has two types of black ink. One for glossy papers, and one for matte papers.
There is not room for both in the printer - they both share the same slot - so I have to remove the one, if I need to use the other. So far I have not used the matte black yet, but I guess I should if I would like printing on matte papers to be at its best quality.
But that leads to the question which I can't seem to see being addressed in the manual. How to handle the ink that is not currently on the printer. I would need to remove the glossy black ink. How should I store it? Wouldn't it dry out? Can ink leak from the cartridge?
