Yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings,
paper type, frequency of use, and temperature. For print quality, a
small amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the “replace

them thoroughly with soap and
water. If ink gets into your eyes,
flush them immediately with
water. Keep ink cartridges out
