2. Quoted yields are extrapolated based on the ISO/IEC 29103 pattern with Epson’s methodology printing 10x15cm photos, and NOT based on ISO/IEC 29102. Quoted yields may vary depending on the images that you are printing, paper type that you are using, frequency of your prints and environmental conditions such as temperature. During the initial printer setup, a certain amount of ink is used to fill the print head’s nozzles, therefore the yield of the initial bundled set can be lower.
