[OM] B&W printing

For many years, I've been using Paul Roarke's "Black Only" (BO) printing on an Epson 1800 printer with MIS Eboni ink in three of the print heads and Quadtone RIP software.  Because of some home renovations, the printer was in storage for several months. I'm now setting the printer back up and de-clogging the heads.  This is probably a good time to ask how viable this way of printing is in the long term.

So, what do you folks do for black and white printing?  I long ago found that for color prints, Costco does a great job with my full-resolution sRGB JPG files as long as I specified "Do not correct."  I've never tried them for B&W.  I don't print enough to justify a high-capacity printer like the Epson 3000 or its newer relatives. I don't use Adobe software, so Photoshop-specific procedures won't help me.  I use Capture One and Picture Window Pro.  Presently, I don't sell my prints, I just look at them and put a few up on my wall.

All advice happily considered.  Thanks!
