For many years, I've been using Paul Roarke's "Black Only" (BO) printing on an

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?

Hi Peter (fellow Seattleite),

I've been using my Epson 3880 using ABW for quite a while and am always 
impressed with the B&W output. It's as close to my old days of silver Agfa 
output as I've seen.

Locally, I would definitely try the Costco down on First Ave. or the one up at 
Aurora Village. I'm assuming that if you use Costco, you are using the Dry 
Creek printer profiles, they have very current ones for both Fuji Crystal 
Archive as well as an Epson 7890 (which is news to me). I'd call them (or drop 
by) and talk to them about whether they need info to mark the print as B&W.


I'd also be happy to print one off at my house.
