Good morning PT.  Would you happen to know ink that is in a printer already, how long will these generally last when not in use?

I have found that inks in a printer that are not used regularly have a tendency to dry out and foul the print heads...

the machine to work!!!  :(   :blink:   :sick:   :angry:

Opened and in printer, have not tested, but have not had issues, usually the printer will do it's cleaning run and work fine.  Haven't pushed well beyond 2-3 months though.

I seem to recall 8 months.  If they advertise later, I wouldn't risk it.  If something goes wrong, that could be a headache.
