This is a Print, Scan Copier machine which is being aimed at the home user.  It utilises Epson Connect which offers versatile but user-friendly printing. This function allows you to print wirelessly from smartphones and tablet PCs from anywhere within the home, and then also to print from anywhere in the world!  By way of emailing documents directly to the printer’s own unique email address.  The other feature is Scan-to-Cloud which enables you to store scanned documents directly in Cloud services. In addition to this the Expression Premium XP-600 is AirPrint and Google Cloud print ready, a must for many users in these changing days .

There is a 6.3cm colour LCD screen with a touch-panel which highlights relevant buttons, helping you through the printing process. Standard PictBridge and memory card allowing you to print direct from your SD card etc. It boasts picture printing features such as duplex printing, dual paper trays and does a 10 x 15 cm photo in 20 Secs and offers high capacity cartridges for your convenience as well as standard sized printer cartridges.

The ink cartridges we have available for the Expression XP-600 are as follows. These are listed on the webpage, standard original Epson cartridges first, then the XL range of the cartridges and then finally at the bottom of the page are the compatible Epson XP-600 ink cartridges, which are all high capacity and guaranteed.

T2621 High capacity Black cartridge – 22ml for the compatible cartridge or 6.2ml for the xl Epson original and 4.7 for the standard black ink cartridge
T2631 expression premium XP-600 photo black ink – 12ml of ink in the comaptible version / 8.7ml xl original or 4.7ml standard.

This printer will also print directly onto suitable CDs and DVDs but I cant quite work it out and  think this is an additional piece required as I don’t think it is supplied in the box, I will update if I find it is in there or where you can buy them from.

    iPrint app guide for Epson printers

    Step by step guide to using the iPrint app on your Epson printer and iPod touch/phone or pad. The app will automatically detect the nearby wireless Epson over Wi-Fi and lets you take control of them with your device.

    Launch Epson iPrint by tapping the Epson iPrint icon.

    1. The Epson iPrint splash screen will be displayed.
    2. Select an available Photo Album to print an image from.
    3. Choose an available image from the selected album.
    4. At this point, no printer is currently selected. Tap the printer icon.
    5. The Select Printer screen displays any available printers.
    6. Tap to select and confirm a printer.

    Epson iPrint preferences

    You can print to a different paper size or layout and adjust the printable area of the image using Epson iPrint. No additional apps or programs are required to print an image from your Apple iPhone or iPod touch.

    1. After you have set up a printer for use in Epson iPrint, choose the image you wish to print as per the instructions above.
    2. Tap the symbol to show the print settings.
    3. In the Settings screen, tap to select the layout type (borderless or with borders) and the paper size.
    4. Select your paper size from the menu and tap Set.
    5. You have the opportunity to adjust the image before printing.
      Image position adjustment allows you to move the position of the image if it is not the same aspect ratio as the selected paper size. This enables you to minimise cropping of an important area of an image and sacrifice less important areas of the image. This may be helpful when printing with the borderless layout setting.
      Tap Print when you are ready to print the image.
    6. The screen will then display the activity icon, this is confirmation that the print job has been sent to the target printer.

    Now that you know how easy it is to use your ipod/iphone with your Epson printer, make sure you don’t get caught short of Epson ink or paper… remember to stock up and have a set of Epson inks in the cupboard ready for your next impromptu printing session.

    Canon ink cartridge options

    Our Canon compatible ink cartridges produce high quality prints, save you money and are very reliable. I can’t compare on the newer range of cartridges yet as we still use the older range of ink cartridges here in the office for the Pixma IP4300, which is still going strong after it must be almost 3 years I think. We have a Brother printer at my feet which prints off the monthly invoices happily enough but as soon as it comes to any sort of advertising material or picture papers we want printed on I will get it ready on the USB flashdrive to take to the Canon printers computer as I know the results will be there with whatever paper I throw at it, as well as undertaking it’s daily processing of the website orders and business day to day running tasks.


    The savings to be made using cheap ink cartridges are not to be ignored, change your ink cartridges even just every 3 months and at this moment in time you would be saving a whopping £202.47...

    • 4 sets compatible Canon ink cartridges with chip on or website at the moment are £44.86
    • 4 sets of Original Canon inkjet cartridges £247.28…
