This guide is for setting up Epson printers to use Paper Saver ink on a Mac.  You will install the printer and create a Preset for  “Paper Saver” with settings for self-erasing ink.

Paper Saver Setup

For printing with Paper Saver self-erasing ink we want the printer to use only the Paper Saver ink in the Black tank.  If we set the printer to Black & White and the Media Type to “Plain Paper” (or anything but “Photo”) th printer will use only regular ink. 

Select “Black and White”.

Select Media & Quality” and then select “Plain Paper” as the Media Type.

Click on “Presets” and select “Save Current Settings as a Preset…”

Enter the name “PAPER SAVER” and click “OK”

Setup is now complete!  You can start printing now but we recommend visiting the “Tips & Ticks” section to make your first experience better.
