When I think back to my own time in primary school, I remember school yard games and music, plays, arts and crafts, cooking and excursions, but I most certainly don’t remember homework. Times have changed a lot since then and at just 5 and 7 years old our three students, as young as they are, are bringing home homework every day. You’d think they are not too keen on all this studying but to our big surprise they love it! Not only do they finish their homework as soon as they come back from school, they even ask me for more!
Back in the day this would have required a trip to the local library and a whole jar of 10 cent coins for the photocopier, luckily these days there are plenty of online resources available. In just a few clicks I can select math sheets, tracing activities, spelling exercises, crafty projects, colouring pages and more to print at home, easy peasy. The only problem with printing-at-home is that the printer always seems to be out of ink right when you need it…
The printing specialists at Epson understand how annoying it is to run out of ink, which is why they have developed the revolutionary Epson EcoTank range. Epson EcoTank printers are designed to fulfil all your printing needs (wireless black & white, colour or photo printing, copying and scanning) and come with up to 2 years worth of ink. You read it right: TWO YEARS of printer ink is included, that means you can set up your new printer, forget all about it and print as you please.
Not only does the EcoTank concept save you the inconvenience of running out of ink and the time and hassle of regularly replacing expensive ink cartridges, it also saves you money in the long run by being able to refill the high capacity ink tanks using great low-cost Epson ink bottles (RRP $16.99). Priced at RRP $449 – $599 an Epson EcoTank printer is a fantastic cost-effective investment for both home and office use.
This week alone we have used our Epson EcoTank Expression ET-2550 (RRP $499) to print extra homework for the twins, colouring pages for miss 3, sight words cards for miss 5, a family photo to take to show-and-tell and passport applications for the whole family; so easy and no more worries about running out of ink half-way or ‘saving’ ink for an emergency. Aside from the refillable tankstation on the side the printer is the same size as a regular printer so you get a lot more value for a little extra space.
For our EcoTank ET-2550 the ‘2 years of ink’ promise is based on an average monthly print volume of about 150 pages or a total of 4,000 pages in black and 6,500 pages in colour. Knowing our prints are such excellent value I will be able to say ‘Yes’ more often when the kids ask me to print them yet another sheet, and I will finally be able to print off all the recipes I have been storing on my computer. Later in the year we’ll be taking the kids out of school for 5 weeks to visit Europe so I’ll be putting the printer to good use then by making each child a personalised holiday-schooling pack, very exciting.
Good to know: As you all know I am a sucker for a generous warranty period, this Epson EcoTank immediately comes with a 12-month Return to Base warranty and by registering your purchase online you receive an additional 12 months bonus warranty. That’s great peace of mind!
