Create black-and-white prints with better tonalities and detail with InkjetMall's new Piezography Neutral K7 Black and White ink set. The set now incorporates seven dilutions of gray pigments, and because they're all used at the same time, the result is a print that has smoother tonal transitions and increased detail in shadow areas. It's designed for use with the Epson Stylus Photo 2200 and supports the Epson Stylus Pro 4000 and 7600 printers. List Price: $17 (per cartridge); $119 (set of all seven).
