That brand doesn't mean anything to me. Of late I've used a lot of
Dick Blick inks and they worked fine. What surprises me is that you
and many teachers on this list don't teach in districts with central
warehouse bulk ordering to save money. My budget would never stretch
if I had to order basic supplies from vendors direct. They only give
you 10-20 % off list.
