Save money with individual inks
Epson’s individual ink cartridge system means you only ever need to replace the colour used. Since you won’t have to buy a whole new set of inks every time one colour is used up, this saves you money.
Cut bills and environmental impact
Qualified by ENERGY STAR, the SX218’s excellent power efficiency helps you reduce your energy bills and your impact on the environment.
Easily edit scanned text
Save time and effort with the included ABBYY FineReader™ OCR software, which allows you to easily edit any text you’ve scanned.
Dependable printing with Micro Piezo technology
Epson’s Micro Piezo printhead technology gives you reliable, high-quality results that can’t be matched.
Micro Piezo works by running an electric charge through piezoelectric elements, causing their shape to change. This creates a pressure wave that propels the ink. Thermal-type inkjets used by Epson’s competitors work by heating the ink, which causes it to expand and move through the nozzle to be fired onto the paper.

The fundamental problem with thermal inkjet technology is that it’s less robust. The ink has to survive extreme conditions, and the heater is prone to burning out. Boiling ink can cause residue deposits on the element, and over time, this means the printer becomes less efficient.
Avoiding all these pitfalls, Micro Piezo operates at room temperature, offering greater ink stability and delivering perfect control over the size and placement of each ink droplet.
And, as the Micro Piezo printhead is a permanent part of the print system, unlike other manufacturers’ printheads, it is one less consumable to dispose of.
Clearer, longer-lasting prints with DURABrite Ultra Ink
Epson DURABrite Ultra Ink is an advanced pigment-based ink technology that encapsulates ink particles in a protective resin coating. This makes the ink resistant to water, smudging and fading.
The benefits include greater durability and dramatically less bleed-through than conventional dye-based inks.
DURABrite Ultra delivers laser-like text and glossy photos, which last over 200 years* when stored in a photo album.
