Changing Ink Type Selection in PrintMate

The below article will cover changing the Ink Type selection in PrintMate. This can be useful if you have incorrectly selected the ink type when adding the printer during setup or are getting an Ink Type Required to Print message.


When you initially add your printer in PrintMate under Devices, you will be prompted to select the ink type. If you are unsure on your ink type, remove one of your cartridges from the ink slot in the printer and check the front label. 

If you do not select an ink type after adding the printer, you will get a warning message (Ink Type Required to Print) at the bottom of the Print Settings window and the Print option will be disable.

  2. Choose the printer you wish to select the ink type for and click Choose Ink Type

  3. Make your selection. If you are unsure of the ink type, remove one of your cartridges from your printer and check the front label, then reinsert the cartridge.
