Disclosed is a means for bundling fluids in a Thermal Ink Jet (TIJ) Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU). The TIJ process requires the use, replenishment, and waste disposal of ink and maintenance fluid. Bundling of the ink supply, the maintenance fluid supply, and the waste fluid supply into a single CRU offers a novel approach to an important customer interface.
