Targetted at photographers, fine art printers and professional proofers, these two large format printers use Epson’s newly developed Pro12 inkset with K3 technology which reduced graininess and advanced black & white outout. The standard colours of cyan, magenta and yellow, the inkset includes green, orange and violet and matt and photo black can be used simultaneously. Deeper blacks are possible through an enhancement overcoating technology for even more dramatic results.
