Epson 7900/9900 considerations

An Opinion Ouch! The Epson 7900 and 9900 printers are taking a beating in the User Forums. There is a lot of talk about quickly expiring print heads that do not last the life of the warranty or expire just after the warranty. Further, a lot of users of these printers are reporting that they need a lot of Epson service tech visits to get the printers running after they’ve just been installed. Our experience mirrors that in which our brand new Epson 7900 required two Epson technician visits to replaced circuit boards and print heads. One print head...

Something extreme

I’ve been printing on this paper continuously ever since. I’m having somewhat of a love affair with it. Each sheet is an object. Actually, each sheet is carefully inspected and measured for weight and then carefully tagged at it’s corner as a guarantee of content.

Say hello to our newest cart for Epson 7890/9890 & 7900/9900

Say hello to our newest new cart which we have made to our own specs. As I have said before, All China made carts look alike. But, when you actually begin to dissect them and compare them they are all quite different in many ways. Sometimes it is so very obvious that it is surprising you may have missed it. And sometimes it’s in the details. So this new cart we’ve compiled features components from three factories. We’re also releasing this cart for our new second generation of ConeColorPRO inks. You can read about them here. The casing and internal components are made of very heavy PP which is expertly welded and fitted. Most of the China made carts are glued. The chip is from our same source which we used to outfit the new R3000 carts. And this cart features an internal bag that holds the ink and keeps it separate from the air supply so that the possibility of contamination to the printer’s air supply is eliminated. Even ink bags are not all made alike.   Although it’s bag filled, it is still a funnel fill cart. The ink goes into a heavy bag that is suspended inside the funnel fill cart. The ink supply is isolated from the air-pressure that the printer pushes into the cart. These printers require that the ink is pressurized so that...

Try Piezography inks in your desktop printer

We had several requests recently from customers who wanted to try the Piezography Carbon inks. They had recently read two interesting discussions on the Large Format Photography Forum between Sandy King and Mark McCormick-Goodhart who is the director of the Aardenburg Imaging & Archives (the leading inks/media longevity testing facility for fine artists and photographers.) Those discussions are (Permanence of non-carbon/sepia Piezography) and Jon Cone on Carbon Piezography. While we haven’t quite made the announcement that All Piezography Ink Sets are NOW Matte and Glossy compatible – these try me kits on 8 position printers are matte and glossy compatible....
