Advantages of DURABrite Ultra Pigment Ink—Enhanced Support for Glossy Papers
Many consumers are looking for a printer that can produce great everyday text documents and photos; with the new
DURABrite Ultra pigment ink, customers get high quality glossy photos without compromising the text and graphic
printing quality on plain paper that DURABrite Ink has been known for. DURABrite Ultra pigment ink offers these new
advantages when printing photos on glossy papers:
1.
Better glossiness: Where previous formulations of DURABrite Ink were optimized mostly for plain and matte
papers and produced good quality photos on glossy papers, the DURABrite Ultra pigment ink now produces
extremely good output on even the best Epson glossy photo papers:
• Epson Ultra Premium Glossy Photo Paper—This "best of breed"
glossy photo paper has a heavier, professional weight with a
smooth, high-gloss finish.
• Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper— This high-gloss paper
makes prints look and feel like a traditional photograph.
• Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper—This media has the
look and feel of true photographic paper, and is ideal for printing
displays or scenic color images. The semigloss finish delivers
beautiful results.
• Epson Premium Luster Photo Paper—This paper with Luster
E surface finish produces vivid, lifelike images that rival those
of traditional silver halide prints, with high saturation and high
D-Max for true photographic reproductions. It is compatible
with the DURABrite Ultra pigment ink when using the Premium
Semigloss Photo Paper driver setting.
• Epson Glossy Photo Paper—This glossy photo paper delivers a
smooth, glossy finish for everyday photos.
2.
Reduced gloss differential: Gloss differential occurs when the
gloss of the paper is different from the gloss of the ink. By using a
new resin formulation, gloss differential with the DURABrite Ultra
pigment ink is reduced and the color gamut is improved.
3.
Reduced metamerism: Metamerism is an effect where colors
appear to be different under dissimilar lighting conditions (such as
natural light and fluorescent light). With the new ink formulation,
metamerism is reduced.
DURABrite Ultra pigment ink has the flexibility to produce high quality
glossy photos as well as superb photos on matte papers. Epson printers
and all-in-one printers with DURABrite Ultra pigment ink all support
BorderFree
printing, too, so your customers can print borderless,
®
frame-ready photos right out of the printer—without trimming or
perforations.
