Featuring Epson UltraChrome HDR White ink technology.
Epson has introduced the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 24-in. Designer Edition, joining the other sizes available in the company’s Designer Edition line. The printer combines the previously introduced Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 with an EFI eXpress WT software RIP to deliver high-resolution packaging mock-ups for graphic-design firms and creative agencies to create in-house mock-ups.
The Designer Edition features Epson UltraChrome HDR White ink technology (derived from a water-based resin particle, so it’s void of known carcinogens, Epson reports), Adobe Postscript interpreter, and an 11-cartridge inkset configured as CYOGc + Vivid Magenta, Vivid Light Magenta, photo black, White, and cleaning (2). It accommodates roll and sheet media up to 1.5-mm thick and prints both color and white ink directly onto clear or metallic media, as well as color-accurate comps, proofs, mock-ups, and prototypes. In addition, the printer’s software is designed to produce accurate spot colors with the included Pantone, DIC, HKS, and TOYO color libraries.
Top resolution is 1400 x 1400 dpi; it can hit a speed of 27 minutes for a 20 x 24-in. proof. Price: $6995.
