InkjetMall's Piezography Neutral K7 inkset
for Epson printers is designed as a substitute
for UltraChrome inks. The new inkset
offers seven dilutions for smoother tonal
transitions, increased shadow and highlight
details, and a dotless print for superior
back-and-white output, reports the
company. A pure pigment solution, Piezography
Neutral K7 contains no dyes and
works best on matte paper, where it also
offers the best longevity; it is not designed
for printing on glossy paper.

Depending on the inkjet paper the
image is printed on, the inks can appear
neutral, cooler, or warmer. For instance,
the inks appear neutral when printed on
Innova Photo Smooth Cotton, Bradford
Rag Bright White, and Hahnemule Photo
Rag, but cooler (more similar to a Piezo-
Tone Selenium Tone inks) when printed
on Bradford Rag Brilliant White and
Innova FibaPrint. The inks will appear
warmer on paper such as Bradford Rag
Natural White and Innova Cold Press Art.

The Piezography Neutral K7 inkset for
the Epson Stylus Pro 4000, 7600, and
9600 are available in 220-ml cartridges
at $75 each (total of $525 for a full set of
seven). Inksets for the Epson Stylus
Photo R1800/R800, 2200, and 2400,
and the Epson Stylus Pro 4800 and 7800
are planned.
