About Piezography Pro Inks
Piezography Pro does not use color ink to print black & white photography. Instead, the color inks of a supported Epson printer are replaced with our Piezography Pro inks. Piezography Pro inks are different than Piezography K7 inks. Where K7 monochromatic ink sets can only print one color tone per set (Neutral, Carbon, Warm Neutral, Selenium or Special Edition), Piezography Pro ink set is designed to produce one million different color tone combinations. Pieography Pro inks are manufactured from pure carbon to which warm or cool pigments are added. The pigments are chosen for their fade-resistance and are available in eight or ten progressively lighter shades of black.
Piezography Pro has both cool and warm shades
We created both warm and cool shades of Piezography Pro ink that are simultaneously installed into one printer. The ink set is available as a dual quad or a dual quint set depending upon your printer model. The cool and warm shades are designed to be blended together in our proprietary process so that at least 7 different shades are interacting and printing producing tens of thousands of gray levels. The cool and warm shades share one Matte Black, a super High-Density Photo Black, and a new type of Gloss Chroma Optimizer.
You can read how these two ink sets are blended here.
Which Piezography Pro Ink set is right for you?
PIEZOGRAPHY PRO "SET 8 MATTE" FOR EPSON R1900, R2000, R2400, R2880, 4800, 4880, 7800, 7880, 9800, and 9880 printers
Because these printers do not readily switch between MK and PK ink, this matte set includes Ultra HD-MK ink and PiezoFlush for the final unused channel, with 3 cool grey and 3 warm grey inks. To switch to the Gloss printing in the future you need to buy the Piezography Pro HD-PK ink and Gloss Chroma Optimizer and do a purge of the PK and LLK channels.
PIEZOGRAPHY PRO "SET 8 GLOSSY" FOR EPSON R1900, R2000, R2400, R2880, 4800, 4880, 7800, 7880, 9800, and 9880 printers
Because these printers do not readily switch between MK and PK ink, this glossy set includes PK ink and Gloss Chroma Optimizer with 3 cool grey and 3 warm grey inks. To switch to the Matte printing in the future you only need to buy the Piezography Pro Ultra HD-MK ink and do a black-ink switch on the printer.
The small format printers in this class are a very cost-effective way to get started with Pro printing.
PIEZOGRAPHY PRO "SET 9 Matte and Glossy" FOR EPSON R3000, 3800, 3880, 7890, & 9890 PRINTERS
These printers have 8 functional ink channels with 9 actual ink positions. They have a Matte-Black/Photo-Black ink switcher.
These printers also all have pressurized ink cartridges even in the small-format size of the R3000. This is very important for heavy production users!
PIEZOGRAPHY PRO SET 11 FOR EPSON 4900, 7900, 9900 PRINTERS
These modern printers have 10 functional ink channels and 11 actual ink positions with a Matte-Black/Photo-Black switcher. We are adding two very light grays to this set to accommodate all available ink positions. K10 improves the highlights over the K8 Pro sets and is additionally suited for PiezoDN digital negative printing. This set includes matte and glossy printing.
