Piezography K6, Carbon Tone, 60ml, Set of 6 Inks (HD matte only)Carbon
Piezography Carbon K6 ink set for matte printing. This kit includes the new Ultra HD™ matte black for up to 1.84 optical density! Click on detailed description for more information.
Set 6 (HD matte only) is a Piezography ink set for printers with 6 ink positions where only matte printing is desired. These printers include the Epson 1400, 1430, and 1500W. The entire ink set is dedicated to matte printing. It includes the matte black shade 1, and shades 2-6.
However, this set includes the new Ultra HD™ Matte Black that increases dMax to the highest in the entire industry. Epson MK and regular Piezography MK can reach no more than 1.64 on the highest quality media. Piezography Pro Ultra HD™ is a new generation of nano-carbon black ink that can reach 1.84 for nearly a full stop increase in dynamic range!
Because the 1430 is so inexpensive, and the results of this ink set are so amazing - this is one of our most exciting Piezography releases. Ultra HD™ matte black is crazy dark. It is the darkest matte black ink offered by anyone and this includes all OEMs and all other 3rd party suppliers. You will not have seen matte black & white photographs with this level of dMax.
This is a new ink set for the 1430 family of 6 ink printers that we are releasing at the end of 2017. We have fully profiled these printers and the new profiles that include the Ultra HD are now in the Commuity Edition of Piezography software which you can download here. Further, we have included Master Curves for this ink/printer combo which means that you can purchase Piezography Professional Edition software to make your own media curves.
Piezography Carbon has the distinction of being the most lightfast ink ever tested at the Aardenburg Image Archives. It is the only ink set that is outpacing all HP, Canon and Epson inks. Piezography Carbon is literally unaffected by long-term exposure to light. It should be. It's carbon. However, we consider it to be over-the-top in terms of fade-resistance. Because all Piezography ink sets are super fade-resistant, we beleive that you should choose this because you love warm prints!
Carbon K7 on JonCone Studio Type 2
Carbon's warmth can be cooled by printing on cooler white papers. JonCone Studio Type 2 is probably the best paper to print Carbon on for matte. But, you'll have to find your tone that you prefer by testing on different paper whites.
Carbon K7 on Epson Exhibition Fiber
Carbon inks are perfectly formulated (one shade at a time) so that the color tone *ab values are very close from shade to shade which results in a very linear, photographic warmth.It's a very precise way to express a Carbon photograph without the illusion used by color inks. It is very monochromatic (yet toned.)
Carbon K7on Canson Rag Photographique
Like all Piezography ink sets, this ink is metamerism-free and has an encapsulated pigment particle that is unique amongst all third-party inks and is considered as non-clogging as the OEM. When printing on matte papers, the Shade 1 Mstte Black is used. When printing on non-matte papers (including Baryta papers), the Shade 1 Photo Black is used in conjunction with Piezography Gloss Overprint.
Carbon K7on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag
This ink set is designed to be used with the Piezography media profiles and QuadTone RIP. Please see the Instructions tab for a full explanation of its use.You can expect to reach a dMax of 1.65 on matte papers such as JonCone Studio Type2 and Hahnemuhle Photo Rag. When glossy printing according to our directions you can reach dMax levels as high as 2.80. Piezography Glossy produces a finish in which you will not be able to tell where the inks end and the paper begins. When used as directed, it produces a uniform surface without any gloss differential nor bronzing.
This ink set can also produce the highest standard digital negatives with the optional PiezoDN software. Using multiple shades of black ink produces tens of thousands of more gray levels than when using color inks to produce digital negatives. You'll benefit by the same higher acuity, smoothness of tone, and shadow and highlight detail that Piezography inks give to printing. With PiezoDN software, you can expand the the dynamic range of your medium in the same way Piezography expands the dynmaic range of fine black & white printmaking.
You get a set of six bottles of ink including the new Ultra HD™ matte black, five additional shades of black ink.
