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 Warm Neutral is the "original Coca Cola" of Piezography. When we first introduced Piezography in 2000, we introduced it with PiezographyBW Warm Neutral ink. Later in 2002, we vastly improved our ink chemistry and introduced PiezoTone Warm Neutral. Piezography Warm Neutral K7 was introduced about 2009.

The best way to describe Warm Neutral is that of a warm photographic gray similar to the bromide or just slightly azo greenish surfaces of yesteryear. Warm Neutral allows the strength of the photograph to come through in a way that is very familiar. Like all Piezography inks it can be made to be warmer or cooler depending upon the paper that it is printed on.

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 Neutral K7 Shade 1 black is used. When printing on non-matte papers (including Baryta papers), the MPS Warm Neutral Shade 1 black is used in conjunction with Piezography Gloss Overprint.
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.
The Warm Neutral ink family includes a newly designed shade 1 photo black. We have called this black "opaque" and it is on film. We have called it "very warm" and it is but not with QuadTone RIP. For those who use StudioPrint RIP on supported printers, they can produce a longer black printer that does reveal the warmth of this ink. We have called it "very dense" and it is in fact so dense that some of our customers are reporting that they use it as both a matte black and a photo black without losing dMax on their matte paper prints.
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.
Piezography K7 and K6 inks are compatible with both matte and glossy (including baryta) papers.
- To use with matte papers, the Matte Black shade 1 must be used.
- For printing on glossy or baryta papers, the Photo Black shade 1 must be used.
- After printing on a glossy or baryta media, a second overprint of Piezography Gloss Overprint is requried according to our instructions in order to equalize all gloss differential, bring out shadow detail, and eliminate bronzing.
Piezography inks are intended for use with Piezography .iquad curves and the QuadTone RIP when used as instructed inthe NEW Piezography Manual which can be found in our Instructions tab.
There are many different configurations of ink available according to printer model and your intended use.
If you are buying an optional HD version of an ink set it may require the purchase of Piezography Professional Edition software in order to make your own custom curves. Where this is not mandatory with the Piezography Pro HD Photo Black, it is mandatory with the Piezography Pro Ultra HD Matte Black.
Please review the detailed description to make certain you are buying a system according to your intentions and needs.
