This is everything you need in one kit for printing both matte and glossy/baryta Neutral K7 prints on the Epson 3880. You get refillable carts with filling syringes, 110ml bottles of ink. You will need to supply a set of OEM chips (which can be new or be used) to install into the refillable carts. Please follow the instructions on the Instructions tab.
Piezography Neutral ink set was designed to be achromatic to the human visual system when printed on a very specific color of white paper: Hahnemuhle Photo Rag. When viewed under full spectrum 5000k a photograph on this paper will appear to be neutral. JonCone Studio Type 2 will print warmer.

Because the inks are neutral they will pick up the tone of any paper white and shift in that direction. A wide range of color tone is possible in this manner. The end result is a perfect marriage of ink and paper. A perfect monotone is produced.

Neutral inks are both matte and glossy compatible. For matte use with Piezography K7 shade 1 matte black. For Glossy including baryta use with shade 1 photo black and Piezography Gloss Overprint.

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. Piezography Neutral inks are based upon carbon - with the addition of other fade resistant pigments to counter the warmth of the carbon. As a result, the ink should not be allowed to sit for long periods of time. All inks should be periodically shaken. Neutral will take on a cooler cast if allowed to sit in the bottle or in the printer for long periods of time. It takes only a few seconds to gently shake and resuspend all of the carbon and color pigments again to form a uniform neutral appearance.
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.
