Never heard of Piezography?


Set 7 (matte only) is a Piezography ink set for printers with at least 7 color positions where only matte printing is desired. These printers include the Epson R2200, Pro 4000, Pro 7600, and Pro 9600. The entire ink set is dedicated to matte printing. It includes the matte black shade 1, and shades 2-7.

This ink set is PiezoDN compatible. But, the Epson R2200, Pro 4000, Pro 7600, and Pro 9600 printers are not supported by PiezoDN

This set can be used in printers with 8, 9 or 11 ink channels in which only 7 ink channels are operable. In this case additional PiezoFlush should be purchased to keep non-operating print head channels from over-heating and affecting adjacent working channels. We offer a Piezography media profile re-mapping service to map out non-operating channels in printers. This allows you to use a printer with permanently clogged channels, or aquire a potentially free printer that is no longer useful to someone printing color.

Piezography Special Edition is a unique ink set specially blended by Jon Cone for split-tone printing. Special Edition inks warm as they get darker in tone. This is the most beautiful ink set Piezography has ever released to the public.

Special Edition on JonCone Studio Type 2


This ink set was influenced by Cone's split-tone printmaking for photographer Gregory Colbert and his Ashes and Snow exhibitions (the Nomadic Museum) which were seen by more than 13 million people.

Special Edition on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag


The Special Edition blend works on the principle that all Piezography inks are intermixable. Cone has always thought that photographers would eventually wish to make their own "blend"; secret or not. As long as the shades are not cross-mixed, any shade can be mixed with the same corresponding shade of another ink set.

This ink set is designed to be used with the Piezography K7 media profiles ("curves") 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.

What's Included

You get seven bottles of ink including matte black, shades 2-7 of the Special Edition ink set.

Compatibility Notes

Piezography K7 and K6 inks are compatible with both matte and glossy (including baryta) papers.

  1. To use with matte papers, the Matte Black shade 1 must be used.
  2. For printing on glossy or baryta papers, the Photo Black shade 1 must be used.
  3. 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.
