Instructions & More InfoHow to Use our Bottles How to Use Piezography About Piezography Special Edition
Set 8 (matte only) is a Piezography ink set for printers with at least 8 color positions where only matte printing is desired. These printers include the Epson R1800, R1900, R2000, R2400, R2880, Pro 4800, Pro 4880, Pro7800, Pro 9800, Pro 7880, Pro 9880. The entire ink set is dedicated to matte printing. It includes the matte black shade 1, and shades 2-7. PiezoFlush is the 8th "ink" and is intended to be installed in the unused 8th position of an 8 ink printer that is using only 7 inks. This unused position is the LLK slot. Gloss Overprint and Photo Black is not included in this ink set and therefore non-matte papers should not be printed. These include baryta, semi-matte, semi-gloss, F-Type, gloss and film.
Piezography2 ink sets are an alternative for 8 ink channel printers in which both matte and glossy printing are possible.
This ink set is not PiezoDN compatible.
This set can be used in printers with 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.
Special Edition inks recipe as provided in the set:
Shade 1 = Piezography shade 1 matte black or photo black
Shade 2 = Carbon shade 2
Shade 3 = 75% Carbon Shade 3 and 25% Selenium Shade 3
Shade 4 = 50% Carbon Shade 4 and 50% Selenium Shade 4
Shade 5 = Selenium shade 5
Shade 6 = Neutral shade 6
Shade 7 = Neutral shade 7
Special Edition on Canson Rag Photographique
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.
You get eight bottles of ink including matte black, shades 2-7 of the Special Edition ink set, and a bottle of PiezoFlush for the "unused" position in your eight ink printer.
