Welcome to a Community
Download and read our new Piezography Manual that shows you how to use these new tools. We built a private support forum for Piezography Professional Edition software Pro, K7, K6, and P2 users. Piezography Professional Edition is extensible. Your support (annual licensing fee) will keep our development front and center and allow us to continually provide you with masterful and knowledgeable product support, new master curves, and upgraded toolsets.
We are also offering a free Community Edition of published curve sets for those who prefer not to try their hand in the mystical nature of curve calibration, or who do not own or prefer not to invest in a spectrophotometer. But, we also include tools that allow you to use your eye or a scanner to make these linearizations. You do not need to buy Piezography Professional Edition software to use the new Piezography Pro inks.
The upcoming Piezography Pro Ink Pre-Sale
Our plan is to have a pre-sale on Oct 18 to offer Piezography Pro ink sales to our current customers. The pre-sale will be a special offer and will be an unpublished URL. We will deliver these pre-sale systems beginning on Nov 17 first-come-first-served. On Nov 17, we will begin taking orders from new customers with delivery either in November or in January if our pre-sale consumes the first batch of Piezography Pro ink.
The new ink is the heart and soul of Piezography Pro. It is the first ink that we have both spec’d and then batch formulated in our Vermont ink sampling lab. And we’re going to try and keep producing it that way. Small batches will allow us to more readily develop new ink designs in the future. Piezography Pro is 100% Made in Vermont small batch goodness!
Piezography Pro is being released for the Epson R2880, R3000, 3800, 3880, 4800, 4880, 4900, 7800, 7880, 7890, 7900, 9800, 9880, 9890, and 9900 printers as well as limited support for the 11880. The Epson R1900 and R2000 will be added later in 2017. As we initially reported and according to Epson, the SureColor P-800 and larger printers are designed to “work only with Epson brand carts”. There are reports of refillable cartridge users being locked out of their printer after a P-800 refillable cartridge resets its chip for the first time. We will not be supporting these models until there is a better solution than is currently available.
TIP: We recommend sourcing a free Epson Pro 4900, 7900, or 9900 printer with one or two missing channels to run the dual/quad Piezography Pro. A single missing channel is very common with Epson inks. Piezography inks perform really well in Epson 4900, 7900 and 9900 printers. PiezoFlush can usually recover missing channels. Look locally for one that has not sat for more than a few months. Many people are more than happy to have someone come and cart it down stairs for free. We’ve obtained several printers this way, recovered them with PiezoFlush, and have recycled these donated printers by giving them to education institutions that now have fully functioning Piezography / Digital Negative systems. What better way to get into Piezography Pro than with a free printer.
