This Seattle Framing Company Is Going Big with the Epson P20000

Mary Song of the Seattle-based NW Art + Framing knows a thing or two about printing. A photographer and print coordinator, she oversees the fulfillment of custom and commercial orders for a variety of clients throughout the Northwest. In fact, the company handles printing for three sets of stores, which include the flagship NW Art + Framing, Frame Central, Museum Quality Framing and Beard’s Framing.

“Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we’ll fulfill 10,000 orders,” Song says. “We get 150-foot custom rolls, and we’ll go through four of them a day.”

That’s a lot of media for fine and framed art, metal prints, canvas and much more. To handle the workload, the facility houses nine printers, mostly Epson, including the recent purchase of the Epson SureColor P20000 64-inch printer, pictured above in action.

“The P20000 is helpful for large canvas and art prints,” Song says. “We have a demand for it, and everyone is going larger.”

The demand, she says, was specifically for large fine art, coated prints that weren’t latex-specific. The P20000 was specifically designed for high-production photographic and fine art printing with all new UltraChrome PRO inks, including four levels of grays. To ensure the color reproduction was up to par, Song but it through a rigorous test: her own work.

“As a photographer, I didn’t trust people to print for me,” Song says. “When we got the P20000 in, the first image I printed was one of mine, so I could see how good it was. The definition in the images was fantastic. The image has sepia tones, which is difficult to print, but right out of the box without profiles, it was spot-on. I couldn’t be happier.”

Since Song started with NW a year and a half ago, the company has doubled the number of its printers in effort to bring all print jobs in-house. “We really wanted to get the profit inside our building,” she says. That also meant that she and her team had to work faster, which was another selling point for the P20000.

“We needed a faster turn-around time, and this machine is faster,” she says. After considering some other less-expensive, older-model printers on the market, she chose to go with the P20000. “I said: If we’re going to invest in new technology, let’s invest in what’s the newest, not something that would be outdated within a few years.”

The company is also considering purchasing a SureColor P10000 44-inch printer, which uses the same ink set as the P20000, which will save on storage space and maintenance, she says, as well as delivering the consistency she expects. “Nothing beats Epson’s color or quality,” Song says. “Epson is by far one of the best printer companies out there.”

First Take: Epson SureColor S60600 Solvent Printer Review

Overview_S60

By Michael Clementi

As I’m writing this review, my mind continues to be blown just thinking about what I’ve witnessed: An eco-solvent printer that can harness incredible speed (up to 550 square-feet per hour) and quality while using only a dual CMYK ink set. Further than that, I’ve never seen a printer that can print two-pass or four-pass modes without a single ounce of banding throughout a full-color graphic … until now.

So now that I’ve wet your whistle a bit on some of the juicy details, I can underline for you what the fine people at Epson have done to bring a new revolutionary printer to the outdoor printing industry, namely the SureColor S60600.

The P20000: Epson’s Newest Photographic Printer

Early this year, Epson announced the all-new SureColor P20000, which replaced the Epson Stylus Pro 11880. The new printer, designed for high-volume photo and fine-art production, is the latest in the SureColor line.

The aqueous printer is equipped with newly developed inks — the Epson UltraChrome PRO nine-color ink set, with four levels of grey for less grain noise as well as excellent transitions and blends at high production speed printing. The added greys reduce bronzing and deliver exceptional black-and-white printing. Also, the black pigments are 1.5 times denser than previous inks and the set includes the newest generation of yellow pigment technology.

In addition to the new inks, the P20000 has the all-new 2.6-inch wide Epson PrecisionCore MicroTFP print head, with extreme dot placement accuracy and the capability to print up to 2,400 x 1,200 dpi resolution.

The advanced media handling system allows the P20000 to handle both roll media with 2- or 3-inch cores as well as cut sheet media, making it the ideal photo printer for media from 17-inches to 64-inches wide. The P20000 can even handle poster board substrates up to 1.5mm thick. You can also purchase an option automatic take-up reel system for unattended printing.
