Welcome Epson’s Next-Gen SureColor P-Series Printers

It’s been a while in the making, but this week Epson announced four new printers in its SureColor P-Series, which are the replacements for the Stylus Pro 7890, 7900, 9890 and 9900 printers. They will be available for shipping in October 2015.

These new machines have been upgraded with all new reformulated ink, the UltraChrome HD (or HDX) for higher dMax, wider color gamut and increased print longevity.

Another important improvement is the user-selectable auto-cleaning schedule to keep those print heads in good health. Users can set the self-cleaning mode for anywhere from every six hours to every 60 hours. A new ink-repellent coating on the print heads will also help to keep nozzle clogging issues to a minimum.

The new Epson SureColor P6000 and P8000 replace the 7890 and 9890 printers. At 24-inches and 44-inches, respectively, these machines have the upgraded eight-color pigment ink set, making them ideal for designers, commercial printers and photographers.

The new Epson SureColor 24-inch P7000 and 44-inch P9000 replace the 7900 and 9900 printers. Designed for professional proofing and photographic use, they have the Epson PrecisionCore TFP print head and the 10-color UltraChrome HDX pigmented ink set.

Photographers are served well with the standard ink set that includes light-light black to ward off bronzing. Professional proofers needing top-of-the-line color-matching ability can opt for the all new optional violet color, which Epson says offers 99-percent PANTONE® FORMULA GUIDE solid coated color-matching. Violet is available in the P7000 Commercial and P9000 Commercial options.

    • Thanks for your interest in our blog and your question about the P6000. We directly manufacture our own Sunset canvas solutions that are compatible with the P6000, as well as Epson brand solutions. I would have a discussion with one of our sales support representatives about your options, and they can discuss differences in textures, types of finishes and narrow the answer down based on your needs. For inks, I highly recommend sticking with the OEM Certified inks by Epson since they are manufactured to a certain quality spec that a lot of 3rd party manufacturers can’t touch. A representative will be in touch with you shortly to go over your options!

  2. We are interested in printing onto polyester and potential fiberglass insect screen material. do you have any experience in printing on material that has the open weave like an insect screen/ Please e-mail me with your suggestions.
