The new Stylus Pro 3800 has many of the features available on Epson’s range of large-format printers, including the 4800, 7800 and 9800 models, some of the leading options available for the prepress and proofing markets. The new machine retains Epson’s UltraChrome K3 eight-colour ink set and prints from 4×6 up to A2 in size, retailing at a recommended price of $2195.

Epson is one of the biggest suppliers of ink-jet printers to the prepress, proofing and photographic markets and claims to have sown up more than 70 per cent of the professional photographic market in Australian and NZ. The company launched its UltraChrome K3 series of inks last year and images printed using the ink are displayed in major galleries around the world.

The new Stylus Pro 3800 is targeted for the output of gallery-quality photos for professional and amateur photographers, and colour accurate proofs for design studios and printing companies. Epson says it is also effective for use with enlargements for photo studios and photographic stores.

The colour management options of the 3800 have also been improved, offering better colour saturation and allowing greater definition of colour gradation between midtones and shadows.
