I had a photographer who uses black ink only in his Epson R1400 ask me if there was an inexpensive way to try Piezography Carbon K6 or K7 in his printer. At the time, we only had a set of 4oz bottles and refillable carts and the cost is over $280. Although this is the equivalent of nearly ten sets of cartridges and quite inexpensive to use, as a try me item – it is difficult to rationalize the expense.
So, we pre-charged a few sets of refillable carts for the Epson R1400, R1800, R1900, R2400 and R2880 printers. We have only a few sets of these available. If you’ve been thinking of Carbon K7 or Carbon K6 and you have an Epson R1400, R2400 or R2880 printer available to you – this is an excellent way to try this unique ink.
“Prudent display conditions can achieve 100+ years of little or no noticeable light-induced fading for all Piezography ink sets” according to Mark McCormick-Goodhart, director of the Aardenburg Imaging & Archives. But out of all ink sets tested from OEMs and other third parties, only the Piezography Carbon ink set can meet the strict Aardenburg 100 megalux criteria in both the upper and lower ranges. If longevity is your most important concern, this is the ink that has no peer. And now you can try it in the Epson R1400 at a nominal cost.
Carbon is warm and it may not be everyone’s taste. If you like very cool prints – then Carbon is not for you. But, Piezography Carbon is so finely ground that it takes on the hue of the paper beneath it. So the ink can be warmed or cooled depending upon your choice of paper white.
