Introducing the Epson Stylus Pro 3800 / 3880

Designed from the beginning to exceed all expectations, the Epson Stylus Pro 3800 / 3880 incorporates an all-new, 17-inch wide printer design, along with a radical new photographic screening technology. And, when it is combined with our breakthrough Epson UltraChrome K3™ Ink, it will deliver your creative vision without compromise.

Epson UltraChrome K3 Ink technology has produced some of the world’s greatest images. Inspired by our past generations of pigmented ink, Epson UltraChrome K3 incorporates a three-level Black, along with new color pigments, to dramatically raise the bar for professional color and blackand- white prints. The standard has been set.

Even more remarkable, our latest high performance, one-inch wide print head now incorporates a new Auto-sharing Black Ink technology, allowing both Photo and Matte Black ink to be installed simultaneously. Capable of handling virtually any type of cut-sheet media up to 17 inches wide, the Epson Stylus Pro 3800 / 3880 incorporates a high-capacity paper feeder that can accommodate sizes from 4x6 up to 17x22. Continuing to set standards in media flexibility, we’ve developed various ways of loading media, including a front-loading, straight-through path capable of handling media up to 1.5 mm thick and even a second, top-loading, single-sheet feeder optimized for fine art papers.

Imagine producing archival prints with amazing color fidelity, gloss-level and scratch resistance, while providing consistently stable colors that significantly outperform lesser ink technologies. Imagine producing professional neutral and toned black-and-white prints with higher density levels and virtually no metamerism or bronzing.

The Epson Stylus Pro 3800 / 3880 represents a level of imaging technology unprecedented in Epson’s history. The extreme precision of an Epson Stylus Pro print engine, along with the extraordinary performance of Epson Ultra- Chrome K3 Ink, results in your image being masterfully printed, without any signs of how it was produced. Prepare to be inspired all over again.

Welcome to the future of print head technology

8-channel print head with Auto-sharing Black Ink technology

» Innovative, new print head design allows for all nine inks to be installed simultaneously

» Without any user intervention, the printer automatically switches between Photo and Matte Black ink while utilizing the same physical ink channel

» Produces extremely fine, photographic prints, even in bi-directional and lower resolution print modes » Compensates for various ink densities between resolutions — allowing for a single ICC profile to be used per media type

Advanced MicroPiezo® AMC™ print head technology

» Virtually eliminates the metamerism and bronzing of pigmented ink
