    Epson Redefines Fine Art Reproduction.

    Not to bump an old thread, but has anyone taken delivery of a P20000 yet? Our 11880 had died early in March, so we figured we may as well wait a month and upgrade rather than buy another 11880. We placed the P20000 order (in mid March) with an expected delivery in late April, and we still don't...

    Fuji Acuity expired ink override...

    Does anyone know how to override the chip in the ink bags that tell the printer the ink has expired? We have a decent volume of work, but sometimes not enough to finish off an ink before it expires. I also ask because lately we've been receiving inks with an expiration date that's only 4-6...

    Wide Format Acuity HD Advanced Banding

    Just last week I noticed banding on a plastic substrate, but the twist is the banding didn't occur where I had wiped the material with a cleaner. I wiped some junk off, then buffed the area with a microfiber cloth, and when I hit it with a print, the banding stopped on the cleaned area...

    Stuck in the caldera transitions module...

    Thanks for this! I don't own the Caldera RIP software, so I've passed this off to my friend so he could register and grab the manual. I did notice streaks from initial passes on the swatches, and assumed that could be the reason for the misread verification pass, but wasn't sure how to turn it...

    Stuck in the caldera transitions module...

    I use efi fiery XF at work, but swung by a friends business last night with my i1Publish kit to help him build a few profiles for his new setup. I forget the exact model number, but it was an HP laytex printer driven by Caldera VisualRIP. I fired up EasyMedia, and right out of the gate I got...

    Epson SureColor

    We use PDF/X for consistency across devices when a job has multiple parts. The banners at an event "match" the handouts, which "match" the signage they rest on (so long as the output device has an equal or larger gamut than gracol, and if not, it's still close). All of our staff's color settings...

    Epson 9900 life...

    We use the efi fiery xf with two 9900's, one 11880, and an S70670. The 9900's are about 2 years old, and still look and run like they're brand new. Our Z6100's were a nightmare for their entire life span. Awful support, they were always on the fritz, and the insides were coated with ink after...

    Epson SureColor

    I'm not Mike, but I've never noticed a difference. It seems that the rip always just streams data to the printer regardless. We've had HP DesignJets with onboard PS rips, and without, and there was no difference between them performance wise that I could tell. We've used various quantities of...

    Epson SureColor

    Actually, I recall using this (preflight), but the only part that was a bummer was having to open it in a separate "app", manipulate, then send it to the queue, and then back to preflight for any more edits, etc. We did know it was there (used for tiling, etc), but all the round trips and layers...

    Epson SureColor

    So I finally got around to it. Looks like I can take advantage of the metallic and white inks. I just need to define which spots to mix them with. I imagine we'd only use a select few colors, but either way, hopefully I can just build a library and reference it when we get files that call for...

    Foldable fabric for inkjets and eco solvent

    Can anyone recommend a great fabric for printing large images (36 or 48x96") that can be folded, traveled with in suitcases, and then displayed with little permanent creasing? Something that would also display sharp text and images, and have good color reproduction? Thanks. jesse

    Epson SureColor

    In a PDF/X3 file that has various elements, each graphic within can have it's own rendering intent. I don't know the science behind all of this, all I know is when it comes to PDF/X files, the efi can do what the onyx couldn't. I suggest you look into the Altona Test Suite. It's built to show...

    Epson SureColor

    Oh, one more thing came to mind. It's been years, so maybe my memory is a bit fuzzy, but I recall that the onyx would rip a file when it was imported. Another reason we liked the Fiery XF was it would import a job, and before it would process the file it would allow us to manipulate it. Then...

    Epson SureColor

    Not at all. (Sorry, this is long) We used Onyx ProductionHouse for years. From around 2004 - 2009. Around 2006 we began going to conferences and classes around the country to get a grip on color management. Mostly out of curiosity, but also because we'd had some complaints about various images...

    Aqueous alternative...

    We've been using "Fab 6" (woven polyester) on our Epson 9900's. The end result looks good, the only problem is these are trade show posters, and the clients want to be able to fold them up and bring them in their carry on luggage, but the material creases and doesn't look so hot once unfolded...
