Epson Stylus Pro 3880
New 17-inch printer replaces the popular Stylus Pro 3800
- Auto-switching Black Inks: The Epson Stylus Pro 3880 automatically switches between Photo and Matte black inks to produce the deepest blacks and richest color on glossy, matte or fine art media.
- Professional Cut-Sheet Media Handling: This printer provides broad media support with BorderFree™ cut-sheet media handling from 4”x6” to 17” x 22”. The high-capacity paper feeder is designed for photographic weight papers, while the top-loading single-sheet feeder is optimized for fine art media. Also, the front loading straight-through path accommodates art board up to 1.5 mm thick.
- Intelligent High-Capacity Ink System: Nine individual 80 ml ink cartridges with pressurized ink technology ensures reliable ink delivery at all print speeds.
- Epson PreciseColor™ Manufacturing: This rigorous process evaluates and adjusts each printer’s performance at the manufacturing stage to ensure consistent color output, eliminating the need for internal calibration devices.
For additional proofing and graphic needs, the Epson Stylus Pro 3880 is also available in a Graphic Arts Edition featuring a PANTONE®-licensed ColorBurst® Raster Image Processor and powerful print manager interface. This model delivers reliable color accuracy and advanced workflow control with built-in PANTONE colors featuring coated and uncoated libraries for versatile spot-color matching, and integrated ICC profiles for RGB, CMYK and grayscale images ensure complete color control.
