Epson opens up market for in-house proofing
Three new Epson Design Editions deliver proofing one-stop-shop
4th January 2012 – Epson teams up with a leading RIP provider EFI, to offer a complete package for all in-house designers, agencies and advertising departments to support their proofing needs. With the new Epson Design Editions, covering three key products within its range – the SP-WT7900, the SP-4900 and the SP-3880 – Epson delivers a complete one-stop-shop for all in-house proofing needs.
For busy departments or agencies who don’t have time to research, benchmark and purchase each element individually, the Design Editions represent a quick and cost-effective investment. Simply select the Epson printer to suit and, via one of its channel partners, Epson provides the entire package of hardware, and RIP software from EFI – its popular Express Edition – along with a set of Epson media profiles. Users can also add the SpectroProofer if they have the need for automatic and highly accurate colour calibration and measurement.
• Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 Design Edition – the industry’s first white ink packaging proofing printer, offering an innovative and unique ink formulation which is capable of printing on various substrates including metallic at sizes of up to 24 inches (53.35cm).
• Epson Stylus Pro 4900 Design Edition – for agencies and in-house departments who want to tap into the industry’s highest Pantone match rate of 98 per cent, providing high-quality proofs at up to 17 inches (43.2cm).
• Epson Stylus Pro 3880 Design Edition – for smaller design studios or freelancers who want a compact, affordable printer for their proofing needs at up to 17 inches (43.2cm).
Martin Johns, Market Development Manager, Pro Graphics, Epson UK, says: “We know how important it is for busy agencies, designers or departments to save time and money when it comes to proofing – this is why we put together the Design Editions, aiming to save time not only on researching and selecting each element within the package, but also to help them speed their proofing productivity. And they will also be delighted with the cost savings, as the Design Editions are significantly more affordable than purchasing each aspect individually.”
