Eboni-6 inkset for Epson Printers

 

 
With this new ink set, 100% Carbon Pigment Black and White Printing becomes possible on virtually all Epson printers. Eboni-6 will appeal to those who want very smooth and stable fine art prints. While the older and newer Epson large format printers were the primary targets (including the 3800, 3880, 4000, 4800, 4880, 7500, 7600, 7800, 7880, 9800, 9880 and similar printers), many Epson desktop printers can use this approach to achieve pure carbon pigment printing.

V1.1 Update - We recently were forced to make a change to the formulation of our Eboni ink due to a supplier change to one of the components used in the Eboni formula. While the v1.1 is still a 100% Carbon pigment, it has a slightly higher optical density and a slightly warmer tone. This may require updates to any curves or workflows used by customers using our first generation Eboni. We apologize for any inconvenience that this causes, but we do not expect to have to make any further changes for many years.
 
With no color inks in the inkset, profiling is easier, while fading and color ink artifacts, including metamerism and tone shifts cease to be concerns. EB6 ink is for matte paper only unless a spray fixative or coating is used on the print.

WORKFLOW INSTRUCTIONS

Making Prints with MIS EB6 v1.1 100% Carbon Monotone B&W on Epson printers.

Paul Roark has provided detailed instructions on how to use the MIS EB6 inks with variousprinters. A variety of printing procedures or workflows can be used, including the Epson driver and QTR (Quad Tone Rip). The output can be adjusted using the printer controls provided by Epson on the standard driver (Mac or PC).

While the ultimate in control will come with a rip like QTR, the Epson driver with an ICC made with QTRís ìCreate ICC-RGBî will work very well. Below are several options with respect to workflows.

1. Epson Driver ñ ìColor Controlsî Checked, No curves, No ICC Most Epson models will print reasonable well with the following driver settings: paper type = EEM, Matte Heavy Weight, or Watercolor: 1440 or Best Photo; and high speed un-checked. Print 21-step test files to see if driver gamma setting 1.8 or 2.2 results in the most evenly distributed, best looking test strips. The sliders might be able to improve the image. Matching how the image looks on the monitor is usually the primary goal. Printing with only the Color Controls may result in a print slightly lighter than ideal.

2. ìColor Controlsî Checked, No Curves, ICC in Print Preview The use of an ICC in the Photoshop or Elements Print Preview has significant advantages. Grayscale ICCs are easy to make using QTRís ìCreate ICC.î This program is part of the QTR download. To download this program, go to QTR. An ICC that is made for the specific printer, inkset and paper ìcolor managesî the workflow, in the sense that the monitor will automatically give a reasonably good match to the printís relative densities.

Both methods produce fantastic looking prints. Follow Paul's recommended settings and paper selections for the Epson printer of your choice.

 
Information about the Inks

There are 6 densities of ink in Eboni-6. The placement of the inks, by MIS abbreviated designation, is as follows (with a note as to approximate density of the ink):

  • K = Eboni v1.1 (The standard MIS Associates carbon matte black ink)
  • C = EB6C v1.1 (Similar in density to the standard MIS UT dark gray density)
  • LC = EB6LC v1.1 (Similar in density to the MIS UT Light Carbon density)
  • M = EB6M v1.1 (Similar in density to MIS K4-LK)
  • LM = EB6LM v1.1 (Similar in density to MIS LLK)
  • Y = EB6Y v1.1 (A very light ìLLLKî)
The density order, from most to least dense is: K, C, M, LC, LM, and Y. For the Epson 2200 ñ 9600 (K2 printers) or 2400 (and other K3 printers) the notes on densities above indicate what inks to use in the LK and LLK positions.

The Ultratone inks are all extremely archival. Our tests indicate that they will far exceed 100 Wilhelm equivalent years. The fade resistance data from our Atlas Weather-O-Meter will be published shortly.

WHICH PAPER TO USE

The print tones produced by the Eboni-6 inkset range from near neutral to warm, depending on the paper used. In general, the maximum Lab B value (yellowblue axis) indicates the warmth of the print. The higher the Lab B value, the warmer the print will appear. The difference between the paper tone and the maximum midtone Lab B also affects the sense of warmth, as the eye tends to do an automatic white balance on the paper white or other white reference (like the matte board). The maximum Lab B values have ranged from slightly negative to about six with matte papers. Lab A also affects tone, but it is essentially set by the paper and remains relatively constant. A slightly positive Lab A (red/magenta) is generally preferred to avoid the print taking on a green tint; thus all of the papers show this characteristic to some extent.
