Print Black Only or Color with Same Inks
|Multi-Channel 100% Pure Carbon Printing|
Black and White digital print users are excited about the new Multi-Channel 100% Pure Carbon print capability
now available on the R800 and R1800. Inksupply.com has made available our 100% Carbon Eboni v1.1 ink for printing black only gallery
quality prints on the R800/R1800.
100% pure carbon printing becomes a reality with the R800/R1800 printers by combining the 1.5 picoliter printhead technology available in the Epson R800/R1800 with the high Dmax and archivability of Inksupply.com Eboni Black v1.1 ink. The results yield high resolution Black Only (BO) prints that will last more than a lifetime. No color pigments are used to make the print. The 3 Eboni black v1.1 inks in the positions specified make this possible. The new Multi-Channel 100% Carbon ink for the R800/R1800 printers is a unique solution that will allow the printer to retain all but two of the non black cartridge positions. By changing only the Photo Black and Gloss Optimizer cartridges the printer is still capable of producing high quality color images on matte papers using only the Epson driver in addition to the gallery quality carbon black only output. This inkset is meant for matte papers only. To produce Black and White prints follow this simple workflow:

If you are currently using MIS UC equivalent cartridges you will only need to purchase the 2 Eboni Only cartridges
for the Gloss Optimizer and Photo Black Positions. The matte black position should already have our Eboni v1.1 ink installed, if not
you will need a Eboni Black v1.1 cartridge for that position.
If you are using the Epson OEM cartridges, you will only need to purchase the 3 Eboni Only cartridges (Gloss Optimizer w/EK, Photo Black with EK and Matte Black with EK Positions.
The full color cartridge set is offered here for your convenience, and are exactly the same as our MIS cartridges for the R800/R1800 printers. If you are currently using R800/R1800 inks that are not OEM we recommend switching to Inksupply.com color inks to avoid ink compatibility issues. Additionally, we strongly recommend that you use cleaning cartridges to clear ink from the lines prior to the use of Eboni v1.1 and before switching back to the original Photo Black and Gloss Optimizer cartridges.
Eboni 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.
|Before switching to Eboni v1.1 in the Photo Black and Gloss Optimizer color positions, it is recommended that these positions be flushed with Inksupply.com Cleaning Cartridges.|
