Ultratone Ink for Epson 7600 & 9600

 

Navigation bar for this page
 
These inks (UT7) are for use on the 2200/7600/9600 Epson printers using the Epson driver. Don't get them confused with the UT inks that use the Bowhaus or Quadtone Rip drivers. These are different. These inks work with Photoshop adjustment curves using the Epson driver on Mac or PC. They can also be used with Bowhaus, Quadtone Rip and other software.

The curves and instructions on how to use them have been provided by Bill Schwab with assistance from Paul Roark. Many thanks to Bill and Paul for yet another major contribution to Black and White digital printing. For more information about these contributors, please visit their websites, billschwab.com and paulroark.com.

CONTINUOUS FLOW SYSTEMS FOR THE 7600/9600


Epson 7000 CFS Cartridge Set

500 ML Bottles for CFS-7000

If you are a frequent printer or doing some production work, then we recommend you purchase a MIS Continuous Flow System for your 7600/9600 printer. This will save you money. The cost to operate a CFS is at about 2 times less than using cartridges. If you only print occasionally, then do not get a CFS. Always install our AUTOPRINT program (see CFS Page- halfway down) to prevent problems from occurring, due to infrequent use.

WORKFLOW INSTRUCTIONS FOR 7600

Making Prints with MIS Easy B&W UT7 Ultratone Inks on an Epson 7600

Here is Bill Schwab's workflow for making B&W prints with UT7 inks on the 7600. These inks are a variable tone ink and can be used to produce warm or neutral prints by using just the SLIDERS on the Epson driver. To get the full range of tones from the UT7 inks, image adjustment curves are required. With curves, the inks will print from sepia to cool on a variety of papers. These curves were created by Bill Schwab with assistance from Paul Roark and they are free. Follow the steps outlined below and you will end up with beautiful B&W archival prints.

 
A.   Download the adjustment curve file, 7600ut7.zip.  Extract the files using WinZip for PC's or Stuffit for Mac's. Save them anywhere on your hard drive, in a folder you know the name of, like UT7 Curves.

Prepare the printer to recieve the UT7 inks. The 7600 and 9600 printers have to be flushed with MIS Cleaning Fluid before installing the UT7 B&W inks. If not flushed, clogging and blockages can occur. The cleaning cartridges are available here. Follow Bill Schwab's procedure for flushing the printer contained in the 7600ut7.zip file.

 
B.      Use Photoshop 5.5 or higher or the Picture Window Image Editor. Start with the best possible grayscale image. Don't start with a color image. Convert the mode to RGB for printing. Do not save the image after you convert to the RGB mode, or after applying the adjustment curves, this is only for printing purposes.

If you start with RGB images made with a digital camera, convert the image to grayscale to totally get rid of the color information. That is, it is important that R=G=B for all shades of gray.

 
C.      Load and apply the desired Image Adjustment Curve. Click on Image, Adjust, Curves, and Load. Then click on Browse to find the adjustment curve you have downloaded. Highlight the curve to be loaded and click on OK. The curve will be applied to your image.

Each curve is for a specific paper. The curve names indicate the paper to be used.

Curve Paper Tone
7600_UT7_PhotoRag_Carbon.acv Hahnamuhle Photo Rag Paper Warm or Carbon Tone
7600_UT7_PhotoRag_Cool.acv Hahnamuhle Photo Rag Paper Cool Tone
7600_UT7_PhotoRag_Neutral.acv Hahnamuhle Photo Rag Paper Neutral Tone
7600_UT7_PhotoRag_Sepia.acv Hahnamuhle Photo Rag Paper Sepia Tone
7600_UT7_EEM_carbon.acv Epson Enhanced Matte Paper Warm or Carbon Tone
7600_UT7_EEM_Neutral.acv Epson Enhanced Matte Paper Neutral Tone
7600-UT7-HMNH-Carbon.acv Hawk Mt Nighthawk Paper Warm or Carbon Tone
7600_UT7_ESFA_Neutral.acv Epson Smooth Fine Art Paper Neutral Tone
7600-UT7-EUSFA-Carbon.acv Epson UltraSmooth Fine Art Warm or Carbon Tone
7600_UT7_EUSFA_Neutral.acv Epson UltraSmooth Fine Art Neutral Tone

To get these curves download 7600ut7.zip or get them from Bill Schwab's site.

When a curve is applied, the image will turn nice bright colors, but these are false colors. The image is no longer WYSIWYG. This is for printing only, and should not be saved over the good grayscale working file. Do not attempt to edit the image once the curve has been applied.

(Note that a Photoshop Action (macro) can program a function key to convert to RGB, call up and apply the desired adjustment curve/tone, and get the user into the print driver. That is, this can be a one-button procedure/workflow.)

 
D.    Making the Print using Photoshop adjustment curves -

The Epson driver is used to print this inkset. Follow Schwab's instructions below for making the print.

  • Make all adjustments to your file in grayscale.
  • Convert to RGB file.
  • Apply adjustment curve and print with the following settings:.
    • Smooth Fine Art Paper Setting
    • No Color Controls selected
    • 1440 dpi selected
    • High Speed Unchecked

Making the Print using Epson driver slider adjustments -

Note: The exact instructions for this method have not yet been supplied by Bill Schwab. However the guidelines published by Roark for the 2200 will be very close. As soon as Schwab provides this information, we will post it here.

 
E.    Going Beyond Perfect -

Be sure to let the print dry before judging the color or tones. If you need a good stepwedge to work with, you can download the one we use. For barrier type papers (glossy, luster & semigloss) spray prints with a protective coating like PremierArt Print Shield or Lyson Print Guard. This spray largely eliminates the differential reflections (including what some call bronzing) and makes the print surface so tough it can be cleaned with a damp cloth.

If you would like to know more about how the Photoshop Curves are constructed, you can read the information provided by one of our "expert customers", Dirk Hobman. Dirk explains how to make curves for the MIS UltraTone B&W inks. Plus he offers a couple of graphic forms for keeping track of the data that is gathered in the process. To read his article on B&W curve making, download this file... hobman.zip.

There is an excellent forum called Digital B&W, The Print. The forum discusses all digital technologies related to making monochrome prints from digital sources, including the MIS ink sets and workflows. If you are using MIS inks or plan on using them, this is a great place to find additional information and to contact current users.

 
F.    Information about the Inks

For most papers the Eboni black cartridge (UT7-T5438-UTK) will work fine. If you are having problems using glossy or semigloss paper, put in a Photo black cartridge (UT7-T5431-UPK). The 6 other inks do not have to change, they will work on matte or glossy papers. Do not use MIS Universal black (MK). The fade resistance of MK is not adequate for making archival prints.

Prepare the printer to recieve the UT7 inks. The 7600 and 9600 printers have to be flushed with MIS Cleaning Fluid before installing the UT7 B&W inks. If not flushed, clogging and blockages can occur. The cleaning cartridges are available here. Follow Bill Schwab's procedure for flushing the printer contained in the 7600ut7.zip file.
