Epson has always bucked the inkjet trend. Whereas other manufacturers rely on boiling the ink within the print head, to eject it onto the paper, Epson uses a piezoelectric system to fire it out. It’s a relatively cool-running process and enables very high print resolutions, typically of 5760dpi. Epson has always claimed that it also gives greater freedom in ink formulation, as there’s the rapid heating and cooling cycle is taken out of the equation.

Sticking with all-important ink theme, the Epson’s current range of inkjet printers fall into three main categories. For the most part, document printers have a conventional four-ink line-up of cyan, magenta, yellow and black, which delivers a sufficiently wide gamut (or color space) for text and graphics. The company has historically favored a six-ink system for photo printing, adding light cyan and light magenta to the mix to extend the gamut for more photo-realistic output.
