Pro 7890 and 9890
REDEFINING THE FUTURE OF PRINTING
A New Standard of Excellence.
For more than a decade, Epson has set the standard by which all other photographic printing technologies are judged. So, when we decided to develop an entirely new generation of photographic printing technology, the significance of this effort inspired our engineers to rethink everything.
Introducing the new Epson Stylus Pro 7890 and 9890 printers.
Representing a new standard of excellence, the Epson Stylus Pro 890 series incorporates our latest achievements in photographic ink jet technology. By combining the precision of our MicroPiezo

TFP

print head with the proven performance of our eight-color
Epson UltraChrome K3

with Vivid Magenta Ink, our newest generation of Epson Stylus Pro printers continue to represent a level of technology unprecedented in Epson’s history.
Epson UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta utilizes eight colors — including auto-switching Photo and Matte Black inks — while setting the benchmark standard for the industry. Even more remarkable, when combined with our new AccuPhoto

HD screening technology,
Epson has once again raised the level of print quality.
Our advanced MicroPiezo TFP print head is capable of producing higher quality prints, at speeds almost twice as fast as our previous generation.
And, with our latest ink-repelling coating and auto nozzle verification technologies, clogged nozzles are virtually eliminated.
As we did with our higher-end Epson Stylus Pro 900 series printers,
Epson has developed, in partnership with X-Rite

, a high performance, in-line spectrophotometer for commercial proofing applications. When driven by the latest front-end RIPs, Epson’s SpectroProofer

can automate virtually any color management process in your workflow.
With printers capable of handling virtually any media type, in roll or cut sheet, up to 24" or 44" wide, Epson continues to set the standard for professional media use. Whether producing sellable color or black-and-white photography, point-of-sale signage, or even color accurate commercial proofs for client approvals, creative professionals now have a powerful tool that enables them to produce their vision without compromise.
Welcome to a new standard of excellence.

A Photographic graininess could still be visible if present in the actual ? le being printed.
B Dmax and L* values are based on Epson Premium Luster Photo Paper (260).
C Cartridge yields vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings,
temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or
predominantly with one ink color. A variable amount of ink remains in the cartridge
after the “replace cartridge” signal. Part of the ink from the ? rst cartridges is used for
priming the printer. Ink is used for both printing and print head maintenance. All inks
are used for both black and color printing. For more information about cartridges, see
www.epson.com/cartridgeinfo
D Ink used in conversion varies considerably based on temperature and other factors.
E Based upon print engine speed only. Total throughput times depend upon front-end
RIP, ? le size, printer resolution, ink coverage, networking, etc. Normal Mode based
on SuperFine — 1440 dpi.
F Print permanence based on accelerated testing of prints on specialty media,
displayed indoors, under UV coated glass. Actual print stability will vary according
to media, printed image, display conditions, light intensity, humidity and atmospheric
conditions. Epson does not guarantee longevity of prints. For maximum print life,
display all prints under glass or lamination or properly store them.
