Epson 1400 Announced

The newest Epson inkjet printer will replace the workhorse Epson 1280. We had hopes that the Japanese version of this printer, the PM-G4500, would make it to our shores. Like the other “Hi-Definition” printers using Claria inks, the 1400 will have individual ink tanks.

Because dye inks do not offer multi-decade long print life, the 1400 will not be for photo enthusiasts looking to keep their prints many many years. However, the 1400 will be great for other projects such as greeting cards, calendars, portfolios, marketing materials, and promotional items like mini-books and book marks.

Some highlights about the 13″ wide Claria dye ink printer as listed by Epson:

  • Print 13×19 enlargements fast

  1. According to Wilhelm Research and Epson prints made with Claria ink can last up to 98 years in display or 200+ in an album. So when you say that because it’s a dye ink printer means that the prints won’t last, you’re probably mistaken. After all, the reality and perception that pigment inks last so long comes from the very same Wilhelm Research testing that says Claria inks have a longer display life that Ultrachrome K3 on glossy paper.

    And from experience I can say this: Claria ink prints are waterproof on every paper I’ve tried, cotton papers included.
