Based upon print engine speed only. Total throughput times depend upon front-end RIP, file size,
printer resolution, ink coverage, networking, etc. Normal Mode based on SuperFine - 1440 dpi HS.
B
Cartridge yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use
and temperature. For print quality, a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the "Replace
Cartridge" indicator comes on. The printer ships with full cartridges and part of the ink from the first
cartridges is used for priming the printer. Printer ships with 110 ml cartridges. Photo Black cartridge
included, Matte Black must be purchased separately. See www.epson.com/cartridgeinfo for more
information about cartridges.
C
Ink lightfastness rating based on accelerated testing of prints on specialty media, displayed indoors,
under 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.

Cartridge yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use
and temperature. For print quality, a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the "Replace
Cartridge" indicator comes on. The printer ships with full cartridges and part of the ink from the first
cartridges is used for priming the printer. Printer ships with 110 ml cartridges. Photo Black cartridge
included, Matte Black must be purchased separately. See www.epson.com/cartridgeinfo for more
information about cartridges.
C
Ink lightfastness rating based on accelerated testing of prints on specialty media, displayed indoors,
under 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.
