PowerDriver-E User’s Manual
SECTION 1
Copies
Sets the number of prints needed per image. Use this feature when multiple prints of
the same image are needed.
Paper Size
Sets the desired output paper size used when printing. Adjust this to match the size
of the document you are printing up to 24” in width.
Substrate
Sets the desired substrate being used. Match this to the type of material on to
which you will be transferring your printed image. Because PowerDriver’s color
management is optimized for each substrate listed, it is important to choose the
substrate that most closely matches the substrate being used.
SECTION 2
OEM
Sets the OEM printer intended for use with PowerDriver-E. This feature is particularly
useful when printing to multiple printers with the same ink set. For instance, if you
have two Epson Stylus Pro 7700’s and both are for printing with SubliJet E Professional, you can choose between each printer per print job.

SECTION 3
Realistic
This setting is intended as a photographic color management solution. It is most
suitable for photographic images containing landscapes or portraits.
Saturated
This setting is intended as a business graphics color management solution. It is
most suitable for business logos and designs that require a more vivid color output.
Intense
This setting is similar to “Saturated”, but has a deeper/more vivid output. It is most
suitable when the “Saturated” setting does not output the desired amount of “pop” or
color needed.
Grayscale
This setting is intended for printing monochromatic or black and white images. It
allows you to print images using varying shades of gray only.
ColorSure
Check this box if you want to use the ColorSure color palette. ColorSure is a
method for reproducing exact spot colors. By picking colors from the ColorSure
Palette, you will be able to consistently reproduce colors in a reliable manner.
Custom Palette Here you can add your own unique colors to the ColorSure palette. ColorSure must
be checked in Color Options in order to use this feature.
Print Palette
Click here to print the default ColorSure Palette. This feature allows you to see how
colors will look once transferred to your desired substrate. Before you print the
ColorSure Palette, be sure to choose the paper size, paper type and substrate that
most closely resemble those which you are using. The default ColorSure Palette will
also contain custom colors once you have added and saved them using the Custom
Palette utility.
High Speed
When this setting is selected, print parameters are optimized for faster print times.
High Speed is more suitable for soft substrates.
High Quality
High Quality provides higher resolution, smoother gradients and more vivid color for
sublimation images. High Quality is more suitable for hard substrates.
Mirror
Check this box to “flip” or reverse your image. The image becomes reversed when
transferring from paper to substrate. Therefore, you will need to “flip” or reverse the
image before printing to paper.
Cutter
Check this box if you would like the Epson to automatically cut after each print.
