The Ink shade placement for Piezography 2 is as follows (for all K3 8-ink printer models), and works with ALL Piezography ink tones:
Black= Neutral #1 (for non-gloss printing)
Cyan= shade #2
Magenta= shade #4
Yellow= WarmNeutral shade #1 (for glossy printing)
Light Cyan= shade #3
Light Magenta= shade #5
Light Black= shade #6
Light Light Black= Gloss Overprint (for gloss printing)
The “P2” curves are specially designed for improved gloss compatibility with ALL Piezography ink tones, and are programmed to use the K position black for matte/rag printing, and the Y position black for gloss printing, so no more changing blacks- now you can print Piezography matte/rag and gloss with just one machine!!! Some customers are already set up and happily printing with the P2 system, and we have been using it in our production studio (Cone Editions Press) for about a year with excellent results, though the curves have not yet been officially released (they will be VERY soon!). We have completed a library of about 10 paper curves for each of the five Piezography ink tones, because although the ink tones share similar shade density, they are not all EXACTLY the same, so perfectionists as we are- we decided to provide curves for each ink tone for the absolute best output quality.
Keep an eye on our newsletter and website for product announcements and updates, P2 is coming very soon!
Happy printing~ Dana
