New to Piezography, question on curves for Epson 1400


#1

I’m just getting started and have gotten some amazing prints on the JC2 paper with the K6 Selenium inks. I’m interested in trying some whiter paper as well so I went here: https://piezography.com/technical-support/supported-papers/ and selected EPSON Hot Press Bright based on this “Supported Piezography Ink Systems: P2 (K6), K7, Pro”.

I can’t seem to locate the .quad or .icc for this paper in the community edition folders.

is P2(K6) what I have on the Epson 1400? or is P2(K6) different than just K6?

If my printer is supported, which .quad and .icc go with this paper? I don’t mind old curves, any working one is fine.

I also went through all the selenium*icc files, and it looks like only three are matte papers, although there are .quad files for many more. Do I just pick one of the 3 that seems close?

Thanks!

We are in the process of profiling the 1400/1430 for supported papers and UltraHD-MK ink. The 1400/1430 was lower on our R&D rung of late compared to getting Pro curves out and PiezoDN launched.

For now, simply use the Hahnemuhle Photo Rag curve. We can also do you a customer curve at Inkjetmall if you need/want it.
