[QUOTE=Kenneth Lee;11760]Sorry, I’m confused. According to Piezography 2 Matte and Gloss for K3 printer models,
[I]"Piezography 2 is designed for use with the K3 8-ink Epson printer models, such as the R2400, R2880, 4800, 4800, 7800/9800 and 7880/9880.
*If using a R3000, 3800/3880, 7890/9890 or 7900/9900 printer that has two black channels, P2 isn’t necessary, because matte and gloss printing is already possible with K7. "
I have a 3880 and just purchased and loaded K7 inks. I intend to make matte prints only. Do I need - or should I transition over to P2 inks ? [/QUOTE]
I’ve always had trouble with that statement on the IJM P2 page, because “it isn’t necessary” sometimes gets interpreted / portrayed as “you shouldn’t”. Which is odd, given that my understanding is that IJM runs P2 in its 3880s in the Piezography workshops. You can run either P2 or K7. P2 is easier to maintain, as you don’t have to do the MK/PK switch every couple of weeks in order to prevent sedimentation in the black ink lines.
@Walker - I take it that those zips don’t contain the [I]complete[/I] set of new curves, do they?
