Representing a new standard of excellence, the Epson Stylus Pro 7890 incorporates Epson’s latest achievements in photographic ink jet technology. By combining the precision of their MicroPiezo TFP print head with the proven performance of their eight-color Epson UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta, the newest generation of Epson Stylus Pro printers continue to represent a level of technology unprecedented in Epson's history.
Epson UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta utilizes eight colors - including auto-switching Photo and Matte Black inks - while setting the benchmark standard for the industry. Even more remarkable, by combining them with Epson’s AccuPhoto HD screening technology, they have once again raised the level of print quality.
The printer’s advanced Epson MicroPiezo TFP print head is capable of producing higher quality prints, at speeds almost twice as fast as the previous generation. And, with Epson’s latest ink-repelling coating and auto nozzle verification technologies, clogged nozzles are virtually eliminated.
Like their higher-end Epson Stylus Pro 900 series printers, Epson has developed, in partnership with X-Rite, a high performance, in-line spectrophotometer (sold separately) for commercial proofing applications. When driven by the latest front-end RIPs, the SpectroProofer can automate virtually any color management process in your workflow.
The Stylus Pro 7890 is capable of handling virtually any media type, in roll or cut sheets, up to 24 inches wide. Whether producing sellable color or black-and-white photography, point-of-sale signage, or even color accurate commercial proofs for client approvals, creative professionals now have a powerful tool allowing them to produce their vision without compromise.

** Cartridge yields vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink color. A variable amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the "replace cartridge" signal. Part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the printer. Ink is used for both printing and print head maintenance. All inks are used for both black and color printing.
*** Display permanence 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.
