For Top Quality Artistic Prints

I use an Epson Pro Stylus 3800 with Ultrachrome K3 pigment-based inks. The inks are perfect with Epson papers. These are not glossy, highly saturated, rapid drying, non-clogging and archival.

        I have an Epson 3880 and print mainly color on Luster paper, using the Photo not Matte ink. However, on occasion I do print B&W and the prints coming from this K3 Matte inkset are
        astounding.

            Comments about Epson UltraChrome K3 Matte Black Ink Cartridge (80 ml):

            I use the Epson UltraCrhome K3 Matte Black Ink Cartridge in my Epson 3880. The richest looking prints are printed on matte paper and this ink excels in that task. Any artist will tell you the proof of a great painting or sketch is the value you give to the various shades of gray that extend between pure whites and blacks creating depth and shape. UltraChrome K3 Matte Black is just the ink that I need to insure those varying tones of contrast. The shadows rendered by this ink make the composition jump off of the paper. Without it all of the other colors would look dull and flat. I'm extremely happy with this product.

                      Matte black is an ink that many may never use if the standard paper and graphic/photo work is on glossy or luster. I love this matte black for fine art photography and digital paintings.

                              When I bought my Epson printer (Pro 3880), I thought I would mostly be printing on luster paper, which requires "photo" black ink. How wrong I was, as I find Epson's "matte" black ink to work wonderfully with Epson's "Signature Worthy" matte papers, especially the cold press bright. Now, printing on matte paper is the rule and not the exception.

                                    I get a consistent color accuracy when printing a large edition. I like the ability when a cartridge is exhausted the printing stops, i reload the cartridge and the print is not wasted. The printer finishes the print, no loss of materials.

                                      My father is a professional photographer. Due to this ink and a great printer, he is able to print all of his work in the comforts of his own home studio and save a lot of money.
