  • For the Stylus Photo R1900 Printer

The Epson 87 Matte Black Ink Cartridge for Epson Stylus Photo R1900 Printers -   prints digital photos that look and feel like traditional color lab prints. This quick-dry, ultra-fine ink provides vivid high-image quality output with minimum dot gain.

When the most vivid, brilliant colors and true deep blacks are critical to a photograph or proof, Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss 2 inks are a logical choice. Epson photographic dye delivers a print with unparalleled color, density, and clarity. This ink is a favorite among commercial photographers, prepress proofing, and design professionals.

Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss 2 pigment inks provide superior resistance to water, fading and smudging.

          After having Epson 1200, and 2200, the 1900 is giving the desirable effect at last. Vivid and natural colours, smooth greys and half-tones, good gloss.

                My B&W prints really pop. The richness in color is amazing. I do wish the ink cartridge would last longer, but the quality is there.

                I would give it five stars except for the volume. Epson really needs to figure this out. Great color otherwise.

                  I use these cartridges to print Fine Art Digital Prints on Epson papers. Color is vivid and crisp. I'm also pleasantly surprised by how many prints I can make before running out of ink.
