Epson media settings for the ImagePrint RIP
Media settings to use when using non oem papers
For the best printing results with the ImagePrint RIP from ColorByte software you need to match the media settings to the type of paper that you have.
This is easy with Epson papers, but what do you do for other manufacturers?
The particular example that led to this table was Keith's review of Textured Art Silk paper from Permajet.
After wading through Epson sites around the world I've collected the following info on their products.
It may not be complete and it may vary from what you find on your local site (Epson US seemed to have the most details about their products.)
I've also converted paper thicknesses in mils to mm to make it a bit easier.
There is also a PDF with more Epson paper thicknesses and weights, and which papers and inks work with which printers
As I test various other papers, I'll add technical info that is of use for ImagePrint users on this page
Epson's paper information
Here is what I've found ... if you find different values on another Epson site I'd appreciate knowing :-)
...and here sorted by thickness
The two images below are from an Epson UK PDF file with ink and paper info (2008) It also contains what papers work with which inks and printers.
PermaJet Paper information
I've recently tested 7 different papers from PermaJet, and three of them currently have profiles from ColorByte Software.
I've also created QTR curves for the Epson 1290 using PermaJet MonoChromePro inks (3 per paper) - See the B/W printing ink review for more information
A zip file of all 15 QTR ink curve files is available for download. Please feel free to contact us if you need any more info.
