Epson Stylus Photo 1400 key features summary:
The Epson Stylus Photo 1400 features fast connectivity, six individual ink cartridges with Epson Claria Photographic Ink and advanced Epson imaging technologies. It prints high-quality, glossy photos up to A3+.
8 January 2007 – Epson has launched a new A3+ six-colour photo printer, featuring Claria Photographic Ink for long lasting, borderless premium quality photo prints. The Stylus Photo 1400 is the successor to the renowned Epson Stylus Photo 1290s and offers more durable photos, superior image quality and faster printing speeds. It also features six individual ink cartridges, so only the colour that is used needs to be replaced. Direct printing onto CD and DVD faces is included for personalised archiving and easy identification of CD content. Connectivity support includes Pictbridge, USB 2.0 and an optional Wireless Ethernet Print server.
The Stylus Photo 1400 is equipped with Epson’s advanced Micro Piezo™ print head technology that delivers sharp borderless prints from 10x15cm up to A3+. It also incorporates Epson’s improved Advanced Variable-Sized Droplet Technology (Advanced VSDT) which provides more flexible ink droplet sizes and more accurate placement of the droplets. Together with six-colour printing, the result is even more detail where light colour and softer tones are required.
The Stylus Photo 1400 driver also supports Adobe RGB for a wide colour gamut. Additional colour output modes include ‘Epson Vivid’ ideal for presentations and graphs and ‘Epson Standard’ for faithful reproduction of sRGB images. In addition, the Epson Stylus Photo 1400 allows advanced colour management with out-of-the-box ICC profiles for the Epson media range.
Epson PhotoEnhance automatically detects and optimises images according to subject type, for example, portraits, landscapes and sky lines. In addition it analyses and improves skin tones, colour casts or light exposure. The end result is optimum image quality regardless of experience in photo manipulation.
About Epson Claria Photographic Ink
The name “Claria” is derived from the term clarity and is specifically denoted as Photographic Ink to express Epson’s confidence in its rich definition and excellent durability. When combined with Epson Glossy Photo Paper, Epson Claria Photographic Ink delivers superior quality glossy prints of the highest levels of durability. The six-colour ink set includes cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light cyan and light magenta. It offers 200 years of durability and archivability in album storage, family photos can be preserved and shared for generations to come.
With Epson Claria Photographic Ink the colouring agents’ molecules have a stronger and more stable structure, making them more resistant to the fading effects of light and unstable gasses in the atmosphere. The result is that Epson photo prints retain their beauty under a wide range of conditions.

4 Epson recommends that you use genuine Epson ink cartridges. The use of other products may affect your print quality and could result in printer damage. Yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use and temperature. For print quality, a small amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the “Replace cartridge” indicator comes on. The printer ships with full cartridges and part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the printer. See www.epson.com/cartridgeinfo for more information about cartridges.
