Epson SureLab SL- D3000, the company’s first inkjet-based dry photo lab, promises a host of advantages for photo print service providers including superior quality, low cost per print, improved flexibility, and simpler maintenance. The printer is the most advanced professional quality album printer and is touted as an ideal choice for those looking to set up or expand their professional album printing business. The printer’s amazing speed allows users to procure 650 prints in an hour. Also, consumers can choose print sizes ranging from 4 to 12 inches.
Equipped with Epson’s Micro Piezo print head, the printer is capable of delivering images with 1440 x 1440 dpi resolution. Using the SL-D3000, consumers can create high quality prints on glossy, matte, and luster media up to 12 inches wide for printing professional photographs, greetings cards, invitations, flyers, panoramic landscapes and promotional leaflets.
The UltraChrome D6 six-colour ink set used by the system features high capacity 700ml cartridges, capable of achieving a wide colour gamut that exceeds that of traditional silver halide, thereby yielding prints that are vivid and lifelike with excellent black density. Enhanced tone gradation is achieved through advanced image processing; blue skies are brilliant while skin tones are subtle, and grey backgrounds are soft. The printer is exceptionally easy to operate with virtually no maintenance required except consumables replacement.
