LONG BEACH, Calif., June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson today announced it is shipping the new 17-inch SureColor® P800 Screen Print Edition and the 24-inch SureColor T3270 Screen Print Edition. Building on award-winning technology in the current Epson SureColor P800 desktop photo printer and SureColor T3270 large-format color printer, the screen print editions come bundled with AccuRIP Black Pearl SE™ software and Epson Screen Positive Film to produce high-quality film positives used to burn screens for the traditional screen printing process. The Epson SC-P800SP and SC-T3270SP are the only complete inkjet solutions for producing screen positive film, and are available now for purchase through select authorized Epson Professional Imaging resellers.
"The SureColor Screen Print Editions come fully equipped with high-quality ink, reliable film and easy-to-use software from AccuRIP to meet all screen printing needs, and we are thrilled to begin shipping into the hands of our customers," said Matt Kochanowski, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. "Advanced and versatile printing solutions, the SC-P800SP and SC-T3270SP create exceptional quality screen positive film, as well as quality posters and even photos – all at fast speeds to keep up with intense production demands. We look forward to continued feedback from our customers and uncovering new applications and use cases."
Leveraging genuine Epson UltraChrome® HD Ink and UltraChrome XD pigment inks, the Epson SureColor P800SP and T3270SP produce high-quality solid and halftone films up to 65 lines-per-inch (lpi) with high UV opacity and an exceptional black density up to 4.0 Dmax – all at best in class speeds, up to 40 films per hour with the SC-T3270SP1. Because these printers use a full color ink set, screen printers are able to produce high quality comps and posters, and even photos and graphics with the same printer used to produce screen positive films.2
"We were in search of a quality, cost-effective graphics solution to replace our outdated imagesetter, one with the ability to produce high resolution film separations for our custom print orders," said Brad Nichols, Art Director, Insta Graphic Systems, the world's leader in heat transfer technology, quality heat press machines and custom heat transfers. "Other printers on the market weren't able to offer the detail and density that we required. The Epson SureColor T3270SP, however, is an ideal printer that combines production speed, exceptional quality and extraordinary simplicity – all at a great value."*
