  • 8-Channel MicroPiezo AMC Print Head With Ink-Repelling Coating - One inch wide, the print head delivers a maximum resolution of 2880 x 1440 dpi. It produces variable-sized ink droplets as small as 3.5 picoliters to simultaneously optimize photographic quality and dramatically decrease print times. Proprietary Active Meniscus Control (AMC) technology precisely controls the curvature of every ink droplet within each nozzle before releasing it onto the media. A unique ink-repelling coating helps to prevent ink build-up around the nozzles, allowing for precise and accurate dot placement, and reduced maintenance.
  • AccuPhoto HD2 Image Technology - Created from collaboration between Epson and the Rochester Institute of Technology's Munsell Color Science Laboratory, AccuPhoto HD2 combines a complex mathematical architecture with an advanced screening technology to provide outstanding image quality. AccuPhoto HD2 is specifically engineered to ensure precision placement of each individual ink droplet, resulting in smooth, grain-free images. Choosing from an extraordinary number of possible ink combinations for each color, this technology optimizes the ink use to maximize the color gamut and provide smooth color transitions and gradations. Reduction of the metameric index makes it possible to achieve consistent color under different lighting conditions.
  • Epson PreciseColor Technology - Every Epson Stylus Pro 3880 meets the standards of Epson PreciseColor manufacturing. This rigorous process applies colorimetric calibration to ensure that individual printers of the same model produce prints that are virtually indistinguishable from one another.
  • Three-level Black Ink Technology with Two Auto-sharing Black Ink Modes - Three-level Black technology simultaneously uses Black, Light Black and Light Light Black ink, resulting in richer blacks, an unsurpassed gray balance and stunning tonal range. Whether a panorama of fall foliage or a black-and-white portrait shot in subdued light, your print will duplicate exactly what you saw through the lens. The 3880 automatically switches between two different Black ink modes - Photo Black or Matte Black. This optimizes the Dmax (Black ink density) for various media types, so whether you're printing on traditional photographic media or unique, fine art paper, final print quality is dramatically improved.
  • Automatic Print Head Alignment and Cleaning Technology - A built-in sensor automatically reads printed data for highly precise alignment of all color channels, both bi-directional and uni-directional, resulting in outstanding accuracy. In addition, the automatic print head cleaning mode analyzes a printed nozzle check pattern and automatically cleans the print head, if even a partially clogged nozzle is detected.

Nine individual 80 ml ink cartridges ensure truly professional printing. On-the-fly ink cartridge replacement increases productivity
  • Compact, 17-Inch Wide Printer - Even with its surprisingly small footprint, the Epson Stylus Pro 3880 offers a number of advantages. Its print engine technology takes full advantage of the latest in precision mechanical design, resulting in a significant reduction in overall printer size and weight. In fact, it's equal in size to many competitive 13-inch printers. Quiet operation that won't interfere with other activities in the studio - or the residence. Large, 2.5-inch, backlit LCD control panel for easy, direct printer control and status monitoring
