  • ¹ We recommend that you use genuine Epson 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 variable 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.

  • ² Color photo speed in Photo mode on Premium Glossy Photo Paper. Additional processing time will vary based on system configuration, software application and page complexity. See for more information about print speeds.

  • ³ Lightfastness rating of 104 years with Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper and 200 years with Epson Watercolor Paper - Radiant White based on accelerated testing of prints displayed indoors framed under glass. See for test details and information on other Epson papers. Actual print stability will vary according to display conditions, light intensity, humidity and atmospheric conditions. Epson does not guarantee longevity of prints. For maximum print life, display all prints under glass or properly store them.
