Neutral PrintsCarbonprint Graphite is an ink based on partially neutralized carbon pigments, without the addition of color pigments or dyes. This results in extremely high durable prints, assuming the use of correspondingly long-term stable papers. Carbonprint Graphite is the perfect solution for photographers with a preference for matte papers and prints in a neutral black tone. Carbonprint Graphite is compatible with all pure matte photo and fine art papers without glossy coatings.
How to print?
The user replaces the color cartridges of his Epson® printer with Carbonprint cartridges. Depending on the printer model, some cleaning operations may be required to transport the new ink to the printhead. The printer is now ready for FineArt prints with Carbonprint. Send an image file as a desaturated RGB or grayscale file to the printer and it will output as a high-tonal black and white image. You do not have to dig into complicated software, print your photos the way you are used to. Advanced users have the option of using pre-made or custom ICC profiles. In this way, the tonal values for your printer, ink, paper combination can be optimized in print.
If the printout is too neutral, you can change the tone of the printout from neutral to warm neutral by replacing the inks of the two color channels magenta and light magenta.
