Introduction

Art & Design has 3 Epson 3880 ink jet printers for student use

Locations:

  • 34 - 222 Photo Lab (1 printer)
  • 34-151 Graphics Lab (2 printers)

• Students need to supply their own paper unless otherwise notified by your Faculty.

• The 3880 printers are professional quality photographic printers, although they can also be used for graphics work or other non-photo prints.

• In order to achieve highest quality results, specific paper and the correct associated ICC profiles must be used. Epson paper is a safe bet, and Epson profiles are loaded and ready to use. Please check with Faculty or the Lab Tech if want to use other paper.

• All ink jet (Photographic) printers through out Art & Design can only be used from a dedicated, directly connected lab work station. They are not available for network printing from other computers.
