There are also dedicated channels for both Matte and Photo Black inks. Droplet sizes are as small as 1.5 picoliters and ink is stored in eight individual ink cartridges.
As for media, the P400 has a front-in/front-out paper path for fine art papers up to 1.3mm thick and supports a roll feed to produce panoramas up to 10 feet long. You can also print on CDs and DVDs.
The SureColor P400 has Wi-Fi for wireless printing and works with Epson’s iPrint mobile app.
According to the company, color prints made on the P400 will last for 100 years or up to 300 years in dark storage.
