Making a cheap ink that most third party companies produce is not a difficult task, but making an ink that rivals and surpasses Epson, Cannon, and HP is a formidable task. We did not look at what our competitors and OEM inks looked like as a prerequisite for our design of UltraMax II. We looked at what was needed to get the most out of a wide range of media and produced that product.
We looked at the way our inks reflected off of different media and adjusted each color ink to produce the highest vibrancy. This often took the blending of special pigments to create the desired result. The result of which is greater brilliance with superior depth of color, and a wide gamut. When looking at output profiles alone to understand the ink set and paper is often misleading. Profile viewing may give you some idea of what your system has to offer, but two of the leading softwares report different findings. That is why we say seeing is believing. The way an image reflects on paper do to the ink's reflective quality cannot be measured in a profile.
There is an expression our customers use; "its got to have juice." UltraMax II is the juiciest.
Image fading can also be due to the media. Media with high OBA's (optical brighteners) will shortly cause a break down. They look brilliant for a relatively short time, but then they break down. Media line Museo Max that is pure, will tend to last far longer. Humidity, heat, and light radiation combined have an affect on the fastness of the image. It is always advisable to coat an image. An overcoat such as how what is called clear coat for cars is more effective than placing UV inhibitors in the ink.
There is another detail that is often overlooked. That is the effect on moisture creeping in from the back of the media, such as paper and canvas. It is even advisable to coat the back with a less expensive coating.
Wilhelm Research announced a drop in longevity in Epson ink from over 100 years to less than 65 years in the introduction of Epson Ultrachrome. That is because of the use of Yellow 74. Many companies use that yellow for signage inplace of a greener shade yellow that while having longevity results in very pore creation of red values.
We have had clients tell us how their images printed for outdoor use has lasted for over 3 years. Terry Schopper told us that not only did he have to make a duller image to match the solvent image, but that his image months later still retained its color while the solvent print showed signs of fading.
Widest Color Pallet:
Gray ink set:
Symphony ink pallet is ideal for Fine Art, Photographic, Display, and Signage.
This unique color pallet has the ability to produce extremely deep rich color without needing the introduction of Black to falsely produce the deeper color densities, which results in a more Lifelike reproduction. Keep in mind, Fine Art Painters do no use black and would not use black to make a deep color. This pallet produces rich color on low cost media that usually produces anemic looking images.
Bottom line: This pallet reduces the cost of printing, while producing the widest spectrum.
Terry Schopper: "Symphonic Ink is so rich that I can produce quality prints on cheaper media that ordinarily does not produce rich or vibrant color. I do a great deal of canvas reproductions which are exceptional with the Symphony 12 ink set. Our canvas reproductions do not crack when I stretch them. They did with Epson's Ink. The cost of running the Symphony 12 color ink set is lower than listed."
Stuart Penney of SMP Graphics: "My framer asked me, which printer do I use? He said my prints are richer than other reproductions we frame. The canvas reproductions do not crack like the ones from Epson."
Giles Prett, Head of Crane Paper Technical Research and Master Printer: "I placed Symphonic UltraMax II Photo ink set in my 9600 over a month ago and have not had a drop out since. The prints I made with Symphonic Ink on Museo Max are richer, brilliant, more defined with color and detail in the shadows than I have made with any other ink. Matte Black is deeper than any other ink set. There is no glazing or surface anomalies. They are just beautiful. The neutral balanced Light Black ink and the controls in Symphonic Evolution yield pure Black and Whites with absolutely No Bronzing or knowledgeable. Symphonic Inks and Symphonic Evolution Giclée Rip are an unbeatable combination."
UltraMax II will dispel the stigma of third party inks. While it will save you a great deal of money, and is much more wallet-friendly than Epson, HP, and Canon, it is not a cheap ink. So, if you want cheap, don't call us, but if you want the best at a great price with incomparable results and the most comprehensive technical support, this is for you. Ask about our profiling support.
