In these documents, the inkjet printer EPSON R2400 UltraChrome K3 is used as a reference for colour matching. The following reasons are key for this:
- The printer uses a pigmented dye, the colour of which changes slightly in the time between printing and stabilization (dry print).
- There is a preconfigured print mode for precisely printing sRGB images.
- There are only minimal colour errors when coordinating the printer with the printer drivers that perform colour conversion.
We cannot make any statements regarding other printers. Please contact the respective manufacturers directly.
