Epson Introduces DS Transfer Photo Paper

The new Epson DS Transfer Photo Paper is a high-quality, lightweight dye-sublimation transfer paper, which, when combined with Epson SureColor F-Series dye-sublimation printers, inks and Wasatch RIP support, creates a complete solution designed to produce rigid photos with advanced print quality and vibrant images with minimal grain, consistency and reliability.

Universal Woods, the world’s leading manufacturer of hard surface products for sublimation, has been using the new Epson solution with the Epson SureColor F6200 printer on its ChromaLuxe panels. ‘The new DS Transfer Photo Paper was manufactured with ChromaLuxe in mind, and it addresses some of our main concerns with sublimating – texture and lack of sublimation dye around the outer areas of the aluminium photo panel,’ said Josh Bender, sublimation specialist, ChromaLuxe.

The DS Transfer Photo Paper delivers excellent colour gamut and black density, with reduced grain and mottling for smoother flesh tones and cleaner, lighter colours. In addition, it offers superb handling with almost no curl and warping under the heat of a flat press. The paper offers high ink transferability with slight transparency, which helps register the printed paper to the rigid substrate. Best used with the SureColor F6200, Wasatch SoftRIP version 7.6 offers full support for the DS Transfer Photo Paper for colour management, print cost estimation and colour profiles.

Tim Check, senior product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc said, ’This new paper is especially beneficial for the SureColor F6200 user who is producing high-quality photographic prints on ChromaLuxe plates. There are a lot of multipurpose transfer paper solutions available; this is one of the first that is designed for rigid photo print quality – reducing grain to provide a more dynamic range of colour.’
