Cut a roll Kodak paper DRY LAB to print on Epson 3880.
« on: May 29, 2015, 10:48:45 pm »

I'm starting a business Photobook and live in a country where there is no photo paper suppliers and all I have to import. I wonder if I buy KODAK PROFESSIONAL Inkjet Photo Paper, Lustre DL / 255g- 12in x 328ft and short sheets 12x16 "could print to my Epson 3880.? This type of paper is compatible with Pigment ink or Dye.?

This way I get more economical each sheet.

Thank you very much and sorry for my English.

Ask Brand Management Group that distributes Kodak materials.

Dry Minilabs -Epson, Noritsu, FujiFilm- all use dye inks (HP's dry minilab did not but is non existent right now).
I doubt the paper will suit the 3880 pigment inks well but might cope to some degree but .................

Maybe the question is whether BMG delivers an optimal paper for dry minilab's dye inks if the quality described in both PDFs is the same, the second one suggests it is both pigment and dye compatible. Kodak never had a reputation for long lasting color prints of course.
