Epson Press Release: Epson Introduces the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 Designer Edition – A New Generation of Package Prototyping Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 Joins Family of Designer Edition Printer-and-RIP Systems for Creative Professionals
LONG BEACH, Calif. – Sept. 7, 2011 – Epson America today announced a new addition to the Epson® Stylus® Pro Designer Edition line – the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 Designer Edition. Combining the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 with an industry-leading EFI™ eXpress WT software RIP, this system is engineered to deliver extremely high-resolution packaging mock-ups for graphic design firms, creative agencies and brand owners.
This system combines the advanced hardware and aqueous Epson UltraChrome® HDR White ink technology of the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 with the Adobe® Postscript® interpreter and PANTONE® color matching capabilities of the EFI eXpress RIP. Together, this combination allows users to print both color and white ink directly on clear or metallic media, as well as color accurate CMYK comps, proofs, mock-ups, and prototypes. In addition, the software includes an easy-to-use intuitive interface that saves time and produces accurate spot colors with the included PANTONE, DIC, HKS, and TOYO libraries.
“Epson continues to break printing barriers, taking what is perceived to be a complex process and providing a solution that offers both ease-of-use and intuitive functionality,” said Larry Kaufman, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “The Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 Designer Edition builds on Epson’s strengths in the graphic design community to deliver a superior product for the packaging creative process and mock-up needs.”
The Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 Designer Edition allows designers to create in-house mock-ups more efficiently than using an outside vendor, as well as gain creative control of packaging concepts with reduced turn-around time. In addition, the software provides users with the ability to print directly from the latest creative design software or drag-and-drop files to a hot folder for cross platform network printing. Full support is included for all Epson proofing and packaging media, with the ability to add profiles for additional media types. Pricing, Support and Availability

The printer and RIP is supported on both Macintosh OS X and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
