Stylus Photo 1400: Can I use fine art papers with my printer?

RELATES TO:

  • Stylus Photo 1400
  • Media compatibility

EXPLANATION:


No. The Stylus Photo 1400 does not support fine art papers, but supports a wide range of Epson glossy and matte media.

Epson recommends the use of Epson fine art papers with selected Large Format Printers and selected A3+ range models which have specific feed paths designed to accommodate the surface of these types of papers, helping to protect both the paper and the printer's rollers from the dust that is characteristic of fine art papers. This dust can build up on the paper feed rollers and cause feed problems and in addition to this, the dust can collect inside the printer and around the print head which could result in some blocked nozzles on the print head. This, in addition to the difference in the formulation of the ink, is the reason that printers without this paper path do not support this type of media. We strongly recommend that you do not attempt to use fine art papers with the Stylus Photo 1400, as it may result in damage to the printer and print results cannot be guaranteed.

The paper specifications for the Stylus Photo 1400 are:

  • Between 64 - 90 g/m²: Non EPSON paper (plain bond paper).
  • Over 90 gm2: Genuine Epson media only. For genuine EPSON paper and media the maximum weight is 300 g/m2.
