  • Description

    Epson have a long and proud history with their A2 model line - from the Epson 3800, through the 3880 and P800, to this, their latest update - Epson have long had what is really the obvious choice for any small/home studio with a need for superb quality, archival fine art printing - be it for Photography, Graphic Design, or Illustration.

    This latest A2 model makes further improvements to an excellent platform. At last - no black ink switching! Long overdue, but huzzah nonetheless! Better paper feeding (fine art paper can now again be loaded from the top) - better print quality (including yet deeper blacks and 6% more gamut!) - and an amazingly reduced footprint (30% size reduction!!). What's not to like?

    This is a world class printing machine that will suit just about any creative.

    Don't hesitate!

    Epson Say:

    Epson raises the bar again with its cutting-edge design of the new high quality A2+ photo printer, the Epson SureColor SC-P906™, which delivers professional features including high-capacity cartridges with an expanded colour range, new printing modes, networking and wireless connectivity, large touchscreen display, plus advanced media handling. UltraChrome® PRO10 pigment ink, combined with Epson's innovative MicroPiezo® print head, enables the SC-P906 to produce gallery-quality black & white output, plus improved vivid colour prints with breathtaking blues and violets thanks to the new Violet ink that is now on board. The Epson SureColor P906 also has dedicated lines for all colours so now you do not have to wait to switch between the Photo / Matte Black ink carts saving you time and keeps you printing more efficiently. The Epson SureColor P906 is setting new benchmarks in A2+ professional photographic printing, delivering the highest D-max to date and unsurpassed black and white photography along with outstanding colour exhibition quality prints. The SC-P906 is 30% smaller than its predecessor and is ideal for amateur and semi-professional photographers and for any business that has a regular requirement for high-quality colour presentations.

    Epson P906 Key Features:

    • A2+ size printing – Exhibition Quality prints up to A2+ size but in an A3 sized footprint.
    • Superb print quality and colour – Epson UltraChrome Pro10 Ink with Violet, is a new industry-leading ink technology, delivering an extended colour gamut producing vibrant and rich prints.
    • Black Enhance Overcoat – Our new technology provides richer blacks, better contrast and better tonality, all while reducing gloss differential in dark areas on glossy medias.
    • Dedicated black inks – No more automatic switching of the Photo / Matte Black inks with both inks having their own channel in the print head that means you will be printing straight away rather than waiting for ink cartridges to switch over. Photo Black Ink produces rich, deep blacks on traditional photographic papers; while Matte Black Ink produces exceptional results on matte surface media.
    • Advanced Black & White Photo Mode – Professionals can choose from pre-set modes – neutral, warm, cool, or sepia – for stunning neutral or toned black-and-white prints. This feature provides intuitive and consistent control through custom slider bars and a colour tone wheel for advanced tone adjustment. In addition, customised settings can be saved and recalled to achieve consistent prints, and using the optional downloadable Epson Print Layout software, users can automatically preview personal images with the selected settings. Epson Print Layout is now available on Apple mobile devices so you can print from anywhere.
    • UltraChrome Pro10 ink cartridges – These new ink cartridges come in 10 different colours including 4 types of black and 6 colours including Violet ink which helps to expand the colour gamut on these new models. These inks also offer great light fastness and if displayed properly will last a lifetime*.
    • Advanced, simple media handling – An Improved design allows precise top feeding of fine art paper - a definite advantage that not only simplifies a delicate task, but reduces installation space.
    • Optional Roll paper Support – Many specialty media stocks are only available in a roll format. With a low cost add-on you can now output onto an expanded range of media while also producing panoramic images up to 17" wide and over 1m in length. Great for busy environments you can even leave the printer to produce a long series of prints which can be later cut to individual size requirements.
    • CD/ DVD Printing – In keeping with Epson's precision CD/DVD surface printing tradition, the Epson SureColor SC-P906 supports high quality printing directly on to the surface of compatible inkjet printable 8cm and 12cm CD-Rs and DVDs.
    • Wired or wireless connectivity – The SC-P906 can connect via Ethernet sharing the printer on your network or by the latest wireless standard, WiFi 5, 802.11 ac 5 GHz. Wi-Fi Direct® means no router is required enabling users to easily connect to wireless networks in seconds, allowing printing from virtually any room in the office.
    • Customisable 4.3" touchscreen with gesture control – The SureColor SC-P906 has a built-in 4.3" touchscreen with a keypad and gesture navigation that features an impressive touch sensitive customisable LCD display panel which allows you to check the printer status, ink levels and perform routine maintenance tasks along with a variety of other tasks all with a swipe of the screen. You can even set the background to be the print you are printing for an added look.
    • Reliable service cover – The SureColor P906 ships with a 1 year on-site warranty but can be extended to a maximum of 5 years on-site service which includes parts, labour and print heads*.

    Specifications

    Please note: Specifications are provided as a guide only.

    We try very hard to keep these up to date and correct, but if a particular specification is really critical to you, then please double check the specification directly with the manufacturer. Some features may of course have caveats not fully described here.

    To get more information about a particular specification, use the arrow to get a 'Specxplanation'.

    • Inkset Name
      Ultrachrome Pro
    • Inkset Type, # Inks
      Pigment, 10 inks
    • Carriage Width
      A2 (17", 432mm)

      The Carriage Width is the maximum width of paper (on the short side) that can be used in the printer.

      Colloquially printers are more commonly referred to as 'A4, 'A3+' or 'A2' printers in Australia but of course not every country in the world uses the A paper system.

      Typically, A4 printers have a 9" carriage, A3+ printers are 13" carriage, and A2 printers a 17" carriage.

    • High Quality Black and White?

      Does the printer have a dedicated, high quality black and white mode for photographic printing?

      Almost all ink printers have a 'black only' type mode, but that is quite different to what we're talking about here.

      In this mode, called by Epson 'Advanced Black and White' mode or simply ABW, the printer uses multiple grey inks (AKA light black, light light black inks) to produce smooth black and white tones with little to no colour interference.

    • Maximum Print Resolution
      5760 x 1440

      This is the maximum dot resolution of the print head. The higher the number, the smaller the dots of ink the printer can place.

      Note that this has nothing to do with image resolution of course. The printer uses several ink dots to form the colour of one pixel. However the dots are so fine and closely mixed together you can only really see this screening pattern with a magnifying glass.

    • Dimensions
      61.5cm (W) x 90.2cm (D) x 52.07cm (H) (printing)
      61.5cm (W) x 36.8cm (D) x 19.9cm (H) (storage)
    • Connections
      USB
      Ethernet

      What physical connections are possible? Wireless support is listed separately below.

      Options include USB, Firewire, Thunderbolt, and Ethernet.

    • Included Cables
      USB
    • Wireless Support
      802.11b
      802.11g
      802.11n
      802.11ac

      Does the printer support wireless, and if so what speeds and standards.

      Most modern routers will offer at least G, which is fast enough to run a printer. N and AC are quicker and good to have but they won't make your printer faster unfortunately!

    • Direct Device Printing Support
      Google Cloud Print
      Apple AirPrint
      Epson Connect

      If you use Apple devices like the iPad or iPhone, you'll want Apple Print support, allowing you to print directly from your device to the printer.

      For Android devices, Google Cloud Print is the equivalent system.

      Epson Connect offers a further option but generally you'll use one of the two main options above with modern devices.

    • Disc Printing Support?

      Does the printer support printing to printable CDs and DVDs?

    • Sheet Sizes Supported
      5 by 3.5"
      6 by 4"

      The sheet sizes supported by the printer out of the box. You can also generally define your own custom sheet sizes in the driver if you want to use unusually sized materials.

      (Note, though, that you can't typically print borderless to custom sheet sizes - the standard workaround is to use sheets slightly larger than you need, and then simply guillotine to the printed edge after printing).

    • Borderless Sheet Sizes Supported
      5 by 3.5"
      5 by 8"
      6 by 4"
      7 by 5"

      US B (11" x 17")
      US C (17"x 22")
    • Roll Printing Support?

      (With Optional Accessory)

      Does the printer support roll media, and do you need an accessory device for this?

      Even if the printer doesn't support roll media, you can still buy rolls, cut sheets from the roll, and use those. Just leave them to flatten for a few days as paper curl can be a painful issue with printers.

    • Roll Width Support
      Rolls up to 17" Wide
    • Borderless Printing On Rolls?

      Can the printer print right to the edge when using roll media?
