Epson Middle East is launching its first A3 color printers (print on up to 11″x17″ media) that feature its continuous ink supply system (CISS). Available in the Middle East, the new L1300 is a four-color A3 printer, designed to deliver low-cost printing to offices with high print volumes, while the L1800 is designed for photographers, advertising agencies, and other small offices with its six-color printing.

    I have been using Epson printers for 3 years now, never have i been more satisfied with the printing outcomes. The in-built CISS is a gift for anyone looking for a user-friendly and cost-effective printer!!!

    Epson printers are nice but infamous for not taking a stiffer card without damage to their fine print head which was a costly mistake. how robust is the new machine and how many prints before it shows up as “faulty” since i do not believe sending perfectly good printers to the bin is any environmentally friendly solution

      We are unsure about the effects of thick paper on the durability of the printing system. However, the Epson inkjet printers are limited to 68-lb. photo paper while HP inkjet printers are limited to 80-lb. photo paper.
