  • Epson 2000p

    Those of you with the Epson 2000P, do you use the roll of paper or the cut sheets? I've seen the info on the epson site saying you can use both semi gloss and matt paper sold on 8 and 10m rolls. Also if you do use the rolls is there a paper cutter or something on the printer? I'm very curious about this aspect of the 2000p as I'm considering getting one in the next few days.

    I've used the rolls for some panorama prints that I've done at about 11.5" x 36." There is no paper cutter on this....which is a shame, because I do tend to waste paper. You are able to advance the paper and then pull it back to the original margin. It prints a dashed line at the end of your margin to give a guide to cut it at, but you have to use scissors. Not very convenient...I too wish that they had a paper cutter. The largest size flat paper is Super A3 in the cut sheets. If you want anything longer than that, you need to buy a roll.

      The new printer and scanner are on the way and I can hardly wait for them to arrive. Gess it's going to take a few days to get used to the new equipment but I'm so excited.

        OK Sanda, don't keep us in suspense. When you get them you will have to start a thread on your new toys and tell us all about them. Don't leave any details out.

          The new toys arrived today, I didn't realize how big the 2000p is. with a little shuffling around I've managed to fit it in alongside my old printer. I think I'll keep the old one so that I can use it for everyday printing. That way I won't waste the ink in the 2000p. Does anybody else run two printers? If so how do you have them set up?
          I haven't connected the printer or dcanner up yet I've been too busy trying to find the space for them. Oh yes the scanner is an Epson 1650 photo.
          Looks like it'll be a late night tonight getting it allset up and playing with it.

            I have a 1270 and a 760, Sandra. I have the 760 set up as my default printer for regular duty. It's a lot cheaper to run. And it saves wear and tear on the 1270.

            I run them both usb.

              I was thinking of running the 2000p in the USB port and the 760 in the serial port. Not sure it it'll all work though.

                Enjoy the new toys Sanda

                Like Sharon, I have an old Stylus Color 800 (default) on the parallel port, which I use for general work and the Photo 1200 on the USB port. Because of it's size, I normally only attach the 1200 when I need it. I can print to both at the same time, but have never found it necessary to do that.

                  Sanda, I run two printers from a single parallel port, using an A/B selection switch box to switch between them and this has worked very well....good luck!! Tom

                    I run the inkjet from USB and a laser printer from the parallel port. Pre USB I had an extra card which gave another parallel port but that set up was very temperamental.

                      I hooked the new printer up to a USB port and left the old on in parallel port, it all seems to be working the only problem I had was I tried to get the old printer to work but it refused. I soon discovered that I didn't have the cables in properly, I forgot to switch cables after removing the old scanner and was wondering why the printer wouldn't work when it wasn't even connected to the computer. duh. But it all seems to be working fine now. All I have to do is work out the colour settings for the new printer, it prints much darker than the old one, and all will be fine.
                      Thanks for your advice I appreciate it.

                          I haven't done a lot of printing with it as yet because I've been tied up with my duties as the Cricket Club Treasurer preparing the final accounts for the season. I've only printed 3 photos so far but those were all a little darker than the same photos printed on the 760. There is a definate improvement in quality but I feel I need to spend a bit of time getting used to it. I should have all the Cricket Club stuff out of the way by tomorrow so I can start playing with my new toys. I'll report back and post some of the results as soon as the rest of my life goes away and leaves me to do the things I want to do rather than the things I have to do. lol

                            Hi All,

                            I’m leaning towards the Epson 1280, but is the 2000 worth the difference? Also, is there any word of an upgrade from the 1280? I would not like to purchase just before new models come our.

                            TIA

                              I've heard the 2000 makes lovely photos, but have recently been hearing a lot of complaints about metamerism (different colors of inks reflecting light in different ways). In one recent thread (I forget where I read it) the client complained that the image shifted green when viewed behind glass. After much back and forth, it turned out the client was correct.

                                I got some Kodak inkjet glossy photo paper for Christmas and decided to use some in my Epson 1270 printer. I thought for a minute the printer had some strange disease until I substituted some of my older Epson inkjet photopaper.

                                What kind of paper do you like to use to print your digital art? I don't mean photo's.

                                Waterproofness (??) of inkjet inks
                                by BigAl
                                On another thread, Heather (Lampy) mentions that ink jet inks are water soluble. This is the case with HP inks where the inks run from sweaty palms in contact with the print. However, I have just done an "experiment" with a print from my Epson 1200 (six color) printer. I had an A4 montage...

                                by KevinBE
                                I thought I would share my brief experiences with the Epson 2200 printer. I have only had it a couple of weeks and only printed about 10 8x10's and 5 11.7x16.5 pictures. I am reading posts on the dpreview board to try and select the paper I want to use most often. You really have to take a lot the...

                                Where do you get your supplies from. For example, acid-free folders, archival pages, print paper and such? I live in a small town with limited supplies, we do have an Office Max and a small camera store. Just looking for other ideas.
