Advice on Printing Your Own Art Prints – Epson Artisan 1430 Review (non-tech professional’s opinion)

Hey everyone. I’m a bit wary of posting this video, but many of you seemed interested. Ultimately, I should not be your only source of information when it comes to getting a printer. Read reviews & ask your favorite artists what printers they use and why they would/would not recommend them. That’s what I did and it helped a lot!

This was an awesome video. I’ve just purchased this printer and am about to install this same CIS system. I’ve purchased a color managing device called ColorMunki Photo that is supposed to help with making sure what you see on the monitor matches with what you see when you print. The topic of color management with printing is very very extensive and can feel overwhelming at times but hopefully I will get the hang of it.

super super informative video! thank you so much for sharing! I have totally saved this video for later, when i get a printer. I didnt even know there was such a thing as an external ink system, I am super interested to look into it one day. Awesome! thank you!

Nice review 😀 Neat to see the behind the scenes bit of the process. I agree that a mix between matte and glossy is probably my favorite too. That continuous ink system is amazing, I’d never heard of that before! Great idea for a money/convenience saver. 🙂

Where are the install instructions?

Thanks! This should come in handy if/when InverseDream and I investigate doing our own prints instead of ordering them.
