About Epson

What is known today as Seiko Epson Corporation was originally founded in 1942 Japan as Daiwa Kogyo, Ltd. and produced watch parts for Seiko Instruments. It had humble beginnings as the original facility was a renovated miso warehouse. The company had much success and made its name with different innovations throughout the years, including the world's first quartz watch.

In 1964 when Seiko Group was selected to be the official time keeper of the olympics they developed an electronic printer, this was their first foray into the printer market. Through the next few decades the company made many new innovations like calculator printers and dot matrix printers.

In March 1993, Epson released the MJ-500 cartridge, which was the first cartridge to use Micro Piezo inkjet technology and did not heat the ink at the print head while spraying ink onto the page, for the Epson Stylus 800 printer. In 1994, Epson released the first high resolution color inkjet printer that utilized Micro Piezo head technology, the Epson Stylus Color (P860A). This printer utilized Epson's special DURABrite ink.

Most Popular Epson Printers & Products

Epson offers the best printers for your home or office, from wireless to portable, label and all-in-one printers. Here are some of the most popular lines of printers from Epson:

EcoTank

Until EcoTank and other bulk-ink printers were introduced, paying $500 for a printer rated at 15ppm was considered ridiculous. With EcoTank technology, though, not only is keeping your printer supplied with its inks easy, but at about 0.3 cents per monochrome page and slightly less than 1 cent for color pages, printing out a bunch of pages or documents is no longer prohibitively expensive. These are among the lowest cost-per-page ratings we've seen. If you print hundreds of pages or more per month, you can save quite a bit of money with an Epson EcoTank printer.

SureLab Printers

Epson SureLab D870 delivers vibrant, life-like images that deliver professional quality prints in a minimalist design. The SureLab D870 features Epson's durable UltraChrome D6-S Dye-Based Archival Ink Technology as well as Epson's advanced, reliable print engine design. Built for demanding applications, including retail, resort or events, the SureLab D870 can print up to 430 4" x 6" prints per hour. Additionally, the printer offers an array of printing finishes, matching your style of presentation. The Epson D870 is able to provide industrial-quality performance while maintaining a compact footprint making it an ideal choice for many offices and businesses.

WorkForce Series

Epson WorkForce Pro Series printers offer low-cost color inkjet printing, making them ideal for offices needing a quick and affordable way to print high-quality color documents. Epson WorkForce series is an all-in-one office printer that packs a lot of value. It is ideal for small and mid-sized companies looking for affordable color printing. WorkForce printers bridge the gap between low-cost, low-quality color laser printers and high-cost, high-quality color inkjet printers normally out of the reach of most offices.

Epson Connect

With Epson Printers equipped with Epson Connect, you're able to print documents and photos wirelessly from your iPad, iPhone, tablet, smartphone or computer with Epson Connect. This free solution makes it easy to print, whether you're in the same room or across the world.

PictureMate

PictureMate gives you the convenience of your very own digital photo lab at home. At about 29 cents per print, printing is almost as affordable as the lab, and about half the cost of a traditional 4" x 6" dedicated photo printer. And, PictureMate photos will last up to four times as long as photo lab prints. No wonder so many people are choosing to print their own photos at home with Epson PictureMate printers.

Printer Ink

Epson printers use individual cartridges of ink that contain only one color, as opposed to HP's tricolor cartridges that contain two colors in one cartridge. Basically, each cartridge is a plastic tank filled with ink. You can see the gold chip on the end at the top. When installed into the printer, the cartridge works with a fixed printhead to create a print. It communicates with the printer to track ink levels. Most Epson printers will only have a few specific ink cartridge models that they work with, typically a standard black and standard color cartridges, as well as high capacity XL cartridges.

Epson FAQs

  • What is Epson Connect?

    Epson Connect allows you to print, scan, and share using a smartphone, tablet, or mobile computer, so you can print photos and documents from your home, office, or anywhere you like.

  • Is Epson Connect free?

    Yes. With Epson Connect, you can print from your iPad, iPhone, tablet, smartphone or computer wirelessly, for free. Our cloud-based services make it easy to print from anywhere, whether you're in your living room or on the road.

  • Is the Epson EcoTank worth it?

    It depends how often you print and how much you print. It is nice to have the ability to print thousands of pages of ink no matter whether you print 5 pages a month or 500 pages a month, but if you don't print frequently, the EcoTank may cost you more than it's worth. Just like any inkjet printer, EcoTank inks can dry out over time if they aren't used.

  • How long does EcoTank ink last?

    According to Epson the tanks hold enough ink to print up to 4,000 pages black and 6,500 pages color, which is about two years' worth of use or 20 sets of ink cartridges. Typical EcoTank users can save up to 80 percent on the cost of ink.

  • What are the disadvantages of ink tank printer?

    Ink tank printers can dry up if you don't use them regularly, just like inkjet printers. Laser printers are better for those who print less often, since they don't run out of ink as quickly.

  • Can Epson EcoTank print photos?

    Yes, and if you plan to print photos often the EcoTank is a great option for you, since you will save on the cost of ink and photos take up a whole lot of printer ink.

  • Is Epson ink cheaper than HP?

    Yes, Epson delivers the lowest cost per text page, averaging 6.9 cents per page with its standard cartridges. Canon follows at 8.3 cents per page, and HP at 9.2 cents per page.

  • Is it better to leave the printer on or off?

    In order to ensure a longer printer lifespan and healthier print heads you will want to leave your printer on. Constantly switching off and on will decrease your printer's life, so try to minimize switching the printer on/off.

  • Which is the best Epson WorkForce printer?

    Epson's WorkForce Pro EC-4040 is the best Epson printer for home use we've tested. Although the WorkForce line is designed specifically for office use, this all-in-one is suitable for family use also.

  • Are you supposed to shake ink cartridges?

    Shaking a toner cartridge can help dislodge stuck toner powder, but there's no reason to shake an Epson ink cartridge with liquid ink.
