About the printer
The Epson Artisan 1430 is a wireless A3+ photo printer using Epson's Claria 6-colour dyebased ink-set. It delivers a resolution of 5760 x 1440 dpi with a very small 1.5 picolitre droplet size, resulting in prints with extremely fine detail and very smooth gradation.
The TIPA jury especially noted the convenience of wireless connectivity – a feature not provided by competing A3+ photo printers. This allows the printer to be placed anywhere in the studio or workspace, plus it supports printing from iOS and Android devices via the Epson iPrint app.
