Epson Stylus Pro 3800 Standard Model

 

Large-capacity ink cartridges ; Prints on thick papers up to 17 inches by 22 inches ; Superior print quality on all paper types ; Long-lasting prints

Service and support

 

Epson Stylus Pro 3800

Class-leading black-and-white printing; lots of paper options; long-lived prints; large ink cartridges.

Expensive; large footprint; no roll feed.

Epson's least expensive pro-series printer yet, the Stylus Pro 3800 is sure to dominate among pros, prosumers, and big-spending amateurs alike.
