WWW: The Epson Artisan 800

Just before Thanksgiving I got a very special delivery; the wonderful Epson Artison 800 printer that was showcased at BlissDom ’08.

I waited until Michael came home to open it, because I am the least technological person in this house.  Sure I can email, do stuff with Adobe Photoshop, upload pictures, and blog, but I cannot even fathom how to hook up a printer.   This isn’t just an ordinary printer.

Here’s all it can do:

  • Full-Featured Scanning and Copying: The Artisan 800 features 4800 dpi resolution (48-bit color) for high quality scanning of images and documents with brilliant clarity and accuracy.   This all-in-one also offer standalone, one-touch color and black and white copying with a wide range of easy-to-use options such as the ability to scan to a computer, memory card or USB flash drive, easy photo reprints and enlargements up to 400 percent, and a convenient fit-to-page printing feature. It even offer background removal for crisp, clean copies of text documents.  Includes OCR software for converting documents into text users can edit.
  • Standalone Photo Capabilities: The Artisan 800 has card slots that are compatible with all popular memory card types for printing photos without a computer or transferring files to or from a computer. Plus, you can print directly from a digital camera or mobile phone with the PictBridge® connection. Additional photo printing options include print-by-date, custom picture packages, photo index sheets, and passport and photo IDs.
  • Restore Faded Photos: It can easily restore color to old, faded photos with or without using a computer.
  • Creativity Made Simple: Included software allows users to create and print personalized CDs/DVDs, greeting cards, elegant invitations, beautiful photo calendars, photo books, and more.
  • Shared Use at Home: Wi-Fi and Ethernet networking are built in for sharing with all users in the home. An optional Bluetooth® photo print adapter is also available for printing from cell phones and other mobile devices.
  • Flexible Paper Handling: Can print borderless photos in popular sizes, including 4″ x 6″, 5″ x 7″, 8″ x 10″, and letter.  Also features a paper cassette with two paper trays that eliminate the need to switch between plain and photo paper.
  • Smart Ink System: The Artisan series feature convenient individual ink cartridges that can be changed in as little as five seconds and replace only the color needed. In addition, innovative technology conveniently combines color inks to produce black when black ink is low to extend printing. Cartridges are available in two sizes to match users’ printing needs.

I haven’t played with the printer except for the night that Michael got it all set up.  I do plan on doing some fun stuff, including a give-a-way of some of my prints.    I’m also planning on making a big picture wall in our living room.  If only I could decide which photos to actually print!

It’s pretty damn cool and pretty damn affordable, too!   Discover your Epsonability.  I’m certainly going to discover mine!
