Epson R2880 ICC Profile Tracker

This a list of all ICC profiles for the Epson Stylus R2880 printer I've been able to find on the web.

It might help you track down the kinds of paper you can easily use with the R2880. When this page started the R2880 was the new kid on the block, but now it has broad support for pretty much every paper merchant.


Paper type Media Type Experiences Notes
Supreme Glossy No media type given, assume Epson Premium Glossy and read Michaels comment. Michael: "As I also like to use Brilliant paper on my Epson 3800 let me provide some information I found so far.
1. There are two different profile sets available for the Supreme series (Matte, Glossy, Lustre), one for the old coating and one for the new coating. You will find a sticker on the box if the paper has the new coating.
2. I would recommend to use the "Premium Luster Photo Paper" as Medium for Brilliant Supreme Lustre Paper.
3. I read in a PDF about ICC profile usage provided by Brilliant that the corresponding medium for Brilliant Supreme Matte Paper is "Enhanced Matte Paper".
Unfortunately Brilliant isn't providing detailed information about the settings they used when creating the profiles."

Roeland: "(Based on driver 6.57 eu and us version, running Mac OS X 10.5 32 bit and 10.6, 64 bit) The Matte profile works well. The Glossy and Lustre profile seem to produce blueish blacks on my printer. Seems to be the profile, as printing with a different profile or with printer color management on, seems to go ok. I'm in contact with Calumet in both the Netherlands and US if they can make new profiles."

The zip archive contains all three Brilliant Supreme Profiles
Supreme Luster No media type given, assume Epson Premium Semi-Gloss and read Michaels comment.
Supreme Matte No media type given, assume Epson Archival Matte and read Michaels comment.

Exhibition Fibre/Traditional Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Thijs:
Better than Epson Premium Gloss or Semigloss. Can be fed normally (tested).
Provided by Pixelgenius on behalf of Epson. Instructions say use "Luster" paper, but (European?) driver does not provide option for this.
Premium Photo Paper Glossy
(formerly Premium Glossy Photo Paper)
See page 30 of User's guide
(correct link, the link on the Epson site is wrong!).
Jon Westcott:
Slightly better contrast and definition then profiles shipping with the driver.
Premium ICC profiles provided by Epson. These should be better than the profiles shipping with the printer driver. European driver does not seem to feature the mediatypes recommended however! Will investigate this further.

Windows profiles are now up! (Thanks Jon Westcott!)

Gold Fibre Silk Epson Paper Glossy Henry Edelson:
The Ilford profile for the Gold fibre Silk works quite well, with nice saturation and color matchs my soft proof. I too noted a problem with head strikes around the last inch or so on the paper, even after carefully flattening it (using the rear single sheet manual feed). I found, though, that changing the platen setting in the Epson driver from standard to wide eliminated the problem.
Thijs:
Works OK using Premium Photo Paper Semigloss ICC Profile and media-type. Paper has the tendency to curl (long sides bend outward). You need to flatten the paper by rolling it along the short side with the coated side outward (carefully). I get headstrikes on the final inch or so otherwise.
Profiles are here!

If anybody knows of any further profiles, not listed here, let me know at:

and I will add them. Originally I intended to keep this page up to date while the R2880 was too new to warrant profiles automatically. But even now that the R2880 is an established printer there has been continued interested in the site and I'll continue to keep it updated.
