Our Ultimate Expression

At Epson, we never forget our heritage. We never forget the thousands of Creative Professionals who helped guide our engineering development to become what it is today. And after a decade has passed, we are still fascinated by what is possible.

There is a single word used among the Stylus Pro engineering teams within Epson - Monozukuri (mono-zu-kuri). When translated, it represents the human involvement required to develop the world's most difficult technologies - and succeeding.

Introducing the Epson Stylus Pro 11880

Representing the ultimate expression of Epson Stylus Pro engineering, the Epson Stylus Pro 11880 is produced by a dedicated team of specialists. Every step of its production is scrutinized, while incorporating our latest technologies, including an advanced MicroPiezo® TFP print head, real-time automatic switching between Matte and Photo Black inks, automatic nozzle verification and cleaning, and more. The result is the world's most advanced 64-inch wide photographic printer.

Epson UltraChrome K3® is the standard by which all other professional level ink technologies are judged. Now enhanced with our breakthrough new Vivid Magenta pigments, our latest-generation ink technology requires only eight colors, including a three-level black technology, to significantly raise the quality levels for professional color and black-and-white prints.

Imagine producing 64-inch-wide archival prints with amazing color fidelity, gloss level, and scratch resistance, while providing consistently stable colors that significantly outperform lesser ink technologies. Imagine producing professional, neutral and toned, black-and-white prints with even higher density levels, along with virtually no metamerism or bronzing.

With an even higher level of ink droplet accuracy, we've developed an all-new MicroPiezo TFP print head, featuring a new ink repelling coating technology for reduced nozzle clogging. And, when combined with our new Epson AccuPhoto™ HD screening technology, at an astonishing resolution of 2880 x 1440 dpi, Epson has once again raised the level of image quality - even exceeding our previous best.

Capable of handling virtually any media type, in roll or cut-sheet, up to 64 inches wide, Epson sets the standard for professional media use. Whether producing sellable color or black-and-white photography, fine art reproduction, or color accurate proofs for client approvals, never before have Creative Professionals had such a powerful tool, allowing them to produce their vision without compromise.

Our latest Epson Stylus Pro printers continue to represent a level of technology unprecedented in Epson's history. Combining the extreme precision of an Epson Stylus Pro print engine, with the extraordinary performance of our latest Epson UltraChrome K3 Ink technology, Epson continues to redefine the future of wide-format printing.

A Based upon print engine speed only. Total throughput times depend upon front-end RIP, file size, printer resolution, ink coverage, networking, etc. All print speeds are based upon bi-directional printing. B Cartridge yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use and temperature. For print quality, a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the "Replace cartridge" indicator comes on. The printer ships with a full set of cartridges and part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the printer. Printer ships with 110 ml cartridges. C Ink lightfastness rating based on accelerated testing of prints on specialty media displayed indoors under glass. Actual print stability will vary according to media, printed image, display conditions, light intensity, humidity and atmospheric conditions. Epson does not guarantee longevity of prints. For maximum print life, display all prints under glass or lamination or properly store them. Visit for the latest information.
