The L805 Ecotank is the ideal sublimation printer package, an A4 6 colour photo printer delivering low cost prints with wireless connectivity.
Due to the Ecotank that is built into the printer by Epson there is no need for any retrofitting or modifications of a CISS or RIC. This really is the easiest printer to set up for sublimation printing.
Just pour in the ink and go!
WHY THE ECOTANK L805?
Not only is this printer easy to use, but it offers excellent value and includes some amazing functions you won’t find on other printers.
The main attraction of this printer is the Ecotank, and the biggest advantage of it is the fact that it will never ask for ink. No ink out messages will interrupt your printing, meaning you can stack up the paper feed and leave it printing indefinitely. The printer will never stop printing if it has ink in the tank and paper in the feed.
For this reason alone, multiple customers have switched to this system. Moreover, the print quality is outstanding for a 6-colour machine. Images are rich in colour and transferred images lose no detail.

Print drivers have been issued for the new Epson models on Catalina OS, there is a known issue with colour correction on this OS. Depending on your version of OS Catalina the method in which you apply your ICC profile changes. Customers must be aware that colour correction can change with each update of OS Catalina.
