Introducing the Expression Photo XP-950
Ultra-compact printing of large, beautifully detailed photographs is what the cleverly designed XP-950 is all about. It has a footprint more typical of an A4 printer, but its compact design can issue fabulously detailed A3-sized prints and photos. It's well-armed to achieve perfection, with the six-colour Claria Photo HD Ink, a dedicated photo paper tray and a speciality rear media feed for A3-sized paper or card.
The combination of A3 photos and its ability to not only print but also scan and copy, make this a true one-off. It's what's inside that makes the XP-950 stand out; from the inks to the printhead, all elements are designed by us and created to work in harmony. The results are great looking, long-lasting prints that photographers will be proud to display and share.
It's not all about photography.
It may be a cutting-edge A3 printer, but the XP-950 has all the familiar features, too. Fitted with WiFi for easy set-up and a large touchscreen that's simple to use, the XP-950 uses two front-loading paper trays for easy switching between media and sizes. It couldn't be easier, and the results are hard to beat.

True photographic quality
Great photos should look even better when printed, and that's exactly what the XP-950 promises for owners of DSLR and compact cameras. It uses Epson's top-of-the-range six-colour Claria Photo HD Ink, a dye-based ink set that creates superior-quality, long-lasting photos dominated by detail, high contrast and smooth natural skin tones, and is ideal for keen photographers.Claria Photo HD Ink delivers smooth tonal gradations, deep natural blacks and rich, vibrant colours. This six-colour ink set features the standard CMYK inks, as well as Light Cyan and Light Magenta inks, to create an extensive colour gamut.
With individual ink cartridges you only have to replace the colour used, saving you money. Claria Photo HD Ink cartridges are available in standard and XL sizes, with page yields displayed clearly on each pack to aid your purchasing decision. And what's more, identifying the right ink cartridge for your printer couldn’t be simpler – just look out for the Elephant image.

The XP-950 has its own email address, so you can take a photo anywhere in the world and email it back home – or to another Epson printer owned by family, friends or a colleague. It works the other way, too; add someone's email address to your list of Approved Senders and they can print photos or documents straight to your XP-950.

Save paper, save money
Save paper and reduce your carbon footprint. Able to print on both sides of the paper – or duplex – the XP-950 instantly cuts your paper usage in half. After all, while we all find paper documents handy to refer to, no one wants to carry around any more paper than they absolutely have to either. And, of course, this has the added bonus of saving you money too.
Print from Facebook and more
