The Epson media evaluation process

All the aforementioned media vendors supply their media for Epson’s C7500/C7500G ColorWorks printers. Each has provided us with sample media of certain specifications (current as at test date) to conduct internal tests (as detailed below). Tests were performed in specific climatic conditions (23°C ±5°C, 50% ±10% humidity), on certain sample sizes (4-inch width, 4-inch x 6-inch, 68mm width and 54mm x 25.4mm) and evaluated based on Epson standards. Nonetheless, this does not constitute a guarantee or warranty to the longevity of printed images and Epson accepts no liability of any kind in respect of tested media's compatibility for every application, how it ages or any other change in a print regardless of how it is displayed. Accordingly, given the variety of factors that can affect the use and performance of the tested media, end-users are solely responsible for assessing media specifications and its intended use by first directly contacting media suppliers before making a decision to buy it, in order to determine whether it is an appropriate fit for a particular application.
