For every artist, the canvas in which they use to pour their soul out is essential. Each stroke of colour is an expression, part of a story and masterpiece.
Dzul Afiq Zakaria is an artist and storyteller who uses art to tell stories through abstract pieces. Through a combination of colour and composition in harmony, each piece reflects his thoughts, feelings and memories.
He is a practitioner artist pursuing his PhD studies in Art Philosophy at University Malaya. Most of his assignments relates to design printing, advertising and art. So, Dzul needs to test print to check colour correction before he sends his design for final printing. He usually prints more than one copy and his usage is considered heavy.
A printer creates the canvas in which the painting or artwork is expressed upon as a test print. As part of his artwork, he relies on Epson EcoTank L3150 Wi-Fi All-in-One Ink Tank Printer to print out test prints for his artwork.
Previously, before using Epson EcoTank L3150 Wi-Fi All-in-One Ink Tank Printer, he faces issues with the cartridge of ‘normal’ printers. The cartridge is small and it’s a single cartridge which can only print a few pages. Sometimes when one of the cartridges runs out of ink, he will not be able to complete his work until he replaces the empty cartridge which is a waste of time and money.
The Epson EcoTank L3150 Wi-Fi All-in-One Ink Tank Printer comes in a compact and sleek design with useful interface. Within a week, Dzul finds it easy to use, printing is smooth and there is no damage or dirt on the prints. He can even print from his smartphone, thanks to the wireless feature.
Based on Dzul’s experience, the quality of the prints is superb. His work as an artist and designer requires him to do colour test for test prints before proceeding to the final print. According to him, the printer colour quality is excellent with colour accuracy up to 90 percent.
The printer has a high printing resolution of 5760dpi and a fast print speed of up to 10ipm for black and 5.0ipm for colour. Colour correction is important, Dzul sometimes designs and paints from his computer when he needs to print a printing catalogue. The Epson EcoTank L3150 Wi-Fi All-in-One Ink Tank Printer helps him by reducing the number of test prints which saves time and money.
The printer features a single colour system. Instead of changing the whole cartridge, the user only needs to change the colour that is empty. This is convenient for Dzul as he is a heavy user and he doesn’t need to modify his printer with an external ink tank. He saves costs, as each bottle of ink has an ultra-high yield of 7,500 for colour and 4,500 for black.
Dzul can place the printer anywhere he wants. He puts it on his bookshelf because of its compact size and wireless feature.
