Ye newsMay, 2005. has revamped its line of Ultrachrome printers with a new series that takes the 8-color Ultrachrome K3 ink set. The new models include the (13 inches wide; 0 USD), (17 inches wide; ,000 USD), 7800 (24 inches wide; about ,000 USD), and 9800 (44 inches wide; about ,000 USD). Useful links:
