Introducing the Epson® SureColor P5000SE printer.

Representing the culmination of Epson’s transition from the revered Epson Stylus® Pro Series, the SureColor P5000 integrates our latest professional imaging technologies — including our unparalleled UltraChrome HDX® pigment ink set and game-changing PrecisionCore® TFP® printhead. With the SureColor P5000, we’ve added the finishing touch to our SureColor P-Series family — but the story’s far from over.

The printer’s refined design offers improved dust and static control, while our PrecisionCore TFP printhead features ink-repellent surface coating.
