Interview and Review - Epson SureLab D3000 DryLab Printer

Epson Surelab D3000 Drylab Printer

This interview was conducted on November 29th with Jeff Lucido, Director of Sales for It Supplies.


Matthew: When were you first introduced to the Epson Surelab D3000?

Jeff: “I first saw it at Graph Expo this past October.”


Matthew: What exactly is the D3000?

Jeff: “This is a mini-dry lab that comes packaged with software to give a photo studio the ability to print more jobs in house.”








Matthew: What was your initial impression of the D3000?

Jeff: “Well Matt, I was blown away! I couldn’t believe the color quality and clarity that was coming out of this machine. All the customers I have shown samples to were equally impressed. This product is going to work very well for photo studios that want to do their own printing. This will not only reduce the turnaround time for customers to get their prints, but will also increase the studio’s profit margins.”


Matthew: Does anyone have a product like this right now?

Jeff: “This is a brand new line for Epson, but some other manufacturers do have some similar products; Fuji Fontier DL-430, Fuji Fontier DL-600 and Noritsu D1005 HR.”


Matthew: Why would someone buy this product over some of the other products already out there?

Jeff: “Epson has been known for their quality in the inkjet market and this printer is no exception. You’ll be able to produce up to 12” wide photo prints with better quality that you are used to getting from a photo lab. Not only is this printer backed with Epson’s great service, the D3000 is priced very competitively.”


Matthew: Any Comments to close?

Jeff: Thanks for stopping by.  We are really excited for the release of this product and anticipate a solid response from photo studios and print shops looking for new ways to expand their offerings and increase margins in 2013.
