Quality beyond compare
The Artisan 50 delivers vibrant color photos and crisp, clear text. Working in tandem with Claria® Hi–Definition Ink, the “smart nozzles” in Epson’s exclusive MicroPiezo® print head deliver up to five droplet sizes, some as small as 1.5 picoliters, to produce exceptionally smooth gradations, amazingly accurate skin tones and sharp, grain–free photos.
|Professional looking CDs/DVDs |
Now there’s no need to use messy labels or markers in order to personalize CDs and DVDs. With this innovative feature from Epson, you can make professional looking discs that are easy to identify by printing your images and text right onto ink jet printable CDs/DVDs. (Software included)
Perfect photos, every time
Now you don’t have to discard poorly exposed photos. Thanks to smart photo enhancement features from Epson, you can make your pictures look the way you intended them to look. Built–in Auto Photo Correction automatically evaluates and corrects digital images — better than the competition. It even includes advanced face detection, which distinguishes people from scenery, correcting the color accordingly to ensure beautiful, natural skin tones. With the Artisan 50, you can also remove red eye. It’s like having your own photo lab right at home.
Versatile paper handling
It’s never been easier to get what you want, when you want it. With the Artisan 50’s adjustable paper tray, you can print a variety of things, from 4x6 photos to legal–size documents. And, it’s just as easy to print on both sides of the paper. With manual, two–sided printing1, you’ll save money and paper. 1
Worry–free handling of photos
With the Artisan 50, you get professional quality photos that are smudge, scratch, water and fade resistant, so you can handle them right after printing. Place them in an album or share them with family and friends, worry–free.
Prints that outlast photo lab prints
Six–color Claria Hi–Definition Ink, together with Epson premium photo papers, offers the ultimate combination of photo quality and longevity. Prints made with Claria ink last up to four times longer than those from a traditional photo lab2. Photos last up to 98 years on display under glass and over 200 years in an album. Photos from the leading competitor last only 65 years on display under glass. With Epson, you can feel confident in sharing your prints for generations to come.
Fast print speeds
This speedy printer keeps up with your busy life. Print brilliant 4x6 photos in as fast as 11 seconds. The Artisan 50 is just as impressive when it comes to everyday documents like e-mails, driving directions, term papers and more, delivering maximum print speeds up to 38 pages per minute color/37 pages per minute black.
Sleek, compact design
Enjoy the best of both worlds: compact design and powerful performance. With Artisan, you get quality and speed, without sacrificing space or a stylish design. Sleek and chic, Artisan fits your lifestyle and your décor.
Individual ink cartridges – replace only the color you need
Six individual ink cartridges give you control over ink usage. Replace only the cartridge you need! Claria ink is also available in high-capacity cartridges to accommodate higher volume print needs, giving you about 60% more prints than with the standard cartridge.
Product protection you can count on
The Artisan 50 comes with a 1–year limited warranty, which includes a quick product exchange benefit. So, you can rest easy, knowing you have dependable service and support.
Be more informedThe new international ISO print speed standard
Print speed is critically important when buying a printer or all-in-one. But how do you compare print speeds when different manufacturers measure in different ways? Now you can. Much like the "MPG" ratings on new cars, there's now a new industry standard for measuring print speed, which allows for an "apples-to-apples" comparison between different printer models and brands. The International Organization for Standardization (widely known as ISO) developed this industry approved and internationally accepted standard, specifically for ink jet printers and all-in-ones. It measures "out of the box" (default) print speeds using "real world" printing scenarios, so you can be sure you're getting a product that performs at the speed you need.

I swear to gawd, you can't make this crap up. As is well known, it only requires one cartridge requiring replacement in an Artisan model to disable the entire machine. Meaning that if you have a black print job to do and the yellow or light magenta cartridge is below it's functional level (usually meaning 30-40% of the ink remains but can't be used due to the technology they installed to rip people off), you can't finish your black only print job. And NO...every one of the six colors is NOT required to print black like I have heard some wags out there stating falsely. Even if that were true, in an emergency where you needed to print a single black text page out, you couldn't even print it in lighter gray to get by. If you buy the non-OEM cartridges you might...Read more ›
and they are pretty good - until you run out of ink.
The Ink can print you about 2-3 months worth if used every
other day or so. But our customers, including ourselves,
have had nothing but head aches when it comes to changing
Ink Cartridges. 47 Customers have complained it will NOT
ACCEPT 'GENUINE' Epson Cartridges. We owned 4 of them and
all 4 are currently wrapped up in their boxes ready to throw
out or send to a recycling center. All 4 printers
printed through 1 ink cycle - then they started rejecting all
ink replacements. We bought ink here at Amazon - rejected.
We tried the tech trick of pulling out the electrical cord,
and the USB cord, and it did accept 2 or 3 cartridges,
but eventually it started to reject all of them in time.
Keep in mind this printer has gotten fairy good reviews
the past year - some individuals are being successful
with the printer but we suspect many reviews were
written before their 1st ink cycle went dry.
We noticed that (after installing the printers) The Epson
software started accessing the internet (or at least trying
to). This was to block any 3rd party Ink cartridges - because
on one of the printers that WAS NOT on the internet - it actually
acceptable 1 black ink 3rd party cartridge. The rest were
rejected - even the "Genuine" Epson Cartridges.
Its difficult enough to have to purchase expensive
"Genuine" ink for these printers - but to have them
rejected by your fairly new printer is appalling. We
have over 46 "genuine" ink cartridges that have been
returned to us (we no longer sell the ink).Read more ›
This is the 6th Epson printer we've used. When printing out from Adobe Illustrator on all previous models, the size of the printout exactly matches the design.
When trying to print CD inserts on our new Artisan 50, booklets that are designed to be 119.5mm, end up being almost 125mm. May not sound like much, but once they're cut, they don't fit in the CD box. It's very slow and tedious to modify all our layouts that are on file.
Previous models capable of printing on CD's (such as the Stylus Photo R300) were dead on accurate.
The other annoying problem is that you can't print from Illustrator directly to CD any longer. That was a great feature of the R300. In the Artisan 50, you have to use their amateurish CD print utility.
