The Epson Stylus Pro 7600 Series is a wide format photographic computer printer developed and manufactured by Epson. The machine has a maximum resolution of 2880 by 1440 dpi, and may be used with either 7-color Epson UltraChrome Ink or with 6-color Epson Photographic Dye Ink.

"Purging" the ink from a computer printer allows the remaining old ink in the printer to be removed before installing a fresh, new ink cartridge. Ink purging allows the device to print at its optimal capabilities, preventing old ink from either clogging the printer head or hurting the quality of the printed product.
