GRANDVILLE, Mich. -- X-Rite (NASDAQ:XRIT) today announced that Epson will bundle X-Rite premium ICC profiles, Complete Guide to Color Management publication, and a demo version of MonacoEZcolor color management software with each Epson Stylus Photo R2400. The Epson Stylus Photo R2400 is a revolutionary printer that uses the new Epson UltraChrome K3(TM) ink and delivers large, archival prints worthy of gallery display.
