Ink smudge on corner of brochure paper

This only happens with my brochure paper... Brochures, of course, have to come out pristine! It didn't always happen, but has for the last 20 brochures I've tried... Have sent hundreds of other papers through the machine since this began, many heavy stock, and it only happens with the brochure... The very top corners (where it feeds into the machine) gets a black smudge on it. Sometimes one side-edge will get a faint black smudge-line. A. What's a good way to clean the rollers B. What else could it be? C. Why in the heck does it only happen with brochure paper? Thanks for your help, Skylake

5x7 inch paper moves towards end of print and black ink smudges edge of paper


Check for any small paper jam. Check the rollers, also use an alcohol swab to clean the rollers and check for ink leaking. Check you ink pad, it could be time for a new one.

Doesn't print on cardstock


Inkjet should always prints no matter what type of printing material you use since they only spray inks (laser will be different). Even if it is not compatible you will still see inks / smudge all over the surface. Try check your actual colour againts the paper it might be too similar hence not visible.

When I print a glossy photo print, right at the end the printer makes a noise as if its labouring and there are excess ink smudges on the corners of the print. It only happens when printing glossy paper.


i think the problem is with your print head. i have the same problem before. when i put out the print head to check. there's a lot of excess ink. this may be the reason for the ink smudges on the corners of your print. and when you set your printer to photo printing. it is programmed to put larger amount of ink than normal printing. the best way is to have your printer checked by your service center or change your printhead to a new one. goodluck!

Blurry, Ink Smeared pages


If the media (glossy paper) is designed for an ink jet printer you should be fine.

Ink has to be able to be absorbed into the fibers of the page. If you are using paper for a laser color printer, that's your problem.

TROUBLE PRINTING BROCHURES


I don't think that this is a true Postscript printer and you may be asking too much of it.  When was the last time you aligned the printer?  I'd just go to Staples or Kinko's for the better quality work
