Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer
I've tried printing to card blanks to create greetings cards but the ink becomes smuged (especially on black colours) almost like the paper is acting as blotting paper. I'm using good quality card (300gsm) which the supplies have advised is suitable for inkjet printing. Can you give me any pointers on what I may be doing wrong? Can you advise as to card types that would be suitable and where I might locate them? Thanks
The solution in this case is to either use Canon card paper to print on
or set the media type in your printer driver to the correct paper.
The paper you are using is not absorbing the ink correctly, so when the paper exits the machine the rollers are contacting the ink and causing the smudging.
Either you have to alter how much ink is being used by changing the media type in the printer driver, or you have to buy the correct Canon paper
I've seen this happen on Canon's Photo printers when a generic glossy paper was used. Switching to canon paper solved the problem.
