Are you trying to print photographs on plain paper? Epson WorkForce printers are designed for fast office-type printing, not photo quality printing.
If you use photo-paper (specifically, Epson photo paper), and "best" quality setting, it should be better. Your color may not exactly match what you see on your screen, though. Welcome to the wonderful world of "color management".

Why do some prints have a greenish skin tone after appearing normal on computer screen?


Color laser printers, especially the big high end office printers, have the color capabilities you need for printing the company logo and the occasional Excel pie chart - but they are truly bad for printing photos.
But the good news is that almost any of the current generation of ink jet printers, even the cheap ones, are pretty good at printing photos - but only if you print in the printer's high quality setting on photo paper, if you use the cheap office paper you will get the same desaturated colors you got at the office.
Now, the colors in print will never be the same as on screen, especially the brightness (because the screen is a light source and he paper isn't) but you can get good results results, here are the options depending on how accurate you want the colors to be:
1. Just print in high quality on photo paper
If you like the way colors look an screen right out of camera and you never calibrated your screen than it's likely you won't notice the problem from uncalibrated printer (but it will never be the same as on screen).
This should be good enough for most people and will probably match the results you get when you get the photos printed in cheap labs.
2. Calibrate your monitor
If you're serious about getting the right colors you first need to make sure what you see on screen is really what's in the file, this will probably get you predictable results (that is, the difference between screen and printer will be predictable and you can learn to compensate).
There are several systems that will let you calibrate monitors, some are not very expensive.
This should be enough for most serious hobbyists and pros
3. Use name brand paper that has profiles available
The next step is to use good paper and get printer profiles for that paper you are using.
4. Calibrate your printer
The next step is to get a device that can calibrate both your screen and your specific printer with the specific printer you are using.
Those are definitely not cheap and this should be good enough for everyone.
5. Know when to stop
This rabbit hole goes very deep, if you want truly accurate color you might find yourself in a black shirt (to avoid reflection) in a room with gray walls and special balanced lights (to avoid color casts) manually adjusting color space conversions.

My camera doesn't show good color picture


What is the best way to manage your color management and sharpening workflow if you send your images to an online photo lab for printing, such as Snapfish or Shutterfly, instead of printing your photos yourself? In other words, how do you calibrate your monitor to see what your prints will look like when you don't own or operate the printers that will be making the prints? Marc Konowitz from Staten Island, New York

Scott: As long as you are working in a color space that they approve and you are working with a color calibrated monitor, you will be surprised at the quality you will get from various print houses. Get a color calibration device such as a Color Munki or other device.

Joe: Most of these printers will use sRGB so as long as you're shooting into sRGB or converting to sRGB then you should be happy with the results. One thing you can do is to send in some B&W prints and if then you can tell if they are coming back with any kind of a color cast.

I want to print metallic gold and gold-foil TITLES on a standard CMYK background with an Alps 5000P. What is the procedure to overlay the spot color where I want to print the gold?


Create a mask or layer for each spot color you want to print using only black. When printing spot colors anything on the mask in black will be printed in the spot color. For foils, print a couple of layers of black ink before you print the foil to get a very good effect. Remember to check the overlay option so the paper doesn't get ejected.

I have new photo (58) and color (57) carts and when I print wallet size (9 pics per 8.5x11 photo paper) the first 3 print true color and the last 6 are blue. I have cleaned the rollers and still do not...


hello, you are using the photo color ink cart, have you tried running a cleaning cycle or test print, the reason why i ask, is that maybe 1 of the colors is not printing, the test pages would prove what color is missing, if black not printing, it would print possible blue, or no black at all. i know you have put in new inks, but since the volume of ink in these cartridges run out according to usage, one color might run out before the others, and since black and yellow are the most used colors, without them your prints will show color faults.

Color printing nothing prints in color.


Hello,
A good indicator of it not working is exactly what you are getting a blank area or skectchy lines where the ink should be! You now need a new ink cartridge.

Good Luck!

Depends on what you are doing, to print black and white documents only it is better an monochrome laser. To print photos, few color and black and white documents for a home users is generally better an inkjet.
Good color laser are big and expensive.

Laser toners cartridge cost a bit more but last longer.

Generally, if you print only B&W, it is better a laser.
If you print some documents and you want to print photos, then get a good inkjet.
If you want to print loads of B&W and color, and you do not need to print photos, then you can buy a color laser.
