Are the print settings different then before. Has anything changed? Have you done a re-alignment of the print cartridges?

Heat transfer mug without coating


Hi!

Sublimation Printing is the most common printing method on mugs. By theory, sublimation is offset printing from a transfer paper to your substrate (which is your mug). Mug Coating is important since the coat is composed of Polyurethane paint which is where the Sub-Inks adhere into. Without a Polyurethane coat, the Sub-Inks will not stick to the surface of the mugs. What you can do in order to print on non-coated mugs is to coat those mugs yourself using Polyurethane paints that you can buy at hardware stores. These are usually used in automotive painting and may cause you a bit for each can.

You have to remember though that Polyurethane paints dries longer than enamels and prolonged exposure to these types of paints is hazardous to your health.

It would still be best for you to look for pre-coated mugs to save on production time and, well, efforts.

And yes, I have tried the above tricks personally as I am also engaged in crafts business...

I want to use photo paper to print photos and the printer tells me I do not have the correct paper


When you give a print command (ctrl + P) You have the possibility to select the Print Properties. If you press that button, there has to be somewhere a possibility to select the right kind of paper. I don't know which kind of printer you have. This works well with inkjet printers. The settings in your driver has to match the paper you use.
If you have a dye sublimation printer (there is no ink, but a ribbon with coloured dye) you need the right brand of paper, because otherwise your printer doesn't detect the paper.

I want to print in white ink on black paper. I have a Canon MX310 printer


Inkjet printer inks are dye-based, and that's the reason.

Perhaps this will help explain things. You know those little boxes of food colouring you can buy in the supermarket - the ones that have four little bottles of colour - red, blue, yellow and green. Within reason you can combine these to turn white icing into most colours. Use nothing and the icing is still white or use everything and the icing will go a black-brown colour. Use a couple of drops of red and blue and you'll get purple.

But if you start with black icing, there's nothing you can add that will make it anything but black.

It's the same with your inkjet printer - because white is obtained by not having any ink print on the white paper. But of course that only works when the paper is white. Naturally you'll get different results on all colours of paper, decreasing as the paper gets darker in colour. Print blue on yellow paper and you should get green printing.

The only way to print in white is to do what commercial printers do - use opaque inks and include a white ink in the process. And as far as I know there's no commercial ink that will do that with an inkjet printer.

I can hear lots of you muttering "Rubbish. Of course you can print light colours on dark paper." Well all I can say is, have fun experimenting, but you won't be able to do it.

About the only way to achieve the sort of result you may be after is to print the job then trim it and paste it in place. For instance, if you want to print onto a black or dark-coloured T-shirt then print onto white transfer material, trim the print to size and iron it in place.

I just purchased the Ricoh GX7000 for sublimation. Unfortunately, my son set up the printer and did not realize the inks that come with it are not to be installed. He did. I have not printed anything, but...


I would call your vendor. Or if you bought the sawgrass technologies ink, give tech support a call and have them help you download the necessary ICC profile for your printer. Often they can walk you through setup. You will need to delete the current one you son installed.

How to set my printer to print black ink only


Option 1 - when printing, go to printer settings and select 'Plain Paper' as the Media Type. If any other paper type is selected, color ink will be used to create black. The pigment black ink will only be used when printing on plain paper. Check the box for 'Grayscale Printing'. If either 'Borderless Printing' or 'Duplex Printing' are enabled from the Page Setup tab, grayscale will be created using a combination of the color (dye) inks to prevent smearing.
I tried this once myself, but the result seemed to be useless for printing photographs.

Option 2 - Using quadtone inks may be the solution. http://www.completedigitalphotography.com/?p=32

Does not print


Hi,
First of all please check the ink level. If it is not finished try followings:

First try to run a cleaning cycle. To do that:
- Load paper in the paper tray. - Access printer utilities. (Right click your printer icon, select printing preferences and click the utility tab to access printer utilities) - Click the nozzle check icon. - Print to check it.
Then click the clean button to clean the print head. - Try it a few times.
İf it doesn't help you can try to run power cleaning cycle. But it uses much ink. There must be enough ink in the cartridge.
Hope this helps.

Can print paper but photos have green tint


If you refilled the ink cartridges, this can happen. Kodak uses pigment based inks, the others use dye based inks. Also, make sure your printer is set for normal photo printing, rather than special effects.

Black colour ?


Thats because it's using the other colours to mix what it thinks to be shades of grey. Due to the black ink being pigment based and the colours inks dye base, when printing onto glossy paper the machine will use the colour dye based inks to make up black. 
If you were to print on plain paper, set to greyscale, then the machine will just use the black as the pigment ink sits onto of the plain paper and will not run should the paper get wet.  With glossy paper the ink has to be absorbed into the paper ad the Black pigment ink will not do this so the machine will use the coloured inks.

Sucks but true.
