Color print not coming proper on 300 gsm cards


Well, I think that is over spec for your machine. Are you using a coated stock? What type, gloss, silk, matte? Is your paper cut 18 x 12?

Hi Juliet

EPSON STYLUS 1400 INKJET PRINTER PHOTO PAPER AND PRINTER SETTINGS

Formulating solutions based on remote diagnostics with just the detail in the question to go by is an inevitably imprecise science. We therefore aim to give our suggestions as wide an ambit as possible to cover all possible scenarios, abilities and experience levels. I suppose the best approach to initial FixYa solutions is to see them as an options list from which you can cherry pick the most relevant and practical ones. The Comment Box then provides the opportunity to fine tune the information flowing both ways. An updated picture after implementation of the relevant suggestions and additional background (such as whether the printer printed properly before and what paper choice of print setting changes since then may have caused the problem to first occurr, the remedies you have already tried, the specifications of you computer and its Opreating System) can then lead to more tailored suggestions.

There are many different types of Photo Paper and your Epson Printer has different Print Settings for each type. Matte paper, at the microscopic level, has more surface area than smoother papers and therefore has greater absorptive properties which, in turn, require a larger than usual amount of ink in order to produce an image with good resolution, than is the case for smoother papers. So Matte setting on a less absorbent paper type can cause excess ink issues and the problems you describe. The correct setting for each type of paper is the setting matching what is printed on the packaging of each respective type of paper (fabric, textured, matte, soft gloss, semi-gloss, gloss, high gloss, ultra gloss, premium gloss, etc).

Start > Control Panel > printers and faxes > right click on Epson Stylus 1400 icon > printing preferences > main > select 'Photo' or 'Best Photo' > click on the arrow next to 'Type' to reveal the drop down menu to select each Photo Paper Type you test > Apply > OK > restart printer > test Photo Printing again.

It is, for creative reasons, possible to deliberately use mismatched Photo Papers and Print Settings for artistic effect, but the results are unpredictable and matte settings for smoother, less absorbent papers can cause similar problems to those you describe. My advice to you would be to buy a variety of small packs of different papers to experiment with. Your enhanced aesthetic instincts will help you identify the best paper for the outcome you envisage. As a place to start, please consider examples of potential paper ideas by clicking on or copy/pasting-to-browser the links/URLs below:

So, please just set the printer settings to match each type of paper you trial to be 100% safe but there is also some margin for experimentation. With this in mind, you should be fine.


I hope this helps.

Hi. my photo printing results is not so good on normal paper. plz tell me vat is the problem. i want to print photo in best resolution on ordinary paper.i.e (Double A paper)


Printing photos on ordinary paper do not come out well because the ink soaks into the paper like a blotter. I suggest you use semi-gloss or high gloss photo paper for best photo quality prints..

Canon I960 inkjet printer color shifts


We are experiencing something simillar with our imagepress. As far as I know, every heavily used Canon (or used for a longer period of time) tends to skew colors towards magenta a little bit. We are dealing with it by reducing magenta in color balance menu for all jobs on the printer, but the result is never perfect (especially in grey where is needed perfect balance of colors).

Epson stylus k3 r2400


Hi Lisa
The R2400 has the choice of two black inks, MK and PK. One is for Matt printing, the other (called photo black) is for gloss.
If the printer has the matt cartridge fitted it only allows suitable options, including paper choice, to be selected. If you change the black cartridge from the MK to the PK one, you should then have the choice of gloss paper.

Samsung CPL-300 Color Laser Printer Problem W/ Labels


I work in the comercial printing game, what your describing sounds like the surface finish used on these labels is only suited to black toner. Black requires the least amount of heat to set, where as colours require more radient heat the lighter the colour gets from black. Try printing a black/monotone lable and see if you still get this blistering problem.

Phaser 7300n Printing on Double Sided Glossy Paper


At first I didn't think the paper was the problem, but I looked up the specs on it and is seems to be a paper designed for an offset press.
I suspect after reading the information on the paper that the coating is not designed for the high temperatures of a laser printiers fuser heat of over 350 degrees.
I do suspect the paper is the issue.
sounds like you are melting the coating.
