I have a Epson pro large format 9600, I print on canvas, I have use Photo black since I have it, but never getting a saturation ressult. I have been counsil by Epson to use Matt black rather than Phot

"Photo black" is designed specifically for glossy photo paper. Matte black is for non-glossy paper, including plain paper. Matte black will print darker on non-glossy paper than photo black does.

My Epson L200 printer does not pick even 130 premium photo paper

The best solution for this issue is to mark the lower right corner of the glossy paper using a black marker or a pencil this will let the sensor detect something it works perfectly when I'm printing on a glossy paper.
