how do you keep ink from bleeding on glossy paper?
Posted 19 April 2003 - 05:47 PM
i was playing around with the settings, and have found the least ink bleeding occured when i chose 'plain paper' instead glossy photo paper in the print settings, and 'automatic' as the mode. this reduced the amount of ink released onto the paper, but there's still a noticeable degree of bleeding. /forums/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif
i'm using photoshop to print the images. any ideas?

i think i've tried the glossy/photo inkjet paper setting and it slapped way too much ink on, making the bleeding worse. i haven't tried the glossy film setting though, i'll give that a try. i'm not sure how its possible to load paper in backwards? i might need some clarification there.
thanks for the advice. /forums/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Some papers (pictorico photo quality high gloss film for one) do not have any printing on the back side, and since it is a heavily coated paper, it is easy to mistake the back for the front. They look identical, but the back doesn't receive the ink well and smears.
That HP paper just might never print properly on the Epson.
Epson has several light weight papers that you could try.
All-Purpose Glossy Paper-38lb 6.7mil
Photo Quality Glossy Film-47lb 5mil
