    Hello:

    It is not often people write emails or letters of praise but consider this one of the rare ones!
    I must say, ordering your product was about the easiest imaginable. Coupled with the fact that it arrived here basically “next day” I am thoroughly happy. To tell you the truth, I was expecting to have to go pay full retail for one black cartridge thinking that your’s would take at least a week to arrive but I was wrong, the order arrived before I could even go out to get one!
    Congrats people, I WILL tell all my friends and neighbours about you!

Inkjet Photo Printing (As Easy as 123)

A few quick tips.

It is important to make sure your printer is properly set up for the type of printing you will be performing.

This means matching 2 printer variables.

a) Quality

b) Paper Type

When you set the printer to high (Photo) quality it uses finer ink droplets for a higher resolution and prints in 2 passes.

Paper type

Paper types vary wildly, and this is the most important characteristic in ensuring your highest quality.

Paper types come in

a) Standard

b) Inkjet Quality

c) Matte

d) Photo

a) Standard is what is used by photocopy print machines… Although good for Laser Printers it doesn’t have a sealed(waxed) coating and so when used with a inkjet printer the ink, when it hits the surface, it spreads like a drop of water on a blotter…Making the image unclear…

b) Inkjet Quality the paper is treated to minimize the spreading of the ink by the application of a wax like coating there-bye allowing the ink to dry without spreading significantly

c) Matte has a rough finished like matte pictures and due to these lines requires a little more ink, to fill in the gaps, but is effectively photo quality paper.

d) Photo paper is completely coated, and the ink dries entirely on its coated surface.

a. Photo paper does have varying quality

i. Dollar Store (Coated but the ink is not absorbed into the surface allowing it to run… DO Not use Dollar Store Photo Paper

ii. Manufacturers grade (High quality specifically designed for their printers/inks)

If using a Epson printer I highly recommend using Epson Photo Paper (Get it at Costco Cheap)

Inks

OEM Inks are always best for archival photo’s but the third party (Compatible) inks have come along way with their retentivity…

I have been actually

a) scanning old faded  photo’s

b) retouching them and enhancing the colors

c) reprinting them (TO Replace old worn pictures)

for 5 years and haven’t seen any fading what so ever even when leaving these new photos exposed to light….

So

If you want outstanding pictures to print on your Epson printer….

All these setting can be found under printer properties

(Devices/printers, Select Printer, Right click & select Preferences/and or Maintenance)

a) Make sure the heads are clean before you start by performing a Nozzle Check before you start…

b) Set up the printer for the correct paper type  (Photo)

c) Set up the printer for Photo Quality

Enjoy…….
