    I'm mostly just curious, but you're apparently from Korea, yet your work is primarily in English. Is that common?

    As for your work, I like it. The warm, dark reds, browns and amber hues have...

    Your website will always reflect the kind of business you offer so it is just in time that you update your client's website. I like the large header, but the text on the upper portion of it looks dated....

    Looks like a bull right but it needs a little bit of polishing and enhancements. Bulls have basically long, curved very pointed horns so you can work on that. And maybe fiercer eyes....

  • coating paper for a 9600

    I've been using an epson 9600 for a while now and have been told repeatily by epson and some suppliers that you need to use a special coated paper by epson or someone else for the ultrachrome to look good. they also said it could clog and ruin the machine.

    I agree that it will look better if coated but clogging the machine is bull, they just want me to buy their stuff at 1000% markup!!

    Now i found this guy online who uses other stuff than special epson media but says it should be coated for good colors.

    My question is, what do i couat the paper with, is it an areosol?

    anyone ever use something other than what they are supposed to in a 9600 with ultrachrome ink?

    Thanks

    No, you don't coat the paper with aerosol. You buy it coated. It is usually a gel (gloss) or a chalk (matte) coating that sucks the ink in and holds it for better image quality. You don't have to buy Epson paper - their stuff is very expensive. You can buy HP, Kodak, canon, Xerox or any (coated for inkjet) stock you want. There are a lot of inkjet paper suppliers. Some will just react better with certain inks. Try them out. Don't be afraid. The inkjet heads don't actually touch the paper.
