  • 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.

      Since you are not a designer, my suggestion for a fix would be to find a local pro to work it up for you.
      On the other hand, if the company owner is happy with it, changing it up is probably not...

      May be just my screen, but the yellow is really hard to see against the gray. I had to zoom in to see that it was an exclamation and graduation hat.

      I hate how the hat was placed on the...

      Well, for one thing, the colors will have to be different, but even if you had posted this in all-black, I'd have said this:
