  • 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.

      I believe (not sure) that you might still be able to outright buy CS6 directly from Adobe, but you had to physically call them and process it somehow over the phone (and they may discourage you every...

      Thank you, I'm glad you like them.

      I am considering using a different color for the portrait and the background, but I'm not sure yet how to manage it.

      These will be produced on an offset printer with a spot resolution of 1200 lpi. The plan is one spot color on each card, with no tints.

      I decided to give this a go. I think I prefer the original pattern, but the results are here for you to decide for yourself.

      Unless you find a CS6 the answer would by no. You are at the mercy of your subscription to Adobe.
      Also no telling how much longer they will support CS6.
