Re: [BKARTS] inkjet printing (again)!



Hi Sandy

Yes, uncoated papers sop up the ink and spread. This may be a pleasant
effect for some art work, but looks like mud with many photographic images.

You can coat nearly any paper yourself with InkAid. It is a water based
coating you apply with a sponge brush.
Check out www.InkAid.com

I did not know the 2200 had a straight path. You can also use inkaid to coat
other substrates like board, metal, etc.

You are right about Epson Inks. I do not particularly trust their archival
longevity, but they yiled beautiful prints and most papers and profiles are
aimed at them and life is far less complicated.

Let me know how you fare.

Michael, Do you find that with uncoated papers that your colors are muted or
even muddied? If not how do you take care of that. Sandy
