I just bought this film. Tried to print using my Canon Pixma mg6320 printer. The ink was a mess, blotchy and the ink never set, even 8 hours later. The overview says can be used with any ink but the box says Ultra Chrome or DuraBrite which are not compatible with my printer. Any suggestions?
I have an epson 3800 and found I could only print on the "chalky" side of the paper. It worked fine then.
The manufacturer indicates that this material is optimized for UltraChrome and DuraBrite inks, however this may not necessarily be a limiting factor. It's possible that:
- The incorrect media profile was selected prior to printing
- The material is not compatible with your printer's ink
- The printing was done on the wrong side (some transparent/translucent materials can only be printed on one side)
I'd suggest that you double check your material settings prior to printing and also check to make sure that material has been inserted with the printable surface in the correct orientation.
