Canvas color faded/washed out upon printing on 3880?
9 months ago

Hello,

I have some Anasazi canvas here and wasted a few sheets this morning (first time printing on this style) I have an epson 3880 and am using the correct icc profile with "perceptual" (is that correct?) and am using the correct side of the canvas based on the label. It is dull and nowhere close to maximum black. I did not know which type of paper to choose in the photoshop page setup dialogue. I tried both canvas settings and also a watercolor one, and they all look washed out. Does anyone know which paper type setting I should be using, and is there a better icc profile for it or something else I have tod o?  It used the matte black cartridge which I normally don't use.

I would also be interested in hearing the most fool-proof system for stretching/mounting them, I have read about them a lot here but really can't tell which works best/easiest.

Thank you!
