So, does anyone know a better non-OEM gloss optimizer for R1900/R2000 that wouldn't produce blurred images nor would be susceptible to paper roller marks? OCP, Image Specialists, Conecolor, or any off-brand GO?


What I recall of Digital B&W forum threads is that the Image Specialists GO (MIS etc) is a bit yellow and reduces bronzing better than the OEM gloss enhancer. So that is correct.

The bleeding of dots that happens with your paper and media preset should in theory be solved with better paper coatings, more ink limitation, slower printing. If there is no choice you can also split the color printing run from the GO print run. The drying in between will be enough.

Or skip GO at all and use a spray or wax that also gives a much better protection.
