Bright and vivid on Canon prograf 1000

Hi All,

I'm a long time printer, typically printing my own commercial portfolio and having good results mostly. Lately I've been working on pop-art type of images and coming up with bright vivid colors that look great on the computer. Of course. Getting them through the printer is a different matter.

Here's a rough gallery: https://www.jasondaileyphoto.com/kansas-icons

So far the magenta and greens are coming out perfect. The darker blues are coming out really, really dark. I was able to push the brightness up on the magenta/greens to get a good print with detail. I don't seem to be able to do the same with the blue. If I brighten it enough in PS the detail is overwhelmed and disappears.

Printing on mac catalina, photoshop, canon print studio pro on Moab Entrada rag bright 300...

Maybe a different paper might not suck up all the ink so much?

Before I keep test printing my bank accounts dry thought I'd ask here.

Any thoughts, ideas on how to get some of the darker colors to punch up and keep detail? Or should I start reworking the images and avoid problematic colors?

Thanks!
