make sure you select 3 Ink Level on ekrip.
Also you need a good pre-treatment, if you don't do it correctly it will look faded and low quality.

Maybe your white ink is not good enough ? Is it dupont ?

I use
Color: Light / ink level=1 / Vivid (not too much color)
-Superfine

White: Medium / ink level=1 / Density=300% (you can up this to (350%) - this will dump a good white
contrast = -10
opacity = +40 (more white)
-Superfine (Set this in the ink utilities setting)

If this white setting still not good then you might have a pretreatment issue.

Depending on the acrorip version you have 7,8.1,8.23 the printer settings need to be changed to roll I have 8.1 on a ufo industrial base, and with a 3800 it had to be in sheet mode. On the 3880 model in 8.23 it only works on roll mode. PM me if you're needing more information on the settings based on the model of printer, I've used both.

When I choose level 3 it makes my 3880 do 3 different passes. It doesn't just drop it in one pass. I don't have this issue when using my 600.
