Hi, the pictures I've posted show printouts from both the paper cassette and from the rear feeder. The problem seems to exist (in varying degrees) in both.

remove carts, turn off for 5 minutes, turn on, reinstall carts

you should probably pickup some carts/cis from cobra, or inkjetcarts.us (or their uk equivalent),
so you won't get that yellow shift and also save yourself a bunch of money

Your earlier suggesting of leaving the printer in sleep mode rather than turning it off seems to have helped somewhat. The blobbing on the paper edges is minimal now.

I do want to find another supplier of pigments inks here in the U.K.

Open to suggestions from anyone with experience?

Epson printers are good for this, especially when printing anything near the edge or printing on paper that comes from a roll or thick paper. Have you tried setting the printer to print thick paper? There also might be dust or a hair under your print head and when that hair or dust touches the end of the paper it throw out alot of ink. My Epson used to do this too. You can try cleaning under the print head. Take a single sheet of a paper towel and fold it lengthwise into a 1" strip. Add a little rubbing alcohol to the paper towel. Press the ink button to move the carriage over like you were changing cartridges. Place the paper towel where the print head goes across and press it down. Now move the print head over the paper towel a couple of times and it will clean any dust or hair under head. i have done this for years to clean the bottom of the print head.

I was having a problem like this with my 1430. When it was coming to printing near the end of the design, as in the finish, I kept hearing this clicking noise and then getting smears at the edge of the paper. What was happening was the paper was curling, and like someone else had mentioned, the printhead was hitting the curl in the paper, thereby rubbing against the paper and dumping ink on the paper. Now when I insert paper, I curl it under a bit so when it gets to that end of the paper, the corner was no longer curling upward.

Same happens to me, although it does only happen when I dont use the original cartridges. Usually a few printhead cleans and print alignment does the trick. Also, if I dont use it for a number of days same happens all over again

I have a WF-7610 and haven't had any problems printing. I used to use 3rd party inks until I got a second unit of an Epson that I had used for years and all of a sudden I had multiple problems so I ditched the 3rd party inks and have not had a problem since.

I too had this issue until I changed the print speed. Unclick the high speed box in the settings. I always run a head cleaning at the beginning of the day, but don't have issues after that. I'm using 3rd party sublimation ink in a CIS system and run RGB colors for best color matching.

If I can be of any help, please don't hesitate to email or respond here. I'm not sure if it's ok for me to mention on this forum where I get my ink...?

Yup Chris109 is correct. Curl all 4 corners so they don't hit the head. I had exact same problem.

I have the same printer and had the same problem. I'd agree with others its usually because of curled paper, not the inks. Just make sure it's not curling too much and it will be fine.

Also if it does happen and covers your reg marks, just cut off the marks from a different sheet and stick it over the ruined one, this works.

That's a good idea about using the reg marks from a different sheet

Thanks I tried un-clicking the 'high-speed' option this morning and running a print head clean before printing. Although I think the edges of the paper weren't curled down enough as I still experienced some black ink blobs on the edges of the paper.

I'd be interested to know where you get your inks form? I think it's just self-promotion which is frowned upon.

It wouldn't be self promotion unless one is pitching or suggesting inks they are selling.

i'd try using only official ink mate. i know it's sounds like a cop-out but this happened to me a few years back with a Brother A3 printer. All i ever used were 'alternative' cartridges and, whilst it gave me a good couple of years, when it started to blob and smear, it never resolved itself fully.
I've had an Epson since and it has never done this. All i use are Epson ink replacements. More expensive for sure, but you can usually find deals on ebay or the like.
My 2 cents.
