Sorry but i am about to walk out the door for a meeting, or my answer would be a little more informative.I attached print settings and photos View attachment 244457
Thanks for the reply AMW, since my original post, I actually did try the Aluminum setting, and tried it at High quality(I had a user defined paper setting of 3.5x7 and it would not let me choose high quality, so I changed it to preset of 5x7 and that let me choose high quality). These new settings didn't really help much. I tried on aluminum and plastic from [email protected] to [email protected] Still not much difference. I'm wondering if it could be my Photoshop settings, but not sure what to check. I have tried printing the same image to a color laser printer on regular paper and results are great. Is it possible I was sent the wrong profile from Cobra?Sorry but i am about to walk out the door for a meeting, or my answer would be a little more informative.
1st off your using the wrong profile, cobra ink gives you one for poly (the one your using) and one for Aluminum. Use the Aluminum profile instead. The poly one is for soft substrates...like shirts. I cant tell you exactly what its called as we make our own custom profiles.
Your quality should also be set the same as the profile says...(high quality in this case).
Is this a metal insert or a plastic one?
Yes that is dark compared to what it should look like.
Your Photoshop settings can also affect the color as well.
Hope this gets you started, good luck!
Suggest to keep Windows Color Management that is built into the OS as all defaults.View attachment 244681
Thanks for the reply. I don't see anything for saturation, but his is what I have for printer properties(Color Management)
There is but we don't want to use that. We shouldn't use that adjustment except only piecemeal on a case by case basis, and it's done in the graphic app, not the printer driver, and only if the original photo itself needs tweaked for saturation. The reason for ICC profiles is so that we don't have to do case by case tweaking, except for photos that would have needed it normally. The printer driver should not be used for any adjustment with the exception of the paper type used. We force color management off in the printer driver here on Epson.Well something's out of whack because Ally and unisub are my favourite substrates for printing on, It doesn't look like your temps are off, is there a setting to turn down saturation in printer properties?
Those settings are fine. Some use Relative colorimetric for line art and vector, illustrations, and then Perceptual for photos, but you have the correct workspace and profile handling.View attachment 244746
Hi Mike, thanks for the reply. Here are the Photoshop settings. I will try the photo on the poly fabric and submit.
Your setup is correct, the first profile CWF7110 _ poly_ PPM _ HQ _ CS/4.2 is the best overall.View attachment 244906
