The best option would be to have a custom profile made for the particular paper you are printing on. Absent that, yes - selecting "Epson 1290" would be a better choice, as it would call upon the Epson standard profile to do the color conversion, and if you read a thread about a month ago the Epson standard profile would adjust ink-color amounts according to the paper setting. In general it works well, but not as perfectly as a custom profile.
