This is by far the best gloss paper I have found to work with >Lyson Fotonic inks. > This is a microceramic paper; this type of instant dry, waterproof paper offers excellent looking prints, and avoid bronzing well, since the ink spreads thoughout the ceramic layer. But the life expectancy of prints on these papers is somewhat limited since the ink is open to environmental pollutants. Anything printed on microporous papers with dye inks needs to be sealed in a frame or laminated. RIPs do offer control of ink levels; but the Epson drivers tend to print less ink in the blacks than most RIP configurations, which can print "rich" four color blacks. If you reduce the black below the 100%K level used in the RGB drivers, its not black any more... C. David Tobie Design Cooperative CDTobie@designcoop.com - Turn off HTML mail features.
