You don't have to. I was confusing "matte paper" with "matte paper setting." In case you missed the previous postings, I copied and pasted below. ------------------------------ Marie, No, no. The thread was about C80 printing on glossy paper. The reference to matte is to the *media setting* in the driver not the paper. I said you get better results using a matte paper setting when printing on glossy paper because all four inks are used, CMY and K, instead of just CMY, which is what you get if you use one of the glossy paper media choices, CMY only - the black is weaker. However, when you print all four inks on glossy paper (or semi-gloss or luster for that matter) the black ink is not fully compatible in that it sits on the surface and mars easily. To use all four C80 inks on glossy paper you would need to spray a glossy over spray which is unnecessary and highly undesirable when printing on matte paper. Black ink does not rub off of matte paper. Wayne On 6/12/02 6:55 AM, "Marie T." <email@example.com> wrote: > Matte would be fine. In fact, I bought Epson's matte to use.
