I have never liked the behavior of the Kodak papers with Epson inks, so have never tried mounting them. I have mounted several other papers with no problems, but you should not try the Canon or Epson Glossy Films if I remember correctly. They just don't 'stick'. The Kodak papers do not seem to me to absorb Epson inks well, so I would guess that this is what you are seeing...ink that simply stays on the paper surface, then transfers in part to the release paper. Try some Epson Photo Paper just to verify my experience. I have prints hanging all over the house testing 'fade' from mounting or laminating...some behind glass, some not. bob snow - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
