Re: photo paper to work with generations ink



Gerald,
I am not using the denser black ink because when I asked them about it they
said it would not have as good archival properties as the normal black ink
they provide.  Although I read your earlier post about the new blacker
black, I switched to generations to get archival properties and what they
said about the new black seemed to be at odds with my goals.
  When I got the sample pack with the double matte paper and printed some
landscape photos it seemed to look good.  Now that I bought some more, I am
trying to print faces and am having a hard time getting anything that
resembles the results of printing generations ink on epson photo quality ink
jet paper (which I have gotten to look pretty close to the OEM ink effect).
I can  print at 720 using a plain paper setting and get the colors close but
the resolution is not great.  At 1440 I get strange effects (something like
posterization).  I have fooled around with different printer settings but
have not been able to get anything to work at the high resolution settings.

Am I expecting too much from this paper?  Do you have suggestions for
printer settings at the higher resolution?

Barry
