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?
