It sound to me as if it is getting too much ink. Check you paper setting to see what it is set for to make sure it is set for photo paper; if it is you might want to run a smaller test print with it set to photo glossy paper which will cut down on the amount of ink. Check the test print to see if it looks ok. If no, I have run out of suggestions; if yes, then try the larger print and see if it lays flatter than you found with the prints of that size under the photo quality setting. I have not experienced that problem on my larger 11 X 17 prints; but then again, I am using Epson photo glossy paper set to the photo film setting. What I have found is a different sort of problem with the large papers. like large photographic papers, the large heavier weight papers tend to crease and get kinks in them very easily with any sort of rough handling and those kinks and creases really show up on glossy paper. :-( -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of B. Twieg Sent: Friday, February 11, 2000 9:14 PM To: Epson-inkjet Subject: Waves in Epson 1200 prints Dear JetSetters: I did a nice 11X17 Epson Photo Paper print, let it dry for two days, and then put in a PrintFile plastic sleeve and pressed it with heavy books sitting on top of smooth board on the print. After a day of pressing, the print still looks wavy, though improved. It looked wavy and wet right after I printed it. Do you experience this? Do I need a dry mount press, or is there a simpler solution? I am trying more pressing tonight with more weight. I think I'm up to one US ton per square inch. Or, do you all prefer the metric system? :-) Thanks Bill Twieg PS: I don't know if wavy is really a word, but I hope you know what I mean! There are probably 8 or ten waves over the 11 inch height of the print. - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
