Re: Archival Matte Problem



JIm,  If you can see banding from 18 inches away, it SURE isn't MICRO

You can barely see microbanding from 3 inches away!

If you have incredible fine white lines that you can barely see, that is
probably the fault of the printer, and you would need Epson to replace it.
