Try a different paper!! Jerry The 1280 works beautifully with all epson papers, and most fine art papers with third party inks! > I recently purchased an Epson 1280. I often do short-run projects for > customers and select from a wide variety of papers, depending upon the > desired outcome. My first attempts to reproduce the image that I > created in Photoshop have been dismal.
