Master Class Meets R/Evolution

When it come to fine art printing R. Mac Holbert along with Graham Nash started it all. If it was not for them fine art inkjet printing would not be what is today. Simply put Nash Editions is THE name in fine art printing and R. Mac Holbert is the talent behind that name.

And John Paul Caponigro? John Paul’s name is synonymous with fine art photography and the finest fine art prints possible.

Put these two talents together in one room sharing the combined wealth of there knowledge is a level of unimaginable creative amperage. The only thing better to being there is is to watch that meeting of minds recorded on a DVD.

Ink Drips or Smears


From John Paul Caponigro’s Blog

My Fine Art Digital Printing DVD offers many simple solutions to common problems. Here’s one …

inksmears

Problem
I’m getting spots or streaks of ink on my print(s).

Solution
Clean the print heads, the rollers, and the inside of the printer.

Sometimes excess ink accumulates from previous printing sessions and gets smeared on the next print. This usually only happens when previous print errors have printed off the paper causing problems for the next print, even if it’s printed correctly.

Then reduce the ink limit with the Advanced Media Control Color Density slider.

ColorDensityDryTime

This happens most frequently with third party papers, where the ink limit needs to be adjusted from another manufacturers defaults. Start with the nearest paper type for the Media Setting and then use Advanced Media Control to reduce the Color Density or increase the Drying Time or both.

Maintenance Tank Is Full

From John Paul caponigro’s Blog

maintenancetank

Problem
My printer won’t print because the maintenance tank is full.

Solution
Replace the maintenance tank.

Maintenance tanks catch excess ink during printing. Always have an extra maintenance tank on hand. It takes a lot of printing to fill up a maintenance tank, but when it’s full the printer won’t print. If you don’t have one on hand you’ll have to go get one or wait for delivery. If you do have one on hand you can simply replace it and keep printing.
