Re: Ultrafine on the Epson 3800



Diana,

I bet it's Ultrafine. So far I have found only Photo Warehouse willing to sell this thinner, cheaper, variety at larger than letter size.

Thanks for the assurance. I didn't want to jam the 3800. Ultrafine printed great on the 2200 after I lifted the "pizza wheels", at least until the venetian blind patterns occur. Have you found it necessary to do any modification on the 3800?

Sam,

I ordered some transparencies from a place Don Bryant had suggested to me. Now I'll have to go back and see what the name of it is-- may be Ultrafine-- but whatever it was, it worked GREAT! In fact, I liked it much better than Pictorico. Not only were they less expensive, but the transparencies themselves seemed to pick up a lot less (really, none at all that I could see) lint or dust-- a problem I consistently have with Pictorico. These transparencies worked so well, and only printed on my 3800. I don't have the package here in front of me, but I'll go look and see what it was I actually used. Maybe Don remembers. Anyway, I'm gonna be buying that from now on, instead of Pictorico.

Has anyone successfully printed Ultrafine or similar transparencies on the Epson 3800? I know the 3800 prints great on Pictorico.

Just wondering if I should abandon my 2200 for printing on the thinner Ultrafine - it's showing the dreaded venetian-blind banding.

Thanks.
