    Fading of Inkjet Papers

    And now let me describe the simple mode - plese create a very simple patch sheet - with 2 patches and print black onto one field and a medium gray onto the other field - 1x1" or 2 x 2 cm - id does not matter. Print one patch sheet with the ink or paper under test and a 2nd one as a reference -...

    Fading of Inkjet Papers

    I'm currently testing a mode to simplify my test mode for the fading of inks and papers, one approach is the use of the i1profiler software with additional convenience and options ( I paid for ) and as well a simpler way to use a scanner and the histogram function to which I'll come a little...

    Canon Pro-200 vs. Epson 106 ink fading performance

    Oh well, yes - sure about everybody has similar material in his cabinet, it can be the coating of inkjet papers which makes a difference - a mix of organic - binder etc - and anorganic materials - and not so much the base paper itself. Optical brighteners can yellow the coating, and there is a...

    Epson 106 vs. 114 ink fading performance

    I'm describing above in posting #12 how I do the luminance change tracking to compare the fading of inks, there is a detail which needs some attention when you do it a similar way. I'm using a scanner to scan the patch sheets every week or so, I'm using an Epson 3490 scanner, pretty old but...

    Canon Pro-200 vs. Epson 106 ink fading performance

    I found another clear definition for the longevity of the Chromalife 100+ inks used with the Pro-200 and other printers. I'm looking here to the CLI-521 multipack https://store.canon.co.uk/canon-cli-521-c-m-y-colour-ink-cartridge-multipack/2934B010/ it's here under the highlights 'Exceptional...

    @maximilian59 I'm using an age old (XP times) version of the Monaco Profiler suite which includes MonacoGamutWorks, this allows to display multiple profiles - .icm V.2 together with an image .tiff (uncompressed) to create quite illustrating images. And GamutWorks still runs under W10. There...

    Please be aware that Adobe RGB is a color space, assigned to the image, but this is not a printer profile, which printer profile are you using ? There are practically no green colors in this image, this is the image displayed by its color values in the Lab color space - there are no image...

    Do I understand you correctly that the main issue is a mismatch of the color balance between your monitor and the print output ? This can have several reasons - the monitor is not calibrated - the brightness of the monitor is too high compared to a print - the print output is not correct - and...

    So, yes. Macro from Germany.

    Is there a hidden risk with these cartridges which is posted in the MSDS ?

    Plesase describe your printing environment - computer/system, software to print, type of paper used, driver settings, with or w/o icm profile, type of image on which you don't see those color changes. How do you compare - against that image on your monitor ?

    Fading Performance of HP Dye Inks

    Since I have described my current method of number crunching here https://www.printerknowledge.com/threads/epson-106-vs-114-ink-fading-performance.14704/post-127963 I can give you a number how bad the HP plotter dye ink type 112 actually performs, it gives me a number of 61 in 2 weeks - vs...

    Epson 106 vs. 114 ink fading performance

    The '19' is petty much an arbitrary value for the luminance change over the mentioned time, I do this - I place a small patch sheet - with CMYK patches into the sun and I keep another one in the dark - the sun , the weather is doing the fading - the ozone, UV , nitrogen oxides and all that -...

    What are the last printer series with a resettable cartridge chip that can be refilled w/ bulk ink?

    There are Epson printers which accept 3rd party cartridges with ARC chips, there are Ecotank printers you can refill with any ink you consider suitable, there are printers on which you only can use a resetter for the original cartridges/chips and there are printers which accept or reject 3rd...

    Fading Performance of HP Dye Inks

    HP was using dye inks in multi-ink cartridges for photo printers 15 years ago - inks which performed great in fading tests by Wilhelm Research, and I'm trying to find out whether such inks are still in the current HP portfolio hidden somewhere. I tested the bottled GT52 inks which perform quite...

    Epson 106 vs. 114 ink fading performance

    Another week is gone - patches are exposed now since 4 weeks - and the trend continues - the Epson 114 inks of the ET-8550 are weaker than the 106 inks of the ET-7750 - differences are becoming visible, the 106 inks faded by a value of 19 in 4 weeks - the 114 inks did the same lightness change...

    Epson SureColor P600 - blurry, miss aligned prints.

    this is irritating me - what happened 2 weeks ago - a new driver installation on another computer ? Some malfunctcion with an error code ? Wiping off the timing strip is a standard measure in case of alignment problems , and it's always good to have a clean timing strip. And I'm puzzled as well...
