Ink Blobs on Prints

I’ve been printing a lot on my 3880 lately, using the same paper type consistently. But suddenly little round blobs of ink (they look like they are all the same color) have begun to appear on my prints. Not on the margins, just randomly appearing in varying areas of each print I make. What could be causing this and how can I fix it?

Thanks!

This can happen with excess ink from the cleaning assembly (flushing box and wipe blade) is spread on the had during a cleaning.

The ink left on the print-head will get near a nozzle and then fire out onto the page as a dot.

I recommend cleaning your capping station, flushing box, and wiper blade.
