I’ve been struggling with type 5 24" roll stock printing on 7880’s using k7 carbon and selenium inksets. When printing large pano landscapes that have large areas of solid tones, that I would call fussy backgrounds, dark solid smooth skies, etc. I find small imperfections that look like faint fingerprints and or faint abrasion marks. I believe these marks on on the paper surface before getting printed. These imperfections are not really visible before printing because they’re too faint. The paper is handled very carefully before feeding into printer. I know if I intentionally leave a fingerprint or a faint abrasion on the surface before printing that it can appear in these fussy type of backgrounds but I’m seeing this even with the roll still loaded in the printer and the surface is not being touched either with hands or any other surfaces. I can observe the paper feeding directly into roller entrance without any contact with any other surface. it’s almost like the paper has been handled before but it’s virtually impossible to detect this until the ink is applied. I can see these imperfections after paper exits and will still be visible even after the GLOP pass. Any suggestions on how to try to achieve a flawless print surface on the 1st print? Other types of image content will not easily exhibit these small imperfections but certain subjects are really problematic . At my price point, for the display market, I can’t afford to remake several or more times in order to deliver a flawless print. Is there some other baryta gloss paper that is far less surface sensitive? Some of the other paper’s that I’ve tried are not as perfect as Type 5 is with gloss differential and lack of bronzing. One example is HPRB seems to be a bit less sensitive but not nearly as good with gloss finish, even with additional GLOP load so I would deem that to be a lower standard than type 5. But I haven’t tried everything out there. Any suggestions as to an alternate or some procedure to overcome high sensitivity to surface imperfections with Type 5?
