You have the camera, the great vacation pictures, a really good printer, but the photos are just not what you were hoping for. What can you do? At Cartridge World Bloomingdale we provide for all your printing needs and we would like to give you some things to remember when buying your printer photo paper. So read on and see what tips to remember when choosing the paper to make those vacation photos come alive.
The first thing to remember is that not all paper is equal when it comes to printing. In printing photographs you really do need to buy the photo quality paper, but that is just the first step. In buying the paper you also need to take into consideration the type of printer, ink jet or laser. If you buy photo paper for an inkjet, but you have a laser printer you run the risk of ruining the OPC drum inside your laser printer. The reason being laser printers print at a higher temperature, so by using the wrong paper you can actually melt the coating on the inkjet photo paper causing it to run off into your printer. In the long run you have cost yourself more money.
When buying photo paper for an inkjet be sure and look on the packaging for the list of printers the paper is compatible with, this can save you much grief. Ink jet printers use pigment based ink or dye based ink, they are not the same. Using the wrong paper can cause bizarre effects on your colors and smears and smudges that can end up affecting your printer as well as producing poor quality photos.
