Printing on the PRO 1 on CANON Matte Paper using PK and MK
Well long story short, printing on Matte Media on the pro-1 with PK sucks!!!!! But that is what happens when you choose regular "Matte Paper" as the paper choice.
The printer uses Photo Black rather than the expected Matte Black.
But if you instead choose the "Fine ART" Paper choice, it then allows the printer to use MK ink and that makes a huge improvement.
You will have to feed your media from the rear Manual Feed and accept a wide imposed Border!
Using the 1/2 Photo Paper Premium Matte profile helps a lot in producing the deepest blacks and best POP!!
I will be experimenting further in the next few weeks with other matte papers.
