Greetings all,

Janet, I'm not sure which ink set Sandy is using for Pictorico, but I
find advantage in using dye inks as opposed to pigment inks when
printing to Pictorico. I believe (based on past experience printing to
vellum through an emotionally unstable Epson 3000) you will find this
true for the Clearprint media, as well. That said, I'm not sure Epson
even makes a dye set for the 2200, but I'm sure somebody does. We're
running 2200's and 7600's, and do all of our digital negative printing
through a 7600 loaded with dye carts.

If you are having specific issues with your results, just post the
specifics back to the list.

I hope everyone is well and prospering.
