Home Forums Am I a Fauxtog? Printing? (Rant and questions) Reply To: Printing? (Rant and questions)


What little I do print, it’s for personal use. I have a binder of close to 200 8 x 10s, most of which I’ve printed on an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 with Epson’s Premium Glossy photo paper. I’ve learned through experience that’s what’s on screen prints a little darker than what I’d like the actual colours to be, so I intentionally adjust the exposure by +2/3 stop or so before printing. Then the printer gives me a darker version of that lighter image that is pretty close to how it should be in the first place. It’s not perfect, but it works for me.

If I get to the point where I have actual clients, I’ll look more into outsourcing my print jobs, but until then I’m content with how I do things now.
