At PMA we were printing on Linen and Felt stock. During setup, we loaded all of our files on the FreeFlow Print Server and began testing them. For the textured stocks, we assigned custom paper profiles which I talked about in my previous post “Printing on Textured Stock“.
This time, I wasn’t seeing a difference at first. We increased the settings to as high as they could go and still no change. We lowered the value from 100 to 75, and a positive change in image quality was obvious. There was no mottling whatsoever.
The need to increase or decrease the values in the custom paper profile setting is dependant upon the stock you are running, the application, etc. So if you are making these adjustments, play with the numbers until you get the result you desire because it will be different from job to job.
If you own a Xerox 700, the steps below explain how to navigate to the custom profile settings within the Xerox 700 User Interface.
- After logging in as System Administrator, select the button (on the right) on the UI for “Machine Status”
- Select the “Tools” tab. Within this tab you will see three columns. The left column you want to select “System Settings”. For the middle column [Group] select “Common Service Settings”. For the right column [Features] select “Paper Tray Settings”.
- Within the new window, select “Custom Paper Settings” on the left. Then select 1 of the 10 profile slots available and “Change Settings” located in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
- Select “Adjust Image Transfer”. The default setting for this is probably ‘Auto’ so you will want to select ‘Manual’ and then bump the numbers
- for both sides of the paper.
