Does anyone have a solution to sticky picture? I use mainly HP printers and the black ink never seems to dry. Lay them out for days but when placed in my portfolio the black ink sticks to the sleeves. Can anyone help me with this?

Freekin' HP! They used to be the best.

I gave away my last HP inkjet a while back and I haven't kept up with there product line but...

It sounds like you have a compatibility problem between your ink and paper. Are you using archival inks? If so, you have to use paper designed for them... slow drying ink is a good indicator of pigment base inks on paper designed for dye base inks.

Make sure your paper and ink are made for each other... if that's not the problem, you could have contaminated ink.

I used to love HP printers, especially their lasers... I'm an Epson/Canon convert now... I still don't used their inks and paper though.

Good luck,
Chip

I believe this is a documented problem using the HP Premium Photo Gloss swellable papers. You can try spraying the prints with Krylon Premier Art Print Shield or change papers to a Satin or Soft Gloss instead which don't seem to have the problem.

Regards,

John

There could be a few variables involved there, including the humidity factor, but more than likely it's the paper. I've been trying different papers with my HP and so far Epson Semi-gloss seems to be doing fine. I'm still early in the trying stage though, so we'll see.

I had that problem as well with kodak papers and hp papers. The best paper to use for your hp would be Ilford inkjet photo paper. they come in 4 different finishes and they dry in a matter of minutes and color saturation is excellent. also paper wieght is like you would get at a pro lab. you can find at most camera stores. I have used it event shoots and was able to give the clients there pictures minutes after the shoot.

I have been using mostly HP and Kodak paper. Will give the ilford a try although I probably cant get it here. I am presently living in Mexico but am headed to the states next month.
Thanks for your input!

Thanks for your input! I do live in an area of high humidity. My front door is 80 feet from the Caribbean. Will try a couple of differant papers and see what happens.
Thanks!

Thanks for the info. I live in Mexico so I doubt I can get it locally. Dont think they would let me fly with it either. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] I am driving to the states in june. Maybe I can get some then.
Thanks!
