    Hi all... I am having problems getting a true black to print on some material. It seems to be using all colors to produce black and making it sorta dk brown. Is there a way I can print only black.

    Here is my setup:

    Corel X3
    Versaworks 2.x
    Roland Sp-540v
    Eco-Sol Max inks

    Thanks in Advance.

    Matt

    yes, your printer will use all colors to make black. Check your color for rgb or cymk code and you will see it is not 100% pure black.
    So set your codes to 100% black and see what happens.

    Are you having this problem with raster or vector images?

    I checked my color and it is printing CMY at 0% and K at 100% and it is happening on Vector images.

    First, make sure you're using the right profiles for your image and media.
    From there, I do what shovelhead does. It gives a great black without oversaturating the material.

    where you select your profiles are there any advanced settings that let you print as PURE HUE ?

    If you have it try to mark the black box in oure hue then the printer will print all blacks as blacs

    Thanks Shovel.. That helped. It only seems to happen when I am printing on the cheaper calendered stuff.. hi performance always looks how it should.
