    I also use GCVP instead of Generic and comes out great.

    maybe a dumb question, but did you touch the print stuff before loading it at all? Dunno if you've been printing for 10 years or 1 week. Anyway don't touch it, I used to think "wtf is making those patterns?" and I realized it was palmprints :p

    I have used both GCVP and generic and they both work great, generic is a little better for some things I've found. Don't know that it's your profile. If you can find a profile where it doesn't happen, I guess use that. But if it's always happening, maybe something's gotten into your inks? Run a print test.

    finding that the different air release patterns on back of vinyl tend make prints look different,especially with oracal. the thinner the mil the more diversity.
