    We are currently using Magic indoor/outdoor poster paper on a Vutek 5330 Solvent printer. We use Colorburst to calibrate the material. When we print the linerazation chart the 100 percent CMYK colors look fade. When we printed at double density it puddles up, we tried to cut back the amout of ink it looks faded. Can it be the coating of the material? When we generate a printer profile the gamut looks small compared to our source profile Gracol 7.

    Are you using the 140 or the 212?

    You might want to try the 212 instead, the 140 might not hold those ink levels very well. What are you using it for?

    We are using for wild posting or wood barricades. The client give us specs for this material. Do you current use this material?

    I distribute the Magic Line and have for 12 years and just have always had better luck with the 212 gram. Would your client be up to checking out some different alternatives or are they set in their ways?
