I asked this as part of another thread but since there were zero replies so I thought I'd give it another shot. I'm printing a series in black and white on hahnemuhle fine art rag and the best results are from using matte black ink. I assume this paper is supposed to be used with gloss/photo black. Now is there any particular problems with using matte black on papers meant to be used with gloss/photo ink such as faster fading, or whatever else? sorry if this sounds like a dumb question.
BTW the printer is a Canon ipf5000 if that makes any difference.
First, I use Epson 4800 printers with their K3 inks.
It is my understanding that if you use matte black ink (MK) on glossy (RC) papers, the matte black ink will rub off. Therefore, on RC papers, use photo black (PK); on all other papers and canvas, use MK.
