hi guys,
I am looking for an alternative matte paper that I can use on my Epson 3800.
I have used archival matte with good results so far, but members of the forum have warned me about fading whites and I am reluctant to sell prints that don't last.
apparently Epson has since renamed it enhanced matte.
so I came across the Epson velvet fine art paper in a sample pack.
now I have been using sample packs before and my experience is not a good one (Canson's profiles are useless)
so I thought before using up the samples with bad results I'd check if anybody's got a good profile for this printer/paper combo.there is none on the epson site.
any help is highly appreciated
cheers

the 3800 driver (at least v8.64) already has the profile for VFA.

sorry to differ, but mine has not.
in my LIB/colorsync/profiles/epsonstylus3800 folder there's only those and the green ones I profiled myself.
if you have it in there, could you mail that to me?
that would be great
my email is
<zobeleye@gmail.com>
thanks very much
cheers

That isn't where the driver installer drops the profiles.

They're here:
/Library/Printers/EPSON/InkjetPrinter2/ICCProfiles/Pro38.profiles/Contents/Resources
