I am printing on Canson Platine Fibre Rag on an Epson 4900 printer. I did a print today and got a pattern of head strikes in the middle of the print. The Canson web site says to use a paper setting of Premium Luster Photo Paper 260, however, it seems to me that Epson Premium Luster Photo Paper is thinner than the Platine Fibre Rag. Has anyone had this problem and come up with a setting that prevents the head strike?
The Epson Lustre is 0.3 mm and I am sure that Canson would have used Epson Exhibition Fiber (Trad Photo in Europe) as the media setting, had it been available then.
Canson Platine is a little under 0.4 mm. So I would start with the Lustre setting, change the Paper Thickness to 4, and the Platen Gap to Wide, then save it as a custom setting.
