pixima 8720 printer, matte paper

Hello I recently got this printer so far I like it although when I print on matt paper the colours are a little washed out anything I can do about it other than adjusting my colours in the designs?

 

I haven't downloaded any drivers other or anything since setting it up

Are you using matte photo paper?

 

Are you selecting the correct media type in the driver?
