Pixma G620 missing paper options Windows 10

I tried to print with various settings and when printing transparancys they all are faint, like 50% lighter.

All the paper options are mostly for photo. There use to be labels, transparancy, iron on, and other paper options. I have also tried adjusting with manual color settings, with every thing bumped up to 30, and no change.  Photos and plain paper print perfectly. Where is my label and transparancy options??? I am wasting paper and money experimenting, and it should be a simple option.  I could have saved money paying Kinkos to print my transparancy!

Sorry but I only have a limited option of papers to choose from with the printer. At one time with Windows 7, I had more. I have updated the drivers to the G620 and its firmware to the latest. There is only Photo options, and some Canon papers, none of which in the lists show any Canon transparency films, stickers, Iron Ons, and labels! Its very vague for the price of the printer, I could get two cheap printers with all the options I need. Whats up with that!

I figured it out on my own... Had to print pushing contrast and saturation to their limits.  It seems that Avery Matte Shipping Label sheets pull in inks deep into the label.  Maybe printing as standard paper in high setting may help. But I never bothered with anything other than photo papers.  Don't know if plain paper sucks more ink than Matte Photo paper, else I would have printed as if I were printing standard letter head.  Found out that Avery sheets that I seletect for use, were not up to par with others.  In fact I cannot recommend them to hold up under wear and tear of shipping. The lightest amount of moisture wipes out any print from its face. Also their coating scratches off easily. The only reason why I chose them, as for the sticky back side being the best, and that they were matte, with expected durability (being a shipping label).  Not many sticker or label sheets to choose from that have those to qualities, unfortunately. Who in their right mind would make shipping label sheets that cannot hold up under handling wear and tear. They should be at least moisture resistant.
