Need info on setting Pro-100 printing on Artist Paper

Hello -

I am using Stathmore Artist Paper 3T with Canon Pro-100. What setting do I use for best results?


This paper is a Bristol Board with a smooth finish.

I first printed on it using Plain paper settting, best quality, but the result is a bit washed out. I am printing from Adobe Illustrator and the image is a vector.

Unfortunately I can't use Canon Photo Premium Matte 13" x 19", (which always gives me the best results), because the image needs to be 11" x 21.75". 


Should I use an Art Paper Setting? And if so which is best?


Please advise.

If Strathmore doesn't give recommendation for settings you have to experiment. Try Matte Photo Paper setting. If you choose a Fine Art setting the printer might force a 30mm margin.
