Pixma Pro 200 Sticker Printing Issue

BerfleMurfle
Apprentice

I'm having trouble with printing stickers on glossy sticker paper. The paper is Milocoast glossy adhesive paper and the results are very dull colors and smudged lines. I've tried various paper-type options, but this is wasting materials and causing a lot of frustration. With that, I've cleaned the printer head and checked the nozzles and they're working properly.

If anyone has any advice that would be awesome!

The Pro-200 is a dye ink printer; think colored water.

Photo papers (what the printer is designed for) have an absorbent finish. The ink soaks into the surface layer.

The material you are trying to print on is not absorbent, so the ink just sits on the surface. It is not a suitable material for that printer.
