Pro 100 and Pro Premium Matte Paper

Pro-100 printer, Windows 7, and Canon Photo Paper Pro Premium Matte paper. No matter how I try to set up this combination I get nowhere. First of all the printer tells me I must use the manual feed, OK I set that up. then it tells me I can't use Photo Paper Pro Matte in the 8.5 X11 (letter size) and gives me several sizes to use, one of which is 8.5X11, but it won't print. I had the same problem trying to print the 13X19 inch size. Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance

Re: Pro 100 and Pro Premium Matte Paper

Make sure that you're inserting the paper into the proper slot.  It's easy to get them mixed up.

 

Curiously, what Canon calls the "rear slot" is on the top surface, and the "manual feed" slot is one the rear panel.  If you're still experiencing problems contact Canon Support, 1-800-OK-CANON.

If you are using Premium Matte paper you need to select Fine Art paper option which will need to be printed from the manual feed.

Re: Pro 100 are the Canon Paper ICC profiles called and Print Studio Pro

New Canon Pixma Pro-100 user.

 

I have used pro Epson printers series thru photoshop so I am familiar with IC profiles.

 

But what are the Canon Paper ICC profiles called and none of my screens either in Photoshop or Lightroom match the Print Studio Pro screens referenced in numerous articles.

All I see is an installe icon. None of the options in any of the on-line manuals etc are visiable to me in the two programs I am using

If you are letting Lightroom manage printing the Canon profiles have the same name as the media type in the printer driver.

It is true that to get the BEST results you need to choose one of the Art Paper with Margin settings. However you can get output just using Other Glossy Paper, it might not be as pretty, though.

 

The big thing for me was I had opened the pack and used the top sheet and got horrible, blotchy results. What they dont't tell you is the top sheet is protective cardboard. So maybe discard that sheet or write something on it. Wish they had printed something on it at the factory.

If you are using a matte fine art paper select Canon Matte Photo Paper. If it is a thick paper go into the driver and select the avoid paper abrasion setting.

You are not alone cacaponjim. I did that too when I tried to make my first print.

The other thing to watch for is with paper like a Luster or SemiGloss it isn't really paper. It is a resin plastic. So if you put it in the printer wrong side out the ink just sits on the plastic surface and is wet and blotchy. 

If you aren't sure which is the print side wet a finger tip and touch a corner. The print side will be tacky.
