Does the type of paper I use really make a difference?
The ink in this printer works great on inexpensive uncoated paper for your everyday printing needs.
For high quality printouts and for long lasting images such as photos, it is important to use genuine Epson paper. Epson paper has been specifically developed to be compatible with the ink formula used in Epson printers.
Other brands of paper may not be compatible with the Epson dye-based inks. These papers may give you lower quality color images and may not have the longevity of Epson's long lasting media. Also, the ink may not dry properly, causing pages to stick together and smearing.
