View Full Version : Printing problems with mini albums
07-15-2006, 09:26 AM
I am trying to print a mini album that I've done as a gift and the quality of the prints is just horrible. I have an Epson Stylus R320, I think is what it says on there, and I am using Epson photo paper. I use HP Creative Scrapbook Assistant software. It's got to look better than what I'm getting. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.:confused:

Gosh, it is hard to say what's wrong without seeing the photos. Have you checked the resolution of the images to see if it is enough for a good print? Did you select the best quality printing mode? Maybe check to see the ink tanks are not clogged, do a head clean of the printer and a print alignment. Maybe others can offer some suggestions that would be more helpful. It's a pain when things don't go right! :)

Thanks for your suggestions. I'll try the head cleaner thing. And I'm pretty sure I'm choosing best photo option. It is very aggravating since I worked so hard to do my son's birth album and I'm having such difficulty with the quality of the pages. I appreciate your response, though!

HP Creative Scrapbook Assistant software
Click Print page icon/change settings/properties/choose best printing option
File/Page setup/properties/choose best printing option.
More options -
What paper are you printing on? Most of us use paper = to our printers eg I have a HP printer and use HP glossy paper - there IS a big difference in printing quality when i use say kodak paper.
Do printer maintenance as per your printers manual.
Is it the photos or the actual mini album kits that are not printing right? If photos - check properties (right click photo) see what quality your photos are
They should print out like something at the shops - so perservere!!!
