I currently have an Epson RX-580 with a modified continuous ink refill system. I'm not using Epson ink, but 3rd party refill bottles.
I use this printer to make physical label proofs so I can see what the label will look like on our product. I've experimented with matte/semi-gloss/glossy paper and I've had many mixed results.
If I were to be looking for a new printer (this one constantly requires me to clean the print heads every morning), what should I look for?
I'm really looking for crisp photo-quality prints. I guess another appropriate question would be which paper is best for prototyping labels (and which company produces the best paper for this use).
