Canon PIXMA Pro9500 Printer – No More Borders! (Podcast 145)

About a month ago, I picked up a Canon PIXMA Pro9500 printer. In Japan this is called a Pixus Pro9500, not Pixma, but it’s basically the same printer. In Episode 144 of this Podcast, I talked about what I like, and what I dislike about this printer. In this episode,...

    Hi Martin
    Many thanks for this work around. My printer was giving me hell by not printing to the size I wanted – the border problem!!!! I will certainly try this along with all the other information you give. (Wonderful what information you can get from the Web)

    Best wishes

    Mike

    Dear Martin, I could kiss you right now!
    Thank you so much, for solving a major problem for me, that I have been struggling with (on and off) for over a year.

    I have a Canon Pixma 6250, with a similar large margin restriction.
    A year ago, I bought some lovely Canson Infinity paper, to make high-quality prints of my artwork, but simply couldn’t get the colors right, and the margin would cut off some of the image. I have been so frustrated over this, so many times. The paper being quite expensive, and ordered online from far away, I was afraid to make too many tests and waste the sheets.
    Your “Matte Photo Paper” + Perceptual intent solution worked wonderfully for me.

    If there’s anyone else out there with a similar printer, please allow me to share the specifications:
    – Printer properties – defined “Fine Art Photo Rag” icc profile
    – Printer Settings – defined “Matte Photo Paper” + High Resolution + Rear tray
    – Photoshop Print Settings – defined “Photoshop Manages Colors” + Perceptual intent.
    (Print preview looked horrible, but the prints themselves are lovely).

    Since reading your post 2 hours ago, I’ve already made several successful prints, on Canson Infinity Photo Rag 210g. as well as textured Aquarelle Rag 210g.

    Canon should pay you for this post, for saving their frustrated & baffled customers 🙂
    Many many thanks again!!!

      Happy printing!
