I use a CISS (continuous ink supply system) with my Epson - ink and print quality are exactly the same as with Epson cartridges, it's just that prints are a fraction of a cost, so I can afford to experiment without having to remortgage....which is what I did with these acetates.
I planned to use the acetates for craft and design projects, but also PCB masking (which although a black and white print requires very opaque printing and sharp edges). Three or four prints were all I needed to get the hang of this and the end result has worked fine for me - prints for craft projects were perfect, and creating PCBs using photo etch worked no problem at all.
I use an Epson PX710, and found that the following helped :
1. The acetate instructions state that there's a 'rough' side and a 'smooth' side to the paper - this means that if you print on the rough side, you'll get a nice clean, solid print with sharp edges; however if you print on the smooth side you'll get a runny mess.
(If you don't know whether your printer uses the upwards facing side or downwards facing side of paper in the print tray, mark a piece of ordinary paper using a pen or pencil, place it in the paper tray and run a test print).
2. There's a paper strip along the leading edge of the acetate which allows the printer to grip the sheet and pull it through the paper feed mechanism, and which can then be peeled cleanly away after printing. The Epson struggled to 'catch' this (as it seems to with all non-standard papers) and so I simply used another piece of (normal) paper as a 'carrier'.
Using some small pieces of double sided sticky tape, you can tape a piece of plain paper to the smoother side of the acetate. For the PX710 I taped my plain paper 'carrier' to the smoothest side of the acetate, then loaded it into the paper tray with the rougher side of the acetate face down and plain paper facing up.
3. Epson has some 'standard' paper types listed in its printer control software - I found that "Epson Ultra Glossy Photo" and "Epson Matte" produced good results - they're heavy, coated papers that can take a lot of ink, so using one of these paper settings for acetate prints means you get nice dense colour.
4. The Epson printer control software I use has settings available for print quality and print speed. Depending upon the printer you have, these may or may not be available, but I found that highest quality, slowest speed prints delivered the best results - clean edges and nice dense colour.
I'l continue to play with settings and will post an update if I can improve print quality further.
So, the bottom line from my perspective is that these Q-Connect Universal Ink-Jet acetates are excellent provided your printer supports the use of ink-jet film, and from what Epson 'Helpline' staff (and a supervisor)tell me, most Epson printers - certainly those bought for home/office use - don't. If your printer does support the use of acetates, I'd by this product and recommend to others with confidence.
I've written this review because another reviewer with an Epson printer wrote an adverse review about these ink-jet acetates, when it seems that the problem may well have been with the Epson printer, as it is with mine, which is beyond the control of the manufacturer of the film. When I've used up my catridges, it will have to go, and I'll research alternative printers which are up to the task, which rules out Epson.
It is important to print on the correct side, and this is very clearly pointed out on the sheet inside the packet. The printable side has a slightly rough feel due to the coating which takes inks. It's very susceptible to water which lifts the ink straight off (my daughter and her friend discovered this in art class, and promptly used the effect to produce even more experimental art).
The acetate has a thin leading white paper strip for feeding in to the printer. The printable side is on the opposite side from the paper strip. This has fed well in to the printer so far - I've been following the instructions to use one sheet at a time. And make sure you give the film a chance to dry before it gets covered.
