I got Fujifilm papers FREE ater Mail In Rebates from Staples. It prints horrible with Canon PIXMA ip5000 photo printer. I have tried almost all the options but no change.
Has anyone else faced this problem and any suggesstion?
Thanks to everyone for their time and experiment.

hey dude,

I live in the .uk, got myself a pixma 4000 .. Here I have



Fujifilm Premium Photo Paper (Glossy) 190 gr/m2. It prints wel on my paper.

I am using printer settings like, paper: Photo Paper Glossy and high settings.

I have had BAD EXPERIENCES with Kodak Ultima Photo Paper and stuff.. the inkt would connect properly to the paper surface.

I've used the Canon Photo Paper plus with the IP 5000 and got great results. I've also printed on 8.5x11 Kodak Ultima Picture paper (high gloss) and also got good results--not as good as the Canon paper but not at all bad either.

My advice if you want to keep the printer, which I recommend doing, get Canon paper and don't waste your time with the Fuji paper.

The quality of FujiFilm paper really depends on where (in the World) you purchase it. While living in Japan I started using FujiFilm's "Advance Hi" gloss and silk papers. They are by far the best papers I've ever used. When I recently returned to the US I purchased a package of FujiFilm gloss paper and it has been the worst paper I've ever tried.

Canon papers work well, but if you're on a budget try the Costco/Kirkland brand.

I was surprised and this paper turned out the be BEST from the WASTE using them with Nikon Capture 4.0. This software is gem in printing pictures. I didn't changed any settings and this software produced excellent pictures with same ink and same papers.
