Default Epson Stylus Photo 820 ??

I just purchased my Epson Stylus Photo 820 printer and am having problems with the ink remaining sticky on all glossy paper I've utilized, including Epsons.

Any help in eliminating this problem or an explanation as to why it is happening, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Cat

Is it always sticky or is it only sticky for a few minutes after print. I've noticed this on my epson that it can be a little sticky for up to several minutes after print. I think it has more to do with current atmospheric conditions than anything else. Things like high humidity can keep the ink from drying exceptionally quick like its supposed to. I reccomend using a little better paper like the epson semiglossy or the epson premium luster papers. These are better papers and they do cost a little bit more but the results are spectacular.

I find the best place to purchase these supplies is from http://www.buy.com

I have a picture that was printed 3 days ago on Premium Glossy Paper and the lighter shades on the print are dry, but the darker shades are still sticky.

Thanks for your reply!
