Inkjet film suggestions?

Postby PlayersBench » Wed Dec 26, 2012 2:57 pm

I'm shopping around for some inkjet films for my Epson 4000 Professional Edition.

Currently my film positives are fading after going through the vacuum exposure process. What can I do to alleviate this, other than going to a thermal film system?

I haven't always had this problem and unfortunately I'm not sure why and when this started. If I had to guess - it started when I tried using non-epson inks for cost purposes. Using those non-epson cartridges eventually clogged my heads and I had to get a complete printer cleaning. I'm back to using all Epson cartridges now but my films are fading after exposing.

Any tips would be appreciated.
Thanks!
