Printing Epson Exhibition Fiber sheets on Epson Stylus 4900

I had a job where customer chose Epson Exhibition Fiber paper. I used both 17×22″ and 8.5×11″ sheets.

I do like the look of this paper. I have printed both B&W and color images, and the biggest issue I ran in were head strikes on paper. Sometimes the heads would catch the edge of paper and turn the print a little to skew the image. Not acceptable!

Head strikes with auto setting

Head strikes on paper with “auto” setting

Solution was to manually change the platen gap settings in advance media controls to “wide”. That completely eliminated the problem.

Hope that helps to you too!
