OK with all this talk about Piezo, figure I'll jump in.  I just got my
Piezo kit on Thursday (thanks Mom).  I'm using an 1160.  I had a "Major
Clog from Hell," but fixed it.  My problem now is that my prints are all
quite sepia toned.  All of them, even the first ones, have been this
way.  I followed the procedures for flushing and cleaning very strictly.
The files are "grayscale" in Photoshop.  I have used every type of paper
in the sample pack without improvement.

The printer was used as a general purpose photo printer for the six
months prior to having Piezography installed.  Color was fine, and never
had a clog.

Any input on why I'm getting that sepia thing?  I would really prefer
neutral or "cold" prints.  Thanks!

Piezo is the most archival ink you can get.

How archival it ends up depends on the paper you put it on.  The 3000
take all of the available archival papers.

Hope this helps.
