David Fantle,

I can't find any documentation of which media type to select when printing on the Silverada canvas with the Epson 9890 printer. Any advice?

Hi Chris,

Thanks for catching that! He meant photo black. What I think he was trying to get at was that the "Canvas" media type defaults to "matte black" so you have to manually select the "photo black" from the ink dropdown menu.

Sorry for the confusion, but thank you for your attention to that!

Please let us know if you have any other questions. Have a great day!

Hi Justin,

Did you mean to say matte black for Silverada paper?  I'm pretty sure I was told the opposite because the matte takes weeks to dry on Silverada.

Hi David,

You will want to select the Canvas media type and make sure it's set to matte black (this is not the default setting for this media type, so be sure to change it manually.)

Additionally, you will want to go into the Paper Config menu and set the Ink Density to -10 or -15. I've seen this vary by image, but I'd start with -10.

I hope this helps!

Best,
