To ensure proper fatex ink drying,use the following recommend�tions: Media_Presets HP media presets contain all the needed seYtings to prir7t an a specific media. Dowrtload and use media presets from the following page:www.hp.com/go/mediasoiutionslocator. Environmental Conclitions:HP media presets heve been specially designed and tested for each printer-media com6ination. Recammended environmenkal conditions:+20�C ta+25°C,Humidity 40%-60%RM Important notice for HP Thie amount of ink prir�ted is the mair�key for proper ov�rlominate adhesion.Select a media preset using 831/871 and HP 881/$91 1p0%or less ink density.

For intmtdiately post-processing of latex printed graphics follow strictly th�recommendations given abovE (Section Latex inks nre different)ond test the proper drying with the followinc�performance tests: Visual Test:Check the image immediately after printing.The sample should not be wet or sticky to the touch, or have an'oify'feel when it emer�es from the printer. Rub6ing Te:t Aftcr the visual inspeciion,wipe the printed sample with a whitc wet paper towel.Fully-dried ink sliould resist wiping and sho�tid not show any stains on the white cloth.If the ink is e�sily removed by wet r�ibbing,then it is not dricd. Stacking Test:In some cases,the top surface will appear dry after printing 6ut within a few minutes ink may mic�rate to the surface feaving an oily aspect.To ensure proper dryiny,stack at least 12 sheets liner to printed side and let sit for one hour. After 1 hour,remove the stack and check for"oily"stains,wet surfaces or glossiness changes on hlgh ink laydown areas on each sllcet.If any of thcse occur,then th�ink is not properfy dried. If a san�ple is not properly drled on the printer,reprint the image ui�der a condition that allows complete drying.Cornrr�on improvernent steps are: Increasing the drying temp�rature in 5 degree steps.
