    "All my portfolios are printed on Entrada. It's necessary that each print stands alone as a piece of art, and it's because of Entrada's weight and feel that my portfolio stands out from the rest."

Which Entrada profile should I select?

There seems to be two profiles offered.

January 23, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMoab Paper

We offer two different Entrada Bright and Entrada Natural profiles for most Epson printers to streamline the paper loading and printing process. Either profile works for any weight of Entrada (190, 290, 300 or Entradalopes)- which one you use depends on how you prefer to load paper in the printer.

For sheets smaller than 8.5x11, you must use the sheet feeder, not the fine art manual feed. When using the sheet feeder, select the profile using Ultra Premium Presentation Paper Matte as the media type. Using the sheet feeder also allows you to load more than one sheet at a time, though it may be unreliable feeding a stack of 300gsm sheets.

For Entrada 300 sheets larger than 8.5x11, we recommend using the fine art/manual feed paper path, as it is optimized for thicker paper, and should be more reliable than the sheet feeder. In this case, select the profile using a fine art media setting (watercolor radiant white, ultrasmooth fine art, or velvet fine art- the recommendation will vary by printer). By selecting a fine art media in the print settings, it sets the appropriate head height and print speed for thicker sheets.

If you are using roll paper, we always recommend selecting the fine art media setting and associated profile.

The Fine Art media settings are grayed out and unavailable in Print Settings, what do I do?

The workflow to unlock the fine art media settings depends on which model of Epson printer you own.

Epson 3800, 3880

In Print Settings, select your paper size, and in the sub-menu for each size select the appropriate ‘Manual-Rear’ option, whether bordered or borderless.

Epson P400

In Print Settings, select ‘Printer Settings’ and from ‘Paper Source’ select ‘Rear Fine Art’.

Epson P600, P800

In Print Settings, select ‘Printer Settings’ and from ‘Paper Source’ select ‘Front Fine Art’.

Epson R2880

In Print Settings, select your paper size, and in the sub-menu for each size select the appropriate ‘Manual-Roll’ option, whether bordered or borderless. Manual-Roll is selected for both sheets and rolls.
