I am getting better results with all color management completely off, than when I use the icc profile for this specific paper. When used, the icc profile creates awful results... color blocking up, banding, weird contrast & exposure. I spent hours on the phone with Epson, and we definitely ruled out the printer as the issue.

What to do now?

When printing with the Entrada profile, are you selecting 'Ultra Premium Presentation Paper Matte' as the media type in Print Settings? I would also recommend starting with 'Relative Colormetric' as the rendering intent, and check the box for black point compensation.

To double-check the profile settings, you can perform a soft proof in either Photoshop or Lightroom. Use the same settings (profile, rendering intent, and black point compensation) and see if there are any color shifts in the image on-screen.

Thank you, i will further look into it.

Thank you.
I already use above settings. Sometimes prints look good, sometimes they are awful.

I use the Cold Press Natural media setting on an Epson 9890. I’ve run a lot of rolls using the Moab profile with this media setting and always get consistent results. That said, I’m running the 190 weight natural, on a different printer. The inconsistency you're seeing is probaly either workflow, system software, or possibly the profile for your specific printer. What are your system details? What software are you printing from? Do you have a calibration print that you can run to establish a baseline?

I use above (post) print settings. When I let printer handle color, & turn all color management off, the test print looks good.

I have been using for two years I have faced the same problem. After ready, this post colour management is working well.
