hey, i have this Cd cover thats all black and when i print it on my label it comes out dark gray and i really need it to be black! i tried all of the printing qualities (fast draft, normal, best) and they all seem to do the same thing. I also selected "glossy paper" because the CD label is glossy. can any1 help? i have a hp photosmart 7150 btw

I assume it's a 3 cartridge color printer. You can't get true black with that. The best is a muddy grey. A four cartridge (4th=black ink) color printer will print true black.

To get true color gamut they are up to 7 cartridge printers now. Black, the 3 usual light cyan, light magenta and a gray cartridge. Sheesh.

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
