Black ink printing with an offset gap

HP Recommended
HP Envy 5055
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've noticed that when I print my stickers, whenever there is any area, big or small, that the black ink ends up with an offset gap with no color, just white. It's hard to explain and I hope it makes sense.

If you run the alignment maintenance utility how do those prints look? Typically these printers produce alignment by using the black as the baseline and aligning the colors with the black. 

 

Do you see this behaviour regardless of media or only on the sticker media. If only sticker you may need to play around with paper type settings and quality settings to get perfect images.

I did that and then printed on printer paper with printer paper settings. I did a name 6 times, in red, orange, yellow, green, blue and black, all dark, to test if it would happen with another color, but just the black did that. I then run a "Clean cartridges" and the problem persists.
