Poor Print Quality

HP Recommended

I just bought a HP Office Jet Pro 9025. I want to start a t-shirt business. I printed some picture in t-shirt transfer paper but the quality of the prints is not good. The colors are not vibrants and the picture looks old and with no vivid color. What can I do to improve the color issue? Please help me. Thanks

Welcome to the HP Community Forum.

 

This model is a nice printer, though it might not be the best tool for the job.

Your "transfer paper" is not a listed supported Media type.

 

You may have to test different settings for what works best, in other words.

 

Media types
Plain Paper, HP Photo Papers, HP Matte Brochure or Professional Paper, HP Matte Presentation Paper, HP Glossy Brochure or Professional Paper, Other Photo Inkjet Papers, Other Matte Inkjet Papers, Other Glossy Inkjet Papers, Thick Plain Paper, Light/Recycled Plain Paper, HP Tri-fold Brochure Paper, Glossy

 

What to do?

 

If the Transfer paper is light-weight, that is, it is thinner than regular plain paper,

Try selecting Media type "Light/Recycled Plain Paper"

 

What else?

 

If the Transfer paper is heavier than normal paper, consider a Media setting for heavy paper.

HP Brochure matte paper, for example, is 180 gsm - might be a suitable choice.

If the paper is heavier than normal paper but less weighty than the Brochure Paper, consider Presentation (typically 120 gsm).

 

 

 

You could try using the "Best" quality print setting, though I would guess this will just add too much ink and perhaps not actually make things "better".  If you try that, consider printing just a section of your overall design so you don't waste paper and ink.
