Hi! @sherwin256, Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!
I understand you would like to know the difference between HP Zink 50SH AP2 Gls Adh Photo Paper and HP Sprocket Photo Paper-50 sticky-backed sheets/2 x 3 in.
Don't worry I'll try to help you out.
Did you make any changes to your printer?
Are you printing using HP ZINK® Sticky-Backed Photo Paper?
I have checked the records and found there is no difference between both the papers.
It's just a terminology used to market the photo papers.
Please, the few steps recommended below.
Use these recommendations to help improve print quality.
Use genuine HP ZINK® Sticky-Backed Photo Paper. ZINK® makes custom photo paper for a variety of printers, such as Polaroid, LG, and HP. HP recommends using HP ZINK® Sticky-Backed Photo Paper for best results. To purchase genuine HP ZINK® Sticky-Backed Photo Paper, go to the HP Sprocket homepage. You can also purchase genuine HP ZINK® Sticky-Backed Photo Paper from other retailers.
Clean the output rollers with the blue HP ZINK® Smartsheet from the same pack of photo paper currently in the printer. Load the blue HP ZINK® Smartsheet into the input tray with the barcode facing down and the photo paper with the print side
