Suggested Media Settings for PermaJet Range

The media settings for PermaJet range shown below are suggested as being the most suitable for the PermaJet paper surface, taking into account the amount of ink being laid down by the printer. These settings, derived from our own internal testing criteria, may be subject to change without prior notice.

Media names may vary slightly from model to model-choose the closest matching name. Choosing different media settings to the ones below may alter the quality of your final printed image.

Are you using an existing PermaJet ICC profile? you will find the required media setting contained within the profile name as an abbreviation, the data in this table may no longer be relevant.

Alternatively you can Download the PDF here. Remember, if you’re using an existing PermaJet profile, the table won’t apply because the profile’s name will state the media setting as an acronym.

*Please note ICC profiles cannot be used with Digital Transfer Film as it is a clear based product. The recommended media settings should be used.

**When using the Canon desktop range of printers in conjunction with the media setting OFAP (Other Fine Art Papers) it is worth noting that this setting imposes a print margin restriction and will crop your physical print. It is therefore important to be aware that when printing a target/ patch chart foracustom profile to be created, the MPP (Matt Photo Paper) media can be selected to overcome this issue when using all PermaJet fine art papers. However, for best results you should print the test patch as an A4 format (without scaling) on an A3 sheet using the suggested media OFAP setting.
