I’ve been in email parade with Epson about a recent issue after a very long and successful run printing mostly on Epson Hot Press Natural paper in all it’s sizes, but usually 17×22 or 13×19, with a single image centered on the paper inside a substantial border. My settings are familiar to me as is the printer, all of which having proven flawless until last week. I discovered what I’d call a rough edge along all sides of the image. A close up example jpeg is attached. This phenomenon does NOT occur in 8.5×11 paper of the same type nor with a test using standard copy paper which have sharp edges all around. My nozzle checks are perfect as is the roller cleaning process. The only thing I have not done as trash the driver (12.62) and re-install the printer. Epson has offered no useful advice as yet. I believe the fix is at an experienced persons command already….I hope. Also, yesterday I made a 17×22 print of a poster I designed for a co-op gallery I’m a member of which includes 15 images, each about 2 1/2 inches square. The print is fine to the extent that at that size, the “small” images don’t look flawed around the edges as a full print would, but on close inspection I see the various frayed edges. Your thoughts on this would be dearly appreciated. Ken

It appears after quite a few experiments, Epson’s last suggestion has made the difference, to turn off high-speed printing, something I’ve used for many years making large prints. THanks for looking in on this post!

Glad you got that worked out. I beleive there is also a thcik paper setting you can turn on that helps with thicker papers like you are using. I know there is one on the P900.
