Hello all - first post on the forum, but after lurking for quite a while I figured I'd finally say hi ... and ask the experts and collective expertise in the forum to help me with a puzzler.
I recently picked up an Xrite i1Pro 2, and to test it out I've been re-calibrating printers and paper. Generally, this has gone quite well, and across a reasonably wide range of media on three printers (iPF8100 and 8300, and my old battleaxe Canon Pro9500), I'm getting solid color fidelity with very low fuss.
As I have been working through this, I had a couple of papers where I only had boxes of sheets handy, and started to work these through each of the three printers as well. This is where the puzzler happened. I calibrated several roll papers between the 8100 and 8300, and they matched fine. However, when I've calibrated sheet paper, I can get the 8300 and 9500 to match spot on - but the 8100 is consistently coming out visibly mis-calibrated. I've re-profiled and tried a couple different papers, and I'm consistently getting the same mis-calibrated result.
I've tried to identify printer, printer driver, i1 Profiler, or other settings that would cause this, but as far as I can tell the profiling workflow is identical, and the printer/driver settings are identical between roll and sheet.
Any thoughts on where to look to start diagnosing this? Appreciate any wisdom anyone might have.
