gimpprint-mediatypes - Gimp-Print media types
Epson and Lexmark (other than the 4076) inkjet printers
PCL (Hewlett-Packard and Lexmark 4076) inkjet printers
Gimp-Print supports many different media types, which are printer type specific. The option names are case sensitive. Two names are listed for each resolution; the first (short) name is the mediatype, and the second (long) name is descriptive. Not all media types are supported on all printers.

We have found that glossy photo papers not specifically designed for Epson printers generally perform poorly in Epson printers. The ink tends to pool on the paper, causing muddy shadows and possibly leaving ink on the printer rollers. Use of the highest quality printing modes (1440x720 highest quality and 2880x720 unidirectional) produces the best result on such papers, probably because printing is slower and there is more time for the ink to dry.
