    Print issues in laser jet printers

    Greeting to all

    I have been having issues with the line weights when i print in a laser jet printer,but the same print from a inkjet is better and sharper.The layers which are screened in the ctb have this issue and print very lightly.How do i go about with this issue or should i need to have a separate ctb when printing in laser jet printer.

    Are you making use of the latest driver for your laser printer?

    Could it be the quality of the paper in the laser printer?

    Then adjust the percentage of screening or change the lineweight of the layer that the screening is on.

    Or not use the laser printer.

    Have you checked what type the drivers are for the respective printers?

    I have had a few problems in the past with a Laser printer not plotting correctly.

    The plotter I was trying to use was a Toshiba Laser printer using a .psl2 (postscript) driver as default.
    Postscript drivers are optimised for printing text documents, not graphics.

    When I changed it through Windows to use a .pcl6 driver the problem was cured.

    (I actually used a Hewlett Packard .pcl6 driver I already had loaded to use with our Designjet plotters, printed to the Tosh. laser with no problems).
    Im intelligent enough to know that I dont know everything; but I'll tell you all about it anyway.
