My go-to printer settings for the best quality!

Welcome back everyone! I'm frequently asked this question, but I've really noticed it has picked up more lately. Everyone wants to know what printer settings I use to get such crisp, clean prints. Right off the bat, I contribute 90% of the amazing quality to my amazing Canon Pixma printer (Read More About It Here). This printer offers so many different print settings, it lets me play around with the color settings, and best of all, it prints up to 13"x19". I mean, I love this printer so much, I've honestly been thinking of buying another one just so I can have 2 of them! Still...if you really want to see what settings I use, check out the photos below. **Please keep in mind that my printer, and the way it is compatible with glossy paper might not necessarily be the way your printer works.
