"Yes, we did the head soak over the weekend. Going to try the print calibration now. We're using existing files in the RIP that we print frequently, so all the profile, media and other settings are all set. We cleaned the encoder strip not too…"

"EDIT:  Some colors are still off.  Like a turquoise we regularly print looks more olive green.  Will that keep happening until all those light cyan nozzles are firing properly?"
