Ink is printed onto paper unevenly, which creates a striped banding effect.
Why does print banding occur?
Print banding may be caused by clogged printhead nozzles.
Quick Fix: Run nozzle checks or test draws to printing and clean printheads to ensure print head nozzles are firing correctly.
Print banding can be caused by printer stepping issues, meaning the transfer paper is advancing too fast for the print heads to overlap during printing. Consequently, uneven amounts of ink are printed to the transfer paper.
Quick Fix: Ensure advancement of paper is adjusted correctly.
