I'm printing a short-run of labels at home on my Epson Inkjet.
I have a CMYK pdf I've exported from Illustrator. No rich blacks, no color conversion when creating the pdf, Appearance of Black: both options are set to "accurate".
I've opened the pdf in photoshop and looked at the Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow channels. Color only exists where I've told it to be (no help from CMY to create blacks).
I still get 4-color blacks when I print! How do I stop this? Is there a way?
If not, is there any way I can get more life out of my ink? Most of the print is black with some green letters, and I've already had to replace Cyan after less than 40 glossy pages, and Magenta is almost empty.
