Hi and Welcome to Just Answer/Pearl, my name is ***** ***** will be assisting you with your issue today. Please rate my answer at the end of the session.

Have you set the printer driver to print on Glossy paper in the paper type?

If not go to print in your program you are using.

From the print window, click on preferences OR it may say Properties instead

This will open your printer driver which controls ALL actions TO the printer.
Think of it as the master control panel.

Please advise

Thanks Mike
