Specs: 21 inch mac
Canon pixma pro 100
Printing glossy card stock from Red River paper. Using correct profiles. Fresh ink cartridges did not fix the problem
This is a new problem. Have cleaned the print heads. They appear to be aligned.
The streaks are on each end and at the fold point of the card stock.

✔ Best Answer
Card may be too thick for the printer. Otherwise, open printer driver, go to "Maintenance" and activate "Bottom Plate Cleaning".

Thanks so much for help. Did a bottom cleaning and nozzle cleaning. Have had no problem with that card stock in the past. Thinking maybe wrong profile. Have calipers and will check thickness against the other cardstock I use.
