Text is jagged at the edges (not smooth)
Check the type of font chosen
Some software applications use custom fonts that have jagged edges when enlarged or
printed. If you are printing a bitmap image of text, it may have jagged edges when skewed,
enlarged or printed. By using TrueType
fonts you can ensure that the printer will print
smooth fonts. When selecting a font, look for the TrueType icon.
TrueType is a technology that can create fonts of any size from a basic font outline.
TrueType fonts are scalable, meaning they can be scaled for use on the computer screen
or the printer. This is the standard font-scaling technology in Windows.
Check the paper type
Paper that is heavily textured or does not accept ink well can cause graphics and text to
print poorly. See

software application manual or call the software manufacturer to get more specific help for
