The Quality of Printing
Several people complain that they buy a printer to get high-quality documents, but it still needs to be as expected. But do you know this? A large number of factors impact print quality. 

The issue relates to printer hardware or software and can also be due to faulty printer ink or toner cartridges. Color contrasts, printer resolution, and high printing are the biggest culprits for inferior print quality. So, let’s know some tips to improve print quality, whether you have a laser printer or inkjet. These solutions will help you print premium-quality text and high-quality images.

Method#1 Adjust Printer Settings

  • If you need high-quality images, set the printer speed settings to the maximum quality level. The setting is in the printer properties; check the printer speed and adjust accordingly.
  • Higher speed reduces saturation, and your image's print can be bent. Reducing the speed to a minimum level can print documents in faded or washed-out patterns. Therefore, optimum adjustment is essential for good-quality printouts.
  • Always use maximum resolution patterns from software and printers, especially when taking out image printouts. This could be the same as what was set by the manufacturer. You can also change this setting from the control panel or device.
  • Set the highest dpi setting; it can be 72dpi to 2400dpi, depending on your printer model. You can see the immediate change in the current printed documents.

Method#2 Some Other Tips to Make Better Print Quality

  • Always switch off the device when not in use. Otherwise, dust and debris will accumulate on the print head, directly affecting your printing quality.
  • Always use paper and other consumables recommended by the manufacturer. Sometimes, the specific paper may not fit your printer or printing purpose needs, resulting in poor-quality printing results.
  • Due to regular printing, ink clogs the printhead. Therefore, the printer starts printing low-quality results. To solve this issue, it will be better to clean your printer manually once every two weeks or based on usage. You can also use the automatic printhead cleaning feature. This will consume a bit of ink, but your printer will start printing good-quality results.
  • There is another automated printhead alignment feature in laser and inkjet printers. It is accessed through the control panel. Performing this function once a month will help improve print quality.
  • Every working device needs maintenance. The same goes for the printer. If you can clean the clogged printhead and blocked nozzles, you do not need to compromise on inferior print quality.
  • Always use a high-quality printer cartridge to print photos and graphics files. Using compatible or other alternatives can adversely affect printing or even damage the printer.
  • Always create and follow a maintenance schedule strictly. This will protect the cartridge and printhead from dust and other particles.
  • If you are not a frequent printer user, some components, like heads, drums, rollers, paper dishes, etc., will clog and settle into dust. Even if you have more than one printer in the house, do not ignore other’s care and maintenance. Keep all printers in working condition; otherwise, sell the extras and buy one multifunctional printer only to get the best quality results.
  • Always check whether the printer has updated drivers. Older cartridges are also culprits of inferior print quality. So, update them regularly, either from a professional or directly from the manufacturer’s website.
  • The printer’s RAM has an impact on print quality. If printer RAM reaches its maximum capacity, it will deliver cheap quality results.
The printer's role is to deliver the best quality printing results. But if its performance declines, following the above tips will help solve the printer problem quickly.
