I have finally gotten a solution to my problem with the 2200 and printing 13x19.

I have gotten superior quality prints in 13" x 19" on the watercolor matte paper, but it ripples. I have gotten several suggestions, including putting them in blotter paper and curling them over a roll of paper towel.

One of the graphics experts at work had another totally different suggestion: use the luster paper.

It is more expensive ($2.00 per sheet), but it really works. No ripple, from the time I take it out of the printer, to when it dries.

It is better quality paper, too.

It seems to me though, that there is a flaw in the ability to print the watercolor matte. Perhaps that is because I live in a place, where the relative humidity is usually 92% (state of Washington).
