DyeSub ?

Hi all
been trying to print photo images of people on to mugs getting very grainy appearance on flesh. Up to now only printed vector etc. Also noticed some colours on vector graphics are grainy. Example is Khaki colour line shows up with grains of a darker colourmixes in but fairlyvisible. Skin tones are grainy to the point that you would think the dpi was out. System is XP, Corel Draw or Photoshop 7, Epson C80 and Artainium UV inks. Have tried scanned image, digital camera image all seem to be the same. Profiles and software etc all set as should be, do these inks have a life expectancy these inks are now over a year + old.
Any help please

Which paper are you using? some of the high transfer papers leave a rather grainy appearance on hard substrates.

I always use the Epson photo quality paper for mugs.

I am using texiprint 95 from the states, have tried plain paper, photo paper and paper from listawood, inks don't seem to dry. On the Texiprint 95 the paper is coated with a form of dry powder to absorb ink, dries totally instant out of printer.
