Arrow Ink Smearing

Haldo good fellows, I was wondering is there was something on the market that can help stop or prevent inkjet prints from smearing (especially on glossy paper).

Don't touch them for a good while ;P Or if you mean from the printer(like the heads dragging or something) Make sure you have it set for Glossy paper...

Sometimes this is caused by paperjams, or torn off parts of paper stock. Or it could be just a bad drum. Not knowing what printer it is makes it kind of hard to help. so check this place out:
