Printer Problems?

I've finally designed the rehearsal dinner invitations and when I print them out everything looks great except for that my silver color has printed a light purple color!!! I have plenty of ink in all my cartrides and eveerything else prints fine. What gives? I only have till tomorrow afternoon to get these bad boys printed, addressed, and mailed out!

Silver? What kind of printer/inks are you using?

Your black ink cartridge would be low if it can't print silver, it might be combining all the the 3 colors to try and make it.

I'm using an epson C60 and I'm really low on black ink. I have another cartride though. Even have one of those ghetto refill any ink cartride things but I haven't opened it up yet. Thanks for the tips.

Ok I was thinking silver, like metallic silver ... I've only seen a few home printers that use metallic inks/films, and they're way expensive.
