Photoshop text printing

I'm using Photoshop 5.5 with OS 8.6, a Mac 6500/250 and an Epson Color 800 printer.  Printing text from Illustrator or any other source on this printer looks normal.  Photoshop 5.5 text printing appears to be fuzzy or pixelated.

Whats the rez of your photoshop doc? What rez are you printing at? What font are you using? Are you rendering the font before printing or not?

Illustrator is a vector based application, sending postscript commands to the printer to execute the type at its highest resolution. Photoshop, on the other hand, is a bitmap program, dealing in pixels and the like - it sends absolute pixel information to the printer for your type versus mathematical commands, resulting in your fuzzy type.

Is this a situation where you could bring the image into illustrator then add the text?

Photoshop will print text just fine if the rez of the file is high enough.

Match the Rez of your Image to that of your printer using the image size tool.

Until I get the issue with Photoshop resolved, I've done exactly what postpress has recommended.

Create an image the correct size in cm/inches and set the resoloution to that of your printer. Then add your text/images to thid image and print, you should get clear results.

try this .....
i don't say it will 100% work but try it out.
you'll be having each layer for your texts.
break the text by going through--
layer - type - renderlayer.
and then print it.

Um, netbug's answer is very similar to the first suggestions weed offered, particularly the 'render layer' suggestion.
