Your prints are only as good as the paper they are printed on. Many printers have the option to select Paper or Media type. In my case, I selected Premium Glossy Photo Paper, which is as close to a match for the name listed on my paper's packaging (in this case it was Office Depot's High Gloss Photo Paper).
The printer reacts differently depending on the choice you make. If your prints are over-saturated and blotchy, but look great on the screen ... check to see that you have made the proper paper selection in your print dialog.
