If your printer is a newer one and has two different black inks (photo & normal), try printing with the highest quality and then the draft or greyscale and try each one to see which one does or doesn't smear. The difference between the two inks is that one is dye based and the other is pigment, so one will more than likely smear whereas the other won't. I have a Canon MP560 printer that I use off brand inks with and none of my inks smear with alcohol based ink markers. Another thing you can try is to heat set your ink with a heat tool or go over it with a warm iron.
