Looks like media contamination, dust or bits of fluff etc settling on the film before/during print. Where is the printer located? Do you leave the film uncovered on the back of the printer when not in use?

Good day,

Thank you for getting back to me,
They stand upright when not in use, as a rule, I don't print on the first bit to print have that as an off-cut for white cut outs, I try to keep the machine as clean as possible, It's in its own room next to the workshop. But somehow it looks like tiny ink blobs. (ECO-SOL MAX)
Static might be the problem, should I get a humidifier?

Kind Regards

Ink blobs gather around bits of dust/absorb and pull the ink surrounding.
If static then you can get anti-static bars which may help.

I did clean it again, and still. I tried another material, I tried rolling off some vinyl and start printing but still, so it could be te static, the season is changing so it getting drier.
