Matt Finish Solvent Media

Post by chr15athome » Wed Nov 29, 2017 1:53 pm

Hi Guys

I have recently been trying samples of media to produce a glare-free finish after printing.
I use a Roland RE-640 eco-solvent machine.

Some of the printed samples I have been sent have a Matt finish but when I print the sample roll it has a slight sheen to the ink finish. Which then causes glare under some lighting conditions for darker prints.

Someone who I lost contact with a few years ago printed me a Canvas sample that had no glare, he said that it had to be printed in a certain way. If I had just asked then!!! At the time I didn't know this job was coming.:)

So I guess my questions are:
  • Which media should I buy to get a glare free finish?
    Can I print it differently to reduce glare?
Any advice or experience you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Chris

Try Ikonos MRT FX150 wall vinyl. It''s very matte and removable. Sticks nicely to painted walls.

Thanks mrtn sorry I should have added that it can't have adhesive on.
