Roland VP540i Print & Cut Machine

Post by Wallchimp123 » Sun Jan 14, 2018 5:05 pm

When printing full colour artwork onto media, should you print the design and then contour cut after the inks have cured or is it ok to print and cut all in one process? What are you guys mostly doing to get the best results?

Also, what temperature are you setting the print heat and dryer heat on?

Many thanks for your help.

Rule of thumb is 35C print, 40C dryer.

You can print&cut in one go if your media withstands it and doesn't curl up. Most quality media is ok in that regard.

You may leave it dry for a minute or three if you don't feel too confident.
