Re: Semi rigid material?

It’s for caution signs on external racking, they had laminated paper signs previously from someone else but they got wet so they’re looking for something waterproof but very cheap.

Re: Semi rigid material?

Thanks, what rigid material do you recommend, it needs to be about 1mm thick but I don't want it to be brittle?

Semi rigid material?

I am looking to do some A4 semi rigid outdoor signs on my BN-20, they need to be about 1mm thick. What would be the cheapest way to do this? Would I print onto self adhesive vinyl and mount onto a semi rigid sheet or would I be better to print onto a semi rigid material and can anyone recommend mate...

Re: Sticker material

I'm using a BN-20 so the profiles are just generic vinyl, will any of the other profiles for other machines work with the BN-20?

Re: Sticker material

Thanks Kai, I did lots of tests with Metamark MD-P leaving it to cure for well over 48 hours before cutting and I was still getting edge curl. The profile I use is generic vinyl which is what metamark specify but looking at the guidelines it says "Avoid cutting flush into the print if the artwork al...

Re: Sticker material

Forgot to add that the reason I use Metamark MD5 is that I don't get the problem of edge curling when cut.

Sticker material

Hi All, Can anyone tell me what material they use for print & cut stickers. I have been using Metamark MD5 for most things as I haven't got the finances to have multiple materials in stock but it is too thin and hard to handle for stickers and a few of my customers have complained that they are diff...

Re: corporate gifts etc.

Sorry, I'm near Winchester. I'm so used to doing things online that location isn't usually an issue. :oops:

corporate gifts etc.

Can anyone recommend a company that can print/supply corporate type gifts (pens, pencils, cups etc.), I will be reselling so will need trade prices if possible? I need someone that I can rely on but a google search comes up with millions of companies so it's a bit of a mine field.

Re: Destructible or void material for solvent print

I don't seem to be having any luck with printing on the void material, I can't seem to get the ink to adhere, it takes forever to dry and even then it rubs off easily. The only way I can think of doing it is to laminate the silver void material with clear vinyl and then print onto the clear vinyl, h...
