Try different primers. Some surfaces do not bind anything naturally. Suitable primer or pad printing only.

Tried degreasing it first? I use IPA to wipe most surfaces down before printing. You get release agents on plastic products which are not always removed.

Yes. I tried with degreasing and with two diffrent primer.
The next step was befor printing with cmyk, printing with gloss. Partial the print was ok. In area with smal designs the print wasn't ok

Thats why I changed my LEF-20 to primer, I never used the gloss, and the primer works very well on glass and acrylics.
