A Digital Printing Network
Im brand new to print and cut, I have a job (my First) which is a sticker kit for a Go-Kart, Its taken 1 week for me to designs all the separate graphics/sizes etc,, I have purchased 3M Motormark in white and clear But, before using those I have just printed it all out on normal sticker vinyl to test it first, heres what happened:
1, loaded designs in versaworks, set as a nested job, set it to do registration marks and set Print Only,, all good
2, hung it up to outgas for 24 hours all good
3, went to lay the clear vinyl over the top, - Disaster, air bubbles everywhere, tired to get as many out as I could but not working well at all
4, put it back in the to cut, opened versaworks where I did save the job But its now showing up as a totally different layout to how it printed, not sure why its now showing up different at all, anyway I let it go hoping it would still cut in the order it printed,, It didnt and cut accross all design in the wrong order
The whole thing is completely ruined, lucky it was not done on the correct materials as that would of been worse but still I need to have this job done yesterday (literally), so upset
How do I lay the clear down without all the drama and air bubbles and why didnt it cut in the correct order?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated :(
Oh like I said im Very new to this, only owned the machine (Roland BN20) for not quite 2 weeks and before this go kart job ive only made I small sticker, which did not have to have any laminate/clear vinyl on top
Thanks in advance
what window cant be resized? Sorry I dont understand
So I cant set the nested job in my software before transferring to versaworks?
Julie, I think Irv was responding to Carlo's question and it got posted in this thread by accident.
You certainly can 'nest' your files before bringing them into VW
I do it a lot...............a whole heck of a lot
It's a wonderful way to save media and not be wasteful.
ahhhh Ok LOL
Thanks for letting me know :)
i would just do a print and cut without laminating, the inks are supposed to be good for up to three years without laminating and if your customer has to get them reprinted every 8 weeks this should be well good enough. the only thing is graphics freshly printed are very hard to apply without lamination, I would suggest for you to let them dry after print and cut for as long as possible and cover them with application tape to apply them. This has worked for me on many a job.
