A Digital Printing Network
We use a fair amount of glitter print for one of our cheer customers and never ever use the media clamps.
I've found that the material is so heavy, it lays down nice and flat with just the pinch rollers
whoops, I clicked 'send reply' too quickly
If you have a design/layout that you really think you need to use the media clamps, much like we (sometimes) do with static cling.................I run a strip of Scotch transparent tape along the perimeter.
The media clamps don't kick and balk if they're running over the tape.
With cling, sometimes I double print or have a bigger image than I usually print with glitter.
Because the media has to go back & forth several times, over a larger expanse, I don't trust just having the rollers (can you tell I hardly ever bother to move my black rear stops?).
When I get those kind of projects, I pull out the roll of Scotch tape.
Works like a dream.
Thanks for the tip.
I have also clicked send reply before I should have. Fortunately, it was never something that made me want to crawl under a rock.
