A Digital Printing Network
For a while now we have had some issues with Quickprint. When we press the design there is always a small white edge around the design. We have put a bleed on the designs hoping that would help...hasn't. Is our pressure too much what the heck is going on with it? It makes it look pretty "cheap" on the garments. Not liking it at all. Any suggestions? Anyone else have this happen?
Check your pressure- I think your underside is pushing out - that has been my experience when I see a white rim equally around and I have a bleed. If it is on one side then you need to correct the print-cut adjustment.
pressure was my first thought too irv
Heather, I stopped using it for the exact same reason.
Bleed or no bleed, I can't find a way to eliminate that thin white border.
(Increasing pressure............for me at least.........makes no difference)
I love the ease of use, it's a great, fool-proof media.......and would start stocking it again in a heartbeat if that border issue could be resolved.
Really? I was increasing pressure. Never thought to reduce the pressure.
That's interesting, Butch. Too much pressure, huh?
Now I'm curious as heck.
I've got to go see if I have a scrap left over or an extra print in my stash.
....I'll let you know.
Maybe we're talking about 2 separate issues.
I've never experienced a halo.............it actually 'looks' like we're seeing the depth of the vinyl.
That's why I assumed I wasn't useing enough pressure and increased it.
I found some extra prints in the drawer.
When I turn the heat press on later this afternoon, I'm going to give your theory a try.
....hope you're right, Butch
guess halo was wrong term - white edges showing past the color when none should be there is what I'm talking about
Irv, I'm sure you have forgotten more than I'll ever learn about this end of the business. I've learned a great deal from you and Steve the short time I've been in this forum and appreciate the sharing of knowledge .
Holidays are something that sneek up on me to - may the shirt gods help on your quest for supplies.
