"I just gave this a go and compared the Return to Origin method with the Overprint. It appears that the Overprint comes out darker and uses a little more ink for the same print job. I am not sure how I can get a vibrant look on either Silver or Clear…"

"Hello Steven, I have been looking at the Media Explorer and when you create your own media profile, it seems that there is an option to change the Overprint option - see attached. Do you know if this will work with the BN-20? Is it disabled and…"

"The metallic needs to be agitated but removing it and replacing it will be agitation in itself. You might be able to search prior posts where I explain the replacing of the metallic and or white with a cleaning cartridge. The BN is the most…"

"Thanks for the tips, Irving. I had read that some people replaced their metallic with a cleaning cartridge but I didn't really understand it. I have just done this now; although I print metallic about once a week. I assume that I wouldn't…"

"Here you go! Do you regularly use metallic - if not stop leaving that in and replace with a cleaning cartridge until you actually need it. A few PC will bring it back to the nozzle. I normally run metallic bands until I like it to prevent wasting…"

How can I prepare a BN-20 for a power outage?

Hi AllSome wild weather will be passing through my city over the next few days and I was wondering whether  there was anything I could do to prepare my BN-20 if there is no power for a couple of hours. I assume there is a risk of the head drying our. Also, I use metallic ink so is there a risk that this could dry out and clog the lines?I look forward to some guidance and wisdom.Thanks.See More

"you will have to run the job exactly as it is both times to make sure it lines up correctly.  Hopefully it will be dead on or the registration marks will not work. I would test it on a small design to see how it comes out.  Unfortunately…"

"Thanks, Steve, for the prompt response. Can I print the crop marks twice as well without upsetting the BN-20 sensor? Sorry if this is a silly question."

"simple fix -  under the cutting tab, choose return to origin after print and do not cut. Run job second time as print and cut. It will overprint on the original image and create more opacity. "

Hi All,I hope someone can give me some advice.I have a client requiring shiny chrome lettering for a sticker so I am using a silver vinyl and leaving the lettering as white (I have CMYKMt but the Mt was not shiny enough in this instance).  The customer really loves the lettering of the silver vinyl but would like the colored ink surrounding it to be more opaque or dull.I have selected a media profile that has 20 passes but I was wondering whether printing over the same job twice would help to…See More

"Thanks, Irving. Noted. With respect to the color names, the color chart uses RVW prefixes (e.g. RVW-MT-Silver, RVW-MT-25A) whereas the Special Color Ink Guide refers to RDG_MetallicSilver. The first is referred to as Metallic Color and the second as…"

"Never push the media back in the beginning - must start at the sensor. On the rear run it out until the rear marks are at the end of the platen and then it should work - 99.9 percent of the time."
