"Well Hello Let's talk Palettes - use only RGB, Pantone or Roland Color Palette I will say you have dual CMYK TR2 inks - verify that is the case  Which version of VW? DO NOT TOUCH YOUR DAMPERS DO CHANGE your Captops - VG you need 4 Once a…"

"No worries, so based on what I see and maybe it's just my screen, but the nozzle tests look gray and not solid black. Do you know the last time the cap tops were changed as well? For the dampers, they are right above the head and are what feeds…"

"Just a quick question, was the nice black color you got before you switched to TR2 inks? As I've noticed on our SG-300, since we switched to TR2 inks, sometimes we don't get as nice colors, they are more flat like our VS-300i prints.…"

Black is not printing correctly - VG540

Model - VG540TR2 ink CMYKNot sure why but my black is looking like a gray at best. I have printed satisfactory rich blacks plenty of times before but I noticed on my last few prints they looked washed out or even had blue mixed in depending on which color I used. I usually use a 30 30 30 100 for my blacks but even RGB black and as you can probably see in the attachments, BK21A looks gray and BK22A is where it looks more navy blue.I have tried both the color charts with density control which is…See More

"The issue - is that paper is normally used. You can get any eco-solvent paper, then more than regular paper, or the ink will bleed through. - So your choice would be matte or gloss and it's photo paper - seems like a waste. The other issue is…"

INEXPENSIVE MEDIA FOR DISPOSABLE FLOOR MATS

Would anybody happen to know of a 54" media roll that is inexpensive for the purpose of printing disposable floor mats for car maintenance shop uses? I am not even sure if this is a ideal use for a solvent ink versacamm but if the pricing checks out then its something I would like to take a stab at. Its for a customer I already do a lot of work for and I have a big printer so I figured I would explore this idea.It seems that 80# paper stock is generally used for the mats.Or should I leave this…See More

"Yes - too much blade extending out, and too much force. A 60deg is a sharper angle, uses less force, and does not have as much blade in the media. Just ensure you are not trying to cut through the protective carrier. Also remember you only get 8…"

Jerry Lentz replied to Jerry Lentz's discussion Cutting Stahls Reflective II on VG540
"When you say too much blade do you mean the actual blade sticking out of the holder or me using too much blade force? You are most likely right, I just wish I could find the winning combo. I never experimented with different blade angles yet but I…"

"Personally, still feel too much blade. I would use a 60 degree blade and then try less cut, but 2 passes. Just a thought. You can reduce waste by manually setting the front back and making a new base point and setting the rear page end to 0 instead…"
