Drying Time - VP540i Print & Cut

We are using a VP540i Roland.

Having printed and cut our artwork to make wall stickers (continuous operation on the Roland), how long should we be leaving the printed media stud on end to allow the inks to cure before we weed and apply application tape?

Re: Printing Black Ink

I’m using the same inks and vinyl and have printed many similar designs without problem. Now that it has turned colder in the studio maybe I need to turn the heater up a little. What temperature settings do you normally use?

Printing Black Ink, Ink drying / pooling issues. Help needed please?

I have had a problem printing black ink this evening.

The wall sticker that I was making had printed fine apart from where it had printed black ink. The black ink was laid down heavy and the ink ran.

I have not come across this before. Any ideas what has caused this?
