Both solvent inkjets. Turnaround, 24 hours from artwork if required. Cost - trade prices. Regards Richard - Raccoon D...

Jon is right, the graphics were printed onto Graficast from Grafityp. These were unlaminated due to the fact it was a sprinter van. If anyone has been able to wrap a sprinter using a laminated print (any material), I would be interested to hear there results. We printed the image for Jon at Vital Si...

solvents 'drop'

Hi guys, Further to my previous message, I seemd to lose the letter 'p' from the word drop. Once you have printed onto s/a vinyl using a solvent printer, you need to hang the prints out. As mentioned previously, this allows the solvents to drop out of the vinyl. The reason - solvents are heavier tha...

digital print setup

Question? Is your pulley system to help the prints dry, or to help remove the solvents?? If it is to dry the prints. then shouldn't this be the job of the printer?
