no curl

We use metamark matt md5 with no laminate.
We then apply some gentle heat using an heat gun and a felt squeege.

I think the problem is the laminate.

Hope this helps

Are you using a take-up roller on your machine? If so this can have an effect on panel sizes if you leave the machine on a long print run, say over night etc. The take up roller stretches the vinyl over the run and the panels end up out of synch.
