Clean with whatever cleaning solution you need to to remove finger prints etc. Then oil it. Baby oil works very well :)

Re: Low tack tape for signwriting

I can recommend the tape sold by Handover. If you're a seasoned sign writer, you'll appreciate that their tape can be torn easily mid letter and peeled back to allow you to complete those round letters and numbers etc.

^That will make sense to sign writers!^

I have checked out the prices of Signlab and £550 for the upgrade is quite reasonable :oops:....altho I'm not sure if that includes the thermal printing module :o

So, I think I am calling it a draw !
