    Question Edge gap

    Thanks Justin, those were all the settings I was looking at too... just wasn't fixing it! However... turns out there's a margin setting right on the printer - and it overrides these Flexi settings... ugh. Mine was set to 25mm... changed it to 3mm / all is right in the world again :) (... and we...

    Question Edge gap

    Hi all! Its been a long time since I've had a question I couldn't find an answer to here.. but here's one I'm stuck on. Recently updated to Flexi 19 - after doing the setup for my Mutoh VJ1204 the printer begins printing about an inch in from the right side (used to be about 1/4 inch) - I can't...

    what force do you guys set your plotter when cutting laminated vinyl graphics?

    Summa - 180gms with a sharp blade - go up to 200 as it wears.

    using print media for cut vinyl?

    hmmm... well, this might spin this thread off-topic, but hopefully not... This seems to me one way in which the sign industry has changed so much. To me, there is no such thing as "cheap" or "economy" cut vinyl signs anymore. Just too much labour in cutting/weeding/taping/ etc When someone...

    using print media for cut vinyl?

    I can't think of any obvious reason.... But is there any reason not to simply use vinyl print media, in place of "white cut vinyl" just to save stocking extra inventory?

    Vinyl is peeling ... what should I seal it with?

    I have had this problem as well - 3mm PVC - "economy" (have to look up the number) Oracal vinyl - full bleed prints. Edges start curling off within a few minutes to an hour. I tried cleaning the PVC with rapid prep, let the prints dry/cure overnight, then tried a different brand of vinyl (some...

    I'll check that out, thanks! Alberta is not out of the question either, just gonna take a little longer for shipping I guess.

    Life Times CR Motor

    whenever I start up / at the end of a print job - I get this error: "Life Times [CR Motor]" I just hit "Enter" and it clears... I'm assuming this is in reference to the carriage motor... but is it a built in timer, that I can reset somehow (because its working fine) or do I actually need to...

    Flex Face panels

    lol, this is going right into a thread I had going a short while ago, about printing back-lit panels. I am re-doing one right now, with cut vinyl, because the customer found the "washed out" look, when lit up to be unacceptable :( There's other threads here too, on that subject. I just figured...

    Flex Face panels

    so, I am pretty much losing any lexan/plexigless/ back lit business I'm quoting on, to "Flex Face" panels. Which I have no experience in whatsoever. I've asked suppliers for "help" and got pretty much nowhere, then of course I remembered my best source for info - signs101! :) At this point, I...

    I Broke my VJ1204

    well, working on these things is interesting, to say the least! I am making some headway here though.... first, the reason it would return a CR error after the head moved 10 inches, was that while cleaning in there, I smudged ink on that clear mylar strip (still not sure I understand that...

    I Broke my VJ1204

    so here's my cap, you can (kinda) see the pin sticking out on the right side (bottom) but not on the left. I'm assuming there should be one there too, its broke off? If anyone is familiar with these? However... that tube that comes off the upper block (not the ones under the cap) - for the life...

    I Broke my VJ1204

    to start at the start.... this an 8 year old ValueJet 1204. - the second black set of nozzles were not printing the bottom third of the lines on "nozzle check" - after looking things over, I decided my capping station (I think that's what its called...) was quite dirty, and maybe not making a...
