you could try some anti static tinsel to help discharge some of the static of the material as it enters the printer, or if the printer is located in a somewhat enclosed area get a humidifier to increase the humidity of the room.

When I first read your description I was going to assume overspray due to static but that looks pretty strange.

Does it always do this? What is the temperature/humidity in your shop?

Dryness/static is always worse in the winter so we have an in-line humidifier on our hvac system and regularly hose down the floor throughout the day. Happy place is around 50-55% humidity for us.
