For pictures a raster of 60 – 70 l/cm is recommended. Create the black text of only 100% black for better registration. Avoid heavy deposits of ink for faster drying.

CLEAR MATERIAL
When printing an artwork on the clear material that will be used for window advertising, print the image mirror-wise and apply an additional covering white layer (either printed or a laminated layer) to reduce the transparency.
The sticker or poster is always installed from the unprinted side to the glass. The material adheres only from the unprinted side.

Always run a test with before printing a commercial job, specially for the first time printing on STAFIX®GRIP.

STAFIX®GRIP Large Format film is printable with Eco-Solvent, UV-Inkjet, UV LED and Latex inks.

ON PRESS

Always run a test with the right inks and right conditions before printing a commercial job. Always use flexible inks.

When printing with UV presses adjust the UV lamps to a minimum level that still cures the inks but does not deform the film.

If you have problems with the registration of the clear film it is recommended to apply masking tape along the edge of the material to allow for the sensors to gain registration of the clear material

COATINGS
Varnish or coatings can be applied, Make sure you test the varnishes and coatings previous to a print run.

POSTPRESS
It can be cut on the press’s own cutting system or on a table cutter. The white (PP) material is softer than the clear (PET) material and may need different pressure to be cut.

STAFIX®GRIP Large Format can be die-cut and kiss-cut. Always round the corners when die-cutting or kiss cutting because the inner-sharp corners might cause the film to tear, Perforating, binding and direct mail inserting is also possible. When trimming, use sharp, nick-free blades.
