I have a high quality color lazer lazer at work. Does anyone see any problem in printing lams with this type of printer? The reason I ask is that the ink is a bit thicker and more waxy then what you will get from an inkjet. Cheers
my experience with my QMS magicolor, it ran and did not stick well to the rice paper. In some ive heard of the rice paper scorching. http://www.surfboardglassing.com
Thanks that is interesting. If i it does not run or scorch the paper does anyone else see a problem with this type of ink?
Test it first if it works it works, I know the toner in a XEROX worked fine for me a few times, but out of my QMS no dice http://www.surfboardglassing.com
Usually logos printed with a lazer jet will bleed a little, because the toner is petroleum based. Some will come out usable and some will not, depending on the machine. Ink jets do not have as high quality, but the water based ink does not bleed so it winds up looking better on the board. But try you printer and test it before you put it on your board, no matter what printer you are using. http://groups.msn.com/thegrasshoppersurfboard/shoebox.msnw
yep i use it for those one off jobs for the individual types..... you have to change the transparency from 100% to something between 45 and 60% depending on the colour and style ,the rice paper is so thin it cant take much ink before it bleeds ,also when you apply it to the board ,just put the logo on by itself without to much resin, when it sets spray a light coat of acrylic over it to seal it better, if you glass fast thats good but if you glass slow and do a slow brew it can still melt the acrylic clear and start to bleed ,maybe a thin lam coat over the logo after acrylic clear if your a slow glasser...... regards BERT
