Print Inkjet Cover Film


    When using the inkjet printer of the custom template kit to make templates, the quality of your artwork and inkjet film positives has a great influence on the effect of the final template. If your ink is not deep enough, it will allow the light from the exposure device to penetrate into your artwork, causing the emulsion underneath the artwork to semi-solidify, which will cause complete pain during the process... well, you Will get this idea! Please follow the tips below to make sure you start using the best inkjet film positives.

    1. Start with high-quality artwork
    When it comes to the result of the final template, the quality of the artwork is very important. The 100% black high-density artwork with sharp edges will provide you with the best UV blocking effect.

    2. Inkjet printer settings for high-density printing
    Every printer is different, but if your inkjet printer allows you to adjust ink and paper settings, we recommend adjusting the ink settings on the printer to print with black ink only, and adjusting the paper settings to glossy or photo paper. This will give you the maximum density when printing.

    The following is an example of how to change the print settings on an inkjet printer to get the best printing results (options may vary from printer to printer):

    Click File, then click Print
    In the "Print" window, open "Properties" (may be called "Options", "Printer Settings" or "Printer Preferences")
    Under Paper Type, select Inkjet, Glossy or Photo
    Under the print quality, choose the best
    Under the color options, select black and white or only black (if this is an option)
    Under Printer Speed, select the slowest possible option or uncheck any boxes that indicate fast or fast
    3. Mirror your work
    When printing with an inkjet printer, we recommend mirroring your work for best results. Some artwork programs or printers provide this option directly in the print dialog box. If your inkjet printer does not provide you with this option, you will need to mirror your work in your design program.

    but why? When you mirror your artwork, it allows you to contact the printed side of the printed transparencies with the emulsion side of the template, thus forming a better seal between your artwork and the template film, which will help eliminate light Penetrate under the edge of your design.

    4. Print on the emulsion side of the inkjet printer film
    When printing on inkjet printer film, be sure to print on the emulsified side of the film. The emulsion side is the dull side. This side of the film has a special coating that can make your ink deeper and help it dry faster. If you try to print on the shiny side, your ink will not dry out. The following are some tips to determine which side of the film’s emulsion side is:

    The less shiny side-remember... milky white rather than silky!
    The side where you can put your nails in
    If you lick your finger, the side where your finger will be stuck
    If you rub the film with your fingers, the squeaky side
    5. Always use genuine ink cartridges
    No matter what type of printer you have, we always recommend that you use an ink brand made specifically for your printer. For example, if you have an Epson printer, you should use Epson brand ink. Counterfeit or cheaper inks will not print as dark as inks designed for printers you own.

    6. Troubleshooting common problems
    Only one inkjet printer film can be put into the printer at a time. Some printers cannot read transparencies. If your printer keeps spitting out blank paper, you may need to "cheat" it to print on transparencies. Here are some tips we recommend to try:

    Place the blank label along the front edge and side (depending on where the printer’s eyes are), and then remove it after printing
    Stick a piece of white paper on the transparencies and remove it after printing
    Use a black marker around the edge of the inkjet film

    However, if you want to buy a printer, we recommend that you buy an inkjet printer. Inkjet printers usually print darker positives to better block light and make the processing process easier and faster.
