Printing

Printing tips

We strongly recommend performing a test prior to actual printing. This applies to both printing graphics on Clear Focus One Way Vision films and applying an overlaminate to the printed graphic.

Screen printing
Use a more viscous ink and apply less ink than normal.
Use a higher resolution screen (65-line is acceptable, 85-line is optimal).
Use lighter squeegee pressure than normal to prevent flooding of the holes with ink.

Electrostatic transfer, thermal transfer, wide-format digital imaging
Due to the wide variety of transfer papers, toners, inks and other variables used with these printing methods, we recommend performing a test prior to actual printing.

In most cases using the same settings as those used for printing solid vinyl should yield satisfactory results.

Note: When using a CLEAR FOCUS perforated vinyl film with the solid (unperforated) siliconized paper liner, allow extra time for the inks to dry before handling the graphics.
