    Metamark Vinyl Issues

    Just printed a sign onto Metamark MD5. I use this for other products and it seems fine. This sign is around A2 size. I went to mount it onto some correx type material and it was a nightmare. Creasing before I'd got it anywhere near the board!

    Done this plenty of times over the years but obviosuly not with this material. I assume an air escape material would be better at this size? Or maybe just cut vinyl ;-)

    I always spray correx with water soap mix before I apply it.
    This way I can lift it away and get it right.

    Squeegee it out and let it dry and it’s perfect.

    Yeah, this stuff is creasing before I even get it in the board.

    Static build up maybe?
    I have this with clear application tape on long runs. The vinyl tends to jump up to the tape and if held loose it folds over on itself.
    It’s a Pain in the ass.
