PRINTING GUIDELINES
Printer & Ink Compatibility:
GFPHOTOSIJ may be printed in most solvent ink jet piezo printing systems such as: Mimaki JV3, Mutoh Toucan, DGI, Vutek, Nur, Arizona, etc.

Printer Settings:
Optimized print settings will vary from printer manufacturers. Recommended ink saturation level is 350% . Recommended heater settings of 120°F for both pre and post heaters. These settings have been found to be a good starting point.

Outdoor/Indoor Use:
This product is recommended for indoor applications. It may be used for outdoor applications if encapsulated. GFPHOTOSIJ may be over-laminated with most cold laminates and low temperature hot laminating materials. Cold pressure sensitive adhesives typically provide the most agressive bonds and are recommended.

Material Handling & Storage:
Once print is complete, roll imaged media onto a core until ready for posting. Folding of the material is not recommended. After use, the roll should be stored at 72°F (+/-5°) and in its original packaging in the poly bag with core plugs for no more than 6 months.

FINISHING RECOMMENDATIONS
Laminating:
GFPHOTOSIJ may be over-laminated with most cold laminates and low temperature hot laminating materials. When the photobase is overlaminated with heavy gauge laminates and either mounted to a board or encapsulated, overlap the image with a 0.25″ safe edge of laminate. This will seal the photo realistic paper, preventing moisture absorption and paper splitting. Use laminates of equal gauge when encapsulating to prevent image curl. Over laminating will also decrease the rate at which images fade.

Mounting:
Cold pressure sensitive adhesives typically provide the most agressive bonds and are recommended.
