Printing
For optimum results select the highest print quality setting. Ink saturation limits can
vary due to the ink drop volume and environment humidity. Ink saturation levels
should be optimized for specific printer, ink and software combinations. Too much ink
will cause paper to cockle and possible head strike. Longer ink dry times will occur at
higher humidity environments.
Lamination
Warm laminates may be used although cold laminates are recommended to give better
adhesion. It is essential that prints are fully dried prior to lamination. Too much ink can
cause cockling which can lead to problems with laminating. In order to prevent
moisture ingress and paper splitting, lamination with a 5-6mm encapsulated edge is
recommended. Laminate must be evenly applied to the print in order to avoid curling.

Storage Conditions
Store at 23ºC and 50% relative humidity. Store material in original packaging until
ready to use. Allow material to adapt to room conditions before use. Papers can absorb
moisture in humid conditions or lose moisture in low humidity conditions. High
humidity conditions make the ink drying time longer and this could interfere with
proper laminate adhesion. The packaging also protects against sunlight.
