    Knackered imaging drum or something else?

    Yeah, i'm thinking boxing just the machine, smaller area to keep the temp and humidity controlled in. All good fun :-)

    Knackered imaging drum or something else?

    Running a booklet job on Saturday night, got some lines in the magenta drum. (I ran some 4 colour separations) and can see the lines on the magenta drum. Job was needed urgently, and I had the luxury of designing the artwork too, so I introduced some intentional marks on the artwork to hide the...

    Magnetic Material on Nexpress

    Hi All. Years ago, I used to run sheets on a Nexpress, it had a magnetic backing that was 'magnetised' after printing. I used to run a little roller up and down the back of the sheet. I can't for the life of me remember what that was. Does anyone know of any similar materials? I'm looking for...

    Smudging on back edge

    It's an A4 creased and folded to A5. I wondered about the grain too, so ran the sheet, feeding on the short edge, but the issue just moved elsewhere. The kick on the back edge was worse Maybe some playing round with a few different sheets. Thanks for your response :-)

    Smudging on back edge

    I wondered if there are any engineer settings I could access? Is it possible to boost the fuser temp a little? Or slow the sheet down at all?

    Photo Montage Creator

    Hi everyone, I'm doing loads of photo montages at the moment, super time consuming. I have a feeling I've seen a plugin, but imagine I was proably dreaming. I was hoping a script or plugin might exist for illustrator or indesign, that could do the following. 1. I choose a bunch of photos (say...

    Split Spreads into Single Pages?

    Thanks Keith, I remember that software from my litho days :-) . Bit too rich for my blood at the moment, sure its worth every penny, looks like it'll be the manual approach for a while longer :-) I'll keep that software in the memory banks.

    Split Spreads into Single Pages?

    Hi All, I wondered if there is some hopefully inexpensive software that can do the following: 1. Take a 4 page folded document (in printers spreads), and separate out into single pages (1-2-3-4) 2. Take single pages and impose into printers spreads I need to do step 1, when I'm converting...
