    Looking for advice on splicing tape for Poly-Prop heat sealable pouches. Standard red press splice tape triggers the sensor on the packaging lines for pouches and also does not heat seal.

    Barcodes under 80%

    M@CK Thats a great suggestion! I should have mentioned we have done this in the past. Sometimes though they do not understand the conversion, refuse to let us change it for any number of reasons or the end customer is many people removed (sales guy, broker, art house). So assuming thats not an...

    Barcodes under 80%

    I would like to know how some other flexo printers handle customer requests for a barcode under 80%. We guarantee that barcodes 80% and over will scan on our printed products. We do this by replacing all barcodes with our own. Doing verification in prepress and at press during the press run...

    Epson Stylus Pro 7900 problems . . . .

    One other thing to double check is the cutter. We once had bits of paper on the blade that was scratching the prints. We thought it was the head also until we took out the blade and saw the buildup. Just a thought. Best of luck.

    Esso job queue

    I think it has to be something in your ticket. I was thinking you may need to purchase an additional Esko "worker". But even with 1 worker the task should just wait for the first to be completed. What is the error specifically?

    PMS color and formulas

    Wondering if anyone has any resources that list PMS colors and release dates. Basically what I am looking for is a list of release dates and what color numbers were released on that date, no technical info on the colors. Also for those who order ink and those who mix their own ink. How quickly...

    EFI Radius - Barcodes

    Thanks for the info Stephen. Our CSR's manually enter them into the MIS and it comes to prepress without issue unless the original code was not entered correctly. For the most part it works OK but it seems there should be a "barcode area" in Radius.

    EFI Radius - Barcodes

    How about any MIS system, not just Radius. How is barcode information fed to your prepress department to generate correct barcodes?

    EFI Radius - Barcodes

    Can anyone tell me where barcode information is entered for jobs in EFI Radius? Does it give you options for different codes and possibly validate the number of characters entered for that code type? Thanks!

    Deleting objects outside the Media Box (Margins)...

    Are you using Deskpack and Automation engine only? I know it can be done in an Artpro action list but not sure of what AE task would achieve that.

    Car blueprints (vectors)

    Couple options for you. If you only need one vehicle I would recommend very nicely asking your local sign shop/vehicle wrap shop. They probably have it.
