Hi All

 

I am hoping one of you kind peeps maybe able to help with a current issue.

 

Trying to print vectored graphics to vinyl via this printer, prints ok but quality is not good at all, bought the printer cheap so was always going to be hit and miss.

 

Issues I am having:-

 

Print quality is very poor 

Ink remains wet on the vinyl

 

I am new to this so any advice would be greatly appreciateIMG_7372.JPGIMG_7373.JPGIMG_7374.JPG

 

Thank you 

 

Andy

problem has to be your vinyl 100%.  Find the right kind of media vinyl that is used with dye based inks. you can do a search on hp designjets and what media will work in which machines.

is your vinyl hp brand? doesn't look like it.

your print quality looks bad because the ink is pooling in puddles and not being absorbed. Right media and it will probably look great.....
