    Hello All

    Anyone know if there is a way to calibrate or align the machine for when it comes for the next color ??
    It looks like my machine is off by about 0.025" and it looks like it shifts about 0.025" for every color
    The more spot colors you have the more it gets shifted to the left

    Any ideas anyone ???

    Thanks

    Do you have an image available?

    Is it consistently 0.025" or does it fluctuate a bit? Also does is it different if your print is only a few columns vs a larger several yard long print?

    I have run into similar issues but need more details.

    Yes there is a way to calibrate the foil placement - check your help section in your software. it involves printing a small sample, and then it asks you which direction you would like to move the registration for each color.

    check under foil registration adjustment in your software manual. I have never used the feature though.

    Good Morning

    I been messing around with this the last little while, all i can fin is under the print preview you can click on adjust, then you can print a pattern and adjust each color
    witch works well but you have to do it every time for every job with becomes a pain

    This morning i printed red lettering with a 0.030" white boarder and on the left it pretty much touch the black fill

    There must be a better way ???

    Thanks

    Use chock and spread to get rid of the gaps as it sounds like that is your issues. You can also add a stroke to fill in if you are getting white gaps between colors.
