    Not sure if I made the term up or just misused it.
    But I printed this (or started to) twice and it has what looks like a lack of ink dropping in the particular area.
    It is not in the design, I have the right profile, I did a manual and auto clean.
    I am using oracal 3165RA, the top one looks like a headstrike, but I think this happened a little bit on my last print so I do not think that is what caused it.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    Is the media warping as it heats up?

    Too high of a heat setting most likely.
    Lower the heat first, try a different roll. If it doesn't print any better clean the encoder strip.

    very interesting, I was thinking heat too. But I am using the correct profile from Oracal??? So, I changed my profile to Generic Glossy, and so far no marks...so I know that has different heat settings.

    I just dont know why the heat setting that comes with the profile would be wrong, but there is one possibility, the name for the profile references the different Versacamm (SP 300V) but that is the only one available for download, maybe there is a problem with the difference between machines (long shot).

    Profiles are just used as a starting point.. You should tweak it..and save it when your happy with results
