    Hi Folks,
    Anyone know where I can get a dust cover for my SP 540v. I would love to have it printing away 27/7 but none the less it does sit idle for a few days at a time. Does anyone know where these can be purchased?
    Thanks

    If your place gets that dusty where you have the printer .... that quickly... I would sooner consider moving it. Even while you're using it it will get dusty and crap fall in/onto it if your conditions are that bad.

    Anyway, just put a big piece of plastic over it or an 8' long of 2' wide bubble-wrap.

    We use 2 big packing blankets to cover our SP-540v every night when we close.

    I am really surprised that the mfgs don't send one along...seems kinda dumb to me that they don't...and that there doesn't seem to be anyone making them but I see a lot of people asking for them. SNAP, maybe someone needs to venture into this!

    My Royal Sovereign laminator came with a cover but my 3X more expensive Mutoh ValueJet did not. We just bought a twin size sheet to cover it with. Cut out and applied a Mutoh graphic to it so it looks professional....kind of.

    Made our own with canvas for awnings

    Just cut patern on sides measure from rear low point you want to cover to front low point.
    and bring it to local commercial sewing guru

    Even customize it with lettering

    Done:thumb:

    fuzz!
    why letter it?
    design the pattern then print it on some real light canvas, JM Mediatex sells some real light canvas that would work perfect, I believe its the Aqua material. Mock up the pattern with some cheap packaging paper and tape, then lay it out in adobe just like a wrap job. Don't forget to leave some overlap for the stitching. Sweet idea.

    I'm with huffz on this...just use an old sheet..cut and hemmed...helps if the wife has a sewing machine.
    I don't like plastic 'cause of the static electricity.
    Cheers!

    Seems to me you might be talking about the plastic dust cover which covers the print area when you are in operation,. if so go to signsupplysupply.com and download catalog. they have them but are hard to come by. We recieved ours but took 4 weeks.
