    I have a Mutoh Falcon indoor/outdoor printer 48" it has been converted. I use Photoshop 5.5 (I know wow thats old) to produce a lot of my wraps. Then I import them into Flexi sign to rip and print.And I print on 3M IJ180c most of the time.

    This is were I get a lot of problems. My colors are rarely ever correct I have trouble almost every job.

    I also have problems with the drain tube it is pinched and I can not keep it from pinching so I have to soak up the extra ink with a paper towel. I have tried to fix this problem but I can not get it to keep from collapsing.

    And to make things worse I have to about every three days purge the smaller drain tubes with a syreng to keep things flowing.

    The step adjustment has never been right no matter How I adjust it using plug in ICC's or by setting it up myself

    I would give any thing to be able to get consistant results in color that is the biggest problem

    Any help would be great.

    Thank you

    I get the best results from the Photoshop/Flexi combo by working in RGB mode in Photoshop and exporting the file as a flattened tif. Be sure to imbed the icc profile (I prefer Adobe RGB) in the tif.
