    Hey guys. I have fallen into an hp design jet 5000ps uv printer. I am in the market to print motorcycle graphics but I am still trying to get everything situated. I got some 3m control tack vinyl to do some testing with. I have found that the ink just sits on top, it doesn't ever soak in or dry so after a few hours it wipes right off. Just looking for some input. Maybe a better vinyl option? Thanks for any suggestions.

    The HP 5000 is not able to print on uncoated Vinyl. You need to use special coated inkjet media.

    You need a different machine, not different vinyl

    Actually I sell a 2 mil cast vinyl for vehicle wraps made for the HP design jet water based inkjet machine like the one you have, it must have the UV pigmented inks in it. It's called fast wrap and we made it a few years back for the beer guys. You will get 3 years plus on a wrap and must be laminated with cast overlam.
