    The older you get the easier the mistakes come.
    Just today I set up a 17ft banner to run three times - got the take-up reel ready so when enough material dropped I could tape it to the core and walk away. Got the walk away part down pat - came back to see 50 feet of banner piled up on the floor.

    We nearly put out a batch .040 metal signs because they had a clear liner on one side of them unlike the pink or blue liner we typically get. Only realized it as they were at the front counter for pick up and someone noticed a corner lifting. Everything gets a liner check now! We'll write on clear liners so that an installer doesn't forget to take it off on the jobsite, but I remember one case where the customer called us the next morning saying their backlit sign was vandalized at night because they could see large Xs. Next day the installer went back out and didn't see anything so he came back. It wasn't till I asked him if he took the liner off that he realized he didn't.

    I usually keep 3 strips (Left, Center, Right) of thin 1in banner material that are long enough to be taped to the print and the take up roll. This way I can start the print and walk away. It also helps to keep a more consistent tension on the print, which reduces banding at the start.
