    Does anyone have problems laminating perforated vinyl with optically clear laminate on their flatbed table? I have a CWT table, and haven't been able to laminate my perf job without catastrophic wrinkles occurring. I have no problem with laminating anything else with our standard 2.5mil laminate...but the 1.5mil lam is causing me problems. Looking for any tips/tricks you might have.
    Thanks in advance!

    Yes we find it tricky with thin laminates as well. We have found if you lower the pressure it helps, also if you have a second person help by holding the laminate and putting a slight tension on it will help.

    We also have issues applying premask to cut graphics, especially if there is a lot of vinyl weeded away, we get wrinkles toward the end.
