    High temp, the ink does not want to dry. tricky stuff, we print on oracal 851 silver with some luck.

    My SP-300V prints nicely on oracal 851 metallics or Avery metallic films. I always use the default heat settings 37 / 40

    What are you guys doing about laminating though over cut vinyl your printing on?

    I've done it the same way as iSign. Never had success in printing directly on silver Oracal 751. Will try the 851. Thanks for the hint.
