    Does anyone have a general rule of thumb for heat settings for different medias printed on a VJ1618? For example, general vinyls vs. papers, ect...

    I'm trying to profile 220gsm Gloss Paper and unfortunately, the manufacturer doesn't have any information online. Anyone have any recommendations?

    Thank you.

    Yea they do... Use the Roll to Roll Heaters (Pre, Platen, and After/Dryer) and set them to 50/50/50

    But you need to adjust if the vinyl deforms. Deformation could cause head strikes, I'm sure Stealth has a good start temp. Just realise it's not an absolute number.
