    Is there any marks back there that are similar or in close proximity to the crop marks?

    Are you leaving the required distance of material after the crop marks? I believe it's 3 9/16" or 90mm for the back and 3 3/16" or 80mm for the front. Refer to page 81 in your Versacamm manual. I just did some today that I forgot to leave long enough, just taped another piece of vinyl to the back and it worked just fine.

    After the print job is done, use the down arrow to advance the media out toward the front of the machine...I run out until the crop mark circles just clear the lexan front cover...this leaves the required amount of material at the tail end of the job to keep the rear photoeye covered...As SignWorks states, sometimes you will cut off without advancing the media, so use the solution they listed.

    Be sure that you have enough light on the machine, Your sensors need to be able to see the marks.

    How long is the job? On long print/cut runs the vinyl candrift slightly from the front marks to the back ones causing misregistration. Make sure the vinyl is completely square feeding into the plotter.
