    Put a piece of Scotch Magic Tape 810 over the reg. mark. For some reasons Graphtec's have difficulty with certain reflectives.

    Humm...never thought about that. When I did mine on my mimaki, I had to actually put masking tape over the registration marks, and redraw them with a straight edge and a pen. Don't ask me how I got it to work, but somehow it was dead on. Only had to do it once. The scotch tape sounds like a way better answer.

    Covered up the marks with matte lam and got them all cut
