    I am printing on a CJV30-160 and am wondering if anyone out there has heard of being able to feed a 18x24 coroplast yard sign through it for printing. I've been told thats how the guy before me printed the yard signs but I have not found anything in the manual. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Well I do understand that it could be done on a flat bed printer is that what you are suggesting?

    Not how it's done with a solvent printer. Print on vinyl, apply that to the sign blank. To print direct to them you need a flatbed UV printer.

    Yes I know the process you speak of and have done that in the past. We have a brand new HP, its huge and maybe takes a ten or eleven foot roll, and I was told it could handle a piece of coroplast. Do you know anything about that?
    Thank you.
