    Just me and my and my almost dead Mimaki again.

    Printed 10 banners for retractables and see a ghosting overspray around one image (bitmap). I am not reprinting as the overspray is very faint but up close you can see it. It is only on one object on the banner and completely surrounded by white so not hard to deal with. I know that cleaning fluid will remove the overspray, but wonder if we can cut it with something so it is not so strong as it can dull the material where used.

    any ideas?

    ive used 99% iso with some success, but ive found with solvent/eco-sol that as long as there is a small amount of time to bite the material, it is very tough to not leave any ghosting of the overspray or original print.
