    Hello all,

    Looking a little advice please. I went through an entire roll of Roland ESM-WSC White Static cling yesterday that and the quality was great, (see good.jpg) noting that I've had that roll for about 2 weeks in the shop and it came from my suppliers local warehouse.

    I ordered 2 more rolls for this job and they had to ship from Toronto overnight because local was out of stock. The 2 rolls showed up and I've started printing on the second roll only to notice that the image is appearing mottled now (see bad.jpg)

    I've also noticed that the backer for the first roll was way thinner than these 2. Does anyone know if Roland changed the backer thickness in the past. I'm thinking that maybe my first roll was way older and past shelf life, or maybe the 2 rolls I just received are older?

    I'm running a SP-300 with Colorip 2.0 so the profiles I found from Roland won't work because they're for VersaWorks.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!
    Tony

    PS - Image size is 2" X 3" and I'm doing 5000pcs (yeah, I know...........)

    Forgot to mention - the best way to compare the photos is to look at the monsters green hoodie. The first roll printed nice and solid.

    If the new rolls have thicker backing you might want to try to up the heat a bit and see if the pebble look goes away. That is what I would get on cal media when the heat is not up high enough.

    If that does not help then there may be a slight change in the media and you might need to try other profiles.
