    Anyone have any luck printing on GMI Hi-Stat Cling (8mil white). GMI even has a profile for the printer/material combo but I can't even get close to a good print. Very splotchy...

    Any hints/tips/tricks?

    Thank you

    How old is the media?

    Splotchy can be plasticizer migration.

    Try some alcohol on a small piece.

    I have had good success with both the clear and white version of those clings. I was using Wasatch and had to do a 720x1440 w/double-strike to achieve my ideal density, but worked. It was slow, but quality was good. I agree with Randy A as I never had splotchy results, so check the life of the media to make it wasn't yellowing or just old. Good luck!

    well, the alcohol didn't make a difference. Bi-Di actually appears to help... heating settings made a big difference. Too low = bad, Too high = really bad.

    I think I have it printing so-so. A little more playing might do it.

    Luckily, the customer thinks it wonderful...

    Thanks for the tips guys.
