    Hey guys,

    So we were comparing two canvases on our Pro4 the other day. One 17mil on Low Head Height and one 21mil on High Head Height (scared of headstrikes) but we are thinking the high head height might have put the thicker material at a disadvantage.

    At what thickness of material do you guys change to high head height?

    Thanks everyone! :Big Laugh

    not sure the exact mil thickness but when we do 2-sided blockout banners always do high head, had head strike once and swore its always better to be safe

    Most banners that thick aren't going to be viewed at any kind of close distance. Therefore, the high position should do well. You're correct, there will be a minimal difference in performance, but nothing that should interfere with the viewing distance of a banner. Besides, it's your equipment, no reason to jeopardize it for a little better printing quality for someone only paying for a banner and not the whole machine.
