Allow material to adapt to room conditions for 24 hours before printing. It is recommended to handle the media with cotton gloves. Make sure that the media comes not into contact with grease, oil, silicon, and dirt to avoid printing defects. Insert the paper with care in the printer. Incorrect loading can cause skewing or creasing. It is recommended to calibrate the printer before printing and to make a test print. Print results will vary for different printer ink combinations.
Ink restrictions and printer settings have to be set for specific printer-ink combinations to obtain the best results. Canon media profiles will set recommended ink restrictions and printer settings for Canon supported printers. Always repack and store unused material in original poly bag.
Grommets should be placed in the hemline along the length of the banner so that the grommet is through two layers. Corner grommets should be placed where the length and width hems cross, so that the grommet is through four layers. A reinforced corner is also recommended to increase durability.
Dry the print for at least 24 hours before laminating. Pressure sensitive laminates are recommended. For prints remaining outdoor for more than 3 months, a cold overlaminate is recommended. The width of laminate film should exceed the width of the print with at least 2 cm to reduce penetration of water from the side. Lamination will prevent the image from picking up dirt. Generally lamination will not improve resistance to fading.
One-sided lamination may cause curling. Banner tape can be used and is preferred to sewing, as the sewing process can scratch the coating. If sewing, a double-stitched hem is recommended with a maximum of five stitches per inch.
