Tips related to White Gloss for Inkjet Material
- Store inkjet label sheets in the original plastic clamshell packaging in a cool, dry place to avoid humidity. Storing label sheets in the printing environment for a short period before attempting to print, allows them to adjust to any temperature changes and stabilize after shipping, which may prevent common printing problems.
- Store your inkjet labels away from fumes and other odors, as it will absorb these properties- resulting in the label changing colors.
- Prevent label sheets from being exposed to direct sunlight or flood lights.
- Before you print onto a label sheet, first print onto a blank piece of paper. Place the sheet in front of the label sheet, and then hold the sheets up to a light to make sure the positioning is correct.
- Before and after printing, handle label sheets by the edges of the sheet being careful not to get oil from your fingers on the printable label surface. Oil may cause smudging.
- Allow label to dry completely before stacking, handling or peeling the printed labels.
- Sheets of gloss inkjet labels can be passed through the printer only once. Numerous runs through the printer will cause the label to jam or peel off.
- We do not recommend printing your gloss inkjet label in a photocopier or laser printer, as there is a higher chance of jamming.
