#1 Hi scsantiagoch7420 First try finding proper substrate profile here: If you can't find proper profile and the substrate is for example not exactly certified for latex printing or just some material, try modifying current profile - raise vacuum to 60 or more (for example and lower it when printing if needed), print in 8 pass mode (10pass max) - for that material there is no need 16 pass printing. Lower temp but not too much to be cured (when printing solid black for example you'll need higher curing temp). Use tension rod for keeping straight substrate. At the beginning you can stick some adhesive vinyl stripes to the beginning of substrate to pull with hands and not losing printing surface... Cheers
