Hi @dhruv1002,

While I can't tell where the deformation happens, there are some tips for printing with thin rigid substrates. This kind of material is heat sensitive and requires higher values for the vacuum. Also, when the deformations happen on the sides, it could be interesting to use the Media Edge Holders. I hope it helps.

Hi #1,

On my experience when printing thin PET film with around 2mm thickness, I use 2 sided tape to fix to position of the sheet on the belt. With bigger sheet, I taped is on the bigger board of aluminium to make it flat while printing.

Media Edge Holder is the good option for deformation but only when it happen on 2 side of the sheet, if it happen on the middle of the sheet, 2 sided tape is good choice. But make sure you clean the glue after printing, because it can prevent the suction when printing other media.

Hope this help.
