Printing, Laminating and Cutting Crop Marks

Post by heatherhd14 » Fri Apr 26, 2013 6:33 pm

I have a BN-20 and am having trouble with the crop marks. I print the sticker with crop marks, laminate it, then put it back through the printer. I line the crop marks up with the little "Trench" in the printer, then hit "Cut Only" on VersaWorks, The first time I did this it was flawless...however it was on a rectangular sticker. The round stickers I am trying to cut are not working. The cut is not aligning perfectly with the sticker at all! I've tried everything I can think of. And yes, I put the stickers in the exact same way they came out.

Another question, how do you print and cut stickers so they fully cut through the back of the vinyl so that they can be popped out for re-sale?

thank you!

Have you tried performing a normal print and cut ?, if so does it complete the job properly ?, it could be that the sensor is not detecting the crop marks properly, try running a job without the laminate and see if this cuts properly.

In order to cut the job through the backing you would need to create a spot colour named PerfCutContour in your design software, then when you have designed the job and brought it into VersaWorks, look in the Cut Controls tab for the expanded Perfect cut controls.

Hi Heather,

Please perform the CropCut Adjustment from the BN-20 Utility Software. This will correct the alignment of crop-cut jobs.
