1 x A4 inkjet artwork films for use with the stampmaker kit and photopolymer plates.
Please note, inkjet printer settings must be adjusted to 'speciality' or 'matte' paper.
You can only print on one side. To find out which one, wet your fingers and hold the paper, which ever side sticks to your wet finger is the side you need to print on.
We always recommend doing a small test stamp each time you change printer ink brand, to see how clear your stamp turns out;
Some inks have better UV filters than others, so even if light is visible through the black areas, light could still be blocked. Pigmented black ink is the best type to use with Artwork Film, as it prevents UV light penetrating through, even if you can sometimes still see light through the black areas.
Imagepac recommends you always use original ink in your printer Some cheaper inks use dye rather than pigment, in which case you may need to print multiple copies to line up with each other, until you can no longer see light through the black areas. This is because this type isn’t as efficient at blocking UV light.
I've used quite a few of these now and not had any issues with creating imagepac stamps from them, with the exception of using an epson printer, they just aren't dark enough (but the imagepac website does recommend not using them). I bought a cheap HP Deskjet 1010 to use for this purpose and it does the trick beautifully. Not had any issues since.
Its ok, but if you touch it with your fingers it leaves a great big white finger print on it, I suggest using gloves. Also if your using it with the stamp maker kit, make two copies of the same pic, and exactly match them up (if using an ink jet printer, and yes I have my ink on darkest full black/white and an excellent printer), once you understand that it works well.
