* Whilst these recommendations are given in good faith based on our experience, it is important that the printer pre-tests on the actual substrate to be used BEFORE commencing bulk production. There are so many manufacturers of substrates producing
a multitude of grades and qualities, that it is impossible to guarantee suitability.
