Printing on Flexible Materials
Magnetic Sheeting Printing Tips
Thank you for choosing Magnet Source® brand flexible magnetic sheeting. Follow these guidelines for printing on your flexible sheeting purchase. It is always best to contact your printer manufacturer for recommended printing profiles and instructions.
Determining the correct printable topcoat compatible with your printer is the first step:
- Solvent, eco-solvent, UV and latex ink systems can print direct to vinyl or coated surfaces (PrintMagnetVinyl™, ThinFORCE™, FlexIRON™ (magnetic receptive).
- Aqueous inks can print on a paper topcoat (PrintMagnet™)
- Solvent, eco-solvent, UV, and latex inks do not require an extra protective coating, but a clear protective laminate can be used to extend the durability when used outdoors. Paper topcoats printed with aqueous ink definitely require a protective laminate if used outdoors or if the printed piece will be handled often.
Note: Master Magnetics, Inc. is not responsible for any damage to your printer caused by improper preparation and set-up of magnetic sheeting.
