Printing as always been a very lucrative business with low start up cost and with the potential of very high profits! As with all small business ventures there are risk involved so make the right decision buy right pay once, buy wrong pay twice! There are a lot of cheap machines on the market that are not fit for purpose and you get what you pay for!!
Always ask for a full Demo
In order to get a good clean print then you must achieve the follow 4 factors when printing
The foils we supple in our kit are a good general purpose foil suitable for most applications (don’t be tempted to buy cheap foils or second hand)
2/ Temperature control.
Good temperature control is needed as some jobs react deferent by adsorbing more heat, so consistent temperature is a must.
When printing you need good pressure control as this will give you consistency.
With our toggle action and pressure stop combined with the rear 4 pressure screw give you the control you need.
4/ Dwell Timing
Dwell timing is between 1-3 seconds as this can very between print job.
Once you have achieved all the 4 factors above you will get good clean print.
Always make sure you are using the correct foil for the application
Always disguss this with your foil supplier before buying!
The foil we supply with our machine are a geraral perpose foil and works well on most applictions but not all!
When printing onto leather you will need to use Brass engraved or deep etched Magnesium printing dies!
You can also use brass letterpress type on lether and on some synthetic you can use alloy type
