Our high speed tabbing equipment
has heated rollers.
In some cases, when tabs with body
copy are run through the heated rollers, the ink bubbles or even gets lifted
off the sheet.
Use heat-resistant and wax -free
inks and varnishes when supplying printed tabs to help eliminate this problem.
Porous stocks are optimum for Mylar
jobs because air has the ability to escape into the paper. Uncoated, 70#
index stock is the most commonly one we use. Coated stocks, along with
heavy ink coverage, can trap air and create bubbles that can distort the
readability of the tab.
Tabs without body copy have no problems.
Consider this when planning tabs
and if you have any concerns, send us a sample and we will test it.
It is better to locate a problem before rather than after printing a job.
