Hingst’s Sign Post: Processing Instructions for CoolPrint

Sign Builder Illustrated columnist Jim Hingst writes: “Some articles, such as umbrellas, backpacks, computer bags and raincoats, are difficult if not impossible to heat press. Now you have a cool new option from RTape Corp. It’s a printable, pressure-sensitive polyurethane film called CoolPrint. The new film sticks to virtually every surface. It even sticks to surfaces with a hydrophobic coating. And it sticks to leather.

CoolPrint is printable with solvent and eco-solvent inks. You can also cut it with a plotter with either a drag knife or tangential knife. Prior to production, perform a test cut to ensure that the plotter is cutting properly. Adjust the blade depth, downforce pressure, and offset value as needed.
