I'm printing on polyprpolene to make retractable stands. After a week the edges start to curl it becomes bad enough that clients reject our work. Help any ideas would be great

Hello Seven,

Are you laminating the poly as some times with the weather changes the laminate shrinks and can cause curving. There are some products that are on the market the are advertised as none curve.

Contact SAS on 1300 727 118 they have some product that is very good with excellent results.

Polyprope is a synthetic paper that will always curl, even without lamination.

Some people have arrived at work arounds such as laminating both sides at once, but the only true road to a flat banner stand is to use a Polyester product in stead.

Ilford 7mil White film (ON1WF7) is extremely popular for this as it's Polyester, it will not curl. There is now also a polyester cold laminate that will additionally not curl. This solution is more expensive than the cheaper polyprope but as always - you get what you pay for, and when you cost the better media per stand the difference in cost is not enough to worry about.

Better to use a quality product if this is a problem you actually need to resolve once and for all, because while you may find a work around to make polyprope sit flat it's not going to be quick or easy.
