"Cool--the only suggestion I have is to try running text parallel to the rollers. I was taught that this will eliminate the "end-of-line" inking variation, because then the line of type itself holds the rollers up. If the rollers are only…"

Impression heavier on edges of text block

Hey, guys! I'm trying to troubleshoot an issue I've been having a lot lately. Because this happens with just about everything I print, I'm assuming it's an issue not with my makeready, but with either my rollers or the print bed. Any time I have a longer line of text, the words on the ends of the line will print much heavier than the middle. Do you think this is a roller height problem? I've attached a picture for your reference. Any help would be greatly appreciated! ThanksAllie…See More
