    Hi ladies,

    I wonder if any of you might be able to help…

    I’m trying to print a bunch of CD sleeves – the foldable ones which need glueing – on my Adana 8-5, and I’m finding it impossible to find a way to keep the card in place to register and print them steadily.  Lots of flapping, lots of mistakes.

    Has anyone successfully done it?!

    Thanks all!

    Have you tried taping them to the tympan? It would be crazy slow going, but it would keep your register. Say, use a few squares of something like this (http://www.staples.com/Scotch-Restickable-Strips-1-inch-x-3-Clear-6-Pack/product_857700) on the tympan–making sure that they’re not under an area that’s being printed, and also that the area would be hidden when you fold the sleeves.

    Good luck!

    Hi Kelly,

    You’re right, that’s a great idea – need to stick the things down somehow and masking tape or the things you suggested might do it.  I’ll let you know! 

    Thanks for replying.

    Kate
