Re: Not happy with new Keencut blades

I have nothing to add regarding the actual issue here but I do want to say that I've spoken to Andy several times over the years and would have no doubt that any concerns that will be resolved. Based on the service & support I have received from Andy I can honestly say I'll be a lifetime customer of...

Floating an old poster

Evening everyone, I've got an old poster (photos attached). The owner wants it float mounted as they, understandably, want to see the edges - quite literally wear 'n tear. The only thing is I can't get anything to stick to it. It's actually fairly brittle & there's a odd coating on the back. Any sel...

Re: Pinning machine

Hi Michelle

Do you have an image or can you describe where the gap happens i.e. at the front? back? What underpinner do you have?

Re: Big Thank You

I don't know Mark, but based on the fact I nearly broke my back just taking it out of the box and moving it about 5 feet, I'd say he's a legend :)

Re: Engraver for plaques etc?

Hi Alan

Thanks for the tip - I've looked it up and whilst it looks like a nice thing to have I don't think it's for me at the moment. Now, if I had plenty of spare time and money I'd have one on it's way :)

Re: label printer

Indeed - I've learnt my lesson with using coloured stickers :lol: However, for my 'back of frame' stickers I get someone else to do them now - works out far cheaper! There's a guy across that the road from me that does signage - he can do an entire roll on self adhesive material (something like 6ft ...

Re: label printer

" repeatedly feeding the same sheet of labels through is not usually a particularly successful thing to do." I've never had a problem doing that & it's a fairly regular thing I would do - but I'm not sure if I'm following you correctly though. I only put the sheet of labels through once, the entire ...

Re: label printer

You could just use any colour printer and get some A4 sheets with self adhesive stickers already in it & various sizes are available (if that sentence makes sense). Most will have a template that you can use in Word etc

If it sells for £100 then someone has a fantastic bargain!! If I lived closer I buy it myself - just as a backup :)

Re: Engraver for plaques etc?

A sublimation printer and a heat press sounds like an interesting option. I'd be interested to hear more :)
