I actually have a couple issues…
- As mentioned in the title, I have random bands that are sometimes appearing in a custom piece I’m working on. I’ve been burning through a bit of maple plywood for this trying to get just the right look for an 8x10 of a wedding photo and saw this twice… once in an early test that I didn’t plan to use… and again last night when I went to do the “final” version. Images of the banding are shown below, along with prints not showing it. It’s quite irritating to think you’re running your last print to find that something not in the image randomly pops up. Beta… sigh.
Is this due to inconsistencies in the proofgrade material? If so, I’d like replacement of/credit for 2 pieces of medium maple plywood.
- That same print from last night failed to cut through the entire outline of the 8x10… everything but the top cut and a bit of the sides at the top worked, but not that bit. Another photo is attached for that… again, is this because of inconsistencies in the material?
Non-banded - “last” test print - I almost could have used this one, but it was printed on the backside of a previous test… the forge lost calibration between prints and left an unprinted band at the top to boot
Failure to cut - this is the backside of the first banding image above, what was supposed to be my production cut
