Polyester labels settings

Several people have ask for settings for polyester labels but I forgot to write them down the first time so I had to find them through SWAG and experimenting again this morning.

Well, here they are without further ado. As always, different brand, batch etc. may need tweaking.

Has anyone done a Kiss Cut for Ikonics LaserTape?

No, but if it’s really thin, you can try those to start with…they work pretty well for films. Paper needs a slightly higher power…about 15 or maybe 20.

LaserTape has a gummy green material with a thin membrane that acts like transfer paper. I’ll just have to test to see what tackles the gummy precisely! Your settings will be where I start though.

Hi, what kind of polyester labels do you mean? Mind linking it?

We are getting them from onlinelabels.com. :slightly_smiling_face:

oh i see, so like sticker sheets?
is this better than using a vinyl cutter to do the cutting?

Are you talking about this?

No, not really, just one less tool to own if this is all you are cutting.

I do full color prints then cut them out this way.

It’s faster. A whole lot faster. :slightly_smiling_face:

I just realized that I was missing something here in my own thread. Kiss cut in this case is not the old acronym but a better way to cut these! I can be so dense at times.

Thanx @Jules, I’ll try a kiss cut next time.

BTW- I emailed Online Labels and confirmed that the Weatherproof Glossy Inkjet labels are also polyester.

Oh that’s good to know…I thought they might be (I have both) but wasn’t sure. :grinning:
