Signs sticking together

Posted on Sat, 19 Nov 2005 at 9:54



I am new to all of this and need some tech help. I have a small sign business and when I print the coro signs, they come out fine, I put them on the rack and wait and not matter how dry they feel, if I stack them vertically along the wall to get my orders ready to go out, whe I go out the next morning to box them, half of them will be stuck together. I am getting pretty frustrated hearing the sound of two pieces of coro being pulled apart due to stuck ink. I am using Color FX Graphic ink and adding retarder like the rep said to.
I am curious if maybe it is where I live. Here in central FL we have a lot of humidity a lot of the time. I close the shop and run a dehumidifier and an air conditioner overnight after a printing day in order to try and get the ink dry. It has helped and the cooler weather with less humidity has also helped but hopefully I will not be out of business by next summer so I need to solve the problem. Any ideas?
