Ink:

The remoisten glue is best if the following are taken into account:
  • A minimum of ink coverage should be used under the glue area, allowing for the best bonding of the glue area to the paper.
  • Screen or "phantom" the printed image 30% or greater.
  • NO SOLID INK COVERAGE under the glue or in the area it will stick to.
Production:
Avoid contact with anything that may "wet" the remoisten glue, bonding with the opposite side will take place. Sweaty hands can cause glue activation. Puckering of the paper may occur, care should be taken to jog carefully.
