Tips:

  • Flash must be laser printed or photo copied, NOT Ink jet or bubble jet.
  • It is important to feed the stencil paper straight into the machine to avoid jamming the machine with the paper.
  • When the light comes, you need to pause slightly to allow to light to get hot.  (slight pause 0.5-1 second)
  • When you insert the stencil paper (the machine comes on) make sure the light is on before continuing to insert stencil paper.
  • This machine uses Thermal paper, you must purchase yourself, no thermal paper included!
