    We don't use racks but send these down a shirt dryer, they reach a temp of around 275˚F to gel. I pre-ran all the paper through the dryer at the same settings for the print run. The idea with...

    I apparently suck at this. I thought that using a vac bed and a semi-auto would make this a cake walk but here's the deal:
