    Default Paper Guide Tools

    Hey guys, stoked to be a premium member now!

    So a while back, I remember seeing these adhesive plastic clips that would stick to your print table and hold the paper in place. I wanna try them out now but cant remember where I saw them online. Anyone able to help me out? at least with the proper name for these clips?

    Also, how is everyone else holding their paper in place? I'm just using a few stacked up layers of masking tape as a 2 sided guide.

    I use what remains of a bad print run of my business cards, with plastic tape to hold them down.

    I've tried the other methods of small pieces of cardboard and old business cards and the like but I find the "E" tads to be the fastest and most reliable - especially if your paper suffers from even the most minor of warpings.

    Ours are plastic squares that we double-sided adhesive a mylar flap underneath (this keeps thin stocks from sliding under the tabs). A tab lasts 3 or four months of continuous use. We hold them down with four pieces of masking tap (2 vertical and 2 horizontal). Masking tape doesn't stretch like plastic tapes do and hold reg longer and more reliably.

    I cut tabs from an old plastic placemat that is the perfect thickness for all of the paper I use.
