    Default Registeration with deckled edges

    We have a project coming up where we need to print on some art paper with deckled edges. I need to know if anyone has any tips on registering the paper. We were considering cutting the paper, printing, and re deckling the edges but if anyone's got any PRO tips, we'd appreciate the input!! anything helps.
    thanks in advance

    lasers?

    I've always wondered if there was a smart and cheap way to use lasers as registration guides.

    lightly spray mount them to clear plastic/mylar so you have a register corner. then pull them apart when your done

    I think deckling post-printing would be the best way. right?

    Some people cut the deckle slightly off of the very end of the corners.

    yo bob

    is it deckle all the way round? if it is only on two sides i cut a small notch into the deckle at the corner, and register along the cut side and the newly cut corner. you can then rip it off (see below) or cut it off

    As long as you have an inch or two of extra paper, its easy to rip an edge to produce a new deckle - and you can print a full bleed.

    use a piece of heavy metal bar, and rip from the back - this will produce a nice ragged edge on the front of the sheet. set up a jig to make it quick.

    the other option is to carefully glue (with removeable adhesive) 2 squares of card to the back in two corners - or a whole sheet of backing card about 1/2" bigger all way around. then register to the edge of the card.

    some people use (gasp) pin register for this. kind of like above, you go through anstick the tabs to the back in relatively the same position on each one, then punch them all, then use pins for register.

    -take a big sheet of acetate (transparency) and tape it to the table but just on one side of the sheet, like a hinge.
    -print on that
    -line up your paper underneath the acetate
    -pull the acetate back, print on paper

    works best if you dont have to simply rely on gravity to keep the paper in place.
