    Default Static in screen

    We're printing on the cover of some books in the next couple of weeks,
    and after running a test this morning, noticed the covers popped up and liked to touch the screen.
    I would push them back down and all would be fine (maybe I was discharging whatever static energy there was),
    but I don't want to deal with that through the whole run, obviously.

    The books will be perfect bound (Paper is a coated 80# cover).

    Maybe it's too dry in the studio?
    Or is there some trick to keep static from building up?

    I just want to figure it out before it becomes a headache when we're trying to print on the final books.

    We spray the whole print area (floor and such) with water. The increase in humdity helps some. Also depending on the image, printing the book at 90 degrees to how your proofed it may mean the flap lifts in a more helpful manner. I printed 3000 book fronts in a day only to find at the end of the run that I was only supposed to print 1500. I just got into a groove and never imagined I could print that many. The customer was p.o.ed.

    Really?
    Static guard?

    Isn't there something really overpriced that will work half as well?

    When we get the books there will be 1500 or so.
    We're going to try and print 4 up I think.
    They're not very big.

    Today was the test to show the designer that his artwork can't bleed off the edge.
    I know we can't do it. But he wanted to make sure, of course.
