    I would love to see this on something with a cool base color. The first 2 people that are interested in trying this out, I will print this up to 2 meters per person for $20 a meter, plus shipping. Say "I do!" below.

    First person that says "I do!" below we get a free meter of the above film. Only requirement is that you post pic of dipped film in 2 Weeks from receipt of film.

    IT IS FREE! Just say "I do!".

    I would but... The chance that a noob would have to post up a failed dip might be too much pressure.

    If you can dip regular film you can dip this. Its a whole meter. The only difference is the time you let it hydrate. Instead of 60 seconds, I recommend 90 seconds at about 85 degrees. This is pretty much bullet proof. If it is a failed dip, we can help you get it where you dip it with easy. Custom film will open up options for your customer to have a wider selection of film to choose from. Once you learn how to use this, the depth of your offering is just about infinite.

    @gardnerddd one question before I dip it. I've never used custom film printed this way. So which side goes on water? Printed side or other? Also recommended soak and dwell? Thanks

    The side with nothing on it should go on the water. The picture should be looking up at you.
    I suggest about
    82 - 87 degrees for water (suggest 85 degrees)
    75 - 90 seconds soak (90 is my suggestion)
    Cool Activator (Superbrew, k2brew, Dip Juice, TWN 2010, maybe hydrovator cut)
    Tic - Tac -Toe spray pattern
    Medium pass
    10 - 20 second sit time after activate
    Dip
    Rinse

    Thanks will be giving it a try here with in a couple days. 
  • gardnerdddgardnerddd Posts: 220Member, Business Ninja ✭✭✭
    Exactly what my Jr. said. ^^
  • gardnerdddgardnerddd Posts: 220Member, Business Ninja ✭✭✭
    You should find this a little bit easier to deal with than paper backed film as there is nothing to peel off. Just put in tank with pic side up and start the process.
  • gardnerdddgardnerddd Posts: 220Member, Business Ninja ✭✭✭
    @DeviousDips - Also, make sure your dams are tight.

    I would love to try this out and send you some pictures, I have been away from the dipping for awhile due to some health issues, but am back and wanting to go full bore on the dipping.

    Welcome Back! @Redneckray Long time no see...
  • RedneckrayRedneckray Posts: 218Member ✭✭

    Ok here are my results on @Hydro_Digital_Films custom printed films. @gardnerddd. These pics are right after rinse with no touch up of coarse. 
    First I think the film works great. Easy to use, easy to get on the water, and dipped really easy. 
    Water was 88 degrees with 90 soak 10 dwell and k2 superbrew. I would definitely recommend for custom film printing with my experience. First pic was my motor cover which I plan the letters being black and I'm gonna shoot some brown and orange candies to give it a rust appearance. 2nd was my sample pc to see how the film worked.

    @gardnerddd the only question I would have is the I'm guessing tile lines in between each tile. Can it be one continuous run or are those in every print?
  • gardnerdddgardnerddd Posts: 220Member, Business Ninja ✭✭✭
    @DeviousDips - I will check that out, I didn't notice it when I printed. I think I can get rid of the lines. Thanks for posting the pictures, it looks really cool. When your done, post the finished pics we would love to see them. I will also check with @studebaker to see if the lines were meant to be there to make it look like patched metal. Thanks again.
  • studebakerstudebaker Posts: 2,926Member, Business Ninja ✭✭✭✭✭
    Oh my God! Those lines are my fault @DeviousDips and @gardnerddd I made the mistake with the way I exported the file. For those of you who make your own patterns, be SURE to turn off the antialiasing when you export your pattern. The software will try to "soften" the edges, albeit the white lines. My sincerest apologies to you both. I will be more diligent in the future. The corrected file has been sent to Damien.

    PS, Great Dip... even with my bad pattern.
  • gardnerdddgardnerddd Posts: 220Member, Business Ninja ✭✭✭
    @studebaker - Thanks for the update. No problem, I have certainly done that more than I care to share. Thanks again for all your hard work.
