I have a 24 inch Z3100 printer, and use it mostly to make 24 x 36 inch prints on HP Instant Dry Semi Gloss Paper. This is nice enough paper, but I noticed that with dark-tone prints, the surface is very susceptible to small scratches.
I am actually looking for plastic or Polyethylene, envelope or glove-like "bags" that I can temporarily store my prints in (I'm thinking disposable maybe, just one print per "bag"), from the moment they come out of the printer until I deliver them to my clients or to be mounted, to minimize the risk of scratches and smudges. And also to minimize the risk of them getting scratched when I roll them up for transportation. I am thinking like the plastic most smaller sized papers are put in before the manufacturer puts them in the box.
Anyone know if this exists in this format or any other suggestions? How do you protect your large format prints between the moment they come out of the printer and they go to your clients?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Already learnt a lot on this forum!
