Printing Tips!

When printing 5Mil TerraSlate, use the regular paper or the glossy paper setting for the best results. 

Consider UV nano-coating for the best toner protection on applications such as menus, or ask us about our printing services. This will eliminate the possibility of toner transfer if sheets are stacked wet and left to dry.

What is TerraSlate made of?

TerraSlate is made from military-grade polyester and is made without layers which means that it will never delaminate, crack, peel, or fray at the corners.  It prints equally on both sides as the front and the back are exactly the same.  TerraSlate prints quickly and easily at high speed with low amounts of static electricity.  It is FDA Food Contact Safe, colorfast, and can be both sanitized and washed with soap and water.

Can I print and write on it?

TerraSlate can be written on with a ballpoint pen or a Sharpie.  Pencil also works but can smear in some situations.  It is compatible with laser printers, copy machines, and digital printing presses but is not compatible with inkjet printers.  If you would like us to print TerraSlate for you on our ultra-high-end digital printing presses at industry-leading rates, send an email to printing@terraslate.com or click here to read more about our printing services.

Is it of archival quality?
