    We are looking to print thick plastic cards on our indigo. We were thinking 15mil pvc with 10mil laminate. Any suggestions on this or anyone that is currently doing this?

    No, 15mils is the equivalent of 0.015" or 15pt or 0.381 millimeters thick

    Its possible on S2 sheet-fed Press. I did it but only with new blanket for 10-20 sheets. Better to put primer on that pvc.

    I used to run thousands of 12x18 14 mil vinyl on our old 5600. GPA is a decent vendor for plastics and vinyls.

    When you were running the 14 mil vinyl, were you using a laminate on the front and back?
