SOURCE: Manual tray feed problem on Xante Platemaker 3 laser printer

You may have to change your settings in the program you're printing from to say "tabloid" instead of the plate size. You basically set everything to make the printer think it's printing 11x17 paper instead of a plate. The only thing I leave the same as a plate is the setting in Quark that says, "Media Type". I leave it on Polyester Plate.

Screen Setup


Do you mean for screen printing? How many colors? You need to assign specific LPI's, angles and dot type depending what you are trying to print. Your art also might need to be set up better. Can you send link to image and print?

Did yor even find a resolution to this problem? I am having a similar issue. I have ink transferring from the non image area of the plate to the blanket. I can't see the toning on the plate but I sure do see the ink on the blanket.

Image enlarging when plating!


hi pip,
check your mac properties, if it is a PC powerchip, you may have to enable "Rosetta" in the indesign applications properties folder.
this may resolve the file print size conversion process.
Rosetta is inbuilt in mac with this type of powerchip, and when activated, works in the background..
http://www.apple.com/rosetta/ this link will give u an insight
not sure this is your answer....cheers rooboy
