Is there a way to prevent print from smudgin?

I was wondering if there is a way to get that inject print stays on the label, but without sprays.
Does it help to have media warm, or to dry it with hair dryer or infrared light, after printing?
Any other good tips how to get the inkt stick better?

thanks a lot,


  1. Do not use pigment based inks.
  2. Be sure your density is not too high. Ink should be dry to touch within a couple minutes.
  3. Use TY Watershield or Verbatim AquaAce media.

Imation AquaGuard matte is not scratching like when you use Watershield or AquaAce and is more resisting of smearing also.
