When supplying printed tabs that get Mylar, avoid excessive amounts of press powder because it can affect the adhesion of the Mylar.
When Mylar is attached to a tab, it is heated in excess of 350° which can make some conventional inks look like tie die on most stocks. Use heat-resistant and wax -free inks and varnishes when supplying printed tabs to help eliminate this problem.
Porous stocks are optimum for Mylar jobs because air has the ability to escape into the paper. Uncoated, 110# index stock is the most commonly used. Coated stocks, along with heavy ink coverage, can trap air and create bubbles that can distort the readability of the tab.
