    If you ordered plastics from CPR since they changed to their new printing format (these new plastics seem to have a thick, satin white backing layer), be sure to check them rather than just throwing them on a shelf for later.

    I ordered a set of plastics, but they arrived with paint chipping on the edges. This set had a plastic backing material which was mostly falling off on its own, so I didn't really have to peel anything. A replacement set with the original style paper backing was also chipping when peeled off. Attempting to clean & rub off the residue from the laser cutter also seems to lead to some chipping.

    I don't know what the scope of this issue is. It could be limited, or it could be as much as all newly printed plastics. CPR does not have a solution as of yet for preventing the paint from chipping, so this is just an FYI to check your plastics for potential issues for now.

    I noticed this on the Mata Hari Plastics I got, luckily the 2 pieces of plastic that had it were the key fobs so I didn't really care, bummer its happening on other pieces!

    I thought CPR was using ink, not paint. Using paint instead of ink explains it all.

    Shoot, i have 2 sets of plastics sitting on a shelf right now, I should check them. At over a hundred bucks a pop, they better be perfect.
