Static Electricity Buildup on Cardstock

Static electricity can build up between PVC cards causing them to stick together. When 2 cards or more are “stuck” together you will have feeding issues from the card hopper.

If you attempt to pick up a few cards by the edges you may notice that they stick together. This is caused by static build up on the surface of the cards.

Possible Resolutions

  1. Fan out the cards carefully handling by the edges
  2. Use canned air to blow through the edge of the stack of cards
  3. Change to a higher grade card stock
