A stripping blade for stripping paper or other substrates from a cylindrical imaging surface, is mounted at a skewed angle to make tangential contact at one end of the cylinder outside of the imaging area to avoid contact with the imaging surface and with any toner (liquid or dry powder) deposited in the imaging area. This design provides a given length of blade edge ex-tending from the point of contact over the imaging surface where the blade edge is sufficiently close to the imaging surface to strip the sheet therefrom.
