Sign Making Vinyls

Choosing the right vinyl
There are many factors which govern which vinyl to use.
1. Is the signage long term or temporary?
2. If external, what are the prevailing weather conditions?
3. What are the body work configurations?
There are two types of vinyl, and two types of adhesive, which can
be used on both types of vinyl face film. Using the right vinyl for an
intended application is vital, both to the installer, and his satisfied client.
