prysmatic cut text where to source

Hi all i have a fire engine in for repair and for the first time ever the text along to body is cut from 3m 4084 white diamond grade reflective. I dont think My plotter will cut this, so i would be looking to cut in vinyl and place on the material and hand cut it. As i have a frozen shoulder this is not looking promising. Has anyone cut text out of this product before or know of a company that can? The text spans apx 170cm and is 7cm hight in Crille font. Thanks for reading

Give Chapter 8 Highways a call, they'll be able to cut it and seal the edges so no water ingress.

Unfortunately they can only cut orilite engineering material which i can cut myself. It has to match what is there now so back to square on i think :shake:

diamond grade needs edge sealing so you are better to use someone who cuts it all the time rather than hand cutting. I would think as Derek said William Smith i've tried others and found smiths to be one of the best

Re: prysmatic cut text where to source

Hi All, Ive placed an order with William Smith, they had the material and can cut from my PDF. Only drawback is the text being 70mm high they are unable to seal the edges. I cant worry too much about that as the text thats on the other side was done 11 years ago and was also not sealed. Thanks for everyones imput and have a great weekend

running a normal vinyl sealing pen around it can help, could be what be done on the otherside as if water seeps behind diamond grade you can see it
