We have done round static cling tax disks but found that it leaves nicks in the circle when cut.

what we did was cut the static cling on a Camm1 as this did not have the same effect as the PC60 as mentioned before leaving nicks.

We then printed and cut the graphic on white vinyl and overlayed.

We priced these @ around £1.75 each + vat. Design was just 2 spot colours.

Yes.

Used the static cling from Victory, both clear and white. Only problem faced at one time was doing a test application to soon, some of the resin came off on the window glass.

I print onto the static cling direct. Just done some for one of our cars, and used the white ribbon as well.

I did the same as Sharon when first starting out .... I stuck the sample to the window too soon ..... as in almost straight away :roll: :D and then complained like I do ... till I realised my error ... or till Steve realised my error :wink:

We print onto white and clear and leave an unprinted border of a couple of mil around the edge aswell.

Carrie :D

hmmm... I hope that makes sense? :P
