Do some searching of old posts as this has been covered extensively before. Just make sure you don't fall for the same mistake as others have made before: banner vinyl is not the same as curtain sider vinyl.

I know one supplier - APA in Slough. Prices vary from 8 to 15 squids a metre at 610mm wide, depending on brand.

Big G

APA do there own brand of curtain vinyl and none other. Price is no where near £15 not even for 1220mm. They do not sell the other curtain vinyl made by Avery which is more expensive.

Also APA are near Dartford/ East london on 020 8311 4400 not Slough
:) Thought I d help you out there mate

don't take this vinyl lightly it is like no other vinyl, no second chances. Always make sure the curtain is well cleaned and made very tight before application. If you are really unsure get someone to hold a big board inside for each area of application.
Good luck[/quote]

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that APAs vinyl was £15, just curtain vinyl in general.

We use Avery Signflex and wet apply with great results. With all vinyl applications its finding the right technik.
When dry applying take care sticks down hard straight away, especialy when warm.
All the best
