cheers shane, we have a small router.

I think he's after a quick cheap solution, and that seems like we'd have to charge quite a bit, especially if he wanted the letters large

Anyone else got a solution using the vinyl cutter, not a router

We also have been using ClearShield Gloss VG ( vehicle graphic ) type, with okay success. However if your app tape is too sticky, it can rip some of the clearcoat layer off t...

thanks for all your help

Thanks for all your help. Especially the tip on leaving the paint for 24 hours. Youre right the body shops do want to get the vans out quick, so we've been putting the vinyl on almost as soon as they've finished.

Thanks all

It is in their interests to use us to re-sign up the vans as we are so close, and as they are one of the biggest providers of their trade in the area, we are getting a lot of work thr...

...sorry, and as an afterthought.....

Does the shape being domed have to be regular ( like a square or a circle.), as we require the shapes to be designs / lettering / smiley faces etc...all cut out of relatively small areas of vinyl.
