using edge to print numberplates

Is anyone using an edge to print numberplates. If so how are you doing it? I have tried printing onto the reflective but it can have problems like creasing and also it is expensive to do one set of plates. Another disadvantage is the adhesive back requires vinyl to cover it. Can you get a reflective...

Folex laser sheets.

Nik, reading a previous topic I see you use these type of sheet for making positives from a laser printer. Could you perhaps help me with the name of a supplier and rough idea of cost. I have a Panasonic laser and I would like to use it for this purpose.

Thanks in advance Ian Rankin

I would be interested in a price as well. I have just built a new bench 54" x 264" and feel I would be better investing now before it gets wrecked. Can you get this material in a long roll or must it be in pieces. Do they look like the smaller self healing layered mats or are they like the white kit...

how do i apply pinstriping to lorries?

I have to apply pinstriping to the doors and various other panels of a lorry.
The striping is 3mm wide black and the corners have to be scalloped.
I would appreciate any advice on how to approach this job as it has to be done on site with I have no doubt a few onlookers.
Regards Ian Rankin
