which vinyl will stick to polyethylene?

weeding

I do a variation on Steve and Carries reverse weed....

If possible i put the app tape on, apply to the substrate as usual and remove app tape and weed the unwanted sections out from there, leaving all the little bits stuck...or i'll cheat and print on the gerber!!
