All print supplies stock the stuff you need, but beware it is VERY stickly, and once applied, its applied, or so I have heard :wink:

Hi There,

If you havent used it before , peter is right its VERY difficult to remove , cheaper infact to get a new tarpaulin than pay the man hours to shift it.

not sure how long it takes for the glue to go off
but when i used it you could peel it back off no problem but the following day don't even think about it.

Hiya

That sounds like the stuff i need, would you know if its expensive ?
I don't need huge amounts but it will be used in a marine environment so has to be good.

It depends how you classify expensive, if it does the job, and your customer is happy then its not expensive.

Call all print supplies for a price, it is probably more reasonable than you think

If it was me and it was only a quite simple design, I would stencil and ink it........Simple to do and will last forever.

Grey Macmask which can be cut on your plotter.

Apollo ink and the appropriate thinner.

But be warned, once it goes on you can't remove it without ruining your canvas.
