Exterior grade chrome vinyl

I have a customer looking for chrome vinyl lettering on his van.

Can anyone suggest a quality material at reasonable cost? Just fitting to flat panels on a Vivaro

Thanks

John

Not sure what brand it was but I bought one from Europoint that I believe was a 5 year exterior grade. Customers van is a 12 plate so been on for 5 years now & it still looks good. Sure Europoint will know what brand it was as the same people still work there despite the changes :lol: :lol:

The R take material worked well..... Very metallic....like thick kitchen foil.

Customer loved it which is the main thing.

Thanks for sharing John

Did you need to change plotter settings?
How did your blade prosper?

Re: Exterior grade chrome vinyl

I was surprised..... Cutter pressure was the same as for normal vinyl and I have continued using the same blade so there may have been a little extra wear on it but certainly not much.
