    Does anyone have a suggestion for a floor graphic vinyl that doesn't need to be over laminated? I've heard of Alumigraphics but haven't had any to test with and they are rather expensive.

    We've been using Traffic Graffic from General Formulations with their overlaminate but we have a large order coming in and no laminator. Overlaminating manually for a few graphics here and there is okay, if a pain in the six, but doing that for a quantity of 54, 36" circles is on the insane side.

    Or does anyone have a recommendation on a cold roll laminator?

    Just got a roll of Continental Walk & Wall. Seems really good for temporary stuff. Has slip and fire certificates. Other option is outsourcing.

    I have a great material like the others but my product is about $0.56 sq.ft and its a UL slip resistant already without lam needed.

    My version comes in 38"x150' so it would be a great size for that job.

    That's a great deal. When I use up this material I'll have to check yours out. Walk & Wall is 42"x82'. Real weird size, and $1.12 sqft.

    Sounds like a plan, yes this material is going to do very well for those applications!

    That's a way better size for almost every job we run! The amount of waste we've had off 54" rolls on floor graphic and other materials is stomach twisting!
