1 Mil Printable Vinyl Suggestions?

Discussion in 'Labels and Decals' started by shepherddesigns, Jan 20, 2017.

  1. So, quick background. I've been making small cut decals using Oracal 751. I really like how thin and weedable the material is. I often make customized window decals with letters around 1" tall. I have a HP L315 and have been playing around with a 3M IJ180 / 8518 combination and really do not like how thick the final product is. Weeding has been a nightmare. I found that both 3M and Oracal have 1 mil laminates, but it doesn't appear anyone has a 1 mil printable substrate. Any ideas or know of any material that may work better for printed/cut decals.

    Thanks.

    You just need to get a 60 degree blade to cut the laminated material with. That will solve your problem with the weeding.
     
  3. Have you found that using a 60* blade is better for perf cutting as well, or would the 45* work fine?

    It should be better for perf cut in theory but I don't have any experience with it other than playing around a little bit.
