    Has anyone used these vinyls and how did they compare?

    I have looked at the Orcal chart, and know the spec differences mil thickness, removable/permanent etc...

    Looking more for real world comparisons and thoughts on print quality, install (conform ability), shrinkage, etc...

    I have never used the 3169RA but have used the 3651RA. IMO the 3651RA is a little thicker then 3651 and takes a little more DF to cut and weed, applying the 3651RA in solid panels did what it was supposed to do go down without a bubble in sight.

    Print quality was the same from 3651 to the 3651RA. I can't say anything bad about how it conformed, I liked the non RA for conform-ability but the bubbles were awful.

    I still prefer the 3651 over the 3651RA for the cheaper stuff we do.
