    I need information about this combination. I usually use 3M for 3M but I have a roll of Orajet 290 on my shelf. Do you think I will run in trouble?
    Thank you

    the only problem would come if you had a failure and took it up with 3m or ora...they would not help out because you went against their prescribed material combination...

    We used that combo. Now we use Avery but love the lam. Its very glossy. If your doing something crazy use the Oracal 293 lam.

    I've used that combination many times for many years. Never had a problem.

    It's what we used for a long time, but have a customer that insists on a 3M/3M combo so we switched.

    I like glossy looks of 290G. It is the reason why I use oracal more then 3M....final product looks better. Orajet is really white compare to 3M (yellowish white). I just got very cheap roll of controltac (30% original price) and I really don't want to buy new roll of lamination film for it. I don't post to much on the forum but I read it every day.
    Great people and fantastic help. Thank you so much.
