    Has anyone else received any Oracal digital media, cast or cal, with this weird pattern of dents in it like something was stacked on top?

    Our last roll of 3651 clear has some random black specs embedded in it. 2 or 3 rolls of 3M IJ180c V3 ago, there was a whole intact fly trapped between the vinyl and the backer. Print, laminated, and installed it, and you couldn't even tell. I hate working with clear vinyl, its so hard to color match and the tiniest imperfection shows.

    Does your box say made in Germany?

    3105ht at least isn't being made in USA due to covid hitting the plant hard.... So they're bringing it in from Germany now. I imagine other vinyls are the same.... So a much longer way to travel, which means more dents or crushed boxes.

    No dents, but a roll of 3651 had black streaks going right down the middle of half the roll.
