    I would like to hear opinions on what people recommend as the best chrome vinyl for application over vinyl on flat surfaces. We get a lot of truck drivers requesting this, although I'm not too keen on the looks of it. My main concern is durability. We are looking to reorder soon and I'd like to hear opinions. Currently we are using chrome vinyl from Creative Film Corp. I'd just like to know if there is anything that might be better/more suitable for outdoor jobs. We are entertaining the idea of reordering the Oracal series 351 chrome polyester film.

    we use 351...we've used Avery too..It all sucks to work with...although since we use oracal we stick with that. It's durability sucks, it sucks to weed, etc...lol

    anything that's metalized polyester is going to crack and cloud and look like hell outdoors.

    the only chrome vinyl I use is GMS high bond convex. http://www.shopgms.com/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?preadd=action&key=CCHB1510S

    It's expensive as hell but it's the only thing even nearly comparable to the 210 deluxe that gerber used to have. -And it's actually vinyl and not polyester. Dont forget to laminate it.
