    For all Latex users, what are your favorite materials on the kinds of jobs that you specialize in? So many options and looking to highlight some recommendations in our catalogs.

    Thanks!

    For Vinyl, I run:
    Avery 3903 EZ and/or 3M IJ35C

    For Banners, I run:
    UltraFlex JetFlex FL Gloss 13oz. and/or Proveer (our supplier up here) house banner stock.

    For posters I use Latex Gloss poster paper 7mil & 9mil supplied by Josh on this forum (BigFish). Best poster paper I've found by far for latex.
    Funny thing is by the time I pay shipping and import fees, I end up paying DOUBLE what Josh sells this stuff for, but it is still less than we pay up here for an equivalent type of paper. And I still sell it for a very, very good profit!! :smile:

    Oracal is what we use for everything. Have tried Arlon and it is very tempramental on my latex.

    I think I have a bigger range of latex materials than any dealer out there, I would be glad to send over my new price guide if you like.

    Pretty much all Oracal here as well. Good ICC profiles available. One thing I have discovered, no matter what the material or brand, make sure it has a solid paper backer. The poly type backers will melt and cause head strikes. Paper is a must for latex machines.
