    We generally use Avery 900 series cast vinyl for the majority of the kiss cutting and signage we make and install but I am finding that the backing is quite hard for our RollsRoller to apply app tape to without creasing constantly. Can anyone recomend a better product with a stay flat liner that won't constantly crease?

    In case you haven't already, you may want to try taping the leading edge of your graphic to the roller table with masking tape before you apply your app tape. We never have a creasing problem with our RollsRoller when taping cut vinyl, but this is the method I use to hold the front edge in place before I start applying the tape and I think that has a lot to do with it. Aside from that, we use Orafol products almost exclusively in our shop and I think it has a slightly heavier carrier sheet. 20190718_104616.jpg 20190718_111428.jpg

    You say "kiss cut"... are you doing a true kiss cut or do you just mean contour cutting on your plotter?

    Never thought about doing that, I'll give it a go.
    Will look into Orafol as well. Thanks!

    We use the terminology Kiss Cut but contour cutting is another. Same as the photos jsmoritz posted above.

    I don't know if you saw this or not, but the business name got cut blurry. I think your blade offset is a tad off.
