    Does any one know of a cast vinyl in colors (I know that black does) that can be put over a portion of the plastic on an interior lit cabinet to cover up some copy that the cutomer does not want right now. I have tried oracal 751C red and the it does not cover up the lettering at night when the lights of the cabinet come on. I also can laminate the red over the black but would rather skip that if I could find something else.

    3m makes a blockout vinyl

    3M™ Blockout Film 3635-20B

    This film blocks light transmission when applied to internally illuminated signs and enhances a neon-type effect when used on the second surface of clear acrylic. It is white on the face side; black on the back side.

    Duct tape or scrim backed pressure sensitive tape in silver or black. 3M and Johnson & Johnson sell it. Most cost effective block out known to date.

    Reflective vinyl

    Ended up using the 3M reflective vinyl, also thanks for the duct tape reply but I keep that for special occasions with my girlfriend.
