    I take it youre printing this, Cast Cast Cast and Laminate it or it wont last. If you just lettering with cut vinyl, calendered will do.

    If you don't have a laminator, you need to look into getting a "Big Squeegee". I also would use cast, unless the customer didn't want to pay the difference. Print on cast and laminate with cast UV laminate.
