Calendered applied over cast

    I had read a discussion somewhere a while back about using cast laminate over calendered digital print media that stated that cast over calendered vinyl is okay but never the other way around.

    So my question is is it not acceptable to place cut calendered vinyl over cut cast vinyl? For example, if I were to apply Oracal 651 calendered lettering over an Oracal 751 cast drop shadow would there be issues later on down the road when applied to a flat surface? Any feedback on why this would either be acceptable or a bad idea would be great. Thanks.

    They shrink and contract at different temps so its not a safe idea to do so.

    Thanks for the quick response. I had a feeling that was going to be the answer I would get and it's a good thing to know. I appreciate the feedback.
