    We are providing digital vinyl for a gas station canopy. 4 sides 4' tall 24' long on 2 shorter sides and 102' on the longer sides. We will need a vinyl to cover existing graphics (not letters). We typically use Arlon for other digital applications. Is there a standard vinyl and laminate to use for this application?

    Thanks in advance!

    Been doing these for a pair of gas chains for quite a while now. National graphics company produces all their graphics and sends us 3M IJ180 vinyl.
    I work a LOT with Arlon 6000xrp and would say this would be just as good, if not $$$better.

    For canopies, rock a scissor lift and you'll fly through the wrap.

    whatever you use, like high performance, the old will show through. some kind of a wrap material with a grey backer. i say "cheaper" because those panels are all flat, right? cheapo vehicle wrap stuff works fine on flat surfaces. get to curves and not so much!
