    Anyone use CC500 by Gen.Formulations?

    I've never used it, but it's significantly cheaper than any other polymeric vinyl... should I consider it or... ?

    Any real life feedback would be great.

    I'm looking at using it in black in particular as block out.

    General Formulations is good stuff. We've used their print vinyls and colored vinyls for years and have never had a problem. I like their plotter vinyls (both cast and calendered) butter than anybody else's, it cuts and weeds perfectly. Their products have been more consistent than any other manufacturer in our experience.

    GF's stuff often ends up as the "house brands" at vendors. Grimco sells it as their Brite Line vinyl (both print and colored), Fellers sells it as their ShineRite and Permacast colored vinyls.

    I'm personally not a fan of their cut vinyls, but their 5 year calendered is great.

    I use their briteline 5 year vinyl from grimco. Their 3 year is 20-30 bucks less, and the backing paper is garbage, and wraps in ANY humidity causing tons of head strikes.

    To be honest the only thing i use intermediate print vinyl for is real estate signs..
