    I have some temporary outdoor 18 x 24 corr signs to do. Unfortunately I wasn't paying attention and don't have enough printable vinyl.
    Supplier is out of stock.
    Anyone's thoughts on using regular white vinyl ( ie Orical 651 ) to print on? These probably won't b up for more than a few weeks.

    I don't see why that wouldn't be alright.

    I did a test print a few weeks ago on some of our cut vinyls, aside from very obvious banding because I didn't have a profile for them, it didn't seem to print poorly.

    Should be fine - if it fits in the printer and doesn't cause head strikes it's printable (mostly).

    Just remember, they will go down a little differently.

    depending on printer it should work fine...may have to play with heat settings to help with receptivity and prevent buckling

    Thanks everyone! I printed a few and they seem fine. Now it will be back to the "Old School" of mounting without any air egress.
    Wrinkle city here I come!;)
