    What are you guys using for laminate on larger signs? Say 4'x8' or 6'x10'?

    Material choice is usually dictated by need.

    What kind of sign, how is it being used, how long, etc...

    When in doubt, a nice cast gloss usually does the job.

    6x10 I'd use spray or roll on. 4x8 can easily be laminated by hand using
    soapy water, you need a large flat surface to work. Some laminates have
    a problem with backing paper getting wet (3M) not so with Oracal. I have no
    experience with any other.

    Usually the manufacturer has a matched laminate for the print material.

    3M-3M
    Oracal-Oracal
    etc...
