    It does not appear to be an available choice from any vinyl manufacturer that I know of. I just ran through all of our color cards without any luck. I thought maybe 3M might offer a Brown or Dk. Brown in their 1080 Matt Wrap series but no luck there either. Looks like time to get creative with some Krylon Clear Matt, ClearJet Matt or 0000 Steel Wool.

    3M just released a matte brown metallic in the 1080 line, not sure of it's availability, though.

    This, +1. Not for vehicle graphics though, too much abrasion. ... and damned if it's on a vehicle, people try to rub it with their greeezy fingers.

    Thanks for the "alternative" ideas.....The vinyl is for decorative monogram tiles.....I will have to give these a shot and see how they work and look.....

    Why not just cut a paint mask, and do it with a matt paint, they make plenty of great materials that bond well with ceramic work. just wet dry sand them to give a surface for it to grab at, throw down your paint mask, paint and then you can take the whole thing and clear coat with a matt clear.

    for matte vinyl colors, I usually use translucent cast - works great on white substrates
