    If I knew I could have sold mine I would have kept them, I tossed them away along time ago. I had the 36" and 48" I think there were 3 of each in different lenghts upto 8' long

    Let me tell you, the things junk!
    Stick to transfer tape.
    You'll get bubbles till the cows come home!
    You can't consistently use action tac on it & it's tack is junk. You'll mess up more vinyl than you think your saving on tape.

    I have a 24x36 and 24x72 and like mine...
    Gotta keep them clean, wipe it with windex now and then. We use the High Tac tape. The Med & Low have not been useful for us yet.

    If it were any better than tape
    we'd be using it.

    Save your money.

    When we hired a new installer a couple of years ago she kept asking for one
    so I bought the 18"(or20") set of 2. She uses them constantly and we have
    save many hundreds of dollars on premask. They don't work for everything-
    but once you get on to them they are a real time & money saver. And no
    bubbles- that is application technique no matter what method you use.

    Yeah I don't dig those either.
     
  12. I have saved hundreds on transfer tape in the last 5 years we have used it. I can do about 50 two sided 18 x 24 coroplast signs before even thinking about changing the film. We clean it with Windex and it perks the film back to about orginal tac. Can't use it everywhere but on some projects it's great. Just another tool that can save you money. We actually make our own frames from scrap aluminum and pad the edges to keep it from scratching our substrate. Use hevay tac only, everything else is useless.

    The Big Squeegee will do those big jobs 3-4 times faster than the speed press without any bubbles.
