    Has anyone else noticed in Oracal's new color chart that the Minimum Outdoor Durability rating on 651 (intermediate) has changed? Under the specs, it says:
    I notice on their website they have
    If 4 years is correct, that's a huge drop!!

    According to Oracal Rep I talked to a couple years ago. Here in AZ the durability is not as long as other places and they will only honor the warranty up to 1 year for product failing. Have heard that from a lot of sign guys around here. Never had a problem with anyone but I do tell them that 651 is only good for about 3 years here. Usually around the 3 year mark it will start to crack on corners.

    I tell most people that intermediate is 2-3 year realistically anyway...and go with high performance vinyl.
