    Just get the 3651G which is made for printing or if you want to spend little more get 3551 or 3551RA

    3651 is the 651 comparable to print on but it isn't recommended for vehicles. It's still not cast and will shrink a bit and doesn't conform well. Go to Oracal's site and look at their product list. There is a chart of what's what, how long they last, what is recommended for printing, for vehicles, types of adhesives... ...

    3651 and 651 might be the same product (cal vinyl), just the 651 being used more for cutting is not rolled in a perfectly clean environment so there may be contaminants when being rolled and thus show up when printing. I use 751 cast often to print on and most times is not an issue. If you are doing only smaller stuff it's not a big deal if you have to reprint if something shows up. The cast media would be better for vehicle graphics and of course laminate. The RA products make it easier to apply.
