    I have never used Perf Vinyl before.

    1. Can it be laminated?
    2. How long does the print last if it isnt?

    Thanks!

    You have to use an optically clear laminate too.

    +1. You should definitely laminate it if you can. I use Oracal 3675 with the 290-F laminate. Never had a problem with it if it is installed correctly.

    I spray mine(Solvex) with S-W's Kut-in-Klear. We get about 18 months on the ones we send to AZ and CA. East Coast we get 2+ years.

    It depends on the usage? Is it long term or short term?
    We print perf vinyl for monthly change-outs, we do not laminate.
    If its a vehicle, then Id say yes laminate with a Optically clear, and edge seal tape on the edges, you don't want wipers or the rolling up and down of the windows to start peeling it up. I would also cut back 1/8-1/4 inch in on all sides to prevent any peeling.

    +1! But yeah... whoever you get your supplies from should be able to outfit you with it. I get it through Fellers.
