Question on Material choice

    I'm quoting a job for a customer that will be for 40 decals that are 24"x24" and they will be applied on the inside of the main toilet doors (in the mall) and some on the walls in the toilets. This will have to be up for a few months.
    I was wandering which material would be the best for this.

    I prefer Oracal, but you could suggest anything.

    Thanks

    Your description is a little vague. What type of walls, drywall, concrete, metal...?
    What is the material on the bathroom doors, metal, plastic, wood...?
    Also, will YOU have to remove these in a few months, or will they do it?

    To be safe, I'd use something with a removable adhesive like an IJ-40 with laminate.
    Should stick to about anything, the lam will prevent any scuffs and protect the ink from chemicals.
    Then if you have to remove it will come off cleanly and without much mess.

    It will go on tiles if on the wall. I believe they are painted metal doors.

    Again, I'd probably still go with something with a removable adhesive just to be safe - especially since it's temporary.
    You can always go with a cheap economy vinyl with permanent adhesive but it will fight you when you go to remove.

    Just my .02¢
