    Been doing inventory / organizing and have come to the conclusion that we have too much digital material on hand.
    Told the boss what I am finding stuck in that corner, under those tables, etc... and he wants it stream lined so there are minimal materiel mix up during production and easier to label the rolls as well as being able to get better pricing for higher volume purchases.


    What I would like to get to is

    Digital vinyl,
    3751 RA With LAM
    3651 RA With LAM

    Banner 13oz
    30"
    36"
    54"
    63"

    Banner 18oz block-out
    54"

    Photo grade paper

    Reflective
    5600

    Window perf
    50/50


    I am curious what other shops have done to reduce inventory and what are deemed the MUST HAVE digital materials to have on hand.

    We "try" to stick to a similar line up... It just seems like we always get some kind of odd job where we have to order other rolls and then they just pile up again. I would add a roll of Phototex into your lineup.

    with most suppliers in the US offering free shipping and next day delivery, I really don't see the need to carry more than 1 roll of each in stock.

    In regards to your vinyl choices, I think you are missing a cheap down and dirty vinyl for doing things like golf signs and coroplast signs, 3651RA is a great vinyl, but it is overkill for some signs, I reccomend getting a nice think matte vinyl with grey adhesive to use for the down and dirty jobs.

    3641 is what we use for the "budget minded" customers

    That is pretty much what I have, and about 40 rolls of color vinyl.
